Hair is one of the most important parts of one’s appearance. It is a natural process for men to lose their hair and a significant percentage tends to lose them by the age of fifty. The hair loss is caused by a hereditary condition known as androgenic alopecia, otherwise referred to as male pattern baldness.
To counter this problem, the most useful option is to get surgical hair restoration. There are different options available in this regard. People at times are not sure about which option to choose. All hair transplant options have their merits and one must understand before deciding which one to be brought to use. We shall look briefly into the three most sought after methods of hair transplant in Dubai to decide.
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
This particular procedure is also known as the strip method transplant. A strip of scalp is removed from the donor region in order to acquire hair follicles to be transplanted. The follicles are separated carefully under a microscope. The area from which the strip is removed is sutured.
Incisions are made with specialized needles in the recipient area so that the follicles can be grafted into them. The finer follicles are used for the purpose of building the hairline while thicker ones are used for volume building. The grafting technique used is commonly known as micro grafting technique.
The procedure is least costly in the modern options. The results are quite reasonable and around two thousand grafts can be transplanted in a single session. Recovery takes time and there is some tightness in the scalp for a while. A linear scar is also left in the donor area which can be easily covered with normal length hair.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
This is a relatively novel idea which beings to use a pneumatic punch to collect individual follicles from the donor area that are ready to be transplanted upon collection. This allows more grafts in a single session than FUT and the results are also better. FUE also uses the micro grafting technique to graft the follicles.
The treatment costs a touch more than the strip method but also offers better overall results with a more natural appearance. The downtime is significantly less as well. Very small pinhole scars are caused as a result. The follicles collected are also finer than most of the traditional options.
Stem Cell FUE
This is the state of the art hair transplantation technique which uses the same principle as FUE except a mechanized device collects the follicles, adding more speed to the process. Around 4500 follicles can be done in a single session. The follicles are extremely fine and the results are quite amazing with almost a 100% success rate.
The treatment while being the costliest of all, has by far the best results and also the least amount of recovery time needed. About half of the hair in the donor area can regrow which makes it even more attractive. The pinhole scars left from the follicles’ collection are almost invisible to the naked eye. The best part is that more than 50% of the donor follicles regrow hair.
Which one to choose & where to get a hair transplant with assured results?
All three of the procedures are excellent in their own right. It comes down to the eventual budget you have in mind and how many grafts you want to get done. It is also important to see how much recovery time you have available.
