If you’re concerned about your hair loss, you’re not alone. One in four men over age 50 experience some level of baldness and just as many women struggle with thinning hair or hair loss. But even if you think you don’t qualify for a hair transplant, or that the procedure will be too expensive or invasive, there’s good news: hair transplants are often an affordable and effective treatment option that could give you the full head of hair you desire without changing who you are as a person.
The Benefits of Natural Looking Hair
In the past, hair transplants were reserved for male-pattern baldness sufferers. But we now know that hair loss can happen at any age and in varying degrees. And if you have significant hair loss from any cause, you may be a good candidate for hair transplant surgery. A doctor will take small plugs of your healthy hair from the back or sides of your head and transplant them onto your receding hairline or thinning crown. With this procedure, you get rid of the problem area and make it look like you always had full, natural looking hair. Many people are surprised to hear that they can have their own natural looking locks restored with a quick and relatively painless procedure like this one.
What To Expect During the Procedure
A hair transplant procedure is generally performed in two stages. Stage one is the extraction process, during which the surgeon will use clippers, or a surgical punch, to extract hair follicles from the back of your head. Next comes stage two, when the extracted follicles are implanted into an area of thinning hair on your head. The transplanted hair grows naturally and blends with existing strands. Alborj Hair Clinic offers its clients free consultations, so you can discuss your treatment options with our experienced team of surgeons before making any decisions.

How long does it take?
Most hair transplants are done in about six hours, with patients spending about three days recovering in the hospital. Patients can typically return to work within two weeks. There are two different types of transplants: one is used on those who have lost hair due to an illness like alopecia; the other is used on those who want fuller and more youthful-looking hair. Alborj Hair Clinic offers both types of transplants and can also recommend post-operative treatments such as scalp massage, exfoliation, and head massage techniques that will speed healing time and maximize results. The clinic performs over 1,000 procedures per year using the latest medical techniques and cutting edge technology from reputable manufacturers.
Most hair transplant procedures last around 6 hours with minimal discomfort or side effects (pain usually subsides by the second day). After surgery you may feel tired but it’s important to get plenty of rest so your body recovers properly. Most people can return to their regular routine after 2 weeks however some may take longer depending on their level of activity.
Know your hair loss options before you decide on hair transplant surgery
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is an option that preserves natural hair growth. If you have sideburns, a receding hairline or want the ability to comb your hair in any direction, this might be the best option for you. Scalp reduction surgery is another popular procedure. The downside is that it will take more time and resources as well as produce less natural results. With that in mind, there are two main options available at Alborj Hair Clinic which can help people who are experiencing moderate to severe male pattern baldness combat their balding condition with great success: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Scalp Reduction Surgery.
