What is Hair Transplant?

If you are suffering from androgenetic alopecia, you will most likely lose hair from the front area and crown of your scalp. The hair on the back or sides of the scalp is resistant to balding. In hair transplant, hair follicles are extracted from the donor site and implanted on the recipient’s site. There are multiple types of hair transplant. The top most popular types of hair transplant in Sharjah include Stem Cell FUE, FUE hair transplant, and FUT hair transplant.

General procedure of hair transplant

  • Initially, the consultation between the hair transplant surgeon and the doctor takes place to determine the suitability and final outcome of the procedure.
  • Depending upon the procedure, local or general anesthesia is administered to the patients.
  • Afterward, hair follicles are extracted from the donor site in the form of a strip or an individual grafts depending upon the technique used.
  • Tiny incisions are made on the recipient’s area, taking careful measures in regards to depth and angle to ensure natural-looking results.
  • Grafts are implanted into the incisions.
  • A recovery period of the hair transplant in Sharjah varies depending upon the technique used and results show its complete potential in about one year.

When is the right time to go for Hair Transplant?


Timing is a critical aspect of hair transplant. You might lose hair due to aging in your fifties or you might be experiencing pre mature hair fall in your early teens and twenties. It’s not a good idea to go for a hair transplant before the age of thirty. It is so because your hair loss develops a pattern as you grow older. If you decide to undergo hair transplant when your hair loss is still progressive, it might result in a patchy appearance afterward and you might need another transplant in the future. It is important to consult with a trustworthy surgeon to determine whether it is the right time to go under a hair transplant or not.

Rate of hair fall

Another factor is the rate at which your hair falls out. If your hair loss is progressive, hair transplant is not the ideal choice for you. Now, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do anything about your hair unless your hair falls stops completely. You can opt for other non-surgical options for hair growth.

Temporary or permanent hair fall

Another factor to consider before going for a hair transplant is determining whether your hair loss is temporary or permanent. You must give your scalp at least a year after hair fall to determine whether your hair will grow back or not. Miniaturized hair follicles can be strengthened but if your hair follicles are completely dead, hair transplant is the only cure.

Type of hair fall

The way your hair falls out greatly determines the type of treatment you go for. If you don’t have sufficient donor hair, then hair transplant is not the ideal cure for you. If you have donor hair that is resistant to balding, hair transplant in Sharjah can do wonders for your looks.
