FUT Hair Transplant in London

Strip / FUT Hair Transplants

FUT hair transplant requires no shaving and is suitable for those patients with little donor hair and FUT hair transplant surgery  is for African heritage curly hair types. This technique means that curly hair is not transacted or damaged during individual extraction. We know that very curly African heritage hair types can have scarring as a result of FUE and therefore this technique is more suitable for them.


We offer FUT by our respected and highly experienced hair transplant surgeon surgeon Dr Mir Malkani.

For many men, there is nothing wrong with being bald, it can be a lifestyle choice, and it is one that some people are very comfortable with. However, for every man happy with his hair loss, there are probably two or three men who hate their thinning and balding head, who resent every glimpse of scalp showing through in the mirror, photos or CCTV, and who would do almost anything to retain and restore hair.

The process of strip hair transplants is a relatively simple one. A narrow strip of skin is surgically removed from an area on the back of the head where hair growth is good, and hair is DHT (male hormone) resistant. The strip of skin is then placed under powerful microscopes, and follicles or grafts are separated from the skin as they naturally occur with great care, precision and skill. These tiny follicles or grafts are then placed, or grafted, into tiny incisions in the recipient area on the scalp.

It is worth noting that FUT will always result into a PERMANENT linear scar at the back of the head, the donor area which most of the times BUT NOT ALWAYS tends to be very narrow and unnoticeable. Patients will have to be prepared to wear hair long enough at the back of the head to conceal scar.

People who are good candidates for this type of procedure are those who cannot or will not want to agree to shave back of the head (which is essential for FUE).

It could be a male or a female or anyone who would not like colleagues and friends or family to notice a sudden change in the hairstyle to “Crew Cut” after two weeks when they usually return to work.

After Strip Surgery expect pain in the donor area which is now stitched. Expect to take a good few days off following the procedure, and you will need good and strong pain relief. Your scalp/donor area will be sore/ painful, possibly swollen and tight until the wound in the donor area healed up.

Patients may experience a degree of numbness above the scar for an unpredictable period due to interruption of skin nerves.

Very rarely, the grafts do not work, or an infection occurs (as in any surgical / Medical procedure, there are no guarantees of the desired outcome but our surgeon Dr Malkani will ensure that you are fully informed of any risk before the operation is scheduled. Do not be alarmed if the transplanted hair falls out, within six weeks of the transplant, new sturdy hair growth should start coming through, and the final results of the transplant can be seen at around 6 to 12 months post-procedure (this is same as in FUE).

The prospect of being able to grow hair again (by FUE or FUT technique) can be tremendously liberating, boosting confidence and self- esteem – if you don’t like your hair loss or have to put up with comments by others about your hair loss or however your hair loss bothers you why not, contact us today, have a free frank and honest consultation with our Surgeon and see what your options are. We are here to help and do not, entice, incentivise or pressurise patients into treatments.

Aftercare Plan

You will be provided with an aftercare plan post hair transplant surgery, which explains how to best look after your transplanted hair. In addition, we will be with you for up to 12 months post-surgery and throughout your hair growth journey to enhance and promote your recovery and restore your confidence and results.

What Patients Are Saying

11 April 2019

As the partner of a very nervous patient, I want to tell you that if you choose the team you will not be sorry. Shane had wanted this procedure for a while, but was nervous, he hates going to the doctors and even worse hospitals or anything like it.  It took lots of encouragement to get him to take the plunge, I knew 5 years down the line he would regret not having this done. The night before we stayed in London round the corner from Harley street, Shane was really nervous the night before, but as soon as we met they made him feel really relaxed, he answered every question we had, completely honestly and within 5 minutes had earnt both of our respect and trust, something that remained throughout the day. Shane was really looked after, and they made me feel included. While I could not be in the room with Shane for the first part of the procedure, I was kept informed of progress and got to have lunch with him before the second part of the process.

If you are in doubt of to do this, and your doubt is related to the actual procedure, then let me tell you there is nothing at all to worry about with Malkani hair institute.

Going into this procedure I was nervous as you would expect, however after talking to the team for the first 20 minutes and going over the procedure and how it would work, I can honestly say I felt really relaxed and I am not someone who likes to visit any doctor and hospitals fill me with dread. This was a totally different experience, I felt completely comfortable with the surgeon and both the nurses that assisted him with my procedure. They assured me that they would look after me like family, and that ‘today I was their priority’, saying this is easy, but honestly that is how I felt from start to finish. The whole procedure was weirdly one of the most relaxing days I have spent I even fell asleep during the first part of the procedure where hairs are removed from the donor site, the atmosphere is relaxed and the team are amazing at what they do. I can honestly say the only downside to the day was the my partner managed to get a picture of me wearing crocs, something I swore I would never do :).

“The process is like no other and does take some time but I knew that in entering the procedure, the team are really thorough and excellent at what they do reassuring along the way taking his time to get it right. The support he has from his team is first class and the ladies went about the implants really methodically working simultaneously together to place each follicle. So for me because I lived so far away from London I did develop some real soreness around the head and believed I had an infection which is something that can happen, I spoke to the emergency hot line and sent pictures in, to which they that same day prescribed some low level antibiotics, the pharmacist sent them out via a carrier but unfortunately they took three days to get to me despite being urgent, my head was sore and the weekend was coming so I had to source them myself from my own GP surgery. So now its almost five weeks on, things are looking normal, hair has taken, and is starting to look good and I can now see what it will look like longer term. Would I have done this now knowing what was actually involved – yes I would it is really worth it.”

“I had a beard transplant carried out on the 9th October 2018 in London. It was a very long process, which I knew it would! The team were just wonderful!!! They made sure throughout the whole process that I was happy and comfortable, and they worked at my pace not theirs!

I do have to have several local anaesthetic injections in both the scalp (donor site) and the face. I didn’t experience any problem with this, but I do think I have quite a high pain threshold!
It’s now 17 days since the transplant, and I’m perfectly happy with everything! All the scabs and crusting (sorry about this, if you’re a bit squeamish!!) There’s absolutely no pain whatsoever! The hairs are quite noticeable on my chin, under my lower lip, as there wasn’t any hair there at all. And over all the appearance looks pretty good at the moment!

He couldn’t do enough to make me feel relaxed and happy! And he explained everything to before, during and after the procedure. And I would just like to mention his ‘team’, Farzana, Julie, Keira, Anni, and Marcin – what a great bunch of people! They made me hot drinks, supplied me with food, water, tv to watch and music to listen to!! I’m partially sighted, and they really took care of me!
If you are considering a hair transplant, this is the man to use!!!

Thanks so much, each and everyone of you!”

“Superb job! I had my procedure two days ago performed by the team – they were very considerate and professional and I would recommend unreservedly . – fantastic job guys many many thanks !!!!!”

“Had a really positive experience with them from start to finish. Very friendly and informative initial meeting; following a decision to progress I was given an advisor I could call at any time. I was daunted ahead of the procedure , but I shouldn’t have been. Dr M was brilliant, really knowledgable and calm and the day passed very quickly. After care was good, my contact supported me through questions that arrived. 6 months on I’m over the moon.the results are amazing , however after my 6 month review I was told I only had 42% growth (which is normal) so that is just out of this world! I’d be happy if it stopped growing now, but to have the same again to come is life changing. I’d definitely recommend.”

“I am an aesthetician working in Harley Street and know lots of Hair transplant surgeons on Harley Street. I chose them because of recommendations from some of my own patients. I sent my uncle for a consultation. There was no pushy sales technique. He is now booked for September.”

“I saw the team for a consultation a year ago.It felt very different talking to a doctor from a sales person who I had met in other clinics . They were factual, realistic and honest and told me what was possible and not possible in the consultation . I have had a fantastic result nine months later. I am really pleased I went for it. It’s been life changing!”
