Answering Common Questions About FUE in Toronto

Hair Transplants & FUE


Researching any cosmetic procedure can prove to be quite overwhelming. With the plethora of information available on the Internet today, it can be difficult to understand what is accurate and reliable. When it comes to hair transplants and follicular unit extraction (FUE) in Toronto, there are a few common questions that arise. As we tackle these questions for you, it should clear up any misunderstanding about the procedure.

What exactly is a FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE is one of the primary methods used to harvest follicular units in a hair transplant. It involves transplanting follicles from the healthy part of the scalp to the thinning or balding area.


How Does a FUE Transplant Work?

During the procedure, a special device is used to harvest healthy hair follicles from the donor sites on the scalp. These areas are typically at the back and sides of the head. The harvested follicles, also known as grafts, are then transplanted into the area of the scalp that is thinning or balding.

At the recipient site, the grafts must be placed at the right angle and in the appropriate density to re-establish the natural look of your hairline. For the best aesthetic outcome of the procedure, it is extremely important to choose a reputable clinic specializing in hair transplants, particularly using FUE.

When it comes to FUE in Toronto, the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic is well known as one of the leading facilities for natural and reliable results.

How Successful is a FUE Hair Transplant?

The results of FUE transplants are long-lasting with a permanency rate of over 90%. Following the transplant, patients typically notice some shedding, which is completely normal and expected. After the hair sheds, it will grow back noticeably stronger and healthier.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

Although it will vary on an individual basis, on average the procedure takes around 6 to 8 hours.

What is the Recovery Period Like?

The FUE method allows patients to be back to their regular routine within a few days. Since there are no stitches or sutures, the recovery period is relatively short and smooth. Instructions and aftercare product packages are provided at our clinic to make your recovery as comfortable as possible.

We Can Treat Almost All Types of Hair Loss

It usually takes anywhere from 6 to 9 months to start seeing your new head of hair. The transplanted hair from the donor site will have the same characteristics as it did prior to your hair loss.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for a Toronto FUE?

The perfect candidate is usually one who is experiencing male pattern baldness. People who are experiencing temporary hair loss brought on by things such as stress or hormonal changes are generally not ideal candidates. A transplant is also typically not a good idea for people who are already almost bald. To have a successful procedure, the patient must have sufficient hair in the donor areas to extract follicles from.

The best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate is to schedule a private consultation at our clinic. During a one-on-one discussion with Dr. Cory Torgerson, you will be able to get answers to all your questions and determine if you are a good candidate to benefit from a hair transplant.
