3 Things About FUE Hair Transplant Surgery

We have shared information about the FUE hair transplant that anyone trying to find a permanent hair loss solution must know. Proper research is essential before undergoing any cosmetic procedure. Hair transplants are a big decision, so don’t jump to conclusions before thoroughly researching every detail.

How is the procedure performed?

Although there are 2 techniques for performing a hair transplant, FUE hair transplant surgery is preferred by patients and surgeons alike.

During the procedure, the surgeon removes healthy hair follicles from the donor site. Usually, the donor site is the backside of the scalp.

The surgeon uses a medical tool to extract healthy hair follicles one by one. The harvested hair follicles are then kept aside while the surgeon prepares to transplant them. Each hair follicle is transplanted individually to the bald spots or thinning hair regions.

The FUE hair transplant procedure is minimally invasive as compared to the FUT technique. Moreover, local anesthesia is also used while extracting and implanting hair. The entire procedure takes about 8-9 hours to complete. With the help of anesthesia, patients don’t feel any pain during the procedure. However, mild discomfort after the surgery is normal.

While there is no linear scarring like FUT, there is still some scarring. Instead of a long and linear scar at the scalp’s back, the FUE technique leaves tiny scars all over the scalp. These scars are caused by the micro-incisions made for transplanting the follicles.

Patients must carefully choose a surgeon or a facility offering FUE hair transplant surgery Dubai. One of the significant factors influencing the success of a hair transplant is the surgeon’s expertise. So, find the one who is well-reputed and knows what he/she is doing.

Ask around and research online about the best hair transplant surgeons nearby before making any decisions.

What are the pros of the FUE hair transplant?

FUE hair transplant technique has several advantages over other techniques, especially FUT. Some advantages are given below:

  • There is no visible scarring as a result of the FUE hair transplant.
  • It is a short procedure that quickly completes within 8-9 hours.
  • The recovery period is relatively short, i.e., 1 week, compared to other methods.
  • After the transplant, the transplanted hair looks natural and denser.
  • It can be performed under local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia.
  • Within a few days, multiple sessions can be arranged.
  • It doesn’t require a team of 10 to perform an FUE hair transplant. Only a surgeon and 1-2 assistants can efficiently perform the procedure.

These are just some of the benefits of the FUE technique. Several other methods are also used for hair transplants.

What are the cons of the FUE hair transplant?

No cosmetic procedure is without side-effects, risks, and complications. Although the FUE hair transplantation technique is FDA-approved, which means it is a safe procedure. However, still, risks are associated with the procedure. Some of the complications are mentioned below:

  • The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, so there won’t be any pain during the treatment. However, patients may experience mild discomfort after the treatment. It usually goes away on its own, but the doctor also prescribes some painkillers if the condition persists.
  • The FUE hair transplant surgery Dubai is not a cheap treatment. Most clinics charge per graft, and the cost can reach up to $10000-$12000.
  • It is a time-consuming procedure as each hair follicle is extracted individually.
  • In some cases, more than 1000 follicles are transplanted. In order to do that, the patient’s head is shaved.
  • After the procedure, the patient’s skull may become numb and lose sensation.
  • Some patients also experience itching, swelling, inflammation, or infection of the hair follicles (known as folliculitis).
  • In severe cases, bleeding may not stop, and shock loss of transplanted hair may occur.
