Hair Transplant

A hair transplant is the most suitable option for all individuals who are facing baldness problems. If you want to restore natural hair growth, you can choose between FUT and FUE hair transplant techniques. Slight hair enhancement is also possible through the Scalp Micropigmentation technique. In short, hair transplant in Dubai is a very effective hair loss solution.

what is Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which hair follicles are extracted from one part of the head known as the “donor site” and implanted into the balding area of the head known as the “recipient site.” It is considered an effective technique to treat male pattern baldness. The donor site is mainly the area that is resistant to baldness and has a significant amount of donor hair e.g. back or sides of the head. You can use a hair transplant procedure to restore your eyebrows, eyelashes, and even beard hair.

There are two different ways of extracting the donor’s hair. One is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) also known as strip harvesting and the other is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Both of these techniques can help you restore your natural hair growth permanently.

Hair Transplant Before & After

The results of hair transplants are fantastic. You not only get natural-looking hair back but also live without the fear of losing them in the future. Since donor grafts are obtained from baldness-resistant areas, they do not fall off even under the influence of Dihydrotestosterone. It normally takes about 3 to 4 months for the transplanted hair to start growing and about 8 months to a year to reach full length. You can trim, cut, and style transplanted hair according to your own choice.

Are you a candidate?

A hair transplant is not for everybody. You are an ideal candidate for a hair transplant if you;

  • Have a healthy donor area with an adequate hair supply for transplantation.
  • Suffer from pattern baldness or hair thinning.
  • Lost hair due to any incident like burn or injury.
  • Do not have any serious diseases like hemophilia, hepatitis C or HIV.
  • Are not allergic to anesthesia.
  • Are not diabetic.

In addition to this, if the skin on your scalp is lax, you should not undergo a hair transplant because lax scalp skin is not suitable for the procedure.

Hair Transplant FAQs

How Does Hair Transplantation Work?

First of all, your balding/thinning area is examined to determine the number of grafts you will require. After this, the donor area capacity is examined, which is normally the back or sides of your head where the hairs are thickest. If enough grafts can be harvested from your donor area, the procedure is good to go. After that, the surgeon will harvest the hair from the donor area and implant them in your thinning area. All this is done when you are very awake.

Is Hair Transplant permanent?

Hair transplantation in Dubai is a permanent treatment as the results cannot be reversed. It restores hair growth and gives you a natural hairline permanently. Also, you can cut, style, and trim your transplanted hair easily without the fear of falling out.

Is hair transplant safe?

Dubai Hair Transplant is a safe procedure when performed by an experienced and licensed hair transplant surgeon. Only a well-trained surgeon can ensure patient safety during the procedure and the chances of side effects and complications also decrease. However, do not forget that every person has a different condition and his/her healing abilities also vary. Therefore, results cannot be predicted.

How long does it take to recover after a hair transplant procedure?

You will require at least one week to recover and get back to work after hair transplant surgery. After 2-3 weeks, you will observe that transplanted hair fall out and new hairs start growing. You will see complete hair growth within 6-9 months.

How long does a hair transplant procedure take?

It takes 4-8 hours to complete the hair transplant procedure depending on the number of grafts your balding area will need.

Is Hair Transplant Painful?

During the procedure, there is usually no pain because the surgeon administers local anesthesia to numb both donor and recipient areas. However, when the effect of anesthesia wears off, you will feel a bit of discomfort because it is a surgical procedure. Also, depending on your pain threshold, your surgeon might prescribe you some pain killers.

How to calculate the number of grafts?

The required number of grafts can be calculated by understanding the Norwood scale. The Norwood scale outlines the hair loss patterns that are common in male pattern baldness. It helps the clinicians to determine the extent of baldness and the estimated number of grafts for the transplant. Norwood scale has 7 stages of hair loss.

Stage 1: No significant hair loss at this stage, so there is no need to transplant hair.

Stage 2: At this stage, there is a slight recession in the hairline around the temples.

Stage 2a: Hair loss occurs in the center of the scalp, and 500-800 hair grafts are required for surgery.

Stage 3: You will observe hair loss at the front and around the temples. 1000 to 1400 hair grafts are required for this hair loss pattern.

Stage 3a: Hair loss occurs at the front and crown. Almost 1000 to 1400 hair grafts are required for the front and 500 to 1000 for the crown.

Stage 4: In this hair loss pattern, you require 1200 – 1600 grafts for the front and 800 to 1100 for the crown.

Stage 4a: You will observe significant hair loss at the front, for which 1700 to 2500 hair grafts are required.

Stage 5: Hair loss occurs at the front and crown. Approximately 1800 to 2200 hair grafts are required for the front, and 1000 to 1500 are needed for the crown.

Stage 5a: This stage in male pattern baldness requires 2500 to 3200 hair grafts.

Stage 6+: At this stage, you will require 1800 to 2500 hair grafts for the front and 1500 to 1700 for the crown.
