How Does It Work?

During a hair transplant in Dubai, which is usually performed under local anesthesia and takes about two to three hours, the surgeon will begin the procedure by extracting healthy follicles from the back or sides of the scalp. Note: the extraction can be done in two ways. The surgeon either uses FUE or FUT. In FUE, the follicles are removed directly, whereas in FUT, a strip of skin is first removed and then follicles are collected. The surgical approach largely depends on the patient’s specific concerns and the results desired. Dr. Makkiya will then insert the removed follicles in the area that has no or less hair. At the conclusion, bandages will be placed all over the scalp and the patient will begin the recovery.

Can You See Hair Transplant Scars?

Unfortunately, yes. However, the size, location, and appearance of the scars will depend on whether or not an FUE or FUT is performed, how your body responds, and other factors. Generally speaking, FUT leaves a long linear scar at the donor site where the strip has been removed. The scar is prominent and usually lasts for a lifetime. In some patients, it even widens and stretches with the passage of time.

On the other hand, FUE results in several yet tiny, barely noticeable scars – patients usually have difficulty seeing these scars with the naked eye. All things considered, if scarring is your concern, FUE would be a better option.

Key Takeaways:

  • The surgery involves transferring follicles from the back of the scalp to the frontal region.
  • It has many benefits and drawbacks to consider.
  • When it comes to scarring, FUE is better
