Female, late 20s, hair loss due to alopecia.
Hair loss is something which I had read about in magazines and had been warned about whenever my Mum saw me pulling my hair too hard. But I never thought it would happen to me until I reached my late teens. At first it seemed like my hair loss was normal – like so many of the girls I knew at university, my shower was constantly clogged with hair, but I didn’t think anything of it. Then I noticed that the hair around the sides of my head was starting to look much thinner and that areas of my scalp were showing through my hair, and so I would change my hairstyles to cover what were fast becoming bald patches across my scalp. It didn’t take long for the hair loss to start impacting my confidence.
I think in total, I missed out on a full year of university experiences, just because I was lacking in confidence and didn’t want people to see my hair. I wore hats all the time, but it wasn’t until my eyebrow hair started to fall out that I decided to find out what was happening to me.
At first, I saw a doctor. I thought I must be really ill, but they did some tests and told me that I was suffering from alopecia.
Skinoza Clinic explains
Alopecia is a condition which affects the auto-immune system.
The immune system starts to attack the hair follicles and produces antibodies which work against your own natural hair growth. This will most often see those living with the conditions finding bald patches (alopecia areata), though in the most severe cases it can lead to full hair loss both on the head and other areas of the body (also known as alopecia universalis).
There are seven types of alopecia in total: Alopecia Totalis, Alopecia Universalis, Androgenetic Alopecia, Alopecia Areata, Diffuse Alopecia, Postpartum Alopecia, Traction Alopecia. Alopecia areata is one of the most common types of alopecia and can affect both men and women of all ages and lifestyles.
Once I had been diagnosed with alopecia, I was told to visit a hair loss and hair transplant specialist, and that’s when I found the Skinoza Clinic. Not only did the clinic allow me to discuss my concerns and anxieties, but they let me know that my case was not as rare as I might think and that millions of women around the world were living with the same conditions as I was. Most importantly, they showed me pictures of other women who had the same condition as me and they all looked fabulous – I knew I had come to the right place.
From there, the clinician talked me through the various options I had – I could get a wig, I could get my eyebrows tattooed onto my face, or I could opt for an FUT transplant to combat the bald patches which had appeared on my head and to help replace my thinning eyebrows.
Skinoza Clinic explains
FUT stands for Follicular Unit Transplant.
It is also known in some places as FUSS, which stands for Follicular Unit Strip Surgery. The FUT hair transplant procedure removes a strip of the scalp and its hairs, before processing it into small pieces by separating the hair follicles, and then transplanting those hair follicles to the areas where your hair is thinning or where hair loss has already set in.
Prior to commencement of your treatment package, your clinician will discuss your ideal hairline with you, and will make you aware of what the procedure involves from start to finish. Our team are trained in undertaking and performing FUT hair transplant surgery across both small transplant sites and larger sites. Able to create and implant grafts from 500 to 4,500 hair follicles in a single day, we will work with you to determine the best coverage and to ensure that we can extract the hair follicles required for the graft without impacting the aesthetic of your donor area.
The procedure took a few hours to cover my whole head, and then the clinician made an appointment for me to return and have an eyebrow FUT transplant as well. They told me that the eyebrow transplant was more complex and intricate and would be best done on a different day, but that aside from a little soreness I could go about my normal daily activities.
It took a while for the hair to start growing but as soon as it did, I noticed it was much thicker and more consistent. I continued wearing a wig while my hair grew, and then had it cut into a short pixie cut to help style out the newly growing hair with my existing hair. The clinician also talked me through the aftercare process and how to manage my new hair growth and the growth of my eyebrows following the FUT eyebrow transplant.
Two years on, I couldn’t be happier with the results. I have never felt so confident in my appearance, and I have the team at Skinoza to thank for my newfound confidence.
I am now in my late 20’s and work in London, and I can confirm to anyone considering FUT hair transplant treatment that the results are 100% permanent and long term. When I first started researching alopecia and the treatments available to me, I believed that I would have to wear a wig for the rest of my life – but Skinoza showed me that I had options and that they could support me in finding the best decision according to my ideal results and my budget.
