Making the decision to have a hair transplant is not easy. But when your mind is made up and you approach the hair transplant in Dubai specialist, you might have a few doubts and a lot of questions. The questions and answers below are to help you understand a little bit about the process of hair transplant in Dubai and make you feel at ease about the entire process.
At Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic, we are the leading hair restoration facility in the Gulf region. Our experts are the best in their field of hair restoration. They are all highly skilled and experienced in the latest hair transplant techniques, and have worked closely together for many years. After your hair transplant, at Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic we keep in touch with you for more than a year so that we can help and support you through your hair restoration journey. At HTD, it is not all business, it is personal too.
For the ideal candidate, hair transplant would improve his/her life considerably. But for you to be one, you have to be an adult with established hair loss, no medical conditions and allergies, in great health and with enough hair from the donor site.
Just like men, women can also have a hair transplant surgery as well. If you are suffering from pattern baldness similar to that of a man, or you have lost your hair in other ways that can make it possible to restore, and you are in great health with sufficient hair at the donor site, then yes, you can have hair transplant surgery.
There is minimal discomfort experienced during a hair transplant procedure. To make the patient comfortable, the surgeon will give him/her a local anaesthesia. After the procedure, the patient will also be given very light medication to control any discomfort he/she might feel afterwards.
Having hair transplant using someone else’s hair is not possible because your body would reject the transplanted hair. On the other hand, you can use immunosuppressant drugs, but these have higher risks than living with hair loss. Again, for you to find someone with the same hair colour, texture, thickness is close to impossible not unless he/she is your twin sibling. But the chance with twins is that if one is losing his/her hair, the other will sooner or later.
At Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic, our team of experienced experts can correct a poorly done hair transplant job. These include scalps that have huge gaps in between the hair follicles as well as bald patches and hair plug results.
With the current hair transplant technique that we are currently using at Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic, which Stem Cell FUE, you will most likely suffer from shock loss. But the best thing about this procedure, your hair will regenerate and regrow back within a period of 3-6 months.
Shedding of hair after a hair transplant procedure is a normal part of the hair restoration process. The shedding usually happens to some of the patient’s existing hair in and around the site of the hair transplant. This is a normal response by the body to the trauma caused to the scalp.
It all depends on the number of grafts to be implanted. Normally, it can take up to eight hours if the transplant area is big and more than 2500+ grafts will need to be implanted, while on the other hand for less grafts, it can take up to 4-5 hours. At Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic, we always take breaks during a long surgical process to enable the patient to stretch a bit, eat etc.
When it comes to hair transplant, patience is the key. The new hair will not grow overnight. But on average, it can take up to 10 weeks for you to start seeing new hair. On the other hand, it varies from one person to the next, and for some people it can take up to a year after the procedure. So it is very important to not overreact.
After your hair transplant procedure, it might take up to a year to see the full results. This means in terms of thickness, texture etc. At this time, the new hair will also adopt to the characteristics of the patients native hair. But do not forget that patience is the key. It might take longer than that.
