Initial consultation

If you are interested in undergoing hair loss treatment at The Maitland Clinic, please complete our online consultation form.

If Dr Ball feels that surgery might be an option for you, you can expect to receive an email inviting you for an initial video or telephone consultation with David Anderson, senior patient advisor. If Dr Ball feels that non-surgical treatments may be more appropriate for you at this stage, we will explain the options and rationale behind them. Please note that it may take up to 5 working days for us to assess your enquiry and reply with our recommendations. We would advise checking your email spam folder if it appears that our response has been delayed.

All patients that are interested in a surgical procedure will be required to have either an educational Zoom video call or telephone call with David Anderson (duration 30 minutes). There is no charge for this call during which David will talk through the principles of hair restoration and the potential surgical and non-surgical treatments carried out at The Maitland Clinic. Patients find this helpful when considering whether surgery might be appropriate for them. It provides an opportunity to understand the limitations of hair restoration and what might be possible in your particular case.

After the initial call with David and if surgery is felt to be appropriate for your own situation, you will be able to book a face-to-face medical consultation with Dr Ball.  The in-person consultation is required to assess your hair loss, establish a diagnosis and discuss a personalised surgical treatment plan. The charge for a face-to-face consultation with Dr Ball is £150. All consultations with Dr Ball take place at our Portsmouth clinic.

At The Maitland Clinic, we take long-term planning of surgical hair restoration very seriously. As hair loss is progressive in most cases, the need to prevent further hair loss is essential. Therefore, it is unlikely that we would recommend surgery as an option for male patients under the age of 27 unless their hair loss has been stabilised using non-surgical treatments. You may find it helpful to read our blog about who is a candidate for hair transplant surgery.

If Dr Ball feels that hair transplant surgery is unlikely to be an appropriate treatment for you, we will offer you a consultation with Marta Teixeira, our nurse prescriber and dermatology specialist nurse, in Portsmouth. Marta is able to carry out a thorough assessment and discuss non-surgical options for managing hair loss.

Surgical treatments

At The Maitland Clinic we only ever have one surgical patient each day, so you are the sole focus of attention for Dr Ball and his team. With the entire day committed to you, Dr Ball is able to take time and immense care over every graft he personally extracts. He uses his artistic eye to carefully select softer hairs to create the most natural hairlines and stronger hairs for density and coverage.

Prices include all your post-operative products and 24/7 aftercare with Dr Ball and the team.

Additional fees are applied when transplanting into non-shaven recipient areas and for repair surgery.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

Our FUE pricing is a calculated according to a flat rate of £5.50 per graft. Example prices are as follows:

1000 grafts: £5,500

1500 grafts: £8,250

2000 grafts: £11,000

Please note that there is a minimum fee for small cases.

Repair surgery carries a minimum fee (and is priced on a case-by-case basis, depending on complexity).

Non-shaved FUE is priced at £10 per graft – no shaving of the donor or recipient areas of the scalp.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Our FUT pricing is calculated on a sliding scale. Example prices are as follows:

1000 grafts: £5,500

1500 grafts: £7,500

2000 grafts: £9,500

Each additional graft over 2000 is charged at £3.00 per graft.

Please note there is a minimum fee for small cases.

Repair surgery carries a minimum fee (and is priced on a case-by-case basis, depending on complexity).


Patients are advised to seek an in-person consultation with The Maitland Clinic when comparing graft numbers and prices between different clinics. From our experience, these can differ greatly from one clinic to the next. Making choices simply based on graft numbers and pricing can lead to disappointment.

Truly great results come from an understanding of how to make every graft count; using the best technique to maximise graft survival rates, preserve the precious donor supply and create beautifully natural hairlines.

Non-surgical treatments


Patients concerned about sudden hair loss or general (diffuse) thinning throughout the scalp are rarely surgical candidates and a diagnosis needs to be made before treatment can be recommended. Men under the age of 25 are rarely candidates for hair transplant surgery due to their potential for extensive progressive hair loss and an insufficient donor hair supply to fulfil their needs.

If Dr Ball feels that hair transplant surgery is unlikely to be an appropriate treatment, we will offer you the following options:

  • Video consultation with David Anderson, our senior patient advisor
  • Consultation with Marta Teixeira, our trichologist nurse prescriber and dermatology nurse specialist in Portsmouth

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) scalp injection therapy

Not all PRP treatments are the same. It is important to know that your PRP treatment is evidence-based, using the latest technology in sterile conditions. Our PRP treatments are performed using the most advanced techniques and centrifuge devices. This enables us to obtain the highest quality plasma, with the optimal concentration of platelets in a sterile setting.

The cost of a single PRP treatment session for one area of the scalp (either the frontal half or the crown) starts at £395 and £495 for two zones (entire top of the scalp). The recommended course is 3 treatments spaced one month apart and then one maintenance treatment every 4 months thereafter.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments are available Tuesday to Friday at our Portsmouth clinic.

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

We recommend the Theradome laser helmet for treating male and female pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia). The Theradome laser helmet is priced at £899. If you would like to enquire about the laser helmet please get in touch by email:
