Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Our second most popular hair transplant technique at The Growth Clinic is Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), which involves removing a small strip of skin from the back of the head.

Our gentle numbing techniques ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure. When the area is numb, we carefully remove a small strip and close the skin using stitches. The strip is expertly trimmed to create smaller individual follicular units. Finally, we create precise micro-incisions in the target area and then place the grafts.

Treatment Process

Dr Richard Consultation


You'll attend a consultation in advance of your procedure. After listening carefully to your needs, your surgeon will collaborate with you to create a personalised treatment plan.

Dr Richard Procedure


During your procedure (typically 6-10 hours), our team will ensure that you're relaxed and comfortable. Afterwards, we'll take time to ensure that you're comfortable with the next steps.



This short period focuses on ensuring that your skin fully heals. Our team will help you follow simple steps, check in regularly, and answer any questions.

Dr Richard


After 12 months, we'll invite you to attend a check-up at our clinic. Should you require ongoing support we will be happy to help.

Is FUT for me?

  • Hair loss type: FUT is suitable for most types of hair loss. It may be particularly appealing to individuals who prefer to avoid shaving the hair on the back of their head, as well as those with afro textured hair.

  • Level of comfort: Before your procedure, we'll ensure that you are relaxed and comfortable. We will then carefully apply local anaesthetic to targeted area to induce numbness.

  • Scaring: FUT typically leaves a small scar along the back of your head, however this isn't usually visible if your hair is worn above grade 3-4.

  • Recovery: The back of your head will begin to improve after 5 days and most other visible signs will have disappeared after 2-3 weeks. We use dissolvable stitches, so you don't need to worry about returning to remove them.

  • Regrowth: You can expect initial hair regrowth after 6 months and final results after 12-18 months.

  • Age: The Growth Clinic offers hair transplant surgery to patients who are aged 28 and above. If you are younger than 28 and experiencing hair loss, we are happy to provide a hair loss prevention consultation. Please get in touch if you'd like to arrange this.


Following a consultation with our surgeon, we'll determine the number of grafts you require and provide exact pricing.
