Our most-effective surgical treatment – Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a surgical technique in which hair is harvested from donor areas leaving only small, circular scars which are almost impossible to see. The procedure requires no stitches and has a fast recovery time.
Had my 1st transplant back in 2018 and just had my 2nd in May 2023. The team made me feel so welcome and made sure any pain was as limited as possible. Cant wait to see the results of my crown grafts. GOODBYE BALD SPOT!
I’m nearly five months post FUE procedure and am already delighted with the results. The whole service – from the initial consultation with Trevor, the procedure itself and the aftercare support from Trish and Sylvia – has been fantastic and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone looking to go down this route. Looking forward to catching-up with them all at my six month check-up soon!
I’ve recently had a FUE transplant at Kensington hair and so far very pleased with the results. I researched many clinics before making my decision and I’m glad I went with KHC. Trish is a very knowledgeable and helpful consultant, and the team are professional and caring.

How it works

FUE treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic. Then between 1000 and 3000 follicle units are carefully harvested and transplanted from your donor area (usually the back of your shaven head) to those parts of your scalp where you’d like more hair.

A 2,000 – 3,000 follicle procedure takes 8 – 10 hours. A procedure needing fewer graft can be completed in as little as 6 hours.

7-10 days after surgery, FUE scars fade dramatically. After 6-7 weeks, they’re usually fully healed and virtually undetectable.

FUE and you

Not everyone is suited to FUE, so we’ll carry out a full assessment to see if you are. If you are a suitable candidate but you’d prefer not to shave your head, speak to our consultants about unshaven FUE.

This takes a little longer in terms of the procedure, but the upside is that it enables a faster return to normal life – which could be beneficial for those who want to keep the procedure confidential.

It’s all about what’s right for you.
