What You Should Know Before a Hair Transplant

Getting a hair transplant is not a small decision. A lot of planning and preparation goes into it. So, we have compiled a list of the 5 most important things you need to keep in mind before a hair transplant.

These five things include:

  1. The Surgeon’s Expertise
  2. The Transplant Technique
  3. Recovery Period Duration
  4. Follow-Up Sessions
  5. The Transplant Cost

Now, let’s discuss each of the factors mentioned above in detail.

  • The Surgeon’s Expertise

The first most crucial aspect of a hair transplant is the level of the surgeon’s expertise. The most common mistake people make is going to a doctor just because he/she is famous. Only because everyone knows their name doesn’t mean they know how they operate. Remember that a renowned hair transplant surgeon doesn’t necessarily have to be the right surgeon for you.

You can determine how competent a surgeon is by the way he answers your questions during the initial consultation. So, prepare a list of questions you want to ask him/her and see how he/she satisfies your queries. An expert hair transplant surgeon will make sure the patient is comfortable with them. They will also take a complete medical history from the patient. Moreover, they will guide the patient about available options. A good hair transplant surgeon doesn’t recommend a hair transplant right away unless it is the only possible solution.

  • The Transplant Technique

The next essential aspect to consider before a hair transplant in Dubai is the technique used for transplant. Different doctors/clinics commonly use two hair transplantation techniques. These techniques are mentioned below:

  • Follicular Unit Transplant or FUT
  • Follicular Unit Excision or FUE

Both techniques are FDA-approved, which means they are safe and yield successful results. However, every person has a different type of loss type, which means the transplant technique also differs. The decision is in the surgeon’s hands, who considers different factors before finalizing a technique.

Keep in mind that the FUT technique leaves a long and linear scar at the donor site. But this also lets the surgeon extract more healthy hair grafts than the FUE technique. On the other hand, in FUE, no visible scars are left, but it yields lesser hair follicles for transplant. So, if someone has a large bald patch, they shouldn’t undergo an FUE hair transplant.

  • Recovery Period Duration

Sometimes patients don’t ask about the duration of the recovery period during the consultation. As a result, they don’t take enough days off work and end up stranded. It is better to ask about such details during the initial consultation session so you can plan accordingly.

Usually, after a FUT hair transplant, the patient needs more rest since the sutures need healing. So, patients must take at least 2 weeks off of work before undergoing a FUT hair transplant. On the other hand, if a patient undergoes an FUE hair transplant, the downtime is less as it doesn’t involve any stitches.

  • Follow-Up Sessions

Although a hair transplant in Dubai gives permanent results, you may require follow-up sessions. Hair loss is progressive in most cases. It means that if the hair transplant surgeons use all available hair grafts in a single transplant, there will be none left for follow-ups. More often than not, the patient will need a second session after some time. So, it is advised to keep the hairline as natural-looking as possible. Otherwise, you will end up with only the transplanted hair in the middle of the scalp while the rest becomes bald.

  • The Transplant Cost

Before finalizing a hair transplant, patients must consider other hair restoration methods. If nothing else works, only then they should undergo a hair transplant. Since a hair transplant is not a cheap option, it should be the last option on anyone’s list. The hair transplant cost in Dubai depends on different factors. Some of these factors are mentioned below:

  • The surgeon’s expertise
  • The clinic’s location
  • The type of technique
  • The size of the transplant area
  • The number of sessions required
  • The type of tools and equipment used for the transplant

These factors play a vital role in determining the final cost for a hair transplant in Dubai.
