Steps of the Hair Transplantation Procedure

Steps of the Hair Transplantation Procedure

No one minds looking good. People are willing to pay top buck just to add a little charm and glamour to their persona. With advancements in the field of cosmetic surgery, it is surely a high time for such people to have their wish granted. It’s not just women that love their locks, men are equally in love with theirs. Unlike era gone by, men can now get their own hair growing back and can shelf the not so real solutions they used to use. Hair transplants are the talk of the town and not without reason.

Most people love the ending, but as it is said it’s the journey that matters not the destination. Few pay attention to the process that goes behind the success of growing new hair. A look into the nitty-gritty of the hair transplant is certainly warranted.


A doctor must evaluate the type of hair transplant that is required, the amount of grafts that should be done in order to give a natural look and if there is any need of taking any precautions to ensure the success of the hair transplant. It is a crucial part of the process since it is the foundation of the whole procedure to follow.

Pre-Operative Care

The surgeon provides patients with a set of instruction as to what should and should not be done prior to the surgery. You might be given some medications to use. Certain life style changes such as calling it quits on smoking and drinking is also important, at least for a certain amount of time.

The Extraction

Different methods such as Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are generally used. The previous, also known as Strip method is based on strip of hair being cut from the donor area which is usually the back on the head. In some cases, it can be the side as well. In FUE, hair are sort of punched out which leaves minimum, almost no scarring.

Selection of the donor sites is based on their ability to hold fort against Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which causes hair loss both in men and women. The procedure takes place under local anesthesia.

In case of strip method being employed, the follicles are cut into groups of four to six. In FUE, the extraction is done in a manner that the groups are acquired by default.

The Transplant

To put the follicles in place, small cuts are made with the help of a scalpel or specific needles. The small groups of follicles are placed in these cuts. Based on the density of the transplant and the number of grafts, a session can take anywhere from four to eight hours.

 Post-Operative Effects

Recovery takes a few days and patient is required to follow doctor’s instructions. Once all is said and done, it takes about 12 to 18 months for luscious, strong hair to be back like they never were missing. For information on hair transplant, contact us at Hair Transplant Dubai clinic.
