Best Way to Prepare for a Hair Transplant


Tens of thousands of people have had very successful hair transplants over time. One of the reasons for this success is through knowing how to prepare for an upcoming hair transplant in Dubai. This is because a hair transplant treatment is not like walking into a salon for a manicure or a haircut; it is more than that and needs ample preparation.

But before the date of the hair transplant in Dubai is set, you should have some time with your doctor to talk more about the causes of your hair loss. This is because there might be an underlying problem, which would not be solved by having a hair transplant treatment.

After it has been established that a hair transplant surgery in Dubai will effectively treat your hair loss problem, then it is time to start preparing for the procedure.

Know What you are Getting into:

It is important to talk about the hair transplant in Dubai procedure with the specialist beforehand so that you are not disappointed or shocked afterwards. For instance he/she should explain to you about shock loss of hair after hair transplant, scabbing, how to take care of your hair after the scalp has healed, if the procedure is painful, medications, timeline for hair growth etc.

Allow the Doctor to Check your background:

While still in the consultation stage, the doctor will have to check your medical background, hair loss family history and your lifestyle. All this is to determine if you are a suitable candidate for a successful hair loss treatment.

Stop Smoking:

If you are a smoker – any form of smoker – it doesn’t matter if it is shisha or cigarettes, you should quit a week or two before your surgery. This is because smoking will interfere with the healing of your scalp, and might take longer than expected.

Stay away from Alcoholic Substances:

In order to have a successful hair transplant, it is advisable you stay away from any alcoholic substances, may it be your mouth wash or something else. This is because the alcohol can decrease the effectiveness of the anaesthesia as well as interfering with your post operation medications.

Discuss your Medication:

Discussing the post operation medication with your doctor is imperative so as to avoid any problems or setbacks that might occur. This should also be done in order to avoid any negative interactions with medications that you are already taking.

Have Realistic Expectations:

Before going in for the hair transplant in Dubai, it is great to do sufficient research as well as asking your doctor questions about the procedure and the outcome. The excitement of finally treating your hair loss can lead you to have some unrealistic and over-the-top expectations, which might just end up disappointing you. For instance you should know that the hair does not grow immediately after the transplant and that it falls off first before growing.

Be Patient:

As they say, patience is a virtue and so is hair transplant in Dubai. After having a hair transplant surgery, it is important for you to hold your horses down and be patient. This is because the process takes up to nine months to a year before you see the desired results. All this and not to mention that your native hair will first undergo shock loss due to trauma exerted on the scalp when implanting.

Having all this in mind will help you walk into that surgery room with confidence and ready for the outcome. Just remember, it always looks worse when it is about to look its best.
