*The Belgravia Centre is not a hair transplant clinic but this page will provide you with a lot of useful information on surgery. We offer regrowth treatments that in many cases can be more effective than a hair transplant.
Male or Female Pattern (Genetic) Hair Loss only affects the top and front of a person’s scalp. This is because it’s only the follicles in this area that contain receptors sensitive to the hormone that causes hair loss.
If hair is taken from the back or even from the side of the scalp (areas where the hairs are not sensitive to genetic hair loss), and transplanted to the top or front, the hair usually continues to grow and produces hair for life.
Hair transplant techniques have come a long way in the past two decades. The old punch graft technique became obsolete and is replaced by ‘mini’ and ‘micro’ graft transplantation. While the old punch graft technique often created an unnatural, ‘doll hair’ look, modern hair transplant techniques can create a perfectly natural appearance. Today’s ‘mini’ and ‘micro’ graft technique allows single hairs or a natural group of 2 or 3 hairs to be re-planted in the direction of the individual’s natural growth pattern.
Choosing the right combination of medically-proven hair loss treatments can not only prevent further balding, but can help to regrow hair for many men and women who have experienced thinning.
You can view hundreds of Success Stories to see the kind of results that can frequently be experienced from the use of the right combination of treatments for your individual pattern and stage of hair loss. Results can be as good as, if not better than a hair transplant – without the need for surgery.
The success of a hair transplant can often go hand in hand with its cost. Recent reports suggested Wayne Rooney’s hair transplant costed upward of £30,000. The cost of hair transplantation can vary from £3,000 to £30,000 but the price depends on a number of things including the credentials and experience of the surgeon carrying out the procedure, the type of procedure carried out (‘punch graft’ or ‘FUE’ technique) and the number of grafts.
Whilst the hair that has been transplanted will grow as normal, your hair around the transplanted hair, which is still susceptible to thinning, will continue to shed. This is why it is essential to use preventative / regrowth treatments after having a hair transplant – the same treatments that might have regrown hair before undertaking surgery.
Spencer ‘Spex’ Stevenson, a well-known hair transplant mentor in the UK says, “Before you even consider a hair transplant, look into going on a hair loss treatment course for at least six months first, to strengthen existing hair and prevent further hair loss. But once you have achieved maximum results from licensed treatments, if there are still areas of baldness it’s time for a hair transplant. Strip and FUE surgery are both excellent methods when performed correctly – choosing the right surgeon is
vital!”. SPEX is contactable through his website for personal advice.

A Belgravia patient recently experienced some of the best results that our experts have ever seen from the use of a non-surgical treatment programme for hair loss. The patient has used one of Belgravia’s optimum treatment courses for hair loss, inclusive of high strength minoxidil, finasteride 1mg, Hair Vitalics and the HairMax LaserComb. Please note, not all patients will experience regrowth levels this dramatic, but most will see varying levels of increased hair density, some being mild and some being more significant.
