Hair transplant in Dubai

Undergoing a cosmetic procedure like a hair transplant doesn’t ensure its success. Several factors contribute to making any surgery successful. A patient’s role is as vital in surgery as a surgeon’s role. Both parties need to collaborate honestly to get the best results from a hair transplant. Although hair transplant in Dubai has a very high success rate, it can still deliver poor results. The poor results of hair transplantation can be prevented if patients do thorough research about the procedure and surgeons.

Causes and Prevention of a Poor Hair Transplant

If a hair transplant goes wrong, a hair restoration surgery is carried out. It can improve the results to some extent but it is nowhere near a successful hair transplant. Moreover, patients with unsuccessful hair transplantation are always unsatisfied with the restoration surgery results.

We have identified the 5 most common causes of a poor hair transplant that include:

  1. Surgeon’s Inexperience
  2. Insufficient Post-Operative Care
  3. Not Being an Ideal Candidate
  4. Dishonesty with the Surgeon
  5. Misunderstanding

Now, let’s discuss each reason in detail.


  • Surgeon’s Inexperience


One of the most important aspects of a successful hair transplant is the surgeon’s expertise. The hair transplantation procedure needs careful execution and precision. So, without an expert surgeon, the chances of a successful surgery reduce significantly.

When a surgeon does not have enough experience, he/she is bound to make mistakes. Sometimes, these mistakes can be life-threatening. For instance, bleeding is a temporary risk associated with a hair transplant. But an inexperienced surgeon can perform a poor transplant, and as a result, the patient may bleed to death.

If you want your procedure to go smoothly, choose an expert professional. Otherwise, you will end up being an amateur’s experimental subject. Moreover, even if a poor hair transplant doesn’t prove to be life-threatening, it can still cause many problems. And, we end up wasting our time and money on a futile attempt to grow hair.


  • Insufficient Post-Operative Care


After a hair transplant in Dubai, the patient is sent home with a post-operative kit and a list of care instructions. We already mentioned that besides a surgeon, the patient has the most crucial role in making a hair transplant successful. So, sticking to the post-op care instructions will help in getting the desired results.

Sometimes, when patients go back home, they don’t follow the guidelines given to them when leaving the clinic. They don’t even take the prescribed medicines on time. As a result, they end up prolonging their recovery period and impacting the results negatively. Moreover, due to their negligence, they may end up again at a hospital due to severe complications and medical problems.

To avoid such drastic situations, patients must follow the surgeon’s instructions and take the prescribed medications only.


  • Not Being an Ideal Candidate


Hair transplant is an ideal solution for most people suffering from excessive hair loss leading to baldness. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s perfect for everyone.

Determining the candidacy of a patient for a hair transplant is an essential step before proceeding. Nobody can be directly taken for a transplant without a medical examination and declaring them fit for a hair transplant. An expert professional never declares a patient fit for a hair transplant without a medical examination. However, an inexperienced surgeon may do so.

The patient must be cooperative with the clinic’s staff and the surgeon to avoid any mishaps during and after surgery. Moreover, picking an experienced surgeon is essential for this. He/she will not let them go under the knife before ruling out every possibility of them not being the ideal candidate.


  • Dishonesty with the Surgeon


Sometimes, patients want to get a hair transplant, and they are willing to even lie for it. During the consultation session, the surgeon asks about the patient’s previous medical history, allergies, and other relevant details. So, if a patient is desperate to get a hair transplant, he/she will not refrain from lying to the doctor. As a result, the doctor may end up declaring them fit for a transplant when, in fact, they are not.

If such patients undergo hair transplantation, they are bound to get a poor hair transplant. Moreover, they may even put their lives and health in danger. So, discuss the entire issue with your doctor honestly and don’t keep essential details hidden. This information directly impacts the results of the surgery. Therefore, to avoid any severe consequences, be completely honest with the surgeon.


  • Misunderstanding


Misunderstanding can occur at any stage of hair transplantation. For instance, the patient may be honest during the consultation session, but the surgeon may misunderstand something. Similarly, the doctor may recommend something for post-op care, but the patient may not follow it explicitly.

Since hair transplantation is a collaborative effort of the surgeon and the patient, it won’t work unless both parties do. So, the patient must try to be as open and explicit to the doctor about the details as possible.

Moreover, the doctor must understand the patient’s previous medical history and counsel them accordingly. They should make themselves understood by the patients. Only with the help of proper communication, they can achieve the best possible results.

So, patients and surgeons must be clear in what they say and make their concerns and expectations understood.
