how does a hair transplant work?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that removes bald or thinning areas of the scalp. You may also hear a hair transplant referred to as a “hair restoration” or “hair replacement” procedure.

Our hair transplant procedures remove small grafts of hair from donor areas of the scalp. Also called “donor sites,” these areas of the scalp are located at the back of the head, the nape of the neck, and above the ears. These areas are usually not affected by hair loss caused by certain medical conditions, making the donor sites optimal for obtaining hair grafts for a hair transplant. The hair is removed in small, natural clusters or follicular units that have between 1-4 hairs each. These units are usually 0.75-1mm wide.

As experienced medical professionals, we’re dedicated to a patient focused approach, putting in the effort to discover the perfect solution for your overall physical and emotional well-being.

Once the hair grafts are removed, hair follicles are checked and cleaned under a microscope. This is essential to ensure the success of each follicle. Once they’ve been checked and cleaned, the follicular units are stored in a special holding solution. During this time, the surgeon works to create recipient sites where hair loss is a problem on the scalp.

The surgeon will then transplant the follicular clusters to create a natural-looking hairline. The entire process can take between 4-8 hours, though the time necessary varies, depending on how much scalp area needs to be treated for hair loss.

This is only a general overview of a hair transplant procedure. Your actual procedure may vary slightly, depending on the surgeon’s recommendations.

Why Choose the Hair Dr?

Recognised Experts by the NHS

First, we’re recognised as an expert in all forms of alopecia by the NHS. We are one of the very few clinics in the UK that takes referrals directly from the NHS for the following:

  • Hair loss caused by burns or acid injury
  • Craniosynostosis
  • Repair surgery for botched hair transplants causing psychological illness
  • Scarring and non-alopecia
  • Female hair loss due to pulling the hair too tightly, also known as traction alopecia

You can ask your GP or NHS specialist to write us a referral letter since we’re recognized by the NHS as experts in treating these and other hair loss issues.

We stand out as one of the rare full-time hair transplant clinics in Europe. We take pride in our committed and highly trained staff, who work in close collaboration with our experienced Hair Dr surgeons to meticulously implant each follicular unit.

Unlike many others, we exclusively focus on providing hair transplant services. Our expertise lies in delivering consistently successful and authentically natural results.

Hair Transplant York FAQs

There are two primary techniques: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUT involves removing a strip of scalp from the donor area, while FUE involves extracting individual follicular units directly from the scalp.

Recovery time varies, but most patients can return to work and normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. The transplanted hair may fall out within a few weeks, but new growth typically begins within a few months.

The cost of a hair transplant varies depending on factors such as the extent of baldness, the technique used, and the surgeon’s experience. It’s best to schedule a consultation with a qualified surgeon to receive an accurate cost estimate.

Researching online reviews, asking for recommendations from friends or family, and consulting with multiple clinics can help you find a reputable hair transplant clinic in York. Ensure the clinic is staffed by qualified surgeons and has a track record of successful procedures.

Suitable candidates for hair transplants are individuals with male or female pattern baldness, thinning hair, or those who have lost hair due to injury or surgery. A consultation with a qualified surgeon is necessary to determine candidacy.

I can’t praise and thank Dr Arshad and his wonderful team enough. I never thought I'd say this again but my hair is amazing. I’m now at the 8 month stage and my hair is back. I have my hairline back and I still have a long way to go, so it’s only going to get better and better. Thicker and thicker! I’m sure by 12 months it will be amazing.

I give the Hair Dr a 5 star review because I truly believe it to be a 5 star experience. Anyone considering this procedure I would 100% recommend the Hair Dr. In terms of the recovery a few weeks of down time will be well worth it in the long run if you are, as I was, suffering with confidence issues with your hair.

Day 3 of my FUE transplant, have had no pain and little swelling due to the medication provided by the Hair Dr. I found the procedure to be a first class experience, with an easy, calm process to the entire day. Also, the staff were really friendly and took great care of me. If you're looking to get a transplant done, I highly recommend the Hair Dr.

I had carried out a lot of research prior to my procedure, especially into the doctors expertise and experience of each clinic I was considering. Dr. Arshad stood out as by far the most qualified and experienced in every aspect. 8 months on I could not be more happy with the results and aftercare.

Just over 1 week since I had my FUE procedure and so far so good! I can't recommend Dr Arshad and his team highly enough. The day of procedure was a great experience, very professional and welcoming. I must also highlight that the aftercare service is unbeatable. I look forward to seeing the results over the coming months.

Dr. Arshad was very knowledgeable and discusses in length what results you personally want to make sure it is definitely something you are going to be happy with and supplies you with everything you need to be able to take care of the healing process on your own. Thank you to every member of staff that worked on my procedure, I appreciate the patience and passion for providing top class work you all have!

York Hair Transplants

Surgeon-Led Clinics

Not all hair transplant clinics in York are led by a surgeon. What does this mean? There may be a doctor (surgeon) in charge of the clinic, but they rely on their technicians to do most of the surgical work. You may find this arrangement in hair loss clinics that charge lower prices and/or in international clinics.

On the other hand, our hair loss clinic York (and our other clinics across the UK) are surgeon-led. You can count on the surgeon offering a consultation where they determine the right treatment for your hair loss. Your surgeon will do the surgery backed by their team of technicians. The technicians do not perform the surgery. Your hair transplant will be done by our experienced and knowledgeable surgeon at each clinic.

Holistic Care

As qualified medical practitioners, our care is patient-centred and focused on the best solution for your physical and psychological health.


When you come to our hair loss clinic York , you won’t have to worry about a lack of support. We believe the aftercare of a hair transplant is as important as the procedure itself. We’ll be here to support you each step of the way, before and after surgery, for as long as you need us.
