The purpose

Hair transplant surgery is performed to transplant hair on the area of the scalp which no longer grows hair. Multiple techniques have been used. With the advancement in technology, techniques have changed to produce natural-looking results.

The process

Usually, the surgeon numbs your scalp. Depending on which method you choose, your surgeon will either go for follicular unit extraction (FUE hair transplant) or Follicular unit transplant (FUT hair transplant). The process involves extracting hair follicular from the donor area either individually or in the form of a strip depending upon the method you choose. Then it involves careful placement of these grafts in the recipient’s area.

The time it takes

Typically a best hair transplant in Dubai will require one session of six to eight hours. If you want an immense increase in volume, it can take up to two to three sessions.
