Hair Transplant Surgery

A hair transplant is the most suitable option for all individuals who are facing baldness problems.
If you want to restore natural hair growth, you can choose between FUE, FUT and
Robotic hair transplant techniques. Slight hair enhancement is also possible
through the Scalp Micropigmentation technique.

What is a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which hair follicles are extracted from one part of the head known as the “donor site” and implanted into the balding area of the head known as the “recipient site.” It is considered an effective technique to treat male and female pattern baldness. The donor site is mainly the area that is resistant to baldness and has a significant amount of donor hair e.g. back or sides of the head. You can use a hair transplant procedure to restore your scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, and even beard hair. There are two different ways of extracting the donor’s hair. One is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) also known as strip harvesting and the other is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Both of these techniques can help you restore your natural hair growth permanently.

Hair Transplant before and after

The results of hair transplants are impressive. You not only get natural-looking hair back but also live without the fear of losing them in the future. Since donor grafts are obtained from baldness-resistant areas, they do not fall off even under the influence of Dihydrotestosterone. It normally takes about 3 to 4 months for the transplanted hair to start growing and about 8 months to one year to reach theirfull length. You can trim, cut, and style transplanted hair according to your own choice.

Hair Transplant Candidates

A hair transplant is not for everybody. You are an ideal candidate for a hair transplant if you;

  • Have a healthy donor area with an adequate hair supply for transplantation.
  • Suffer from pattern baldness or hair thinning.
  • Lost hair due to any incident like burn or injury.
  • Do not have any serious diseases like hemophilia or uncontrolled diabetes
  • Are not allergic to anesthesia.

In addition to this, if the skin on your scalp is lax, you should not undergo a hair transplant because lax scalp skin is not suitable for the procedure. A hair transplant is still possible in other cases which will be discussed with Dr. Loonen during a consultation.

Hair Transplant Techniques

Following are some of the commonly used hair transplant techniques.

FUT Hair Transplant

FUT strip hair transplant is one of the available options for surgical hair restoration for both males and females. It is best for those who are suffering from permanent hair loss, pattern baldness, or hair thinning. The procedure involves removing a linear strip of hair-bearing skin from the baldness-resistant areas of the scalp to harvest donor’s hair. The strip is then dissected carefully under a powerful microscope to obtain individual grafts, which are then transplanted into the bald or thinning areas of the scalp.

FUE Hair Transplant Dubai

FUE hair transplant is one of the most sought-after hair transplantation techniques nowadays, because of its minimally invasive nature. Unlike the traditional strip method of hair transplant, FUE does not cause linear scarring at the donor area, thus making your hair transplant a natural and concealed process. FUE technique removes the hair follicles directly from the donor site using a specially designed tool and implants them into the balding or thinning areas.

Hybrid Hair Transplant

Hair transplant has now become a commonly known hair loss treatment due to increased awareness. Different hair transplant techniques can be combined , for example a combination of FUE and FUT techniques used to restore hair growth and cure pattern baldness. However, hair transplant techniques are constantly evolving with time due to advanced research and modifications.

Robotic Hair Transplant

Dr. Martain Loonen is the only surgeon in the Middle East region trained on the Artas IX hair transplant robot.

The ARTAS robotic hair transplant method begins by employing 3D technology to help you tailor and plan your hairline style. The best hair follicles for transplantation are then identified and specified by using a high-definition stereoscopic vision system, robotic arm, and ARTAS Artificial Intelligence algorithms. These follicles are then harvested with robotic precision and speed, preserving the natural appearance of your donor area and avoiding linear scarring.
