Hair transplant surgery is considered as an ideal treatment for hair regrowth in individuals who have permanently lost their hair. Introduced in the mid of 20th century, Hair Transplantation gained popularity slowly and steadily and today it is the most demanded and the most performed hair loss treatment. Today, we see its beneficiaries around the world. Most of the individuals are so happy with the results that they go for further sessions to treat progressive hair loss after the surgery.
How the surgery is performed?
Hair transplant or surgical hair restoration is nothing but redistribution of your existing hair. Like other parts of the body, your hairs are also affected by aging and you start shedding them over time. But luckily, every balding person has certain areas of the head that are resistant to baldness, like the back and the sides of the head. Even in men suffering from severe hair loss lose hairs from our hairline and crown area only, and retain plenty of hair on the back and sides of their head.
During a hair transplant surgery, the surgeon extracts hair follicles from these balding resistant areas using either of the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method and transplants them into the baldness affected areas. Fortunately, these hair follicles keep their balding resistant characteristics even after their change of origin and do not fall out quickly.
It is a simple yet lengthy procedure that generally takes 6 to 8 hours for its completion. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia without sedation. However, if you are pain sensitive or the idea of lying awake on the bed doing nothing does not appeal you, you can always ask your surgeon to perform the surgery with sedation.
What about hair transplant recovery and results?
Hair restoration is performed on outpatient basis and the patient is free to go home right after the procedure. Recovery time is short; however, you need to be patient to see your hair transplant results. You can resume most of the daily activities within 3 to 7 days after the surgery, depending on the hair transplant method used. FUE transplant involves less downtime and recovery time as compared to the traditional Strip method transplant (FUT). However, strenuous activities like exercise must not be resumed for two to three weeks. Transplanted hairs will remain in an inactive state for the first 2-3 months before they will start growing again. It will take 6 to 8 months before you will start noticing any growth. However, full results may be seen after 12 to 18 months.

"I was really pleased with my experience at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery. I had to cancel the first date I booked, because of my daughter, but when I called them the next day, they fit us in that afternoon, which was really good. My mum and I went to a free consultation for Laser Assisted Liposuction, and it went very well. We were really impressed with the doctor, Dr. Juan Tadeo Krogulec - he was lovely. He spent as long as we needed with us, and didn't rush us. He was really thorough and not only did he answer all of our questions, he answered others we hadn't even thought of asking! I think that when the time comes for treatment we'll probably be going with them.".
I am very satisfied with my results. I strongly recommend this clinic for every one who wants great result and its very cheap to :). Dr. Cagtay and his team are very professional and do take care of their patients.".
