A hair transplant is one of the most wondrous discoveries of the 20th century. In its most basic definition, a hair transplant is taking hair from the back of the scalp where it is abundant in nature and implanting it into the balding regions of the head.
There are two techniques of a hair transplant, one is the conventional strip removal method but it is invasive, causes sufficient bleeding and leaves a scar on the head. The more evolved and sophisticated technique is the Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE. The FUE method is the most popular hair transplant technique in Dubai.
The FUE technique is my personal favorite as it I cannot bear the sight of blood and would rather not have an instrument invade my body. Therefore, here is a list of the top 5 reasons I love the Follicular Unit Extraction method:
The follicular unit extraction method involves using a very tiny instrument to make a circular incision around the hair follicle containing the hair instead of cutting an entire strip of flesh from the head like in the strip method; hence, the FUE technique is minimally invasive and causes just a dot of bleeding in the follicle area that is extracted.
Since there is no large incision involved in the FUE method, there is no need for stitching and no scarring on the head. The FUE method extracts hair follicles directly from the head to implant them into the balding regions.
Short Recovery Period
Since there has been no large incision on the head the recovery period for the FUE hair transplant is only 7 to 8 days as opposed to the strip removal method that takes up to two weeks for the person. This can be annoying, frustrating as your head is bandaged for such a long time, and you cannot indulge in or resume to daily activities in time.
Since there has been no excision of flesh from the head; this is no need for stitching. This enables quicker recovery and evades the chance of infection from sutures.
Since each graft is transplanted individually, the direction of the hair growth is implanted to produce the best and most natural looking results. There is no chance of a “pluggy” look in fact the most aesthetically pleasing of results can be achieved with the Follicular Unit Extraction method. No one is able to guess if it is a hair transplant of natural hair with this method.

"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.".
