MHR Clinic specialises in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplants. We guarantee the success of our FUE work, due to the quality and longevity of the results we achieve.

During FUE procedures, follicles on the back or side of the head are transferred to areas suffering hair loss. Our surgeon’s meticulous approach to FUE surgery achieves a flawless distribution of follicles in your recipient area. This ensures you receive the best and most natural hair restoration for your hair type, face shape and age. 


Benefits of a FUE Hair Transplant Procedure

Minimally Invasive

As a FUE Hair Transplant is a relatively small procedure, using local anaesthesia and is completed in one day it is considered to be minimally invasive as patients leave shortly after the procedure has been completed.

Invisible Scars

FUE is performed with a very small and precise scalpel, creating very small incisions to retrieve the follicles from the scalp, meaning minimal scarring that is invisible to the human eye.


Minimal Hair Removal

The procedure uses highly precise and planned removal of hair follicles, MHR professionals will only take out what we need to avoid losing density of the existing hair.

Constant Hair Growth

Following a successful FUE procedure, your hair will not go stagnate, your new hair follicles will grow constantly, giving amazing results for a long period of time.

Simple Post Treatment Care

Post-procedure care for your new hair is fairly simple, we suggest a few days of mild pain killers, avoid harsh scrubbing or rubbing of the scalp and taking care when sleeping as to not irritate the new hair follicles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I eligible for a FUE hair transplant?

The majority of people we see are eligible for a hair transplant, although in some cases we identify other ways to restore their hair. We advise against a hair transplant if we believe you are too young or if your donor area is too sparse. We will not perform FUE surgery on haemophiliacs or those suffering from Alopecia Areata.

What are the risks of a FUE hair transplant?

The only risks associated with FUE procedures are those commonly associated with other types of surgery. Excessive bleeding, nerve damage and infection are all possible as a result of surgery but our surgeon is so well skilled in hair transplantation that these problems are highly unlikely and we have never seen them as a result of her FUE work.

Are there any side effects from a FUE hair transplant?

In rare cases, some existing hair in the recipient area suffers a syndrome known as shock loss. This happens in reaction to follicles being planted in the scalp. We prescribe medicine to stabilise your recipient area and our surgeons use techniques to minimise shock loss. If shock loss occurs these hairs can still return during the regrowth period.

How much does a FUE hair transplant cost?

The price of your FUE procedure will be determined by how many follicles you need to have transplanted. We’ll have a clearer idea of the final fee once we have conducted a thorough examination of your hair. However, through prescribed medication and laser therapy we can reduce the cost of FUE. This means that MHR’s prices begin from as little as £2000.

Will I have any scarring after my FUE?

FUE procedures produce less scarring than other types of hair transplant surgery, such as FUT. FUE hair transplants leave a series of tiny dots that stand up to close scrutiny and are easily disguised by short haircuts, including a no.1 crewcut. MHR also provides excellent advice in how to minimise this minor marking so it becomes undetectable within days.

FUE Hair Transplant Procedure

At MHR Clinic, we consider there to be three key stages to a FUE procedure:

Before Your FUE Hair Procedure

Your need for a FUE procedure and transplant surgery will be identified in a thorough consultation with our experts at MHR Clinic. They will review your physical health and medical history. A hair assessment will estimate the number of grafts required to complete your FUE hair transplant.

You will be advised on the amount of prescription medicines, herbal supplements and low level laser therapy recommended to nourish hair in your donor and recipient areas depending on the severity of the hair transplant surgery you take and require. Your medical programme will be put in place for no less than three months before

MHR Clinic’s surgeon performs your FUE procedure.


This careful approach ensures your hair is at its most healthy for transplantation. It reduces the number of donor follicles needed, by reviving as many dying follicles in your recipient area as possible. It increases follicle survival rate among transplanted hair.

Your medical programme will be halted two weeks before the date of your FUE hair transplant procedure, so your follicles are in an entirely natural state for transplantation.

You will likely be asked to have a closely-cropped haircut shortly before your procedure. Or, if fewer follicles are needed for your hair transplant, your surgeon will perform a line shave (easily disguised by overhanging hair) before your transplant.

Upon arrival for your FUE hair transplant, MHR’s surgeon and technicians will explain the hair transplant procedure and advise you how to increase your comfort during it.


During Your FUE hair transplant Procedure

Your FUE procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and most often within a single day. An anaesthetist administers a mild sedative and a series of local anaesthetics to your donor area. Time is allowed for these treatments to take effect.

The harvesting period takes up to four hours, depending on how many follicles are needed. Each follicle is removed individually while you lie face down. Dr Kunnure uses high magnification and a powered microscopic punch. Your follicles are placed on a nutrient-rich gel in cold medical storage.

Our experienced fue hair transplant technicians identify and separate your donor follicles under a microscope. They place them in groups of follicles that produce one, two, three, four or five hairs. Each follicle is loaded into the cartridge of a micro injector and passed individually to Dr Kunnure.

 The implantation period takes up to four hours, depending the follicles needed and the density of existing hair in your recipient area. Dr Kunnure selects the best position on your head for each follicle. He implants them at the correct depth and angle to match the natural growth and lie of surrounding hair.

 Dr Kunnure skill ensures MHR Clinic provides the industry’s most natural hair transplant results. His skill and dexterity also ensures fast recovery and healing periods, so you can return to normal life within hours of your FUE hair transplant.


After Your FUE Procedure

After your FUE procedure, you will be shown a short presentation video advising you how to care for your transplanted hair. You should not drive home after your procedure. We recommend you are returned home by a friend, taxi or public transport.

We recommend patients with new hairlines sleep in a semi-upright position for one week, to reduce the risk of trauma to implanted follicles. We advise how to shampoo your hair gently and when to begin doing so. Nutrition advice can also be given. 


Swimming, strenuous activity, collision and ball sports must be avoided for two weeks. Light exercise, such as walking, is recommended to maintain adequate blood flow to your scalp.

A minor amount of scarring may occur in your donor and recipient areas. MHR Clinic advises a light saline spray be applied for one week to minimise it. After two weeks, you should recommence your medical programme. Prescription medicines, herbal supplements and low level laser therapy help to stabilise implanted hair.

A dormancy phase, in which transplanted follicles locate their new blood supply, may occur within a month of your procedure. It lasts about five weeks and can result in hair fall which concerns some clients. New hair soon grows.

A significant phase of hair growth occurs between month four and 14 after a FUE procedure. This leads to a dense covering of hair and your final transplant results.




ARTAS® – Robot-Assisted Follicular Unit Extraction

ARTAS FUE offers state-of-the-art robotic hair restoration. The ARTAS machine combines a suite of tools used to identify the best possible selection and distribution of your hair follicles.

It has a faster turnaround time than procedures performed manually and it produces the most consistent results of all follicle transplant procedures. However, due to the more automated approach of ARTAS surgery results may look less natural than procedures completed entirely by human hand.

ARTAS FUE creates customised 3D hair transplant designs for your consideration. It calculates the optimal number of grafts to fulfil each design. It also identifies your most suitable donor follicles according to donor density, the depth of follicles and angle of hair growth. 

The computerised ARTAS system then pinpoints each exact location on your scalp for manual implantation. This helps to achieve the densest possible coverage, while best avoiding damage to existing healthy hair.
