What to expect

From the moment you make your first consultation till your last follow up 12 months after your hair transplant, Dr Nestor and the team will be with you every step of the way.

Here is what to expect:

Initial detailed consultation with Dr Nestor to discuss your hair loss concerns, medical history and expectation. Tour of the clinic’s operating theatre and facilities. You are then given written information to take away with you and consider all that has been discussed.

Once you decide to proceed, a date suitable for you is chosen for your surgery. Pre- and post-treatment aftercare advice is given and e-mailed to you. A non-refundable deposit is taken to secure your appointment. 1 month before procedure 50% of balance is paid. 1 week before the procedure, your remaining balance is paid.

On the day:

  • Arrive at 8.30am
  • Welcome and introductions to Dr Nestor’s team
  • Consent forms completed
  • Recap of procedure and expectations
  • Operation starts approx. 9am
  • This is a full day procedure and finishes around 5pm (plenty of breaks throughout the day for tea/coffee and lunch)
  • Aftercare instructions reiterated before leaving to go home

Your aftercare:
Dr Nestor will personally call you every evening for the first three days following your surgery to ensure you are following your post treatment instructions and answer any questions you may have.

Dr Nestor will see you 8-10 days after your surgery to remove any sutures (if FUT case). He will then see you again at 3-4 weeks after your procedure. At this stage your follow up will be every 3 months until the anniversary of your surgery.

At any time the whole team at the Edinburgh Hair Clinic is there to answer any questions. We are always only a phone call away!
