We are proud to announce that DHI Scotland is becoming SENECA.

As hair loss can be observed not only on men’s heads but also on their faces, the best option for a completely natural result that lasts a lifetime is a beard hair transplant.

You don’t need to be a hipster to desire a charming beard on your face. A burly beard is considered one of the sexiest characteristics a man can possess. 

Still, for a lot of guys, growing a beard isn’t as simple as avoiding a razor and letting nature take care of the rest. Stubble doesn’t always grow uniformly on the face, or it might be brought on by hereditary genes that make the development of any kind of beard nearly difficult. In any case, the result is patchy facial hair instead of a stylish beard. 

With years of proven results, beard hair transplants are the most effective way to create new hair growth on the face, as they use your own hair to provide realistic results. 

At what age should you have a beard hair transplant

That’s really up to you. You will normally have to wait until your 30s to see the complete thickening of your facial hair, but you won’t harm anything by having a beard transplant at a young age. 

Things to know about Beard hair transplant:

There are some things you need to know before you take the decision to proceed with a beard hair transplant.

First of all, it is important to know that the procedure leaves no scars behind. The beard hair transplant is performed with modern, specialized techniques and a developed range of tools that leave no visible scars with a diameter equal to or less than 1 mm. One by one the hair follicles are transferred from the donor area in the back of your head to the beard

During the implantation, the surgeon has full control of the depth, direction, and angle of each graft giving you a 100% natural result that lasts for a lifetime. 

Modern beard hair transplant techniques require minimum invasion and are painless under local anesthesia. Most of the patients watch tv, read a book or take a nap during the treatment! 

Once the beard hair transplant has been completed and growth has begun, the hair is permanent. Patients can expect about 90% of their transplanted hair grafts to survive and grow when the procedure is performed by a skilled surgeon. 

It doesn’t sound hard at all, does it? 

A beard hair transplant step by step

At Seneca we have developed the Direct FUE, a revolutionary system that is the evolution of the “traditional” FUE.

To begin with, the doctor thoroughly designs the area of implantation based on medical protocols, the needs of the patient, and the defined symmetry. Hair follicles are extracted one by one from the donor area using a specifically designed disposable tool, with a diameter of 1mm or less. 

Throughout the preservation stage, the follicles are kept at a specific temperature that enhances their development without separating, cutting, or handling the grafts in any way.

When it comes to the implantation, hair follicles are implanted directly into the suffering area, also with a diameter of 1mm or less, without having to create holes or slits. The specialized surgeon can control the depth, the direction, and the angle each transplant is placed. Thus, the new hair does not fall and looks 100% natural. 

Recovery from the beard hair transplant takes about a day or two. The newly implanted hair follicles will come off in a few days. You will, therefore, be able to normally shave and trim your new beard after around 15-20 days. 

At Seneca, we are always there for you before, during, and after your beard hair transplant, with detailed post-op instructions and up to 14 months of follow-up appointments to achieve the best possible results, always ready to answer any questions or provide any kind of help.

In recent years, stakeholders in Greece have launched concerted efforts for the country to emerge as a medical tourism destination given the high level of services provided in both tourism and health. But much more has to be done.

Medical tourism has the potential to provide economic opportunities and its development is now one of the immediate priorities of the Greek Tourism Ministry for 2022-23.

The tourism ministry has said it will cooperate with all agencies including the World Health Organisation (WHO) to promote necessary legislative regulations, so that the country can tap in more effectively to health and wellness tourism.

The ministry already works with the Greek Health Tourism Council (Elitour) and plans to make better use of Greece’s many thermal springs via use of recovery fund money to develop wellness tourism in collaboration with the municipalities.

Elitour has said it plans to create a health, wellness and Greek hospitality village in Athens, to create better living conditions, improve mental health and wellbeing.

Another development area under consideration is hair transplantation. Athens based Seneca Medical Group, which operates hair transplant clinics across Europe is active in the United Kingdom and Greece. The company offers medically advanced hair loss treatments, using a personalised system of diagnosis and 45% of the people that visit the Seneca clinic in Athens for hair loss restoration are from abroad.

There is general agreement that Greece needs to upgrade the country’s tourism infrastructure and health services, so that medical services can be licensed within tourism facilities.

Commenting on the ministry plans, Seneca’s CEO has said it is necessary for the government to create a certification scheme for medical tourism in Greece, and provide subsidies to boost the sector in the country.

Elitour has teamed up with the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels with plans to create travel packages offering health, spa and wellness tourism options. Elitour will work with Greek hotels to get certification for hotels providing specialised wellness services.


The UK government has warned against medical travel to Turkey after 17 British nationals have died following treatment in the country in recent years. The advice from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) urges UK citizens looking to travel to Turkey for medical treatment, elective surgery and dental procedures to undertake detailed research before travelling.

The warning is advisory and has no legal status. Coincidentally it was issued soon after Turkey again refused entreaties from the UK and EU to ban Russian tourists and airlines.

About Turkey’s medical travel sector, the FCDO states:

The FCDO also adds general warning points about medical travel:

Individuals planning overseas treatment are advised to use internationally accredited clinics or hospitals, although using an accredited clinic or hospital does not guarantee a satisfactory outcome.Individuals considering travelling for treatment should discuss their plans carefully with their UK doctor, dentist and/or hospital specialist before committing to any procedure abroad.Travellers should speak directly to the health professional undertaking the planned treatment before travel and check their qualifications and references independently.
