After years of deliberating what to do with my hairline issue, a friend recommended consulting with Dr Lakob in Morningside. He was a great starting point as he was friendly, knowledgeable and very supportive. I knew that I wanted to proceed with the FUT hair transplant based on his recommendation but I had to wait on the right time and once the time had arrived nothing could have prepared me for the brilliance that awaited me after the encounter with Dr Lakob. To Dr Ryan, Shan, Angelo and the 4 angels who worked on my grafts (two of whom transplanted them as well) - you're a fantastic team of people who made the great trek from Gauteng to Western Cape ever so worth it. Your ability to make one feel welcomed and at ease knowing that they are in capable and attentive hands is such a plus when not knowing what to expect and going into a procedure like this that may seem quite daunting. The way you provide a detailed account of each step of the procedure, why it's done a certain way and how it will be of benefit allows one to be aware and confidently trust the process. I Iiterally felt like a queen considering how well I was taken care of from ensuring I had eaten, I had the correct attire on for the procedure, I was comfortable, warm and never in pain and I was accompanied to the uber driver to ensure my safety after the procedure. I was in the company of genuine, kind hearted people who impact others daily with their life changing work. I give the experience a more than content 20 out of 10 because it exceeded my expectations and now I look forward to patiently observing how my hair grows on the grafted area and fully embracing the blessing of the gift that MHR has given to me. Thank you so much for everything, you've recruited a huge fan and I will sing your praises any chance I get.

As a medical practitioner myself and only 4 months after surgery I am amazed by my result so far. Can't wait to see the final result. Definitely recommend this facility. Both for medically maintaining your hair and to replace the hair you have lost.

I paid for an online consultation on 28th April, it's now the 3rd May. I have not heard anything. I have sent emails with no responses. Not great service, from the start. Update, I was contacted. An appointment was setup. Very happy with the appointment and the way forward with my treatment. The Doctor was very kind and understanding to listen to my health situation. She recommended a treatment program, and said I could email with any questions.
I Highly recommend this practice, the doctor is absolutely brilliant and he takes the time to explain all the possible treatment options that you can have . I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family

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

A specific passion for ethnic hair transplants has been created with Doctor Larry.

There are a couple of explanations for this, and for Doctor Larry, that really is the best outcome for you.

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.
