History of hair loss is very old, and so is the history of hair restoration. Both men and women have been shedding hair since ages. Earlier they used to treat hair fall with oral and topical natural remedies. Some of the natural hair loss remedies are no doubt very effective, but they not only need time and patience to be effective but also do not offer a permanent solution. As soon as you stop these oral and topical treatments, hair loss returns. This prompted people to look for more effective and lasting techniques and they ended up finding Hair Transplant Surgery.
What is Hair transplant?
Hair Transplant is a surgical hair restoration technique that offers definite and permanent solution for thinning hair and baldness in both men and women. A hair transplant surgery does not trigger hair regrowth; rather it aims at redistributing existing balding resistant hair follicles over the entire scalp to give a fuller and thicker effect. History of hair transplantation dates back to the mid of last century, but originally it was not such a fine procedure. It has seen numerous modifications over the last 4 decades before it became able to give such fine and natural looking results.
Hair transplant techniques in Abu Dhabi:
Today, with modern techniques of hair transplant in Abu Dhabi, you get such fine and natural looking results that even your hair stylist will be unable to detect that you have had a hair transplant. Latest hair restoration techniques are:
- Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
- Stem Cell FUE
Follicular Unit Transplant:
Follicular Unit Transplant, also known as strip method harvesting, is the oldest hair restoration technique. It served as an ideal treatment for hair loss for long. Even after the introduction of modern techniques, FUT is still playing the leading role. A latest study found that Follicular Unit Transplantation is the most frequently performed method around the globe. Simple nature of the procedure, a better coverage of bald area and affordable cost are some of the features which work behind the success of FUT Hair Transplant in Abu Dhabi.
The procedure involves excising a linear strip of hair bearing skin from the back or the sides of the scalp. It is then dissected under a powerful microscope to obtain thousands of donor grafts. Once enough number of grafts has been extracted, the surgeon prepares recipient sites by making tiny holes. The grafts are then carefully placed in those holes.
Follicular Unit Extraction:
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is a modern method for extracting donor grafts. It is different from traditional strip harvesting procedure as it takes out individual hair follicles directly from the scalp. In FUE a small punch tool is used to make a tiny, circular hole in scalp which separates hair follicle from surrounding scalp tissues. Separated hair follicle is then extracted from the scalp, making a hole in the donor area. Hair transplant surgeon repeats the same procedure over and over until enough number of hair follicles is collected.
FUE Hair Transplant in Abu Dhabi generally takes 4 to 6 hours depending upon the number of hair follicles required to cover the bald area. Some hair transplant sessions span over two days when the patient has severe balding. Pinhole size holes created in the donor area due to graft harvesting are barely visible after they have completely healed. Plantation phase of FUE Hair Transplant is similar to the strip method transplant.
Stem Cell FUE:
Stem Cell FUE or Direct Automated FUE is the latest innovation in surgical hair transplantation in Abu Dhabi. As the name suggests, it is a mechanized form of Follicular Unit Extraction. As stated above, earlier graft harvesting using FUE technique was performed using manual punching where surgeon used to exert force manually to take out a hair follicle. It was a tough task for the surgeons. So scientists refined it by introducing a small automated punching device for this purpose and the technique is known as mechanical punch.
Stem Cell FUE in Abu Dhabi is the fastest donor hair harvesting procedure which allows the surgeon to harvest and implant up to 4000 grafts in a single session, as compared to 1500 to 2000 grafts of manual FUE. Plantation phase of Stem Cell FUE is no different than conventional FUE and the strip method transplant.
