How Effective are Different Hair Restoration Methods?

  • 4 min. read

Hair Restoration stimulates hair regrowth in bald or sparsely covered areas of the scalp. They work well as therapies for various hair loss conditions but do not prevent further hair loss; people could require further procedures for long-lasting outcomes. In addition to being a casual part of aging, hair loss and thinning can also be brought on by a medical ailment or trauma to the scalp. When experiencing hair loss, some people choose to get hair restoration for reconstructive or cosmetic purposes. This article examines the success rates of several hair restoration procedures and their duration and potential adverse effects.

What are the Types of Hair Restoration?

In a hair restoration treatment, hair is moved from the donor area, which is untouched by hair loss, to the bald or thinning area of the scalp. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation are the two procedures available to those who are qualified for hair transplants (FUT).

  • Transplantation of Follicular Units
  • To do FUT, a surgeon would cut tissue strips into individual follicular units after extracting them from the donor location. The follicular unit grafts are then gently inserted into the tiny wounds made in the scalp, which may cause minor scarring.

  • Hair Follicle Extraction
  • The current method of hair restoration, known as FUE hair transplant, is typically preferred by patients since it results in less noticeable scarring. Each hair follicle is taken from the patient's donor area, which is often the back of the neck, and then transported to the location of the hair transplant using a specialized microsurgical needle. Whatever procedure you pick, you'll be left with a bald head for a while because the restored hair often falls out 2 to 3 weeks following your surgery. Within a few months, you should begin to detect new growth, and most people will notice 60% of new hair regrowth within six to nine months.

Success Rate of Hair Restoration Surgery

Hair restoration surgery is a successful hair treatment for reviving hair growth after various hair loss causes. The surgeon's experience and expertise and the thickness of the patient's donor hair are two crucial factors that influence the success rate of hair restoration surgery. You may achieve a small improvement in hair fullness with hair restoration. People may choose scalp reduction procedures, tissue expansion, or skin flap surgery for more profound modifications. No proper studies provide exact success rates for hair restoration surgeries. However, several smaller studies and papers offer some details regarding the efficacy of these methods.

What Causes Male Pattern Hair Loss?

Hair restoration methods are painful hair fall treatments by any means. So, what's happening besides the bald spot? When the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a modified form of testosterone, destroys the hair follicles on the scalp, it results in male pattern baldness. As the afflicted follicles gradually shrink and stop producing hair, the diameter, length, and color of the hairs they produce get smaller, lighter, and shorter.

Men frequently maintain their hair when bald at the back and sides of their heads. It is because these follicles are typically genetically programmed to fight off DHT. You may be searching for hair restoration in addition to genetic male hair loss. Hair restoration can't reverse medical problems like androgenetic alopecia areata and alopecia Universalis, which can cause you to lose small patches or all of your hair. Additionally, certain medications, such as those prescribed for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart issues, gout, and high blood pressure, as well as going through stressful situations, can result in hair loss.

Additionally, your hairstyle may be a factor in hair loss. Therefore, while braids may be fashionable in your twenties, they might not be the best choice for your 30s, 40s, or 50s. I suppose you get the idea.

Who is the Best Candidate for Hair Restoration Surgery?


  • Men have experienced hair loss owing to male pattern baldness for more than five years.
  • Both men and women who experience burns or trauma-related hair loss.
  • Men who recognize their hair loss may continue to advance after surgery and have realistic expectations, even if they abide by prescription medication to halt this development. Some men must continue taking these drugs to save as much of their hair as possible following surgery.
  • Men and women who have been losing hair for a long time, whose pattern has stabilized, and who want to grow some more to look younger.
  • Who have undergone other cosmetic treatments like facelifts and have lost hair.

How Effective is Hair Restoration Surgery?

Most of the time, a person with a successful hair restoration surgery will have hair that looks thicker. After the surgery, however, the person can still experience hair thinning and loss, which could make their hair look unnatural. People might need several surgeries in the future for results that last longer.

People can expect the need for a "touch-up" procedure. This method can help by merging the follicles for the most natural-looking hair or filling in any spots that are not thick enough. Follow your surgeon's post-procedure instructions for the best outcomes. People may need to refrain from exercise and severe activity for a few weeks. Additionally, they might have to wait to wash their hair for a few days. Doing this will give them a better probability of having a successful hair transplant.

Possible Side Effects

Hair Restoration procedures are generally safe when done by a trained, experienced surgeon. However, some negative effects can occur even with successful hair transplants.

  • Bleeding or Infection
  • Using a tiny round surgical punch in the scalp skin is necessary for an FUE hair transplant. The professional will pluck individual follicles from the scalp to insert the donor follicles. There is a slight chance of infection or bleeding In FUE treatment.

  • Minor Scarring
  • Both the donor area and the transplant area run the risk of developing minor scars. Before deciding to have the operation, a person should discuss these risks with their surgeon. When using the FUSS technique, the surgeon typically leaves a lengthy, linear scar where a section of the scalp is removed. As new hair grows around the scar, it might blend in. However, if it widens while healing, the surrounding hair is thin, or the person wears it short in style, it might be noticeable.

    The FUE procedure may also leave minor scars in the region where the physician used the punch instrument to remove the follicles. These scars, nevertheless, might not be as noticeable as the FUSS scar.

    In some circumstances, the area around the transplanted hair may develop raised pimples. The regrowth of hair may conceal these pimples.

  • Swelling and Pain
  • Following the treatment, some people may feel pain as their skin recovers. As the skin heals, there may also be considerable swelling in the head and face. To help patients with this, their surgeon could give them painkillers.

It took me 1 Year to decide whether I wanted to go through with the hair restoration procedure using a Natural Looking Hair piece. I did a lot of research and consulted with many people who had done the procedure.

I was convinced to go ahead due to the information session / in-depth knowledge and the excellent customer service skills of Sanjay- the manager.

I did the procedure 1 month ago and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. Advanced Hair Studio provides the best quality for the Hair Pieces. The staff takes the time to understand what you are looking for as a customer. They style your hair based on your facial structure and I must truly admit that their stylists are pure Artists! My favourite stylist is Mohamad from Lebanon. He does magic with his hands and I am always thrilled with the new styles/ suggestions he provides.

I must admit that AHS is on the more expensive side if you were to consider the other competitors in Dubai. However, it is all worth every penny spent! You will not regret it.

Do not over think it. Just go ahead an do the procedure. You will evolve into a whole new person! Believe me! :-)

I started losing my hair in my mid-twenties and in spite of trying all sorts of treatments it gradually got worse and worse. By my late twenties I started cutting my hair short. Whenever I tried to grow it, it used to look a mess and was impossible to style because of my receding and thinning. I was looking at doing a hair transplant for a while, but I kept delaying it in hope that there was some alternative.

When I was in my mid-thirties I first came across AHS. I was a bit skeptical but I thought I’d find out what they could do. I was expecting a sales pitch but what I learned about hair loss and hair restoration from them was presented in a straightforward and logical way, without lots of medical terminology. They take time to explain the root cause of the problem and explore all the different treatments.

I decided to go ahead with the treatment and as it turns out, having AHS fix my hair was one of the best decisions I ever made. I still cannot believe how good my results are. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier rather than wasting so much time (and hair!). I would urge anyone who is thinking of doing something to check them out.
