Hair transplant advice - UK

Hello,

Starting to look into getting a hair transplant, I posted here some years back, but starting to look into this again.
I did arrange a consultation last time around, however after some life events I had to cancel, but i've decided to look into this again.

Since last time not much has changed, maybe some more thinning at the back but no change to the temples.

So i'm looking for a UK clinic, as my family would be happier for me staying in the UK, also travel, advice, after care would be better.

Here are some pics, its longer than normal as we cant go anywhere for a haircut at the moment.
But pic 1 is just normal hair, not syled, just mess hair.
Pic 2 is top if my head.
Pic 3 is wet hair brushed back.
Then pic 4 is hair dried after and forward.

My main aim is to fill the temples and have a straighter hairline, this alone would give my confidence back.
Secondly a slightly lower hairline.
Thirdly fill the top a little.

How many grafts do you think?
FUT or FUE?
Does my head need to be shaved?
Rough costs?

I do plan and going for a consultation, but if i'm looking 15/20/30k then its game over.

Welcome back Emvee. I looked at your older posts, back in 2017 you had concerns as another site was saying all UK clinics are bad. This was rubbish then and is rubbish now. There are many good clinics in the UK. The people saying this can`t possibly know every clinic, they just get fooled by hand fed stuff and get swayed. I think all the clinics that post on hle do good work overall. You need to select ones you like the look of. I`ve had FUT repair work, very happy with it but you need to decide if you want FUT or FUE.
Looking at your pictures I`d estimate a minimum 2000 grafts that would create a good hair line and density. You might need more if you want to sort your crown. Finasteride, Minoxidil or PRP might sort your crown out.

Thanks for replying, I would be happy to just sort temples out. Although the crown is thinning, i agree i can prob use something to help that.
I was thinking 2000 ish grafts, as I was looking at other posts with temples receding further than my own, and they were getting 2000-2500 grafts.
Im thinking this is about 7k in cost?
If it is about that then I need to start looking at going for consultations.

Im also in a job that is customer face to face, although im a manager so in my own office, the thought of dealing with customers especially worries me when it comes to having my head shaved.

You could have your hair trimmed down on the front or possibly left as is with grafts placed in the temples and your frontal forelock. If you get FUT you can keep your donor area hair at a length that will conceal the strip closure. If you go for FUE your donor area heals quite quickly. You could shave your sides and back down prior to surgery so people get used to it and won`t give it a second look when you`ve had surgery.

Hi Emvee, would be good to know age also and some clear photos of complete side and top and rear profiles to see the complete donor area and also the loss from a bird's eye view.

Have some in person consultations with competent doctors who can measure your donor to give accurate empirical data and then see from there what the best approach is for you and as said by bullinut you may need to consider medication in synergy with surgery.
