The Hair Transplant Information Primer – 5 Points You Should Know

  • Laxity of the scalp, what is laxity of the scalp? It means how loose or tight is the scalp skin. Hair transplant works best on loose skin.

What is donor site? The donor site is the area which donates hair follicles to the area that requires hair follicles.

Hair follicles that are not affected by DHT are reaped to be transplanted.

  • In most cases, crown hair transplant in Dubai works best for the patients who are men due to the type of hair loss. Women suffer from hair loss that affects their whole scalp. While men suffer from male pattern hair loss that results in hair loss mainly on the top of the scalp making a horseshoe pattern and the front line is normally unaffected as in the case of females.

Men that don’t have DHT resistant areas at the back of the scalp are not good candidates for a hair transplant as these are stable areas which provide donor hair in a good candidate.

  • Coarse and curly hair provide the best coverage as compared to straight hair. It gets difficult for the surgeon to perform hair transplant when the hair loss patient has straight and fine hair as it provides very less coverage.
