Types of hair transplant surgery and treatments
Dr. Nel at The Hair Skin and Wellness Clinic specialises in four types of hair restoration treatments (surgical and non-surgical treatments). A treatment plan will likely contain more than one treatment option to achieve the best results:
- Follicle Unit Extraction technique (FUE):The Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE) method is the most modern surgical hair transplant harvesting technique that involves the harvesting of single hair follicles from the donor area, which will then be transplanted into the recipient area areas where hair loss has occurred. Dr. André Nel is a leading hair restoration specialist, specialising in Follicle Unit Extraction surgery in the UK.
- Follicle Unit Strip Transplant surgery (FUS / T):With Follicle Unit Strip Transplant surgery a strip of hair is harvested from a the donor area on the scalp, and it is then dissected under stereomicroscopic vision where it is divided into grafts containing single hair follicles, to be transplanted into the recipient area.
- Non-surgical (oral and topical) treatments: Non-surgical treatments include oral medications to stop the progression of hair loss, and also topical treatments to promote new and healthy hair growth. Non-surgical treatments or medication may be prescribed in conjunction with your surgical treatment, in order to gain the best results. Other options include state-of-the-art Medical Hair Systems and Scalp Micro Pigmentation.
- Mesotherapy techniques: Mesotherapy involves the injection of a growth factor into the scalp, which will stimulate new and healthy hair growth. Mesotherapy can be used in combination with hair loss surgery or as an individual treatment.
Different hair loss treatments
As can be derived from above, there are surgical and non-surgical options when it comes to hair loss treatments.

A systematic clinical approach is followed in order to rule out different causes, in order to get to the exact diagnosis.
