When it comes to non-surgical hair restoration procedures, hair transplants are the most popular option in Dubai, and with good reason. Aside from being very affordable and convenient, they require much less maintenance than other methods. The technology has come a long way since the first hair transplant was performed in the 1950s, and many people are finding that they look younger than they ever imagined possible after having this procedure done. Hair transplantation isn’t right for everyone, though; here are some questions you should consider if you’re thinking about getting one in Dubai.
The key benefits of hair transplants
In a 2015 interview, Alborj hair clinic mentioned one of their most common clients was someone who wanted to restore thinning hair. This person usually seeks treatment because they’re either in their 20s and experiencing mild thinning or are in their 30s and 40s and have noticed thinning patches. Because so many patients express dissatisfaction with hair transplants, it is important that anyone seeking treatment take a few minutes to ask questions. What type of procedure are you having done? Who is performing your procedure? And how much does it cost? When asking these questions, you should specifically inquire about price ranges—in particular, do not commit to anything before receiving an estimate from your doctor/clinic/etc.
What to look out for when it comes to surgeons
As with any medical procedure, it’s important to do your research when you’re considering a hair transplant. You want to make sure that your surgeon is qualified and experienced and that they have a solid reputation. And remember: cost isn’t everything; some of the most expensive clinics aren’t necessarily going to be giving you a better service than someone less-expensive (although there are some cases where that may be true). By all means, shop around for both price and quality, but always consider factors such as years in practice and experience with hair transplants before signing on with a particular clinic or doctor.
What to expect after a hair transplant
After your procedure, you’ll be taken back to a comfortable recovery room where your medical team will ensure that you’re doing okay. You can expect some mild soreness and swelling, but if it gets uncomfortable or too painful, let us know. Most patients are able to go home within a few hours of their procedure. When going home after your hair transplant procedure, keep in mind that you may experience some temporary bruising on your scalp. This usually subsides within 1–2 weeks after surgery. We recommend taking it easy for a couple days after surgery; just get out of bed when necessary, avoid strenuous activity, and drink plenty of water.

How long does a hair transplant procedure take?
What’s more, there are a few different types of hair transplants available. The procedure can take between 4 and 8 hours (or sometimes longer) depending on how much hair you want transplanted. While it seems like a long process, getting your hair back is worth it! It’s also important to know that you shouldn’t attempt to cut or style your hair while healing from a transplant. Your new hairs need some time to ‘settle in’ before anything drastic is done with them. During that time, it may look like you still have thinning patches; don’t worry—your new hairs will grow back in soon enough!
Where do most people get their hair transplanted?
With over 120 clinics and a population of 2 million, it’s no surprise that Dubai is an excellent spot to get a hair transplant. It’s also easy to travel in and out of, making it possible to plan an extended stay while you recover. Of course, not everyone wants (or can afford) such a long trip. That’s why many people are choosing Alborj Hair Clinic instead: they can have their procedure done locally by experienced surgeons who are specialists in hair transplants, then enjoy plenty of rest during their recovery. And if you’re looking for even more options in Middle East countries? Bahrain and Doha offer other great cities where you can find excellent clinics at great rates.
