An increasing number of men are undergoing hair transplants in Spain, whether because of a receding hairline, balding, a medical issue or hair that is thinning. Losing hair can have a big knock on confidence, but hair transplants can really make a difference – take a look at Wayne Rooney, Elon Musk and John Travolta, to name a few! Hair transplants are rapidly becoming the norm. However, it is extremely important to use an experienced, trusted and qualified professional to carry out the procedure. So, the Euro Weekly News has created this guide to the 10 best clinics for hair transplants in Spain so that you can begin your journey.
According to Web MD, it’s a type of surgery that moves hair you already have to fill an area with thin or no hair. Doctors have been doing these transplants in America since the 1950s, but techniques have changed a lot in recent years.
If thinning up top or going bald really bothers you and affects your confidence, the procedure can be one way to feel more confident about your looks. It is advisable to talk with a health professional first to rule out any medical issues, and then find a qualified and reputable clinic to carry out the procedure.
The cost of a hair transplant can vary, especially from country to country. However, in Spain, the procedure will cost from around €2,500 to €4,500.
The surgeon will clean and numb your scalp and there is a choice of one of two methods for the transplant: follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) or follicular unit extraction (FUE).
With the FUSS procedure, the surgeon removes a 6- to 10-inch strip of skin from the back of your head. This is then set aside and the scalp is sewn together. This area is immediately hidden by the hair around it.
The surgeon’s team then divides the strip of removed scalp into 500 to 2,000 tiny grafts, each with an individual hair or just a few hairs. The number and type of graft you get will depend on your hair type, the quality of your hair, the colour of your hair, and the size of the area where you wish to have the hair transplanted.
For the FUE procedure, the surgeon’s team will shave the back of your scalp. The doctor will then remove hair follicles one by one from there. The area heals with small dots, which your existing hair will cover.
After that point, both procedures are the same. After they prepare the grafts, the surgeon cleans and numbs the area where the hair is being transplanted, creates holes or slits with a scalpel or needle, and carefully places each graft in one of the holes.
Depending on the size of the transplant you are having, the process will take about 4 to 8 hours. You might need another procedure later on if you continue to lose hair or decide you want thicker hair.
Your scalp with most likely be tender after the procedure and you may need to take some painkillers for this. You will need to wear bandages for at least one or two days and you may be prescribed antibiotics or anti-inflammatory medication. However, most people can return to work two to five days after the procedure.
Within two to three weeks, the transplanted hair will fall out and you should start to notice new growth within a few months. The majority of people who have a hair transplant will see 60 per cent new hair growth within six to nine months.
So, now that you know the procedure and the recovery time, you will want to know the best clinics to undergo the procedure in Spain.
