All You Need To Know About A Hair Transplant In Dubai
A hair transplant was first discovered in 1950 by a Japanese Cosmetic Surgeon when he experimented with taking a strip of hair from the donor region of the head and implanting it into the balding regions.
This experiment proved that implanting hair follicles in balding areas would naturally reap hair and fill up those areas with density and volume.
This gave birth to the phenomenal procedure known as a Hair transplant which is tried by thousands the world over each year and has evolved and advanced into multiple techniques. Conventionally, a hair transplant was performed using the strip removal or FUT method, which involved excising an entire strip of hair from the back of the scalp, breaking it down into individual follicular units and then implanting them into the balding regions.
A hair transplant in Dubai has become excessively popular and requested by the citizens of the emirates and international visitors who come to shop and vamp up their look.
This method is still performed today and produces successful results however it causes a large scar on the back of the head, is invasive, causes bleeding and has a long recovery period. The more advanced technique is the follicular unit extraction or FUE technique, in which the doctor makes a small circular excision around the hair follicle containing the hair; once enough hair follicles have been extracted, the doctor restores them into the balding regions using a punch instrument.
Both these methods are great however, the FUE is the best as is causes no linear scarring, is minimally invasive, causes minimal bleeding and has a quick recovery period of just seven days as opposed to the FUT that takes 14 days for the patient to heal.
As the FUE is performed with a higher level of skill, expertise and precision, with more time and effort it is hence more expensive than the FUT but those longing to see hair on their head again do not really care about the additional costs- especially those who wear their hair very short prefer the FUE over the FUT.
Athletes who wish to resume to strenuous activity shortly after surgery also prefer the FUE. However, those who do not care much about scarring or the long recovery period may choose the FUT in order to save costs.
The cost make up of the FUE involves the amount of hair grafts needed for the transplant- this varies from patient to patient depending upon their goals and extent of balding. A man can measure his level of baldness using the Norwood scale and a woman can see where she stands in terms of baldness using the Ludwig scale as to gauge how much hair grafts they would require.
