Hair loss is a problem faced by people all over the globe. Both genders are affected by the problem though its appearance is a lot more pronounced in men. They suffer to what is known as male pattern baldness caused by presence of DHT. To counter hair loss, there are a number of home remedies. They can help delay the inevitable but cannot reverse or even stop hair shedding completely.
Hair transplant surgeries offer the best way to get rid of permanent hair loss once and forever. Get the surgery done today and enjoy strong locks on the scalp for the rest of life as transplanted hair do not undergo further hair loss after the procedure. Much like the rest of the world, people in Dubai are also seeking surgical hair restoration procedures. Many people visit Dubai to get the best hair transplant treatments done in the region.
Let’s dig in a little further and learn more about the latest hair transplant options for hair loss patients available in UAE in 2017 and onward.
- Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
Commonly referred to as strip method transplant, it works with removal of a thin strip of scalp to be dissected into individual follicles. The strip is taken out of the back and sides of the head, the donor regions. The area is carefully sutured afterwards. The individual follicles are then placed into the recipient area in specially made incisions.
Micro grafting techniques are used for this purpose. Finer follicles are placed in the frontal region of the scalp to allow a natural look whereas thicker ones are placed in the midsection to build volume. The follicles take about one year to grow to full length and you can enjoy any hairstyle you like from there onwards.
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
The main difference between FUT and FUE is the collection process of the follicles. A pneumatic punch is used for collecting individual grafts directly from the scalp without cutting or stitching the scalp skin. Generally there is no need to store the follicles in saline water, and this allows better quality of the follicles.
The size of the graft typically is 1mm which allows a pretty natural look. The results in comparison with strip method transplantation are also better. Small pinhole scars are left in the donor region which can be covered with normal length hair. Usually around 2500 grafts can be transplanted in a single session.
- Stem Cell FUE
Stem Cell FUE works on the same principle as FUE though the main difference is that the tool used for graft harvesting is mechanized. This allows a number of advantages including up to 4500 grafts per session, finer follicles with 0.5mm to 0.7mm thickness and very fine scars that are almost invisible especially with full length hair.
Interestingly, the results are almost 100% successful and the appearance of the transplant is very natural. Unlike other transplant options, about half of the donor hair also grow out. The treatment is amazing in all respects.
