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.

Our Hair Transplant Guarantee

In our experience, such replacement has seldom been necessary.

What our patients have to say about us...

Both the doctor and the technicians were fantastic from start to finish

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.

Richard Beaumont

Dr Ismael & his team did a brilliant job!

Not even 5 weeks after the procedure people are already noticing that my hair is looking thicker and fuller than it was before the procedure and the full impact hasn’t even started yet. I can’t wait to see what it looks like in 6 months time.


Everything went smoothly

Very welcoming and peaceful. Didn’t feel stressed about the procedure and the technicians were excellent. Everything went smoothly and there were no issues.
