Hair Transplants in Canada – A Comprehensive Guide for the International Visitor – Part 3 – How it works

CANADA IS AN EXCELLENT PLACE TO GET YOUR HAIR TRANSPLANT

If you’ve decided that you’d like to get your hair transplant done in Canada then you’ve made a great choice. However you still might have questions about how the procedure works exactly. The aim of this part of our guide is to explain how a hair transplant procedure works and answer some common questions that new patients have.

FUE hair transplants explained

Dr Jones specializes in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplants. He has performed this type of procedure countless times on patients from all walks of life from his surgery just outside Toronto.

FUE is one of the two main types of hair transplant that performed today, with the other being Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). The key difference between the two procedures is how the donor hair (that hair that’s taken from the back and sides of your head) is extracted.

In an FUE procedure the hair follicles are removed individually, whereas with FUT, a strip of hair is taken from the donor area and then the follicles are removed from there. This is where FUT hair transplants are often referred to as “strip procedures”.

FUE hair transplants provide some unique benefits. These include –

  • No visible scarring
  • Less healing time in donor area
  • No restriction on strenuous activity
  • Possible to harvest hair from other parts of the body

Is the procedure painful?

Generally an FUE procedure is not painful. The scalp is numbed using anaesthetic before hair is extracted or transplanted so patients do not feel pain. In fact, the only part of the procedure that could be considered painful is the administering of the anaesthetic itself, although Dr Jones makes sure that any nervous patients are put at ease.

How long does it take?

The amount of time that an FUE procedure takes will depend on the number of grafts you need. Grafts are simply the number of follicles that need to be extracted and transplanted for you to achieve your desired results. Of course, the more grafts required, the longer the procedure will take. In any case, the average FUE procedure takes approximately 8 hours.

What results can you expect to achieve?

Anyone who’s considering a hair transplant is naturally eager to know what can of results they can expect to achieve. The answer to this question is dependent on a number of factors. These include –

  • The extent of your balding – One of the biggest determining factors when it comes to the results you can expect to achieve from your hair transplant is the severity of your balding. Not all guys bald in the same way or at the same rate. For some guys, their hair thins very gradually over a number of years while others have very severe balding that occurs very quickly.
  • The quality of your donor hair – Generally this isn’t too much of an issue since most guys have enough donor hair on the back and sides of their head to provide the coverage they need. However, a big advantage of using the FUE procedure is that it enables hair to be taken from other areas, such as the sideburns.
  • The skill of the surgeon – The skill and experience of the surgeon is another factor that affects the results that can be achieved. You should always seek out a surgeon that has a lot of experience performing the type of procedure you want to get.
