How long does it really take? That is one of the many questions a patient first asks their surgeon before they succumb to hair surgery. Well, yes this is pretty much understandable for no one will ever dare go through a series of procedure which will require them more than a day for recovery or getting back into your regular daily routine. If you hadn’t asked yet, hair transplant procedure is also knows as a hair surgery in one day, which means the whole procedure can be all done on that same day you entered your hair surgeon’s clinic.
To better understand the hair surgery in one day process, we will give you a step by step detailed explanation of how Dubai Hair Club, one of the best hair transplant clinics in Dubai,chooses to do this type of treatment. First, prior to the scheduled date of the procedure itself, the patient must have an earlier appointment with his chosen hair surgeon, preferably two to three weeks before the surgery. This step is very much important for in this appointment your surgeon will get you tested for skin allergies or other allergic reaction to certain medications or pain killers. You see, during the hair transplant procedure itself, patients are required to go under topical or oral anesthesia to get them into a state of comfort and relaxation during the whole process. During this appointment you will also be able to tell your doctor if you would rather prefer sedation or general anesthesia during the procedure. But because hair transplant procedure is not a major operative procedure, doctors usually only suggest topical or oral. After all the important matters were discussed, the next step would have to be appearing on time on the day of your schedules surgery. Please do take note to arrive as early as possible, for going under topical or oral pain killers would need a few hours before it would take its effect.
After administering the anesthesia and right after it takes its effect, the doctor will start hair transplant procedure by harvesting hair follicular units from the donor area, or the area that has the most abundant hair which is usually on the sides and the back of the head. After healthy hair have been successfully harvested, it will then be transplanted to the recipient area, which is also the part of the scalp that has started to thin out. There are two types of hair transplantation techniques and this includes the FUT or the Follicular Unit Hair Transplant and the FUE or the Follicular Unit Extract. These techniques only vary according to how the hair follicles will be extracted.
The whole procedure will usually take eight to ten hours depending on the amount of hair follicles that need to be extracted. The wider the recipient area, the more hair follicles need to be extracted. The most time that Dubai Hair Club has done the whole procedure was sixteen hours the most. But at least it still does live up to its famous name as the hair surgery in one day.
