Hair Transplant Surgery is a blessing for men struggling with significant hair thinning and baldness. The surgery allows balding men restore a thicker and fuller head of hair permanently. But one of the most notable downsides of surgical hair restoration is a prominent scar on the scalp, at the donor site. This telltale scar often deters people from opting for the procedure. But with advancements in technology and emergence of new techniques, now it is possible to have a scar free hair transplant in Dubai. Extent and types of scar varies from one technique to another. Here we will share with you different hair restoration techniques and the resulting scars.
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT):
Also known as Strip Removal Method, FUT is the traditional hair transplant method which involves cutting a linear strip of hair bearing skin from the donor area – usually the back or sides of the scalp. The skin is sutured back while the strip is dissected under a powerful microscope to separate grafts for transplantation. Cutting and stitching of skin results in a linear scar that remains there for the rest of your life. Although it is a thin, linear scar, it prevents a person from wearing short hairs.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):
This is an advanced hair transplant technique which does not require skin cutting and stitching for graft extraction. It rather involves direct graft extraction using a small punch tool. The surgeon uses this punch tool to harvest grafts one by one from the donor sites and stores them in an artificial medium such as saline solution to keep the grafts alive outside the body. After extracting required number of grafts, the surgeon moves on to the transplantation phase. The surgery does not cause any prominent linear scar; however, it does result in several pinhole scars. But these scars are so small that they can be camouflaged even with a buzz cut. Therefore, most surgeons regard this hair transplantation method as a scarless technique.
Stem Cell FUE:
But if you are really looking for a Scar Free Hair Transplant, Stem Cell FUE may be the procedure you are looking for. It is a latest advancement in traditional FUE Hair Transplant in which the surgeon uses motorized punch tool for graft extraction. Using automated tool not only helps harvest grafts quickly but extracts grafts in a way that a part of each hair follicle is left behind in the skin. This allows hair regrowth from that follicle at the donor site while the extracted part is implanted at the recipient site to grow hair there as well. This is way Stem Cell FUE not only helps avoid scarring at the donor site, but also guarantees hair regrowth at the donor site, which the older techniques Strip Removal Method and the Traditional Follicular Unit Extraction Method do not allow.
Your Surgeon’s Experience Does Matter:
Having that said, it is pertinent to mention here that the experience and surgical skills of your hair transplant surgeon also play a vital role in determining the success rate of your surgery. Getting the latest technique done by inexperienced hands would not guarantee a scar free transplant. So, be very careful when selecting the hair transplant surgeon. Make sure the physician you choose is board certifies and has at least 5 years of experience of performing the hair transplant method you are interested in.
