What you need to know about Hair Transplant in Egypt

Also known as Hair Restoration or Hair Transplantation - the surgical process of moving hair follicles from one part of the body, rich in hair (known as a donor site) and embedding them at the recipient site (the bald area).

It is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under local anesthetic only and is most commonly used to treat male baldness but the technique can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair and to fill in scars. The procedure usually lasts between 4 and 8 hours, depending on the number of grafts.

MyMediTravel offers 3 Medical Centers in Egypt, many of which offer Hair Transplant procedures - see below for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Hair Transplant can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the doctor.

What's the success rate like and are there any side effects?

When performed properly by an experienced doctor, hair transplant surgeries are extremely successful, with success rates around 95%. When patient reviews talk of side effects, a common term is Shock Loss, this is where the patient can experience temporary hair thinning, but generally, only 5% of patients will experience any issues post-op.


How does a Hair Transplant work?

The two most common techniques used are the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):

1. FUT, also referred to as FUSS (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery), involves the removal of a strip of skin from the back of the head containing lots of hair follicles, which is stitched up and hidden by the surrounding hair. Then the strip of follicles is divided into 500-2,000 tiny grafts containing just a few hairs. These are then embedded across the bald area of the head.

2. FUE does not require a strip of skin to be removed, instead the hair follicles are individually removed from the donor site and positioned across the bald area in tiny slits created by a scalpel or needle. 

 


About Egypt

Egypt has some incredible beaches, wildlife, cuisine and weather and no doubt that Ancient Egypt has long been considered one of the most important and interesting civilisations in history. From the Great Pyramids of Giza to the Valley of the Kings, take a step back in time and learn about incredible ancient civilisations, cruise down the River Nile and get lost in a maze of markets. Spend time exploring some of the most famous temples, marvel at the mighty Sphinx and discover the traditional Nubian culture.

The great thing about combining a holiday with cosmetic surgery in Egypt is that both can be achieved for the price it would cost for just the surgery in most developed countries. Many clinics are based in the capital, Cairo but you will also find private hospitals in Heliopolis, Zamalek, Maadi and Gizeh, 11 of which are JCI-accredited. Medical tourists mostly travel from other Arabic speaking countries and from across Africa, with Hair Transplant procedures being especially popular.
