Our specialists – including Dr Ball – know that every patient is unique and we treat them accordingly. We will spend time listening to you, assessing your individual needs and discussing the most suitable treatment options with you. You will be armed with all the information you need to make a well-informed choice. If we feel that a hair transplant is not appropriate for you – as is frequently the case – we will tell you, and recommend an alternative form of treatment that provides the best chance of achieving the life-changing results that you deserve.
We understand that your hair is a vital part of your identity. That’s why we focus on providing natural hair transplants that seamlessly blend with your existing hair. Our advanced techniques and the tireless attention to detail displayed by Dr Ball and his world-class team ensure precise and virtually undetectable results. You deserve a hairline that looks and feels completely natural, and our entire focus is aimed at that goal.
The Maitland Clinic is equipped with leading-edge hair transplant technology. As a practice we are at the forefront of the hair restoration field, regularly participating in international conferences and workshops. Our surgical techniques and instruments are constantly updated along with the latest scientific advancements.
Dr Ball uses Tricholab video trichoscopy during your consultation to examine your scalp and hair in microscopic detail. You will see the live images on a large screen so that you are involved in the process and to help you understand how Dr Ball forms his diagnosis and identifies the best hairs for a natural-looking hairline.
Aftercare is extremely important to us. From your initial consultation to post-operative follow-up, we’ll be there to support and guide you every step of the way.
An open, ethical approach is fundamental to The Maitland Clinic ethos. We are proud of our patients’ results – but we are equally proud of the honesty and detail with which we display before-and-after pictures in our results gallery, complete with multiple angles, high definition, close-up detail and consistent lighting and positioning. That means that what you see is a true and objective representation of the result.
Our patient video diaries also provide you with a genuine, transparent insight into the life-changing results our treatments can offer.
