Hair transplant : How is it performed ?

Hair transplant realized in Egypt has different types :

FUE technique

The FUE (Folicular Unit Extraction) technique is the most widely known technique because it has many advantages. Offered for 30 years now, it is often highlighted as the fineness of the used instruments limits the traces of sampling and incision.
During the extraction of follicular units, the units that can contain 1 to 5 hairs are extracted. Throughout the grafting of these, the specialist must then carry out a sorting, resulting in a loss (of approximately 30%). According to the experts, the FUE graft has recently gained an overestimated reputation.
One of the disadvantages of this technique is that when a patient has undergone too many FUE procedures, it often becomes impossible to perform new ones with a FUT or additional FUE.

FUT technique

Although it is still less known, the FUT grafting technique has evolved well in recent years. It is now a very efficient technique in terms of the number of hairs that can be extracted and reimplanted in a single operation. Also known as "strip grafting", FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) allows for the removal of approximately 7500 follicular units.
The grafts are extracted directly from a strip of scalp and unlike FUE, the grafted roots have a 100% graft success rate. When the strip is extracted properly, the risk of scarring is greatly reduced.
The FUT technique is recommended for all cases of baldness as it allows a greater number of follicular units to be removed and implanted while reducing the traces of the operation. Moreover, the fine scar that is left always allows hair regrowth.

DHI technique

The DHI method of hair implants is an advanced and non-invasive form of FUE, it means the extraction of hair follicles one by one. However, the DHI technique differs from all others in the fact that the entire hair transplant process is carried out manually by an expert doctor from the extraction of each follicle to the implantation of each of these grafts.
Practised by hand, using a high-precision DHI hair injector, this method allows the practitioner to control step by step the depth, angle and direction of implantation of each hair follicle. This hair grafting technique is therefore performed without any incision, on both the donor and the recipient part, leaving no scars and producing a perfectly natural and dense result.

Aftercare and recovery

After your hair transplant in Egypt, the surgeon will prescribe you painkillers to alleviate the pain.

  • It is normal to have a sensitive scalp after the surgery.
  • You will wear bandages over your scalp for approximately 2 days after the intervention.
  • Oedema and skin tightness can appear and disappear with time.
  • Resuming your professional activities will be after several weeks and with the consent of the surgeon.
  • Sports activities must be avoided after the intervention.
  • Sun exposure must be avoided for one year.
  • It is normal to notice that your transplanted hair fall out after 3 weeks, but they will regrowth within a few months.
  • Moreover, it is important to wait 2 days before washing your hair.
  • You must sleep with your head elevated.
  • You should avoid applying cosmetic products to your hair for one month.
  • Following your surgeon’s recommendations is necessary.

Hair transplant results

The hair grows back from the third month after your hair transplant in Egypt and the result is visible from the sixth month to be definitive after a year. There are no visible scars even with very short hair.

What are the advantages of a hair transplant ?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that involves moving hair follicles from one part of the body (usually the back or sides of the scalp) to a bald or thinning area. This procedure can provide several benefits for individuals experiencing hair loss or thinning hair. Here are some of the benefits of a hair transplant :

  1. Natural-looking results : One of the primary benefits of a hair transplant is that it can produce natural-looking results. Modern techniques, such as follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE), allow surgeons to transplant individual hair follicles, mimicking the natural growth pattern of hair.
  2. Permanent solution : Unlike temporary hair loss treatments such as medications or topical solutions, a hair transplant offers a permanent solution to hair loss.
  3. Improved self-esteem and confidence : By restoring a fuller head of hair, a hair transplant can improve self-image and confidence levels, leading to a better quality of life.
  4. Natural hair growth : The transplanted hair follicles continue to grow naturally, just like the rest of the hair on your scalp. This means that you can wash, cut, style, and even dye your transplanted hair.
  5. Minimal downtime : While recovery times may vary depending on the type of procedure and individual healing process, many patients can return to their normal activities within a few days to a week after a hair transplant. Compared to other surgical procedures, such as plastic surgery, the downtime associated with a hair transplant is relatively minimal.
  6. Customized treatment : Hair transplant procedures can be tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of each patient. Surgeons work closely with patients to design a treatment plan that achieves the desired hairline, density, and overall aesthetic outcome.
  7. No ongoing maintenance required : Once the transplanted hair follicles have taken root and begun to grow, no ongoing maintenance or special care is required. Patients can enjoy their new hair without the need for daily medications or treatments.
  8. Natural hairline restoration : A skilled surgeon can recreate a natural hairline that complements the patient's facial features and age. This results in a more youthful and balanced appearance.

It is important to note that while a hair transplant can provide significant benefits for many individuals, it may not be suitable for everyone. Candidates should undergo a thorough evaluation by a qualified hair transplant surgeon to determine whether they are good candidates for the procedure and to discuss their expectations and goals. Additionally, it is essential to have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure and understand that individual results may vary.

At what age can one opt for a hair transplant ?

The ideal age for a hair transplant can vary depending on individual factors such as the extent of hair loss, the stability of the hair loss pattern, and the overall health of the patient. However, there are some general guidelines regarding the appropriate age for considering a hair transplant :

  1. Age of majority : In most cases, individuals should be adults before considering a hair transplant. This typically means being at least 18 years old, as this is the age at which individuals are legally considered adults and can make informed decisions about their healthcare.
  2. Stable hair loss pattern : Hair loss patterns tend to stabilize by the late 20s or early 30s in most individuals. It is essential for the hair loss pattern to be relatively stable before undergoing a hair transplant to ensure that the transplanted hair maintains its appearance over time.
  3. Mature hair loss pattern : Younger individuals may experience rapid or unpredictable hair loss patterns, making it challenging to predict the long-term results of a hair transplant. Waiting until the hair loss pattern has matured can help ensure a more successful outcome.
  4. Good general health : Candidates for a hair transplant should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure's outcomes. Certain medical conditions or lifestyle factors may affect candidacy for surgery, so it is essential to discuss any health concerns with a qualified hair transplant surgeon.
  5. Emotional maturity : Hair loss can have a significant impact on self-esteem and body image, so it is crucial for individuals considering a hair transplant to be emotionally mature and prepared for the potential psychological effects of the procedure.

While there isn't a specific age cutoff for hair transplant, it is essential for individuals to undergo a thorough evaluation by a qualified hair transplant surgeon to determine their candidacy for the procedure. Surgeons will assess factors such as the extent of hair loss, the quality of the donor hair, and the patient's overall health and goals to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.

Additionally, it is important for individuals considering a hair transplant to have realistic expectations about the procedure's outcomes and understand that individual results may vary. A hair transplant can provide significant improvements in hair density and appearance, but it may not fully restore a full head of hair or completely halt the progression of hair loss.
