What Will You Look Like After a Hair Transplant?

  • 4 min. read

Your hair isn't just strands on your head—it symbolizes your identity and confidence. Understandably, hair loss can be unsettling. Fortunately, medical advancements offer effective solutions like hair transplantation. Naturally, you might wonder about your appearance post-procedure.

Hair transplantation involves transferring hair follicles from a 'donor site' to a balding or thinning 'recipient site'. While it seems simple, the procedure's intricacies, from extraction to follicle placement, demand expertise and a deep understanding of hair growth.

Over the years, transplant techniques have evolved immensely. Forget the days of conspicuous "hair plugs"; now, the results are impressively natural. However, as you consider this journey, remember the importance of realistic expectations. Results vary depending on factors like hair type, surgeon's skill, and aftercare. Setting achievable goals prepares you for the transformative process and ensures your satisfaction.

At our clinic, we prioritize transparency and collaboration. Our mission is not merely to transplant hair but to boost your confidence. Dive deeper with us into the post-transplant journey, clarifying your anticipations post-surgery.

The Immediate Aftermath: Your First Look Post-Hair Transplant Surgery


Stepping bravely towards reclaiming your hair's vibrancy, you might be curious about what comes next. Let's uncover what awaits you immediately after the procedure.

First, the donor area, from where the hair follicles are sourced, may undergo noticeable changes. Don't be surprised to spot shorter hair or even shaved patches, contingent on the transplant method used. But here's a comforting tidbit: for those not keen on shaving their head, we offer a no-shave hair transplant option at Advanced Hair Studio. Feel free to check out our blog post to explore this option further. This phase of shorter or shaved hair is temporary, and soon, your hair will grow back naturally. A bit of redness or swelling? That's just your body signaling its healing process is underway.

Shifting focus to the transplant area, you might see tiny scabs or crusts surrounding the freshly placed hair follicles. This is your body's way of healing, and they'll typically shed naturally in a short time. A smidge of redness or subtle swelling could also emerge, but remember, these are standard healing signs that will fade.

Keep in mind, these initial visuals are your body's prompt response to the surgery. With diligent care and a touch of patience, the remarkable results you're hoping for will emerge. Rest easy, you're on a promising path!

The First Few Weeks: Embracing Patience


Navigating the initial weeks post-transplant, patience truly becomes your best ally. One phenomenon you might notice is the shedding of transplanted hairs. While it might raise an eyebrow, understand that this is a natural step, and those hairs will make their comeback.

Then there's the so-called "ugly duckling" phase. It's a time when results might seem less than ideal, perhaps even leaving you second-guessing your decision. But remember, just as the ugly duckling transformed into a graceful swan, this phase is temporary, leading you to the fuller, revitalized look you're awaiting.

Lastly, caring for those new grafts is paramount. Ensure you follow the provided instructions meticulously. From avoiding direct sunlight to gentle washing routines, each guideline is crafted to safeguard your grafts and foster optimal healing. Hold tight to that vision of restored locks; you're progressing just as expected!

The Growth Phase: Observing Your New Hair Flourish

As you venture into the growth phase, the anticipation builds. Typically, within 3 to 4 months post-procedure, you'll start to witness new hair sprouting. This is the moment you've been waiting for, as those previously barren patches begin their transformation.

You might spot subtle differences between the transplanted and surrounding hair initially. The new additions could seem finer or slightly varied in color. This contrast is perfectly normal, and over time, as everything blends, these differences become less noticeable.

Moreover, expect the texture and quality of the transplanted hair to evolve. Just like a sapling grows into a sturdy tree, your new hairs will mature, gaining strength and vitality. They'll integrate seamlessly with your existing mane, leading to a cohesive and natural look.

Stay observant and relish in these changes. Every new strand symbolizes your journey towards a fuller, rejuvenated head of hair. You're on track, and the best is yet to come!

Months 6-12: Embracing the Transformation

Navigating the 6 to 12-month mark post-transplant, this is where the magic truly unfolds. Significant growth becomes evident, with a notable increase in hair density gracing your scalp. The sparse patches you once knew? They're now becoming a distant memory.

You'll also observe a beautiful symphony of blending. The transplanted hair starts to merge harmoniously with your existing locks, creating a seamless and natural appearance. The differences that once stood out will meld into the collective, reinforcing the artistry of the procedure.

With this newfound volume and growth, you might find yourself exploring styling options. Whether it's a particular haircut or a new grooming routine, you have the creative liberty to achieve the look you've been dreaming of. Embrace this transformative phase wholeheartedly; your hair journey has reached a rewarding crescendo, and it's time to celebrate the stunning results!

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.
