With world-class health facilities, proficient doctors and globally accredited hospitals, medical tourists are drawn to Dubai for a multiplicity of procedures, including treatment for hair loss and infertility.
Recently, the UAE announced an amended visa policy with new opportunities for medical tourists. A move that is part of Dubai’s overall strategy in rising to the top of the medical tourism industry. The goal is to attract up to 500,000 people per year for medical tourism by 2020.
“Our target is to attract 500,000 people only for medical tourism by 2020,” stated Essa Al Maidoor, Director General of the Dubai Health Authority. “The medical tourism strategy has been designed over two phases. The first one has been chalked out until 2016 and the second until 2020.”
In 2012, an estimated 107,500 medical tourists visited Dubai for treatment at 23 hospitals, five surgical facilities and 1,181 clinics. The Dubai Health Authority reports the figure is growing at a compound annual growth rate of 15 percent.

In men, hair loss is largely genetic, however in women, it's a slew of other factors that contribute to devastating circumstances of hair loss. Low iron and vitamin D levels, hormone imbalances, thyroid problems, and occasionally autoimmune diseases such as lupus can all be causes of hair loss.
Topical or injectable medications have been shown to accelerate regrowth of hair for certain conditions, however hair transplantation for men and women is a permanent form of hair replacement that uses dermatologic surgery to move some existing scalp hair to bald or thinning parts. Hair transplant surgery can benefit women who have thinning hair and those who have lost some hair from burns or other scarring injuries to the scalp, eyebrows, or eyelashes.
Hair loss can be disturbing, devastating, and discouraging. Hair loss surgeons in Dubai can diagnose the cause of hair loss, gather a detailed medical history, and get you back to a world filled with self-assurance and delight.
