Just a quick note about FUE. I have seen recently several patients who have had FUE overseas. While the transplant looks ok , the donor area looks very thin and patchy and with lots of white dot scars. Because the “experts” overseas have taken way too much FUE out of the back, the patient cannot wear their hair short anymore, which is strange because that is the main reason people have FUE is to avoid scarring !! So just a warning for you out there who visit clinics that only do FUE, if they take too much (too many grafts e.g.over 3000) you wont be able to cut the hair under about a  number 4 and you will have hair loss at the back and sides, which is fine as long as you are told that before you spend all the money.

Hi there, yes we are accepting Bitcoin (and Ethereum and Litecoin for that matter) as payment for hair transplants in Melbourne. We don’s think anyone will actually take us up on it though, because Bitcoin keep rising in value and that could make for a very expensive transplant should they keep rising. 

Good luck to all those Bitcoiners, and Seasons Greetings to all.



Hi HTM fans. This week at HTM we have done 2 FUT procedures, one 2000 grafts and one 2200 grafts. Both were men aged in their late 20’s. They chose FUT not FUE because they wear their hair long-ish and are not concerned with a fine scar well-hidden by their hair. They also know that the scar can be repaired in the rare instance it is needed quite simply. They both might need a total lifetime grafts count of 3500 , done in two separate procedures probably 3-5 years apart. If over 3000 grafts is taken from the donor area with FUE it can thin out that area significantly and show hair loss there should they cut the hair short. FUT is taken from the centre of the safe zone with skin removal so the hair density is kept normal on either side of a fine scar. FUE is taken out spread over a large area and so not only does it thin the area but there is increased risk that the hair is taken outside the safe zone at larger transplant numbers and so may not survive forever. Food for thought. Come in for a consultation if you want this explained further. 

Best Wishes
