LHT Hair Transplant

LHT – or Long Hair Transplantation – is a Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) technique that allows the doctor to transplant long hair from one area of the scalp to another. This technique does not require shaving the hair. LHT cuts down on the prep time for the operation by removing the need to cut the hair beforehand. The technique also allows for the immediate, post-operational previewing of the final results


What is LHT

It is important to note that the LHT technique does not produce immediate results. Rather, it allows for the preview of these results, as well as providing additional benefits:

Combined with the traditional FUT hair transplantation procedure’s benefits, LHT can be the right choice for you! The final results of this treatment are usually visible within 9-10 months post-operation.

Advantages of LHT hair transplant


High number of grafts in a single session


Easier harvesting and no shaving required


High graft survival rate


Low transection rate


Preview the results immediatelly after procedure

Disadvantages of LHT hair transplant


Higher price per graft


Longer post-operative period


Hair will fall out weeks after operation, to regrow months later

Whan is LHT appropirate?

LHT is an extension of the FUT procedure, which means that if the FUT procedure is right for you, the LHT procedure might be as well. Still, every individual case and patient is unique in their needs, which is why it is not easy to determine who might need the procedure before a consultation.

LHT operations before and after results

At the Akaki Tsilosani Hair Transplantation Institute, hair transplantation operations are conducted by Akaki Tsilosani, MD, FISHRS, personally. The LHT procedure is done at the highest professional level, with results guaranteed to be visible within the period of 8-12 months. The Akaki Tsilosani Hair Transplantation Clinic also offers a moneyback guarantee (for more information contact us). 

The LHT procedure is done with the highest level of precision and care, ensuring that it is painless from start to finish. The procedure starts with a small anesthetic solution injection, which dulls the pain from the transplantation process. While the procedure may take several hours, the facilities at our clinic provide you with a comfortable setting to go through it. The postoperative period also involves the doctor being in touch with you on your progress over the next two days, ensuring a painless and short recovery period. We keep in touch with you to answer any questions you might have about the procedure post operation. You can learn more about how your days leading up to the operation and in the period after the operation might look like here.
