Hair transplants at Seneca
Seneca Medical Group has been running for 35 years across Greece and Europe, with one clinic in Glasgow and two diagnostic centres in Edinburgh & Aberdeen, and specialises in hair transplants as a form of treatment for hair restoration.
The group is passionate about providing people with opportunities and aims to help the local communities by supporting charity events and even organizing tree plantations throughout Greece.
If you are experiencing hair loss or hair thinning issues, you may choose to have a hair transplant. At Seneca, the type of hair transplant that is performed by the trained staff is called a Seneca Direct FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). This is where the hair follicles are extracted from the donor area and implanted directly into the recipient (balding) area.
For this type of hair transplant at Seneca, it is not necessary to shave your hair before the surgery. You should start to see the results of the hair transplant within two months of having the surgery, and it can take up to 12 months to see the full results of the transplant.
Like any cosmetic surgery, hair transplants are an invasive procedure. They are not risk-free and are not to be performed on anyone under 18 years old. Always seek independent medical advice before undergoing any medical procedures.
The surgeon who will be performing the hair transplant at Seneca should provide you with advice and guidance as to how to both prepare for your hair transplant and also how to look after yourself once you have had the surgery, to ensure that your transplant can grow as well as possible.
