Female Hair Transplant in Dubai

Surgeons usually harvest hair follicles individually from donor areas which include the back and side part of the head or where hair grows most abundantly. This procedure is best for women who are going through problems like excessive hair loss. It can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, pubic hair and fill in scars caused by accidents.

Strip harvesting will leave a pencil thin linear scar in the donor area which is typically covered by the patient’s hair even at relatively short lengths.
  • Follicular unit extraction: this procedure can be more time consuming compared to strip harvesting but this can give out a more natural results. Surgeons will harvest one to four hair follicles with the use of tiny punches that are usually 0.6mm to 1.0mm in diameter. It will then be transplanted to the recipient area individually which will mimic the exact and realistic hair pattern of the hair.
