Restore Your Confidence with Our Men's Hair Loss Treatments
Understanding why your hair falls out is essential to finding the best treatment to restore both your hair growth and your self-confidence. Common causes for the loss or thinning of hair in men include androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata, and scarring alopecia. Factors like thyroid issues, scalp infections, and hormonal imbalances can also play a role in male hair loss.
Our patient-centred Glasgow clinic specialises in hair transplants of the highest standard, and Dr Bonaros strives to provide hair restoration procedures that are conducted with honesty and care.
Over and above our sophisticated male FUE hair transplant procedure, we can also advise you about hair loss medications.

FUE Hair Transplant for Men
The FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant surgery is an advanced cosmetic hair transplant procedure that has proven to be a highly effective way of treating thinning hair, male pattern baldness, and hairline issues.
During the FUE hair transplant procedure, hair follicles are discreetly and individually harvested from the back of the head (donor area) under local anaesthetic. The harvested hair follicles are then implanted into balding areas on the crown, mid-scalp, and hairline.
There are several advantages that make FUE hair transplants the favoured method over more traditional hair loss treatments such as FUT hair transplants. These are some of the benefits of the FUE hair transplant surgery:
- A sutureless, more aesthetically pleasing result
- Less discomfort, with a quicker recovery time
- Tiny scars that are virtually undetectable (no linear scarring)
- Minimally invasive surgical procedure
- Ability to have very short hair if desired
Direct Hair Implantation
Direct Hair Implantation is a sharp implantation technique that utilises the latest technology in hair transplantation. Through the use of sharp hair implanter pens rather than regular forceps, this procedure involves the direct implantation of hair follicles into the desired recipient area.
Dr Bonaros is a hair transplant surgeon who is an expert on the FUE hair transplant technique, specialising in the use of sharp hair implanter pens. By using hair transplant pens to perform direct hair transplants for men, we eliminate the need for premade incisions on the scalp. This method also enables Dr Bonaros to have complete control over the angle, depth, direction, and density during the placement of donor hair follicles, delivering exceptionally natural-looking results.
Head Areas for a Men's FUE Transplant
Hair loss can occur on all areas of the scalp for men, from the top of the scalp to the back of the head. Various areas of the head are suitable for a FUE hair transplant, allowing you to restore hair growth where you need it most.
These are the hair transplant options for men that are most commonly performed at our Scotland hair transplant clinic:
The crown or vertex is a complex region found at the highest point of the scalp, situated toward the top of the back of the head. The hair on the crown forms in a circular pattern, known as a hair whorl. This area is commonly affected by male pattern baldness, with hair loss beginning at the centre and progressing outwards.
While the crown or vertex is relatively concealed from view, bald or balding crowns can have a great effect on men’s self-confidence. Dr Bonaros offers crown hair restoration surgery to treat hair thinning and hair loss in this area.
The mid-scalp is found just behind the frontal region, in the middle part of the scalp. Loss of hair tends to occur in this area during the more advanced stages of male pattern baldness.
We can perform the FUE procedure on this area in the middle of the scalp at our hair transplant clinic.
The frontal hairline is arguably the most noticeable features of our hair. Because it frames your face, a loss of hair in this area can be exceedingly visible to you and others. So any changes to this region, whether a different hairstyle or a form of hair loss, can drastically alter your appearance.
Hairline changes caused by hair loss can have a significant impact on the way you live your life, having a negative effect on your self-image and self-esteem. At our hair transplant clinic in Scotland, we carefully design each Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hairline procedure to provide natural-looking results for men of all ages.
Your temples are located on the sides of your head, in the region next to and above your eyes. Hair thinning at the temples is usually a result of a receding hairline that has extended to the sides of the head due to male pattern baldness.
Hair loss at the temples can cause a V-shaped hairline, known as a widow’s peak. As a highly recognised hair transplant surgeon in the UK, Dr Bonaros offers a temple FUE procedure that has proven to be greatly effective in restoring the hair by the temples with natural-looking appearance.

Men's Hair Transplants — FAQs
In the search for ways to recreate a full head of hair, it is easy to get lost trying to keep track of an overload of daunting details. To provide you with as much relevant information as possible on our men’s hair transplants, we’ve compiled a list of answers to questions our patients commonly ask.
From recovery and hair growth to how much a men’s hair transplant can cost, we’ve answered your questions below.
What can commonly cause men to lose hair?
While there are many conditions that could contribute to men’s hair loss, these are a few of the most common causes:
- Androgenetic alopecia: Otherwise known as male pattern baldness, this is the most common cause of hair loss in men, often beginning with a receding hairline or balding on the top of the head.
- Alopecia areata: This is an autoimmune disorder that causes patchy loss of hair, from thinning hair to extensive bald areas.
- Scarring alopecia: This happens as a result of damage to the hair follicles and scarring on the scalp, often caused by inflammatory conditions or persistent tight braiding of the scalp hair. Patients suffering from alopecia areata or scarring alopecia are generally not suitable candidates for hair transplant procedures.
Book a consultation with Dr Bonaros for a diagnosis and tailored treatment plan.
What is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)?
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), otherwise known as the ‘strip method’, was the traditional method used for men’s hair transplants before the FUE method.
During a FUT hair transplant, the hair transplant surgeon cuts a thin strip of skin from the side or back of the head (donor area) and then extracts the individual hairs. The hair follicles are then inserted into the balding areas of the scalp.
While FUT is effective, FUE hair transplant procedures are favoured, as it causes significantly less scarring and pain, and involves a shorter, easier recovery period. The linear scarring involved with a FUT procedure also limits the type of hairstyles that men can wear without the scars showing.
Am I a suitable candidate for a FUE male hair transplant?
Dr Bonaros is dedicated to honesty and transparency in helping you treat your hair loss. A FUE hair transplant procedure is not a suitable option for everyone. Various factors can influence whether or not you will receive the desired results from Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Some factors include:
- Hair loss diagnosis
- General health
- Hair loss stability
- Donor hair density
During your initial consultation, Dr Bonaros will consider all of these factors when determining if you are a good candidate for FUE hair restoration surgery. There are also medication alternatives available for men who cannot have the FUE procedure.
How long is the healing process for a FUE hair transplant?
During your FUE hair transplant, the donor area at the back of your head is numbed with local anaesthetic that typically wears off after 4-6 hours of being administered. You may experience the sensation of a swollen scalp, tingling, or burning while the anaesthetic is wearing off.
During the first couple of weeks following your men’s hair transplant at our UK clinic, there can be temporary scabbing, redness, itching, or discomfort. As this type of hair transplant is minimally invasive, you will be able to return to work the following day if you wish. However, most people tend to take 2-3 days off before resuming normal activities.
When will I start seeing my FUE hair transplant results?
Following your FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) procedure, it usually takes around three months for you to start seeing new hair growth. Throughout the next few months, your newly transplanted hair will continue to grow, however, it will still be relatively thin.
Around six months after your hair transplant procedure, your new hair will have blended in seamlessly with your original hair and you’ll be able to style and cut it with ease. Your new hair will have fully matured and grown one year after your procedure.

Who will perform the hair transplant surgery?
All FUE hair transplant procedures require high levels of skill and precision and should be carried out by an experienced surgeon at a registered clinic. At our Glasgow clinic, Dr Bonaros personally performs every step, with him and his team explaining the whole FUE hair transplant procedure process as it happens.
How much does a men's hair transplant cost?
FUE hair transplant procedures do not have a set cost as each case is unique. Some of the main determining factors of hair transplant costs include:
- Which clinic you go to
- The type of hair transplant procedure you need
- The complexity of your hair loss
- How many hair grafts you need
The cost of a FUE hair transplant in Scotland will vary depending on your chosen hair transplant surgeon’s ability and the philosophy of the clinic.
Is hair transplant surgery permanent?
Generally with men’s hair implants in the UK, the treated bald and thinning areas will be restored. However, the procedure will not stop future hair loss of pre-existing hair in other areas. The transplanted hair will grow continuously and consistently, but there is always the chance that you will continue to lose your non-transplanted hair in untreated areas.
Will my hair transplant be noticeable?
Our FUE hair transplant for male pattern baldness is a minimally invasive, safe procedure with a short recovery time. The hair transplant is hardly noticeable within the first 7-10 days and virtually undetectable within 4-6 weeks.
