Hair Transplantation


is a unique centre in Belgium that provides highly professional advice and treatment at affordable prices

The centre only employs doctors who have been trained by leading foreign experts in this specialism.

During an initial free consultation the doctor looks for the causes of the hair loss and reviews the possible treatments dialogue with the patient. The patient’s own family doctor and/or a skin specialist are consulted if necessary. If a hair transplant is considered appropriate, the centre can offer the patient the virtually pain-free and highly advanced FUE technique that produces an excellent aesthetic outcome. This technique involves transplanting individual hair follicles into the bald areas of the scalp. With the FUE technique, patients rarely if ever report problems with pain, infection or major scarring following the procedure. Depending on the degree of baldness and its causes, 1 to 3 days of treatment are sufficient in most cases. For instance, a scar left by a previous operation or a burn can be corrected in half a day of treatment.  The entire procedure, including the initial consultation, the operation and the follow-up checks, is performed exclusively by doctors. The centre offers patients flexibility when planning operations, and can arrange for surgery to be performed on weekends and public holidays at no additional charge.<

Quality guarantees

The doctors

  • the centre’s chief physician has been trained by eminent experts from abroad 
    (Dr R. Jones from Canada and Dr D. Ilter from Sweden)
  • transplant hair follicles are exclusively based on the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method, 
    so the doctors are in total mastery of the technique
  • are recognised by the Belgian Council of Physicians
  • attend scientific congresses and scrupulously follow the specialist literature on 
    hair transplantation 
  • perform the entire procedure themselves (patient registration, surgery, follow-up)
  • contribute to scientific research
  • keep a full medical file on each patient
  • maintain open communication with the patient’s consulting physicians 
    (family doctor, dermatologist)

Surgical procedures

Pre-operative phase

  • The  doctor decides whether hair transplantation is appropriate, following dermatological advice if appropriate. The patient’s family doctor is also consulted if necessary 
  • Each patient automatically receives medical questionnaires as well as clear pre-operative guidelines
  • A laboratory examination is necessary, with tests for antibodies against hepatitis B, C and AIDS (HIV) as a minimum requirement
  • Densitometry of the donor and recipient areas is carried out with a microscope with x30 magnification
  • The recipient area is defined and aesthetically described in close consultation with the patient
  • The surface of the recipient area is determined as accurately as possible
  • Clear agreements are reached about the proposed density in the recipient area
  • Digital photographs are taken of the patient’s status prior to the procedure
  • An informed consent document is read out and explained to the patient. A careful note is made of any additional requirements expressed by patients 

The actual operation

  • The entire procedure is performed by doctors (including implanting)
  • A specialised microscope is used to split grafts and evaluate the quality of grafts
  • Donor hairs are extracted with punches (precision mini hand drills) with diameters up to 1 mm and different degrees of sharpness depending on the skin type
  • Ultrafine tweezers are used for implanting
  • The equipment we use is sterilised several times a day
  • We use a cold light operating lamp
  • Blade cutters make it possible to create implantation openings (slits) of different diameters
  • Implantation is performed using the lateral slit technique in order to achieve the desired implantation angle
  • Grafts are implanted on the day of extraction
  • The density is analysed during the operation at a magnification factor of 6 

Post-operative phase 

  • Clear post-operative guidelines are provided and discussed in depth with the patient 
  • Digital photography of donor and recipient areas
  • Doctors are available 24 hours a day
  • Antibiotics, painkillers and steroids are prescribed following evidence based guidelines
