Years ago, surgical hair plug methods lacked the advanced technology, precision, and artistry that we have at our fingertips today. The results were often unpredictable or looked unnatural. In the meantime, the hair growth industry has been booming, marketing medicated shampoo, pills, and hair systems. Yet we know that a one-time, permanent restoration of natural hair is what most people dream of.
Hair transplantation might be right for you if:
- you don’t wish to wear a hair piece or camouflage your scalp;
- you want drug-free hair growth;
- you’re willing to invest in a long-term solution, not a cover-up;
- you want to improve your appearance and bring back the thicker, youthful hairline you once had; or
- you’re aware that positivity and self-esteem are often closely tied to how we look.

Winnipeg Hair Transplant – FUE Technology
FUE (follicular unit excision) hair transplant is the least invasive and results-focused method of hair transplant with virtually scarless results.
Each of our clients receives custom-tailored planning with NeoGraft or SmartGraft FUE technology. Using smart devices to precisely extract follicle grafts greatly reduces discomfort and scalp trauma. This, in turn, protects delicate follicle grafts and helps reduce the patient’s recovery time. The graft harvest sites in FUE hair transplants are very small (under 1 mm). This means that once the sites have healed, even short haircuts can conceal them. FUE scars are essentially tiny dots blended with surrounding hair, so they hide well, unlike old-fashioned surgical scars.
The procedure is so comfortable for our patients that they often remark how relieved they were to find the treatment day easy and enjoyable.
FUE Hair Transplant Process
While our team works, you’ll recline on a bed and be able to watch TV on your device, listen to music, or even sleep!
Before your hair transplant begins, we need to shave a small area at the back of your scalp. That is where the follicles grow that are resistant to DHT (dihydrotestosterone), the hormone responsible for causing androgenic alopecia. We extract grafts in small groups of a few hairs, then implant them at strategic angles to mimic natural hair growth in the areas where you need them.
We recommend that people with short hairstyles have a pre-haircut to help the donor area blend in well while it is healing. The short recovery time after a hair transplant is straightforward. You will be advised to make a few temporary adjustments such as avoiding the gym, pool, and direct pressure. Many of our patients are delighted to find that they can keep their procedure discreet while they are healing.
The FUE recovery time is 7 to 10 days. Moderate swelling is expected in the early days, and scabs form through the first 7 days.
The toughest part about hair transplant recovery is usually patience. Remember, your results may last for decades – even a lifetime! But the natural growth cycle takes time, and new growth is seen at roughly 3 months. The average time to see the full growth of new hair is 1 year.
Your hair transplant could be the best investment that you ever make in yourself. Hassle-free, stylable, youthful hair to run your fingers through is worth the wait.
