was really nervous and scared because it was the first cosmetic surgery in my mid-40s but it turned out it was the best decision I've made ever! Let's start with the location and the place itself. Its location is very easy to access both by BTS skytrain ( It's directly connected with Ekkamai station) and by car. As I drove there, I found that the car park was so convenient and rather private ( which I liked best, I would't suppose to see lots of people after the surgery, would I ^_^). I could easily find the parking space and go directly to the elevator which took me to the clinic in a few steps. The clinic was nice and clean as I expected and most importantly very private. I was the only customer that day and that made me feel more comfortable. There were a restroom and a private rest area for me including lockers, delicious meals and even drinks! I quite liked the meal they served (chicken fried rice). For staff, as I said that I was scared at first because I had''t got any cosmetic surgeries done before and I hadn't even met the doctor yet. I had just texted her and talked to her on the phone once. Even though Dr. Patty had given me enough information to help me make decision to put deposit on the surgery but I was not so sure until I met her in person on the operation day. She was totally different from the surgeon in my imagination. She was more like a pediatrician who was so good at explaining and calming the patients down. She explained everything that I concerned all over again and told me exactly what's gonna happen next step by step and how long it would take. That really calmed me down and I was so confident with my decision. Dr. Patty was not only good at explaining but she was also an experienced artist. She drew my new hairline and adjusted it until it looked nice on me and I was satisfied. Dr. Patty and her OR team were also professional and quick. They really knew what needed to be done and they did it so neatly. Even after long-opertion hours, they were very friendly and considerate to me till the end. The other staff members in the front office were also very helplful. They even booked a nearby hotel for me because they were worried that it might not be safe if I drove back home by myself. I am so thankful and really appriciate their hospitality. For the results : It's been about 4 months so far and as you guys can see in the pictures that some of the transplant hair has grown quite well. Infact, it is much more than I expected. I expected about 10-15% of transplant hair to grow at this period but it seems to grow much more than that ^_^. I am so happy with the results right now and many of my friends and relatives start to admire my now appearance. I can't wait to see the final result after a year and I promise to myself not to forget to take finasteride and minoxidil regularly. For the price: Great value and quite affordable! I highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for hair transplant surgery.

Made an appointment by email for MRCP. It was very easy & efficient. OUM rang me to confirm everything. When we arrived at the X-ray department, OUM greeted us & we found that there was a slight problem but she rectified it immediately. Had the tests & results were back after 1.5 hours. We were very happy with everything. Very professional staff & hospital overall. I would definitely go back. Thank you OUM for your outstanding service & efficiency.

I've been coming here for treatment for some time now and at first, I wasn't sure but as time passed I realized the staff was very in tune with the patients and very friendly. I have a fear of needles, but they are brilliant. Hardly feel anything. They offer various treatments so you'd have to check what suits your needs but I can recommend it and will continue here for the foreseeable future

hours researching FUE transplant doctors and clinics all over the world and we landed on Bangkok as the best place for the procedure. After contacting dozens of clinics and corresponding over many emails it was clear that Hairsmith clinic was the way to go. We made this decision based on the excellent communication from the front office team, competitive pricing and before and after photos. From the very beginning the office staff was so friendly, responsive, professional and thoughtful with our needs. It was a bit daunting for my partner to travel by himself to Bangkok for the procedure but he was well taken care of by the Hairsmith clinic team. The service provided before, during, and after was outstanding and I would definitely recommend Dr. Prima to anyone looking to get this procedure done. It’s been 12 months now since the procedure and his hair is much fuller around the front, top and sides. Thanks, Wanwisa, Utoo and Dr. Prima!

What you need to know about Hair Transplant in Thailand

Hair Transplant Procedure to cover bald patches

Also known as Hair Restoration or Hair Transplantation - the surgical process of moving hair follicles from one part of the body, rich in hair (known as a donor site) and embedding them at the recipient site (the bald area).

It is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under local anesthetic and is most commonly used to treat male baldness, but the technique can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair and to fill in scars. The procedure usually lasts between 4 to 8 hours, depending on the number of grafts.

While there are many causes of hair loss, the most common reason, especially for men, is genetics. Hereditary hair loss as men age is the number one leading factor of baldness.

MyMediTravel currently lists 10 facilities in Thailand offering Hair Transplant procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Hair Transplant can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

What Does The Procedure Involve?

We lose an average of 100 hairs a day, however, these hairs are immediately replaced by new hairs growing at the same time. Hair loss can occur suddenly or gradually and it may affect your scalp or your entire body, depending on what’s causing it. Other causes of hair loss may include:

  • Stress - a lot of people may experience hair thinning for several months due to a physical or emotional shock. However, this type of hair loss is only temporary.
  • Certain Hairstyles and treatments - hairstyles that pull your hair like tight pigtails, ponytails or braids can actually cause traction alopecia. Permanent hair treatments and hot oil treatment may also lead to hair loss; these hair treatments cause inflammation to the hair follicles. If there is scarring, hair loss may be permanent.
  • Radiation Therapy - for example, during cancer treatment.
  • Certain medical conditions and hormonal changes - in women, hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth menopause or thyroid problems may cause temporary or permanent hair loss. As for medical conditions, hair loss may be due to alopecia, scalp infections like ringworm or a hair-pulling disorder known as trichotillomania.

Sudden hair loss may also be a sign of a specific medical condition that will require treatment. You will need to consult your doctor if you experience more than your usual hair loss whenever you are combing or washing your hair and also if you encounter a sudden patchy loss of hair.

A hair transplant is a common treatment performed on people who are experiencing baldness due to aging and heredity factors. However, if you are completely bald with absolutely no hair left, then this type of treatment may not be applicable for you, as you won't have sufficient donor hair to supply.

The hair transplant procedure involves taking hair from your Donor Site and transferring it to the area(s) lacking in hair, the Recipient Site, and a local anesthetic will be applied before the procedure begins to limit any discomfort.

There are two main methods used in a hair transplant procedure:

  1. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) - strips of tissue will be removed from your donor area, these strips will be cut into individual follicular units. Small cuts will be made on your scalp where the follicular unit grafts will be placed. This method is becoming less popular.
  2. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) - individual hair follicles will be directly extracted from your donor area and moved to your recipient site using a specialist microsurgical needle. FUE is now the preferred technique for hair transplants as it will not leave a linear scar at the back of the head.

Procedures are undertaken by a fully qualified technician and usually involve the extraction of around 3,000 grafts, going up to 4,000. Any more, and it will likely require two separate sittings to complete.

How Long Should I Stay in Thailand?

Both methods used for Hair Transplant treatments usually take 4-8 hours to complete and you will be able to go back to your hotel immediately after. With FUE technique, there are no stitches or staples to be removed, so you won't need to stay in Thailand for long after the procedure, just allow a day or two to be sure before traveling home. You should expect to pay the clinic another visit the day after the treatment so the doctor can remove the bandage, examine the areas of intake and transplantation of follicles, before washing your hair using a special technique that you will learn to perform by yourself. Finally, the doctor will provide you with a special shampoo that will help to restore the skin.

What's the Recovery Time?

Your scalp will continue to be sensitive to pain for a few days, during which time you should continue to take the medications provided by the doctor. On top of the pain killers and anti-inflammatory meds, you may also be given antibiotics to lessen the risk of infection, as uncommon as this may be.

You should expect to return to work and your daily routine, including exercise, after 5 days. However, the signs of a hair transplant will remain for at least another 2-3 weeks, at which point the newly transplanted hairs will start to fall out - but don't be alarmed! This is to be expected as you've just had a follicle extraction, so dead hair will simply make way for new hair over the coming weeks and months.

If the average person's hair only grows at a centimeter per month, then it will take some time before you can wear your hair long again. You could expect to display short and consistent hair just 4-6 weeks after the treatment.

What About Aftercare?

After the procedure is complete, anti-swelling medication and painkillers will be available and you'll be provided with various essentials to see you through the days immediately following. Post-op items may include; specialist shampoo, lotion, multivitamins, a special hat, a headband, neck pillow, and wound dressing.

Having already been provided with your post-op aftercare products, you may also be offered Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy to help stimulate the hair follicles and encourage hair growth. This is where a small amount of blood is taken, rich in plasma, which is then injected into the Recipient Site.

What's the Success Rate Like?

The success rate for hair transplants is one of the highest, at 98% and is considered the only truly effective remedy for hair loss. Scarring is the most common side effect but is only applicable to FUT. Other potential risks and side effects could include infections, temporary loss of sensation around the surgical sites, inflammation of hair follicles (folliculitis), temporary scalp pain, itching, and swelling.

Are there Alternatives to a Hair Transplant?

Laser therapy is one alternative to a hair transplant - a low-level laser device will be used as a treatment for a hair loss specifically caused by genetics. This low-level laser with a wavelength of 650 nanometres can actually stimulate your hair growth. However, long term effects for this type of alternative still remains uncertain.

PRP Therapy is another alternative to Hair Transplant. This type of treatment will make use of your own blood to promote hair growth. Your blood will be spun in a centrifuge to separate your blood’s plasma component from your red and white blood cells. Plasma contains many growth factors that promote hair growth when injected into the scalp.

Other non-surgical alternatives could include simply shaving all your hair off, trying other hairstyles or using a wig or hairpiece.

How do FUT and FUE Compare?

The two most common techniques used are the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):

1. FUT, also referred to as FUSS (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery), involves the removal of a strip of skin from the back of the head containing lots of hair follicles, which is stitched up and hidden by the surrounding hair. Then the strip of follicles is divided into 500-2,000 tiny grafts containing just a few hairs. These are then embedded across the bald area of the head.

2. FUE does not require a strip of skin to be removed, instead, the hair follicles are individually removed from the donor site and positioned across the bald area in tiny slits created by a scalpel or needle.
