One of the most common problems male and female are facing today is hair loss, be it thinning up or going bald. Hair transplant can be considered a lifetime solution for this problem, it can help bring back what looks like a full head of hair using diffrent techniques to achieve great results.

What is Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant is a surgical procedure that is performed in a doctor's office. It helps grow back the hair in a thin or bald area by filling it with hair follicles from a donor area. Hair transplants have been done since the 1950s, but techniques have changed a lot in recent years. Hair transplant procedure uses different techniques which are decided on depending on each patient’s needs and case.


Hair Transplant Techniques

  • Direct hair implantation (DHI)

Direct hair implantation is a modification of the FUE technique and follows a similar procedure; the surgeon removes hair follicles from the donor area and implants them into the balding areas using "Choi Pens"This procedure is a painless procedure and leaves no scars. DHI results look 100% natural because only healthy hair follicles which are genetically designed to grow for lifetime are chosen and implanted.

  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

Follicular unit extraction is a revolutionary technique that improved hair harvesting making it less invasive.  It uses blades made of sapphire that ensure that incisions made on the scalp are as minute as possible and are less likely to scab afterwards. During an FUE procedure, the back of the head needs to be shaved; the individual hairs grafts are removed 1 by 1, then placed into tiny dot-like cuts made in the scalp.

Sapphire FUE technique can achieve natural-looking results. The special Characteristics of Sapphire Gemstones that accelerate cell regeneration and healing process, makes FUE technique the most suitable for people with sensitive scalps and large bald or area.

  • Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) 

Follucular unit transplation, or Strip Surgery, is considered as the first technology that allowed for completely natural-looking results of hair restoration to be achieved on a consistent basis. This technique uses stereoscopic dissecting microscopes to dissect the donor strip of hair bearing tissue and help the doctor to easily identify and harvest individual follicular units as they grow naturally on the donor area. 

The procedure takes up to 8 hours or more to be completed. It doesn't require shaving the head, but it leaves a tiny visible scar in the donor area that can be easily concealed with moderately short hair styles.


Hair Restoration procedures

Hairline transplant surgery 

Hairline restoration is the most important type of hair transplant surgeries that can be performed nowadays. If the hairline is not aesthetically pleasing the entire procedure can be considered a failure even if the rest of the recipient areas show satisfactory results. While there are various types of hair transplant techniques, FUE technique is the most suitable for hairline restoration.

Crown Hair Transplants

The crown region of the scalp is considered the most “challenging” region for hair transplant intervention. On one hand, there is not enough hair that can be harvested over one or many surgeries to address the crown area sufficiently. On the other hand, the angles and directions of hair growth vary widely in a relatively small area. Hencefore, when a doctor understands how hair in the crown region flows, the overall crown hair transplant approach can be easier to perform.  FUE technique is the most suitable for crown hair restoration.

Facial Hair Transplants

Facial hair transplantation became extremely popular in recent years. Among female patients, eyebrow hair transplant is the most popular. Whereases, beard, moustache, and sideburn hair transplant are the most popular among male patients, who seek either to thicken their existing facial hair or to construct a completely new beard, moustache, or sideburns from scratch. 

The process for facial hair transplantation is simple. Hair follicles are taken from the donor area and transplanted to the desired facial areas. Generally, DHI or FUE techniques can be used to achieve great results.


What is more importance in hair transplantation?

The hair transplant technique is only one small part of hair transplant surgery. Successful hair restoration surgeries depend on proper hairline design, recipient site creation, practitioners’ skills and expertise, proper handling and surgical refinement of individual hair grafts, and many other critical steps to ensure both graft survival and a natural aesthetic.


Expectations and Recovery

After the surgery, the scalp may be very tender, there may be some pain, so it’s inevitable to take pain medications, antibiotics, or an anti-inflammatory drug for several days.  

On average, a hair transplantation surgery may take about 8 hours to complete.  Results take between 6 to 18 months to fully show. Some surgeons prescribe the hair-growing drug and other special hair care shampoo to improve hair growth after transplantation.


Who can have a hair transplant?

A hair transplant is suitable for people with permanent baldness or severe hair loss. After a diagnosis of the state of the hair loss type and of the donor area, the doctor decides on which technique to use to transplant the hair, be it follicular unit extraction (FUE), Direct hair implantation (DHI) or others.

It is important to know that it is only during the preparatory consultation with the doctor that the latter will be able to inform you more precisely about the price of the hair transplant.
