Sideburn Hair Transplant

Sideburn Hair Transplant - Abu Dhabi

A sideburn hair transplant is a surgical procedure that involves transferring hair follicles from one part of the body, typically the back of the scalp or the side of the head, to the sideburn area. This procedure is performed to enhance the appearance of sideburns by increasing their density or filling in areas with thin or no hair.

The sideburn hair transplant procedure is similar to other types of hair transplant surgeries, such as a traditional hairline or eyebrow transplant. It typically involves the following steps:

  1. 1.  Donor area selection: The surgeon identifies the donor area, which is usually the back of the scalp or the side of the head. These areas are chosen because they typically have healthy hair follicles that are resistant to balding.
  2. 2.  Hair follicle extraction: The surgeon extracts individual hair follicles from the donor area using either follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplantation (FUT) techniques. FUE involves extracting hair follicles one by one using a small punch tool, while FUT involves removing a strip of scalp from the donor area and dissecting it into individual follicular units.
  3. 3.  Hair follicle preparation: The extracted hair follicles are then prepared for transplantation. This involves cleaning and sorting them into smaller units, called grafts, which contain one to three hair follicles each.
  4. 4.  Incision creation: Tiny incisions are made in the sideburn area where the hair follicles will be implanted. The surgeon carefully considers the angle, direction, and density of hair growth to achieve a natural-looking result.
  5. 5.  Graft placement: The prepared hair grafts are placed into the incisions made in the sideburn area. The surgeon ensures that the grafts are positioned properly to mimic the natural growth pattern of sideburn hair.
  6. 6.  Post-operative care: After the procedure, the patient is provided with instructions for post-operative care, which may include guidelines on how to clean and protect the newly transplanted sideburn hair. The transplanted hair follicles will go through a recovery process and will typically start to grow within a few months.

It's important to consult with a qualified and experienced hair transplant surgeon who can assess your specific situation and determine if a sideburn hair transplant is suitable for you. They can also provide you with information about the expected results, potential risks or complications, and the cost associated with the procedure.
