Note: This list is strictly not in order.
1. Angeline Yong Dermatology
Dr Angeline Yong is a MOH-accredited dermatologist in dealing with hair issues. A surgeon who sub-specialises in hair transplantation, she was previously the lead for National Skin Centre’s hair transplant service. The 2 procedures Dr Angeline Yong has made available for those facing serious hair loss are the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
FUT is ideal for clients needing a significant amount of hair grafts, is less expensive, and may have a shorter surgery timeframe. FUE, on the other hand, is the process where individual follicular units are removed with barely noticeable scars remaining. This is suited for those requiring a small number of hairline grafts. Even though it has a longer surgery time, a plus point is that is has a fast recovery period.
Ultimately, everyone is unique and not all types of hair loss are amenable to surgery. Hence, it is best to leave it to the hands of the professional Dr Angeline Yong to examine your hair and recommend what suitable actions to take for your thinning crown!

2. The Clifford Clinic
The Clifford Clinic would like to introduce you to the technique of Robotic Follicular Unit Extraction, which requires the usage of a machine. How it works is that hair extracted from other parts of the client’s head will be transferred to the balding area. Safe, precise, fast, and minimally invasive; this painless procedure takes approximately 12 hours at maximum, with only 3 days of recovery time needed. Not only that, this treatment comes coupled with a low risk of scarring where your hair is expected to grow again within 3 to 12 months!
The only way to know if the procedure is suited for you would be to attend a consultation session with their qualified doctors. Though the cost is high, the results are permanent – unlike costly traditional medications which cannot promise you long-lasting results. The scars are minimal too and the new hairs will appear at a gradual growth speed. For natural-looking results that leave no room for suspicion, book a consultation with The Clifford Clinic today, and they will work with you to help restore your receding hairline.

3. Dr Eileen Tan Skin Laser & Hair Transplant Clinic
The qualified dermatologist, Dr Eileen Tan, performs a hair transplanting surgery where hair-bearing skin is surgically removed and placed onto thinning areas of the patient’s head. After a short resting period, the transplanted hair will quickly take root before growing out. Under the contact of anaesthesia, this surgery takes about 4 to 6 hours. Though you will be awake, expect little pain and a mild sedative will be given to help you feel relaxed.
There may be complications arising from minor infections around a newly transplanted hair follicle. But other than that, this remains to be a safe surgical process. Dr Eileen Tan is committed to doing her utmost best to replicate your natural hairline. When you entrust Dr Eileen to give you back your natural and full head of living hairs, what grows back as a result is more than just hair strands, but also the self-confidence you once thought you had lost forever.

4. Aesthetics Central Clinic
Using tonics to treat hair loss is not an option for Aesthetics Central Clinic. What they want to offer you instead is a treatment that promises you a permanent and full thickness of hair on the thinning areas of your head. With a low downtime and a 90% success rate, these successfully replanted hairs can last past your 60s and 70s as well!
However, no two hair transplants are the same. As it is a tedious and repetitive process, a robot will be used to increase the precision, reliability and speed of each hair transplant. This process is also known as the Robotic Hair Restoration. What is good about it is that there is minimised post-operation discomfort, short healing time, a line scar absence for the donor area and reduced risk of poor scarring. Most importantly, your precious follicles will no longer go to waste with any possible human error. Results are highly visible between 3 to 12 months after the procedure.

5. EHA Clinic
Besides hair loss, hair transplant could also be used to cover up scars arising from burns, surgical procedures like a facelift; or for those that would like to hide a facial feature that can be covered by the hair. As it takes months before the transplanted hair even starts to grow, it will be necessary to plan ahead if there is a target date to meet your desired outcome. EHA Clinic’s Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) individually extracts each unit of the patient’s hair follicle, leaving little visible scarring and minimum risk of a blood vessel or nerve injury. This procedure delivers natural results, a huge criteria for many with hair loss troubles out there.
Dr Elias Tan himself, from EHA Clinic, is an Asia Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons’ member. If you are keen to read up more about the procedure, do make sure to give EHA Clinic’s website a click.
