Hair transplantation uses your living hair follicles to transfer volume right where you need it. Instead of temporary products, expensive hair systems, or medications, surgical hair restoration is the natural way to regain a full head of hair.
You may recall the old-fashioned surgical “hair plug” results that lacked precision and didn’t pass close inspection.
Without advanced technology, those results were unpredictable and unnatural-looking. The hair growth industry built on medicated shampoo, drugs, and “remedies” has exploded, but our patients want a one-time, permanent restoration of natural hair.
FUE hair transplant may be best for you if:
- You’re finished with hats, hairpieces, or camouflage
- You prefer the drug-free way to grow hair
- You want to invest in long-term hair restoration
- You’re ready to dramatically transform your appearance and enjoy the style and hairline that you once had
- Your body positivity and self-esteem are closely tied to how you look

Kelowna Hair Transplant: FUE Technology
Follicular unit excision (FUE) is the evolution of hair transplantation. This method is the most minimally invasive, efficient way to deliver nearly scarless results.
Each THTC client receives personalized planning with SmartGraft or NeoGraft FUE systems. “Smart” devices extract follicles precisely without unnecessary scalp trauma or noticeable scars. Your graft sites will be smaller than 1 mm, so even short hair can easily conceal them. This precision method also helps preserve the health and vitality of grafts, so not a single hair is wasted.
And the procedure is so comfortable for patients that they often remark how easy and relaxing the day is!
While the hair transplant team works on your hair, you can scroll on your phone or even sleep.
Thanks to the efficiency of our process, most full FUE restorations take just 1 day, and you will be able to return to your hotel immediately when your hair transplant is finished.
Preparing for FUE Hair Transplant
Before your procedure begins, we must shave an area on your scalp where follicles grow that are resistant to DHT (dihydrotestosterone, the hormone responsible for androgenic alopecia). Donor grafts are removed in tiny sections of a few hairs from the back of the scalp.
If you wear your hair short, we recommend a pre-haircut to help blend in your donor area while it grows back in.
Hair transplant recovery time is roughly 7 to 10 days. You can expect moderate swelling and scab formation during the first week, resolving in the second week.
Recovery after FUE is straightforward and relatively fast, but you’ll need to plan for a few temporary accommodations such as pausing your gym membership and avoiding swimming. Your surgeon will explain all that you can do to ensure the optimal outcomes from your hair transplant.
Hair transplant results can be enjoyed for decades – even a lifetime! Your patience will be critical, however. New growth follows natural hair cycles and takes about 3 months to show. By 12 months, full thickness appears.
Your permanent hair transplant is a rewarding way to invest in yourself. Ditch the ongoing expense and disappointment of temporary cover-ups and start planning your future with a full youthful head of hair.
