Questions You Should Consider When You Visit a Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic

What Type of Hair Transplant Is The Most Suitable For You?

Deciding if you want to get a hair transplant is a big decision. If you are considering the procedure, there are a few factors to consider when you visit the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic.

To understand what type of hair transplant is the most suitable for you and what kind of results to expect, your current pattern and degree of hair loss is one of the most important factors. Since everyone’s head shape and size is unique, it is important to match the level and shape of the hairline to your features. Your hair density, hair styling preferences, and shape of your face and head are all factors that will be accounted for when determining your suitability for a hair transplant.


The Goal To Achieve A Natural Look

An important question to consider prior to a hair transplant is how big of an area will be transplanted in one session. Typically, a maximum of around half of your existing donor follicles can be transplanted at a time. The goal is to achieve a natural look with a balanced distribution of hair between the area covered and the transplanted hair. Therefore, for greater density, a smaller area usually has to be covered. Similarly, if there is a bigger area to cover with the same number of grafts, there will be less density. At the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, we understand that there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to aesthetics, so we will individualize your plan to fit your current conditions and future goals.

Another factor to consider is that there are some differences between men and women when it comes to the appropriate type of hair transplant. Women typically lose hair over a large area but tend to retain more hair in the hairline region. There are usually not enough donor hair follicles to thicken the hair all over the scalp. Therefore, the hair transplant plan tends to depend more on the preferred hairstyle than it does with men.

What To Expect From The Results?

For men who have experienced significant hair loss and are already almost bald, it is important to inquire about their suitability with a physician. Usually men who have lost the most hair have the fewest donor follicles to transplant. As a result, the transplant typically will focus on the front and top of the scalp, leaving a balder area in the crown, or will cover a bigger area but with less density.

To enable your physician to plan the best possible hair transplant for you and provide realistic expectations of the results, it is important to articulate how important certain areas of your head are to you and what density you are hoping to achieve. Asking questions about what to expect from the results is also important to avoid disappointment following the procedure. Bring in old photos of yourself to help your physician create a natural-looking hairline during the restoration.

At the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, Dr.Torgerson uses advanced photo-imaging techniques, which allow prospective clients to preview what they will look like following their transplant. This can help you make an informed decision because you will know what to expect.
