Maximise the results we're able to achieve with our market-leading FUE / FUT combination treatment
A clinic only doing FUE is probably doing that because the doctor cannot do a FUT procedure. It is very clear from research papers that the gold standard for transplantation is FUT, and a surgeon should be able to do both. Whichever clinic you choose, always check whether your surgeon is able to do both procedures - FUE and FUT.
At Hillside Hair Clinic, we offer a unique combination surgery that brings together the best of both FUT and FUE. It enables us to provide the patient with a greater number of grafts without compromising the donor site and causing the kind of horrific problems seen from over-harvesting grafts in clinics overseas, including Turkey.

Our market-leading Maxi Combo procedure is a combination of FUT and FUE, and is available for patients who meet certain criteria. This technique means the maximum number of grafts can be harvested without compromising the scalp blood supply.
The surgical procedure takes longer overall, however, for those individuals not wanting a second procedure to cover an extensive area of their scalp, it also means the whole transplant can be completed in one session.
In patients with Norwood 5,6 and 7, we can achieve up to 4000 grafts with our combined FUE and FUT procedure. From £1600 or £9/week on finance.

What our patients have to say about us...
I had a very open consultation with Dr Ali about my hair loss options; he asked me what I wanted to achieve, and he gave me a realistic expectation of results. I found his honesty very refreshing, he did not pressure me into having treatments which would not benefit me.
I am so happy with my results. Hillside clinic really took care with easing my concerns and explained my FUE procedure in a simple manner. I was debating whether to go abroad due to pricing but I got a great deal and the peace of mind knowing that they are based in the UK.
Consultations are NOT from salespeople, rather it’s from Doctors who advise on what is right, give you facts and look for the best interest of the client. My only regret I didn’t visit them any earlier. Highly recommend anyone looking for real, professional advice by REAL DOCTORS and not sales consultants.
I highly recommend this clinic for anyone seriously considering a hair transplant. Having travelled to Turkey and several other clinics in the UK, I found the expertise of the team and quality of this clinic by far the best. From day one I was well informed of my options, success rate and clear costings.
I am truly amazed by the level of care and quality of treatment and I would highly recommend this hair clinic to anyone. All the team at the clinic are brilliant & caring, they provide all the information you need & the level of after care is far better than any other clinic.
Very happy with my experience. Did a combined FUT and FUE transplant. Both the doctor and the technicians were fantastic from start to finish. Would recommend to anybody planning to do the same thing.
I was initially very nervous about getting the procedure but on the day I was made the feel at ease and more relaxed about the whole thing, mainly due to the professionalism of everyone involved and how welcoming and nice they were. I am only on 4 months post op but I am already seeing…
