Shane Smeltz - Actual Patient
Our world renowned surgeon hand transplants each hair for thick, permanent hairlines, using the FUE method.
FUE is the careful craft of first extracting hair, one by one, and transplanting them to the sites where hair is needed. We take the time, and leaves no large scars or intrusions, plus a natural looking result.
We offer free consultations if you'd like to know more.
Dr Alam himself will make sure that he understands your expectations in hairline or crown design by meticulously checking aesthetic measurements over & over again. Before taking you in to theatre, Dr Alam will make sure you are completely satisfied with the design he created with you.
Our surgeon extracts hair follicles from where the hair on the head is the thickest and permanent (known as the donor zone), taking out individual hair grafts one by one. To extract one hair graft, our surgeon will make a miniscule ‘punch’, leaving tiny pinholes in the donor area. These tiny marks are barely visible. Quick healing which means less downtime for you is just one of the benefits of HTA’s transplant system. Additionally and only if required, the FUE method can be used to harvest hair follicles (grafts) from other parts of the body such as the chest or legs.
During this phase, your surgeon creates tiny holes (or sites), in the area where hair is needed. After creating sites, the surgery team carefully place your follicles into these sites taking care to implant them at a natural-looking angle. Hair Transplant Australia is highly skilled and specialise in performing implantations of hair follicles without damaging them.
On the day of surgery your hair is shaved short and thoroughly disinfected. There may be many other clinics that do not shave your head as they know it may be a deal breaker for you to book with them. However, here at HTA we do not compromise on infection control.
For us the safety of your investment is our highest priority. Many people are afraid of shaving their hair for surgery, but there is a number of reasons why we ask you to:
You can clearly see in this picture that by day 14 Shane Smeltz's hair has started to grow back.
He is publicly presentable and able to return to work with no swelling or scabs.
You will have our patient care coordinator's direct mobile number to contact after hours, who has also had a hair transplant to walk you through the entire process.
Your transplanted hair follicles develop a blood supply within a few days. Your newly transplanted hair will remain in what is called the ‘telogen phase’, a resting period for your hair, after a hair transplant. After three to six months, you will notice hair starting to grow from the transplanted area. The hair will grow around half an inch a month; you will have an adequate length within 12-18 months to style your hair as you please. HTA’s qualified hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Alam has been performing FUE hair transplants in Dubai and Australia for many years. Dr Alam has successfully treated many people of different nationalities and from all walks of life.
