Hair transplant in Abu Dhabi is an effective way to gain the lost hair and confidence. There are two procedures of hair transplant that are commonly used to treat hair loss. Let’s discuss the two procedures,
FUE vs. FUT
FUT is Follicular Unit Transplant, this an older technique and involves removing the skin with healthy hair follicles from the back of the scalp. The removed linear strip of skin is divided and dissected according to the grafts requirement in the benefactor region. It leaves a linear scar at the donor area which can be covered by hair. Special aftercare is also needed for healing.
The recent treatment, FUE – Follicular Unit Extraction, is done by making small incisions in the transplanted area. The hair follicles are directly extracted from the scalp and placed into the incisions. The procedure takes long as it is tough and tiring. But the scar is not as big as that produced by the FUT; small white scars are formed due to the process which is not visible.
Both procedures of hair transplant in Abu Dhabi will get you permanent hair. However, FUE process reduces scarring and involves less pain.
The transplanted hair follicles fall out after two weeks but that’s natural and part of the process, so no need to worry about it. New hair begins to grow in the area, and full growth is seen in about a year.

Take Your Time to Decide
A good clinic will not pressurize you to get the hair transplant until you are ready. The surgeon at the clinic will guide you and describe the whole process with pictures of before and after surgery results of the patients they have treated. A scalp examination with blood tests is also done to know the cause of the hair loss. It is recommended to take your time, and once you know your hair fall has reached a stable stage, and you are comfortable with getting the hair transplant then opt for it. Don’t rush for it without proper research.
Choose the surgeon who is professional and has the expertise of performing the hair transplant. Don’t be afraid of asking the doctor about the qualifications and experience. Find the surgeon who you think is best at performing the art of hair transplant. Also, don’t choose the surgeon on the basis of the price they take for the procedure. Also, don’t settle for anything less than what you expect from the results, as there are many clinics and surgeons out there that promise the result but lack the experience to deliver the results.
