Does Hair Transplant Surgery Really Work?

Yes. Hair transplantation does work when the procedure is performed correctly. It provides patients with a natural look and provides sufficient density in the areas the patient requires.
Achieving excellent results on an ongoing basis can only be done by following a process of total quality management.

It's the fact that it offers a permanent solution for hair loss, often caused by Androgenetic Alopecia as well as other causes.

This means that once the hair transplant surgery has been completed, new hair growth will occur in the affected areas, and no further hair loss of the newly transplanted hair follicles will occur.

This minimally invasive surgery involves specialized techniques where hair follicles are harvested from the safe donor area on the scalp, after which the follicles are then transplanted into recipient sites in the recipient area.


The key to achieving a natural look is by creating a hairline that resembles a non-transplanted hairline. The Hairline, the Part and the Whorl area in the Crown are the most visible areas on the hair bearing scalp. These are the areas where an unnatural appearance can be spotted easily. By applying the principles of hairline design and allowing for a transition zone that flows into a defined zone and having an irregular random external hairline border - these are essential factors that contribute towards establishing a natural look. It requires using single hair grafts in the transition zone, followed by two hair grafts and then three hair grafts in the defined zone which blend into the frontal core. Combine this with correct hair follicle angle and direction along with optimal graft management outside the body and meticulous placement and it all contributes towards creating a natural look.

What Conditions Ensure Success?

Experienced Surgeon & Team

Dr André Nel has many years of experience and expert knowledge, and has learnt from the most world renowned hair restoration surgeons.

Harvesting, Management and Graft Storage

The procedure of harvesting the grafts (‘hair follicles’) is an extremely delicate and specialized procedure. Follicle units are harvested from the donor area via FUE or FUT techniques providing optimal graft protection at all times.

Specialized punches with diameter variance of 0.7 mm to 1.0 mm and customized special forceps are used during the harvesting process ensuring the grafts are not damaged

Grafts are gradually cooled down from body temperature to room temperature and then stored in a specialized graft storage solution at a temperature of five degrees Celsius. The graft storage solution consists of Normal Saline, Hypothermosol and Liposomal ATP.

The grafts are then gradually warmed up to room temperature before being transplanted into the recipient area sites where they again warm up to body temperature.

This minimizes ischaemic reperfusion injury.

Incisions & The Transplanting Procedure

The surgeon ensures that the hair follicles are transplanted in the correct manner throughout the procedure, by correctly making incision angles, direction and depth, as well as ensuring that the follicle unit placement is perfectly executed.
