What to expect from a crown hair transplant

Natural Results

Dr Mark Tam and his team will not fight against nature, they will go with the flow of your hair. By following your biological hair direction as much as possible, Dr Tam can achieve the most natural crown transplant. Prior to your procedure we will discuss your natural growth direction, including observations such as a double crown or a crown cowlick.

Ultra High Density

When creating recipient sites for your grafts, conventional surgical tools are commonly employed. However, recognising the critical importance of aligning the size of the site closely with both the size and depth of your grafts, Dr Tam exclusively utilises custom-made incision tools for every procedure. This enables a higher density of grafts resulting in a denser, fuller crown.

Minimal Procedure Signs

A crucial aspect of reducing noticeable signs of the FUE procedure in the donor area lies in the surgeon's harvesting technique. Dr Tam employs a tiny surgical punch, paired with expert spacing between follicles, to ensure minimal visible impact in the donor area. As a result, you have the flexibility to choose various hairstyles, whether long or short, without concern.

Crown Hair Transplant FAQs

Hair loss, specifically thinning or balding at the crown, can stem from various factors. Genetics play a significant role, with hereditary conditions like male-pattern baldness contributing to crown thinning over time. Hormonal changes can also impact hair growth patterns. Additionally, aging plays a role, as the hair growth cycle slows down with age, leading to increased hair loss, especially in men. These factors can collectively contribute to crown thinning or balding.

Candidates for crown hair transplants typically have thinning or balding hair specifically in the crown area. Good candidates generally have enough donor hair available from the back or sides of the scalp for transplantation.

Local anaesthesia is used during the procedure to numb the scalp, so patients typically do not feel any pain. Some discomfort or soreness may be experienced after the surgery, but this can usually be managed with pain medication prescribed by the surgeon.

You can discover all hair transplant fees, including consultation charges, via our hair transplant costs page. FUE treatment prices start at £11,250. However, following your initial consultation, we will be able to provide you with your specific treatment cost.

The number of grafts needed for a crown hair transplant can vary depending on several factors, including the size of the area to be covered, the density desired, and the quality of the donor hair available. Generally, crown hair transplants may require anywhere from 500 to 2000 grafts or more. Dr Tam will be able to assess your specific needs and provide a personalised recommendation based on factors such as your hair loss pattern and goals for restoration.

I recently had a hair transplant with Dr Mark Tam and I couldn't be happier with the results (December 2022). From the moment I walked into his office, I knew I was in good hands. His staff was friendly and welcoming, and Dr Tam was very professional and knowledgeable.

The procedure itself was quick and relatively painless, and I was pleasantly surprised by how little discomfort I experienced during the surgery and how fast the recovery was. Now, several months later, I am thrilled with the results so far. My hair looks natural and thick, and I have received numerous compliments on the significant improvement to my overall look thanks to Dr Tam's skilled work.

I highly recommend Dr Mark Tam for anyone considering a hair transplant. He is a true professional who truly cares about his patients and delivering the best possible results. Thank you, Dr Tam!


I recently had a procedure at Dr Mark Tam's surgery. The level of care and professionalism shown by the team was first class. I was made to feel like a VIP from the initial consultation, through surgery on the day, and all the way to aftercare.

Having surgery can be a daunting experience but Dr Tam and the team made everything easy to understand at every stage of the process.

I would highly recommend Dr Mark Tam and his expert team for anyone considering a hairline restoration procedure.


I underwent a hair transplant with Mark and his team in May 2023. It was a significant procedure involving ~2,800 bearing ~5,500 hairs in total. I was extremely impressed by the whole process.

Mark is very thorough in his pre-procedure care, hairline planning, and expectation management. In my case, I was working with both him and a second doctor with whom I plan to have a connected procedure next year. That all went very smoothly. The procedure itself was gloriously uneventful. Mark's team is a well-oiled machine, with everything going as previously explained. The whole thing took 12 hours, and I was extremely well cared from throughout. A great experience.

As to the results, it's only ~2 weeks post-op as I type but i am already thrilled with the results. After care has also been great.


After reviewing various clinics across the UK before deciding to go ahead with my transplant, it was clear to me that Dr Mark Tam put the customer at the forefront and the experience which they aim to deliver is unrivalled.

My personal experience - Dr Mark Tam and his team were exceptional from start to finish, the meticulous planning that went into my procedure both before and on the day was nothing short of extraordinary. They made me feel completely at ease especially throughout the surgery.

I would highly recommend if you are considering getting a hairline transplant to meet with Dr Mark Tam and you will see first-hand why he is at the forefront of his field.


I had my procedure with Dr Tam back in June (6 months ago) but I wanted to deliberately wait until now to write my review, so I could also share the amazing results.

The consultation wasn't free but was far, far more thorough than anything else I'd come across. Dr Tam used a range of methods to calculate the number of follicles required for the specific area - his fee structure is completely transparent and is based on this.

Dr Tam is a clearly master of his trade - its clear he takes pride in his work but also provides first class service. I would recommend Dr Tam anyone.


Just wanted to thank Dr Mark and his incredible team for the entire experience. From the initial 'photo / email' consultation, to the in person session in Dr Mark's office, to the day, I was absolutely blown away by the friendliness and professionalism.

I immediately knew that I was getting the best of the best when it comes to hair transplants and now that I am a couple of weeks down the line in recovery I can already see the talented work that he and his team put together.

Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a transplant!


I had my procedure last weekend and as such am now 8 days post procedure. I had 2100 grafts placed in the frontal area.

All I can say is, Dr Tam and his team provided the the absolute highest standard of service before, during and after the surgery. They are a well oiled, highly skilled machine with a genuine empathetic and human touch.

The only mistake I made was turning up tired and anxious about the procedure, which was completely unfounded. If anyone else is getting them self worked up pre- procedure, please don't, you are in the absolute safest hands.


Dr Tam combines excellence with unrivalled client care to provide a service that is, simply put, outstanding.

Every conceivable detail is covered to ensure comfort, discretion, and a positive experience on the day of surgery. Dr Tam is sincerely personable and friendly; he totally puts you at ease from first contact, all the way to the conclusion of surgery and through aftercare. I went to Dr Tam as he was recommended to me by somebody who insisted he is the best hair transplant surgeon in London, and he more than lived up to this reputation.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr Tam to anybody considering hair restoration; this is a life changing procedure, and I honestly don't think you could find a more dedicated surgeon, with such phenomenal levels of client care. If you go ahead with Dr Tam, rest assured, you are in the safest hands out there.
