Harleys Clinic is the leading cosmetic surgery clinic and the best place to have natural hair transplant. Being the best also puts a great responsibility on our shoulders to provide customer care and satisfaction. Based out of Mumbai, we have patients coming from India, US, UK, Australia, Middle East, Africa and other Countries. We don’t call ourselves best Cosmetic surgery centre but our customers have given this reputation to us.

At Harleys, we use FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplant technique, which is the most natural and successful method of hair restoration. FUE Hair transplant is useful to solve the problems related to hair loss on temples, receding hairline, bald spot on top of head, and scars.

FUE method involves transplanting microscopic grafts of hair follicles from the donor area where there is high density of hair to the recipient area where there is a shortage of hair. In cases of male pattern baldness, the donor area is the back of the head and the recipient area the front of the head. The treatment is minimum invasive compared to older methods.

The procedure: A local anaesthetic is applied to the required areas with a special instrument. Some Anxiolytic is given before the treatment. Each follicular unit is individually taken directly from the scalp with no strip of tissue being removed. Hair follicles are removed in a random fashion and the result is less density in the donor area that many say is not even noticeable. Since follicles are removed one at a time, FUE takes more time compared to the traditional FUT method. FUE is constantly evolving and what was once utilized for only smaller cases is now being utilized for larger and larger cases. Some people that prefer the FUE method may have the option of splitting their procedure into two days in order to complete their recommended transplantation goals. The grafts are placed in a special solution, which protects them against external influences and contains substances that will support the implantation and healing of the grafts. The size of the grafts is 0.75 mm or 0.65mm (depending on hair thickness).

Tiny implantation openings, normally 0.65 mm, are made in the recipient area with a similar special needle that has the same shape as the grafts. The grafts are implanted and fit perfectly into the openings.

Duration of treatment: Treatment up to 1,000 grafts may take 3-6 hours. Treatment of more than 1,000 grafts will normally be done over 2 or 3 days.

Advantages:
# No linear scar.
# The patient will be able to wear his hair much shorter than with a strip harvest.
# The donor area of the head must be completely shaved for the procedure.
# Scars that appear as “tiny dots” are visible if the hair is completely shaved.

Recovery: The treated area may have slight swelling for a couple of days. Scabs may form and fall off within 2 weeks. The skin of the recipient area is mostly healed within 2 weeks. Some or all (average 50%) of hairs in the transplanted grafts drop out in 2-8 weeks. New hair growth occurs from 2-3 months. Final results after around 6 months, after some substantial hair growth. Post-treatment consultation with the doctor is not necessary but is possible at any time in person or by email and phone. The skin of the donor area is healed within 2 weeks. The hair of the donor area is cut short at the treatment, so the area may be visible for some time depending on the length of the hair.
