As a COVID-19 Protected Clinic, we are currently offering initial online consultations which are carried out by email or video call with David Anderson, Senior patient advisor. This assists with social distancing and patients find it to be a very convenient and constructive way to gather information regarding hair restoration options.
Patients that wish to start the consultation process will be asked to fill out a confidential short form and upload some photos. From there you will have two options.
Option 1– Zoom video call with David Anderson, Senior Patient Advisor £50 (approx duration 30 minutes).
During lockdown we decided to offer this resource free of charge, however there is now a nominal charge for this initial advice.
At this point, a face to face medical consultation with Dr Edward Ball can be arranged. This is required to assess your hair loss and discuss a personalised surgical treatment plan. The charge for a face to face consultation with Dr Ball is £150. There is an additional charge of £100, if you have already paid £50 for the video call.
Option 2– Online email advice- Free of charge.
For those wishing to understand general options available to manage hair loss, learn more about the surgical options and pricing.
To arrange a consultation please complete the contact form below, call or email us.
Please note that we are currently experiencing high volumes of enquiries. Current waiting times are 2-4 weeks for a video consultation and then the face to consultation, is likely to be another 4-6 weeks after the video consultation. We thank you for your patience during this time.
Face to face consultations with Dr Ball and David are currently taking place on Mondays only at our Portsmouth clinic. All patients are required to have a video call as a first step. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are available Tuesday – Friday at our main Portsmouth clinic.
Trichology consultations and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are also available at our London clinic.
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 provided. Certain case types will be more suited to see our in-house trichologist, Eva Proudman MIT IAT, who specialises in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of hair loss. More information about Eva can be found here.
Non-surgical consultations are held with Eva Proudman from £100.
At the time of your enquiry, we can suggest the most suitable type of consultation for your situation. Patients aged 27 and under are rarely surgical candidates. At The Maitland Clinic we take long term planning of surgical hair restoration very seriously. Hair loss is progressive in most cases, the need to prevent further hair loss is essential. Therefore it is very unlikely that we would consider patients under the age of 27 for surgery, unless their hair loss is stable using non 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.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
Our FUT pricing is as follows: Up to 1000 grafts: £4 per graft Each additional graft after the first 1000 grafts charged at:
- £3.50 per graft (1001-1500 grafts)
- £2.50 per graft (1501-2000 grafts)
- £2.00 per graft (2000 grafts and over)
EXAMPLE: 1750 grafts by FUT is priced as follows: 1000 grafts at £4 per graft (£4,000) + 500 grafts at £3.50 per graft (£1,750) + 250 grafts at £2.50 per graft (£625)
Total (£4000 + £1750 + £625) = £6375
Please note there is a minimum fee that applies for small cases under 1000 grafts.
Facial hair transplants
Beard, eyebrow, sideburn and moustache transplant prices start from £3,500, including aftercare. The total cost will depend on the number of grafts and the type of procedure required.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Scalp to scalp FUE is priced at £5 per graft. Beard to scalp FUE is priced at £6 per graft.
For patients requiring less than 1000 grafts, the total cost would be provided on a case by case basis and can only be established once seen in person for a consultation.
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.
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.
A single PRP treatment for half the top of the head starts from £395 at our Portsmouth clinic. Treatment is commenced with a loading regime of 3 treatments, one month apart. Maintenance treatments are then performed every 6-12 months, depending on your individual response. Package prices for 3 treatments can be purchased in advance at a reduced rate.
