Hair Transplant Frequently Asked Questions | Dubai Cosmetic Surgery®

Hair Transplant FAQ’s

How Does Hair Transplantation Work?

It all starts when the consultant and the surgeon identify how big your thinning/balding area is and how many grafts you will need. After this, the donor area capacity is examined, which is at the back and sides of your head where hair the thickest. If enough grafts can be harvested from your donor area, then the procedure is a go. At the Hair Transplant Room, the surgeon will harvest the hairs from the donor area and implant them on your thinning area. All this is done when you are very awake.

Which Hair Transplant Techniques Are Used?

At the moment we have three Hair Transplant techniques, which are:

  • Stem Cell Follicular Unit Extraction – It is the latest hair transplant technique which is less invasive with less downtime, very minimal scarring and faster healing. It guarantees high hair density and gives natural and permanent results
  • Follicular Unit Extraction: Is an advanced technique used for Hair Transplant that involves extracting hair follicles one by one, then relocating them to the thinning areas of the scalp.
  • The Follicular Unit Transplant: Also known as the strip method, involves removal of follicles or grafts in the form of a linear strip from the donor area. This strip is then divided into small grafts under stereo-microscope before implanting into the bald or balding areas of the scalp.
How Long Does It Take to Recover After a Hair Transplant Procedure?

 Depending on which Hair Transplant technique you have opted for, the recovery period will be different. You will go home the same day as the procedure, and the following day you will be physically fine. All procedures combined, you will need at least a downtime of between 3 and 4 days, but there are some cases that can take up to ONE week. We recommend that you give yourself at least 5 – 7 days to recover.

Hair Transplant Procedure Time?

 Since it’s all a matter of how many grafts your balding area will need, the procedure takes different lengths of time. But to be clear, all the procedures start early in the morning, which means you can be finished by afternoon or evening.

Is the Hair Transplant Procedure Painful?

 During the procedure, there is usually zero pain because the surgeon administers local anaesthesia on both your donor and recipient areas. This will numb both areas. Afterwards when it wears off, you will feel a bit of discomfort, and depending on your pain threshold, you might choose to take something to sooth the discomfort or just let it be.

How Long Will it Be Before Hair Transplant Results Are Seen?

 Also depending on the Hair Transplant Technique you choose, it can take up to 6 to 9 months to see fully grown hair. The results are also natural and permanent and you can treat the new hairs as you do with the rest of your hair. This means you can style, colour and even cut them and they will continue growing.

Is There a Guarantee for Hair transplanting?

After the procedure, we guarantee that the transplanted grafts will grow naturally, and they are permanent. If this does not happen according to the acceptable standards, we assure our patients that we will perform a free and fresh hair transplant procedure again.

How Long Does it Take The Transplanted Hair to Grow?

 Just like in farming, when you plant seedlings, you have to be patient and wait for them to sprout then grow. This also happens with Hair Transplant; you have to be patient after the procedure. Two months after the Hair Transplant procedure, your new hair will sprout and then this will continue at a rate of 10% to 15% per month. With each passing month, you will notice your mane getting thicker. At SIX months you will have approximately 70% growth. Although this will be encouraging, you will have to judge the results at NINE months to ONE year.
