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.
