Important Considerations before Undergoing a Hair Transplant in Abu Dhabi


Hair loss is a broader term that encompasses different hair related issues including hair thinning, receding hairline, and baldness. Regardless of the extent of hair loss, one thing is common among the sufferers that it not only affects their physical appearance but also takes a toll on their emotional state. There is a long list of culprits contributing to hair loss in men and women, from genetics and hormonal imbalance to chemical treatments, poor diet, stress, anxiety, and tight hairstyles.

There are numerous treatments available to counter hair shedding issues. A mild hair loss condition can be treated with medications such as Minoxidil and Finasteride. But for significant hair loss, resulting from androgenic miniaturization of hair follicles, hair transplant surgery is the most suitable option. Opting for surgical hair restoration is an important turn point in an individual’s life as it allows him/her to restore a youthful appearance with a fuller head of hair. But there are certain factors that you must consider as you plan to undergo hair transplant surgery.

Here are important considerations before undergoing a hair transplant in Abu Dhabi.

Determine your eligibility for Hair transplant

The very first thing that you need to do is determine if you are eligible for surgical hair restoration or not. There are numerous factors that are considered when determining if you are a suitable candidate for hair transplant surgery or not. These include your gender, age, type and extent of hair loss, hair loss pattern, and your ultimate goal. A certified, licensed surgeon will evaluate you based on these criteria to confirm your candidacy. He will also examine your scalp and hair loss extent to determine which hair transplantation method will be suitable for you. Once the specialist has confirmed your eligibility, you can safely undergo the procedure.

Choose the right hair transplant surgeon in Abu Dhabi

Not every surgeon offering hair transplantation is highly skilled and licensed. Nowadays many unqualified practitioners are also offering the surgery. The easiest way to separate fake surgeons from the real ones is to check their costs. If someone is offering hair transplant at unusually low cost, beware of him or her. This can be a trap as well. Since a hair transplant is a highly skilled and complicated procedure it is important that you find a licensed, certified, and experienced surgeon with at least 5-7 years of experience. You can assess the surgical skills of your prospective surgeon by simply looking at his previous work. Ask him to show you before and after pictures of the people he has treated over the last two years.

Your budget

As stated above, surgical hair restoration is a specialized procedure that requires the skills of a highly experienced surgeon and gives you hair that lasts for the rest of your life, don’t expect it to come cheap. It is an expensive procedure, but obviously not out of reach of an average earner. There are several cost determining factors and you can wisely play with them to make it an affordable procedure, well within your budget limit. The cost primarily depends on the number of hair grafts to be transplanted, and then the method used for harvesting the grafts. The traditional strip method costs less than the modern FUE method.

Hair Transplant clinics in Abu Dhabi and surgeons also offer lucrative promotional packages on major events such as New Year, Christmas, National Day, and Eid festivals. So plan your surgery accordingly to cut the cost. Some providers also offer smart financing plans to effectively minimize the budget issue and bring the patients much closer to surgical hair restoration.
