If you are losing your hair, or you have noticed thinning, you may be already looking at having a hair transplant carried out. When you are thinking about having a hair transplant, there are lots of questions you may have. From how long the procedure takes, to how you can protect your new transplant. Getting to grips with the ins and outs of your transplant will then help you make an informed decision.

The Type of Transplant You Want and Need

There are many types of hair transplants, from a full transplant to an FUE transplant. There will be many reasons you will need to weigh up each type of transplant. For instance, if you are thinning all over, or losing your hair, you may wish to go for a full hair transplant to give you the coverage you need. When it comes to establishing what type of transplant you need and want, you can monitor the situation, but then, you must reach out and speak to the experts. They will have the knowledge and experience to recommend a suitable solution for you.

Talking to the Experts

When you have committed to having a hair transplant, you then need to start communicating with the experts. At Harley Street Hair Clinic, their team of experienced experts will be able to guide you through the process. Understanding how a hair transplant could work for you, and talking to those who would be performing the surgery, can give you peace of mind. When you communicate with the experts you get a greater understanding of how a transplant happens, and what crucial stages you encounter along the way. When you get this information, you can then begin to boost your confidence and feel more positive than ever before.

Discussing the Surgery

As well as discussing hair transplant surgery with an expert or specialist, you will also find it beneficial to speak to friends and family. If surgery feels uncomfortable then it is important to discuss these issues with those who know you best. You may have concerns about how a hair transplant will feel, or you may be concerned about how you can protect your new transplant. Speaking to others around you is going to reassure you, and if you can reach out to others who have had a hair transplant, it will be even better as you will get that valuable first-hand experience.

Being Ready: Planning When to Have a Transplant

Once you have decided what transplant you will have, and where you will have treatment, you then need to decide what time is right for you. For example, are you looking to have a transplant, and then have a few days off work afterwards? Or, are you looking to have one carried out in the new year? What time is right for you? Establishing the right time will help you go ahead with the transplant, and help you feel confident and calm.

Protecting Your New Hair

Once you have had your transplant, you are going to need to think about aftercare. Looking after your scalp and hair is important. It is often recommended that washing hair and exposure to heat, chemicals, and even shampoo be avoided for at least 48 hours. After this period, you must be careful with your hair and ensure that you do not expose it to any harsh products that may cause it damage.
