Worried about hair loss? Don’t lose your hair over it! Modern medicine has given both men and women incredible options for hair restoration. What plastic surgery does for the body, hair transplant does for the scalp – it enhances and alters the appearance of what you may not be satisfied with. Thinning and balding are most often associated with genetics and aging. Unfortunately, some men and women notice the thinning as early as their twenties and simply don’t like it.
The most modern form of hair transplantation is completed using the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method, and the most popular technology to do this with is NeoGraft. To begin with, a donor site is identified. This is an area of the head with the best hair growth, typically the back and the sides of the head. These locations are considered hair growth areas and are not as susceptible to pattern baldness. For that reason, most men and women have the healthiest hair to take from in those zones.
Dr. Cory Torgerson is a head and neck surgeon and a hair restoration specialist. During a complimentary consultation with him, patients will be able to find out whether they are good candidates for hair transplant. Dr. Torgerson will look at what the general hair loss pattern is as well as whether the patient has an adequate supply of donor hair. Hair restoration also needs to be done in such a way that the existing hair follicles are not damaged. Dr. Torgerson will explain the process to potential candidates and share with them how the expert team of NeoGraft technicians help with the hair transplant process. Dr. Torgerson’s choice of the most qualified technicians in the industry ensures top results for patients seeking hair transplantation.
During the actual NeoGraft procedure, the hair is harvested from the donor sites and transplanted one or two grafts at a time. Each graft can contain 1 to 4 hairs. On average, a NeoGraft session may involve the transplant of 500 to 2,500 grafts. If performed properly by qualified technicians, the success rate can be well over 95%. Once completed, the hair will grow.
With NeoGraft, the downtime is minimal, which is one of the major reasons the procedure has become so popular. You only need to take a few days off of work before returning to your regular routine. The other exceptional bonus is that there is no longer any linear scarring or invasive surgery. The FUE method harvests hair and transplants it in the most natural way possible.
In the weeks following the hair transplant, it is normal for the original hair to shed from its new location. In the months afterwards, you will see new, fresh hair growing into the place of the transplanted hair and beginning to cover the receding line you were worried about or providong thickness to those areas that were thin. In total, the hair transplant growth cycle stage can take from 9 months to 1 year. That is why it is imperative to choose an expert hair restoration specialist the first time. No one wants the time or money that they invest to be wasted on poor results. In this type of journey, only the best will do, so we encourage you to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Cory Torgerson in downtown Toronto to learn all about NeoGraft and the excellent results it can achieve for you.
