When you first contact us, it is likely that you will have a great many questions, concerns and perhaps anxieties about your hair loss and about the potential restoration procedures. The truth is that hair restoration is a journey and getting off to the right start is extremely important. In an initial telephone and then face-to-face meetings at our clinics, our patient advisor and doctor will listen to you and take the time to understand your particular situation and your goals.
Before your treatment, we’ll give you clear guidance on all of the options available to you, the pros and cons of each and the costs involved. We’ll also give you full information about the kind of result you can realistically expect to achieve.
But we will never forget that if you decide to undertake treatment with Assure Clinic, you are a medical patient under the care of our doctor, not merely a paying customer. Before recommending any particular course of treatment, we’ll take into account your age, your medical history and your general health and wellbeing. You can enter our surgery safe in the knowledge that you are receiving not just the best possible hair restoration treatment, but the best possible medical care.
If you are having a hair restoration procedure, your treatment day will take place at our state-of-the-art clinic.
Before surgery you’ll have a meeting with your operating Doctor, who will talk you through the procedure and will assess you to make sure you are in the right condition to receive your procedure.
Although our treatments are medical operations conducted in a theatre, we have made every effort provide an environment that is comfortable and pleasant. All of our procedures are conducted using tablet pain relieve and injections of local anesthetic, which is similar to an injection at the dentist and should be the only discomfort you will feel throughout the process.
You will be awake but relaxed throughout the day, and able to watch movies or use a tablet computer while the procedure is taking place. We have made a treatment at Assure Clinic as much like a spa day as possible – and more than one patient has even said that their day with us was the most enjoyable ‘me time’ they’d had in years! When the procedure is complete, we will again assess you to ensure you are in full health and able to leave the clinic. We’ll provide you with all that you need to take care of your grafts, and full information on how to look after everything in the coming days and weeks.
When you leave The Maitland Clinic after your treatment, we’ll provide you with everything you need to take care of your grafts in the first few weeks, including instructions for washing your hair and any medication required to manage any initial discomfort. But far beyond that, we see our patients as lifelong beneficiaries of our hair care service. You’ll be able to stay in contact with us for ongoing support and help with monitoring your hair growth progress, looking after your scalp, and preventing any potential problems.
We’re always very happy to see our patients again and to hear how you’ve benefited from your procedure. You’ll be able to return to us for check-ups and maintenance procedures, giving you a lifetime of professional hair care. Please note follow up visits will be chargeable with the exceptions of sessions included in the package.
