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...
Quite a few people, including my hairdresser, are so impressed with the results on me so early on that they are planning their own procedures with this clinic in the imminent future.

Hillside Hair Clinic Patient
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.
Hillside were perfect start to finish. Unlike others the give honest advice not just what you want to hear! Throughout the day of the procedure they were great and would recommend to anyone!
Thank you Hillside for all that you did for me. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hillside to anyone contemplating a hair transplant as you are sure to receive a full packaged service with results that are second to none.

I can not speak highly enough of the staff at Hillside. Dr Ali was open and honest with me from the start about what was achievable and what to expect. The after care is second to none, there is always someone available on the other end of the phone anytime I need any advice.
Dr Ismael & his team did a brilliant job and 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…

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.
Hillside stood out from the rest no pushy sales pitch, friendly, great advice, and a much needed reality check. The team make you feel like a VIP and want to provide a ‘boutique’ experience. But it’s not just the procedure, its the pre op, the post op care that makes the difference.
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.
