FUT Hair Transplant

FUT Hair Transplant London

The FUT hair transplant is a one-day outpatient procedure, performed under local anaesthetic at our Harley Street clinic in London. 

Genetically strong hairs, immune to male pattern baldness, are relocated from the back of the head to your new recipient area, where they will continually grow.

FUT stands for Follicular Unit Transplant, where a thin strip of tissue containing the follicles is excised from your safe zone donor region. Unlike the FUE extraction technique, this surgical method uses an advanced suturing technique called the Trichophytic closure, which allows hairs to grow directly through the incision line once healed.  

Once the strip tissue is excised, the surgical team carefully dissect and prepare the grafts under high magnification, before individually implanting them into your recipient area one by one.

We are able to leave your hair longer at the back for the strip excision process, and simply comb the hair over the incision line once sutured for discreeter healing.

At our Harley Street clinic in London we can perform the FUT technique more than once for candidates with suitable scalp laxity, as we excise and refashion the previous linear scar.

You can expect your hair transplant result to be seen between 6-12 months after your surgery, with continued maturation of the hair quality up to 18 months until the final result.  

The FUT procedure can be a highly effective solution for individuals with significant hair loss, as it allows for the transplantation of a large number of hair follicles in a single session. 

Overall, the FUT hair transplant can be a good option for individuals with significant hair loss who are looking for a more extensive solution. However, it’s important to choose a skilled and experienced surgeon who can perform the procedure safely and effectively.


  • Able to yield large amount of transplantable hair in one session
  • Enables you to keep your donor hair length without shaving
  • Can be combined with FUE to maximise donor hair yield 
  • Best suited for long hair, women, and curly hair cases
  • Simple aftercare and minimal downtime recovery

Recently had a smp procedure at WMG In Harley street. I must say I am absolutely delighted with the results it looks so natural and real and has blended in with my natural hair perfectly, the technician Marzena was very polite and professional and from the very first visit she explained the procedure and put my mind at rest, I was very happy with the way she worked, and would certainly return if I ever needed a top up

Excellent five star service. I'd researched several clinics before finding Westminster Medical Group. They were by far the best from day 1. Professional service, caring and efficient. The communication from the initial contact and booking the consultation has been excellent. I'd highly recommend them.

Getting a hair transplant is a big thing so I wanted to take the time and make sure I’m choosing the right place and surgeon for the job. Like most people I did contemplate Turkey etc but having looked more into it the top clinics are often conveyor belt systems processing thousands of patients, where the actual surgeon only sees you at consultation or you may be lucky to get a pencil line drawn on ur head on the day. London has many choices to filter through as well. Initially what sold Westminster Medical Group to me were the quality of the before and after pictures, and the first class reviews. Then looking into the surgeon's past works I liked the sound of Dr Ted Miln’s approach, awards, and knowledge. It was clear he not only had extensive knowledge of the science behind it all but the way in which he acknowledged part of this as an art form. Reframing the face with new hairs needs that certain touch. Then after a consultation with him i was so impressed with his ethics, like for him he's really interested in the patients psychology and reasoning behind them wishing for a procedure. Leading up to the surgery the communication with Barbara and Theresa was faultless. They made me feel fully aware of what shall happen and were always quick to respond to queries. After the surgery too, they are just as helpful and kind. They told me it would be like a spa day and it pretty much was, I was made to feel totally relaxed on the day, the receptionist was lovely. I had 3000 grafts and all though it took the whole day it flew by so fast. I was so relaxed at one point I fell asleep for some time. Dr Ted was involved throughout the procedure. The other nurses and staff were very professional and also good humoured and made me feel relaxed. So far its 6 days after and everything is healing nicely, the new hairline looks fantastic. Cant wait for month 3 and 6 etc when I’ll get to see how it really looks. This is definitely money well spent and I'm very happy I did it and got it done by a world class team. **Picture - 1 day post surgery.

I’ve had two hair transplants with WMC, the first being an FUT procedures in March 2022 and the second being and FUE procedure in October 2023. I was told in 2022 that I would most likely need a second procedure because of the amount of my recession, so my expectations were managed. During the most recent procedure in October 2023, I was so very happy that I received the same high quality of service from the day I booked my initial consultation to the day of the actual procedure. I decided to opt for FUE simply for the recovery time being shorter. However, having an FUE means the procedure is a little longer. Needless to say, this didn’t negatively impact the care and professionalism I received on the day whatsoever. On the day itself, I met the surgeon again and the team that would be supporting him. The surgeon and I had a conversation about what I wanted to achieve in terms of appearance, how long the procedure was to last, when there would be lunch / comfort breaks and what to expect. The procedure itself went without any problems and I was made to feel so at ease and as comfortable as possible. I was given chocolate throughout the day to keep my sugar levels up and lunch was also provided. The operating room was large and looked so clean and tidy. Given how nervous I felt on the day, seeing the preparedness taken made me feel at ease. When the surgeon had completed the extraction of the hairs to be transplanted, the team supporting him when to work to insert the hairs once these had been assessed. The level of communication and coordination was very impressive and it really made me feel at complete ease. At the end of the procedure, I had a long conversation with the surgeon about how it went and what to expect over the coming days. I was also given a goodie bag of shampoo, conditioner, pain relief tablets, neck supporter and a hat to take home. During the days and weeks that have followed, WMG have kept in regular contact with me and always been on hand, happy to respond to an email of telephone call, which has been so very reassuring. The surgeons will always be honest and realistic with what they can extract and what can be achieved. There is no hard sale whatsoever and you are given the time to think and make an informed decision. You will receive a follow-up email to confirm what was discussed and the costs involved, which is helpful because it’s easy to forget. For me personally, I felt assured in the fact that the procedure was done in London, which is a more easier commute then going abroad, and also having the team easily available to contact if I needed them. For anyone that is considering a hair transplant I say do it, life is too short to look at reflection in the mirror you don’t like, and to avoid photographs with friends and family being you don’t like what you see.
