Hair Transplants

Learn about hair transplants

For millennia around the world, hair has always held a place of significance socially and culturally. Historically, no matter where you look, there is importance associated to hair, whether it be in rituals of how and when to cut hair, or in the value given to one’s beauty based on hair or based a style of hair that symbolized a belonging to a tribe or group. Baldness, on the other hand, was mainly associated to old age, unattractiveness, shame and even infertility. Although none of these signs may be true, hair loss can certainly lower one’s confidence and cause feeling of low self-esteem.

Statistics show that at least 70% of men and upward of 50% of women will lose their hair in varying degrees sometime in their lifetime. The causes of hair loss are many, but can mostly be attributed to three factors: genetics, hormonal changes and age.

With all of us losing 50-100 hairs a day, hair re-growth is usually happening simultaneously. However, stress, poor eating habits and nutrition, medications and illness can cause a more excessive shedding of existing hairs. When hair loss occurs under these circumstances, it usually can be considered temporary. A change in the factor causing the hair loss most often means hair growth will resume afterwards. Permanent hair loss becomes the issue at hand when the existing hair follicles become thinner and weaker. The most common type of permanent hair loss in men is Male Pattern Baldness, also medically known as Androgenic Alopecia. This is hair loss caused by genes, age and hormones.

What is FUE?

Follicular Unit Extraction explained

Although there are shampoos and medications that can help strengthen the weakening follicles, the best methods of hair restoration is through hair transplant. At our Toronto Center, we offer the method for our patients. We love this revolutionary method of hair transplant because it offers many benefits that former hair transplantation techniques could not.

First of all, FUE methods involve Follicular Unit Extraction, the removal of existing follicles of hair from the areas of the head where hair growth is permanent, such as the back or sides. These areas are also referred to as the donor site. The removed follicles of hair, known as grafts, can contain 1-4 strands of hair. The grafts are transplanted into the recipient site one at a time. The grafts are inserted strategically in a way that fills in the balding areas, improves the density of hair in that area and aesthetically will improve the overall look of the recipient site and hairline. The average procedure requires anywhere from 500-2000 grafts and can be done in a day, within 4-8 hours, depending on the number of grafts being implanted.

FUE Procedure

No pain & no scarring

In terms of pain, local anesthesia is administered to alleviate any discomfort during the FUE procedure. The actual procedure also leaves no long or visible scarring which is a wonderful bonus and change from surgeries of the past. Furthermore, Hair transplant with Neograft has a very high success rate and does not carry with it any major risks, long term side effects or inhibiting recovery time. Most patients are able to continue on with their usual routine within 3-4 days. Even by day 1, post procedure, most patients feel like themselves and can carry on normal activities at home; they just choose to minimize their schedule while the redness subsides and post-treatment healing takes place.

Hair growth following hair restoration can be patience provoking, but is well worth the wait. By 6-9months, the transplanted hair will be growing nicely and can be styled as you wish. Neograft FUE hair transplant offers a great solution for anyone seeking to turn the tide on their thinning and balding hair, so if you would like to learn more information, we welcome you to set up a consultation at our Toronto office!
