Losing hair at an alarming rate? Worried about the receding hairline? Hair Transplant is the solution to your problem.
What is Hair Transplant?
Hair transplant is the surgical procedure used to treat hair loss and improve baldness. Hair transplant is where the hair follicles or hair bearing skin from one part of the scalp is taken and grafting them to the bald areas or thinning areas of the scalp. It is mainly used to treat male pattern baldness. Hair transplant is also known as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).
Hair transplant helps people suffering from hair loss due to various reasons like common male pattern baldness also known as androgenetic alopecia, inflammation of the scalp, injuries due to accidents, burns, and scalds. There are certain diseases which can cause permanent hair loss like lichen planus, lupus or morphea, these patients can be treated with hair transplant surgery to restore their hair.

Procedure of Hair Transplant in Dubai
Before the hair transplant surgery, the patient is required to have a consultation with the hair transplant surgeon to decide if hair transplant is suitable for them. The surgeon will analyze their scalp and discuss with the patient about their preferences and inform the patient of the procedure suitable for them, how many treatment sessions they will need and tell them what to expect afterwards.
During the surgery the patient will be given local anesthesia to numb the scalp and other medications if necessary to help them relax. Then the scalp is cleaned thoroughly.
Then a strip of the scalp which is hairy is removed surgically and kept aside and then the scalp is closed with stitches. The strip of hairy scalp removed is known as the ‘donor’ and that area is the donor area.
The bald scalp area is cleaned and the groups of hair or individual hair from the donor area depending on the treatment required are placed in the bald areas by making tiny incisions in the scalp. These areas are known as the recipient areas.
During a hair transplant surgery hundreds or thousands of hairs can be transplanted.
After Hair Transplant Surgery
You may have to wear a large surgical dressing or smaller dressing depending on your treatment for a day or two. You may experience some discomfort, a tight feeling in the scalp, some numbness, swelling and bruising which is normal and can vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the surgery.
During the recovery period your scalp will feel tender and you will be prescribed with painkillers to reduce the discomfort and the doctor might even prescribe antibiotics or anti-inflammatory medicine after the surgery to ensure the healing is smooth without complications.
You will be able to experience excellent hair growth several months after the surgery and some instances might require more treatment to achieve better results.
