Hair transplants are a surgical procedure that involves relocating follicular units – or strands of hair – from the body to the patient's head. 

This is why we can also refer to hair transplants as follicular unit transplants.

Hair transplants are a very popular option, taken up by many people experiencing hair loss, baldness, or alopecia. Given their benefits, one can quickly understand why.

First, a full head of beautiful, shiny hair is not only a way of looking younger, but it also boosts your self-esteem and confidence. 

At a time when mental health is the order of the day, this is no small matter. Quite the opposite.

At the same time, hair transplants have been offering increasingly natural-looking results due to technological advances in recent years. 

And as if that wasn't enough, there are also the long-lasting results and versatility that hair transplants offer: together with the experts at Master Group, you can create the hair look you've always dreamed of!

For this to happen, it's essential to choose a team of surgeons with an impeccable reputation and an exemplary experience. Exactly what you'll find at Master Group.


How are hair transplants performed?

Before deciding on this procedure, you should know how hair transplants are done. Currently, two types of techniques are used: the FUT technique and the FUE technique.


FUT Hair Transplants

The FUT hair transplant technique, or STRIP technique, was the first technique developed for this type of procedure. For this reason, it is also known as a classic technique for performing hair transplants.

In practice, the FUT technique involves removing a "strip" of about 25 cm from the patient's scalp, which is then transplanted to the place on the head where the hair grows back.

At Master Group, we consider this technique to be quite outdated, with more disadvantages than advantages. 

Among other things, the main disadvantage of the FUT technique is that patients will inevitably have to live with a relatively visible scar where the "strip" is removed – usually at the back of the head.

Although there are always those who argue that this scar can be masked or hidden, the truth is that the FUE technique leaves no scar at all. 

That is why it is the only hair transplant technique used by Master Group.


FUE Hair Transplants

FUE hair transplants are the most advanced technique available for performing a hair transplant.

In practice, instead of a "strip" of scalp removed during a surgical operation, follicular units are extracted one by one from the hair donor area, without the need to remove a strip of skin.

The follicular units, i.e. the hairs, are transplanted one by one to the area of the head where your hair will then grow back. The FUE method leaves only scars that are invisible to the naked eye and does not require any type of sutures.

What's more, the process is painless, as it's done under local anesthesia. 

In fact, you can get on with your life the very next day, albeit with a few precautionary recommendations, such as not being able to handle heavy machinery.

Hair Implants vs. Hair Transplants

Hair Implants vs. Hair Transplants

Although hair implantation isn't exactly a hair transplant technique, as it is a completely different procedure, it is still worth clarifying the matter.

In fact, the terms hair implants and hair transplants are often used as if they were the same procedure. 

Nothing could be further from the truth! So if you're thinking about having an implant or a transplant, here are the differences. 


Frequently Asked Questions about Hair Transplants

Although one of the most frequently asked questions is, in fact, the difference between implants and transplants, there are other very common questions on the subject. For example, where to get a hair transplant?


Where to get a Hair Transplant?

Hair transplantation is a common practice all over the world. One of the most recognized countries for this is Turkey. I'm sure you've heard of this country as an ideal destination for hair transplants. But don't be fooled!

Although Turkey has earned this reputation, the truth is that there are several problems associated with the whole process.

First, most clinics in Turkey don't do hair transplants: they do implants. Implants are a completely different process and the results can be considered completely artificial.

At the same time, even the clinics that do perform transplants do so mostly using the FUT technique, rather than the FUE technique.


The FUT technique is a classic and somewhat outdated technique. On the other hand, the FUE technique is a painless hair transplant technique with no scars and natural results. 


Finally, it's also important to consider the logistical issues associated with a surgery – even if a small one – in a foreign country. 

Even if you consider the more affordable prices of a hair transplant in Turkey, you will inevitably have to add the cost of travel, accommodation, transportation, and insurance in the event of an accident.

So where can you get an effective hair transplant? 

At Master Group, you'll find a hair transplant clinic in Lisbon with an experienced team renowned for its work in the field, and exclusively using the FUE technique.

Simply contact us and book your first assessment appointment.


Is a Hair Transplant permanent?

In most cases, a hair transplant is permanent. However, it will always be necessary to follow the doctor's recommendations, as well as some follow-up appointments over time.


How much does a hair transplant cost?

The price of a hair transplant depends directly on the initial assessment. 

Each case is different and sometimes other types of hair treatments may have more effect.

In a first consultation at Master Group, we give you all the information you need and help you make an informed decision not only about the best method for you but also about your expectations.
