Maybe you’ve tried to cover up your hair loss with a wig or concealing styles, but you want a long-term solution. A hair transplant can permanently redistribute your real, growing hair to where you need it most. In expert hands, transplantation provides natural-looking results that last. If you have permanent hair thinning or bald patches due to genetic or other factors, you could be a candidate for a hair transplant.
The process starts with an examination by your cosmetic surgeon, where you will be shown female hair transplant before and after photos. Your surgeon will spend time discussing the reasons for your hair loss and evaluating your scalp. Selecting the ideal donor sites to harvest grafts will depend on the available density and strategic plans to avoid depleting an area.
The process can be challenging
For men, hair growth is usually dense at the back of the head, but in women, the thinning is more diffused, and a larger donor area may be needed. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair replacement allows for selecting individual grafts in a randomized and widespread manner. The concentration and density of hairs can be redistributed to the top and frontal zones. Meticulous care and often more time is required to gather enough grafts for implantation.
FUE is often a preferred choice
There are two primary hair transplant types, but the leading technique today is FUE. It’s a less invasive procedure than the follicular unit transaction (FUT) strip method. The beauty of FUE is that it leaves only tiny micro-scars in the donor area which will be hidden once hair regrows. Your friends and family won’t even know you underwent hair transplant surgery unless you share. Advanced FUE devices like NeoGraft and SmartGraft have digitally assisted technology and graft preservation ability, which decrease scalp trauma, accelerate operating time, and protect valuable hair follicle units. That increases success rates to over 90%.
What will the hair transplant cost?
You might be wondering what FUE hair replacement costs in Toronto. The average patient needs between 500 and 1,500 grafts in their procedure, and the price per graft may be $4 to $6. (Prices are subject to change.) Patients who’ve had FUE generally agree that the higher fee is worth it for the natural results they receive. Fortunately, there are financing options available in Canada to make this procedure accessible.
It’s important to note that growth can take several months, and your final results may not be visible for up to a year. One of the best things about the FUE technique is that there’s virtually no limit to the number of times that this procedure can be repeated, so it can also address continual hair loss as you age.
