Dr. Larry's experience prompted me to book a hair transplant at medhair in Cape Town. The team is extremely warm and at the same time highly professional. Beforehand, we had a detailed consultation via chat (due to the great physical distance). On the day of the transplant, there was a detailed discussion with Dr. Larry. I was involved in the process and felt comfortable and taken seriously. His staff behaved in exactly the same way. The day was long but as pleasant as possible. I was very well looked after and can wholeheartedly recommend the clinic!

I started my journey with MHR last year in October, after some planning and saving I finally did my two day FUE procedure with them yesterday. Dr Ryan and his team were amazing. I am not a fan of being plucked and prodded, they made the process painless and super relaxed. Now that the garden is planted.... We wait...

I almost lost hope in saving my hair, but because of Dr. Larry and his team at medical hair restoration, I now walk around confidently without having to hide my hair when the wind blows or when I'm at the beach. It has only been 6 months, and the results are only getting better. Thank you, guys; you changed my life.

FUT (FUS) and FUE Donor Hair Grafts Harvesting Explained


FUT is a general term that means Follicular Unit Transplant. This term is commonly used when speaking about the Surgical Strip Excision technique of harvesting donor hair grafts.

FUE is a form of FUT that uses Follicular Unit Extraction to harvest donor grafts. With FUE, grafts are extracted individually from the donor area using a small “punch”.

Ethnic Hair Transplantation Surgery

African Hair Transplant Surgery

More than any other surgical speciality, the difference between mediocre and exceptional hair grafting results, lie in planning and relentless pursuit of perfection. Well done.


I knew Dr Larry had been practising for 30 years and I have seen him featured as a guest on numerous TV shows over the years. So I decided that he would be the best person to choose. A year later I am really happy with the results.

Unlock Natural Confidence: Hair Transplant Solutions in Cape Town, South Africa

Medical Hair Restoration, nestled in the heart of Cape Town, South Africa, stands as your beacon of hope, offering advanced solutions to reclaim your natural locks and confidence.

Understanding Hair Loss

Hair loss affects millions worldwide, often resulting from genetics, hormonal imbalances, stress, or medical conditions. While it’s a common concern, the impact on one’s emotional well-being cannot be understated. Individuals facing hair loss often seek effective and lasting solutions to restore their hair and confidence.

Introducing Medical Hair Restoration

Located in Cape Town, Medical Hair Restoration emerges as the leading authority in hair transplantation, offering cutting-edge techniques tailored to your unique needs. What sets them apart? Medical Hair Restoration proudly stands as the sole clinic in South Africa providing both Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) surgeries.

FUT: The Gold Standard

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) remains the gold standard in hair restoration surgery. During FUT, skilled surgeons meticulously harvest a strip of hair-bearing scalp from the donor area, typically the back and/or sides of the head. The harvested follicles are then dissected and transplanted into the recipient area, ensuring natural-looking results with minimal scarring.

FUE: Precision Redefined

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) revolutionizes hair transplantation with its minimally invasive approach. Unlike FUT, FUE involves extracting individual follicular units directly from the donor site using specialized instruments. This technique boasts shorter recovery times and virtually eliminates visible scarring, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a discreet solution to hair loss.
