There has been a big increase in the number of men undergoing hair transplants. Hair transplants are becoming more accepted and there are many celebrities that have confirmed that they have undergone the procedure. These well known individuals have proved that the procedure is very effective in treating hair loss. The changes seen following a hair transplant range from subtle to quite dramatic depending on the number of grafts used and areas treated.
At Skin and Follicle, we use the most advanced hair restoration technique, which is the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system. There are only a small handful of centres throughout the world providing this and we are the only ones in the whole of the Midlands.
The list of celebrity hair transplants is growing and below are some well known cases.

How is a hair transplant performed?
There are number of different methods of hair transplant which include strip or FUT and FUE techniques. The strip or FUT involves taking a strip of hair from the back of the head and slicing this to harvest grafts. The FUE method involves taking grafts with a punch from the back and sides of the head. FUE may also be performed using the ARTAS robot. The FUE technique results in less visible scarring and quick recovery.
