Procedure Overview

Merchant City Medical Group specialise in using the most advanced technologies for both FUE & FUT Hair Transplants.  This ensures that our experienced surgeons use a safe and painless method whilst providing the best possible, lifelong results for our patients.

Follicular Unit Extraction

At Merchant City Medical Group our expert transplant surgeons use the most advanced techniques and innovative equipment when carrying out your FUE procedure.  FUE is widely known to be the best hair transplant technique currently around.  Unlike other hair transplant procedures, FUE works on extracting individual hair follicles from the scalp, with groups of 1 to 4 hairs, using a surgical incision, no bigger than 1.0 mm in diameter.  These follicles are then transplanted into the new area requiring density.  Although less invasive, the procedure itself is very intricate which can lead to FUE taking slightly longer than the FUT method.  But by taking more time with this procedure, the healing period is reduced and the levels of success are much greater.  Whilst no procedure is scar free, the scarring of FUE is limited to small dots which camouflage after a short amount of hair growth. 

Follicular Unit Transplant 

FUT Hair Transplants are often referred to as the ‘strip method’, which involves our expert surgeons using a precise technique to remove an area of skin from the scalp.  This area of skin is typically taken from the healthiest area of growth, known as the donor area, which can be at the back or sides of the scalp.  This strip is then separated into groups of hair follicles to be used in the transplantation procedure.  The hair follicles are then implanted into the new area requiring density.

Stephen Purdon

Actor Stephen Purdon came to Merchant City Medical Group for his 2nd hair transplant surgery. Like Wayne Rooney, Stephen, 37, of Glasgow needed further work to stem his hair loss and we were delighted to have Scotland’s soap king pick out our Glasgow clinic for his surgery. The Scot, who plays original cast member Shellsuit Bob, is the longest serving character in the BBC Scotland series, River City and will celebrate 20 years on the show, in 2022. For people in the public eye, their image can affect their career and a simple procedure such as a Hair Transplant can make an enormous difference to any person, male or female suffering hair loss.
