What Is It, and Why Is It Good News for You?
FUE Hair Transplant Toronto
How does FUE transplant work? This type of hair transplant surgery is gaining traction for men and women suffering hair loss. It’s a step ahead of previous, standard techniques, because it doesn’t require a strip of the scalp to be excised and then dissected into grafts. Though the FUT (strip harvesting) method is still used today, the long scar it creates can be a deterrent.
Instead, FUE utilizes a punch device with a small rotary extractor that removes follicles along with supportive tissue in the form of little grafts, or “units”. They’re removed from dense growth areas at the back and sides of the scalp. Strands are carefully selected with plenty left behind, so the donor area won’t show missing follicles.
Too Small They Can Go Unnoticed!
Hair follicle units usually measure less than 1 mm, so they leave only tiny holes that close quickly and don’t require stitches.
All of our hair transplants are done with either SmartGraft or NeoGraft FUE hair transplant systems. These are the industry’s leading digital technology solutions for efficient, safe, and fast hair transplant procedures. Each of these methods has a high “take rate”, which means that you can expect significant, transformative results from your procedure.
Even better, thousands of small follicle extractions leave only pale dots on the scalp, which blend effortlessly with the surrounding hairs. Worry about noticeable scarring is gone when skilled Toronto FUE surgeons carry out this meticulous procedure.
The fast recovery is another bonus. Without a deep incision to recover from, patients undergoing FUE in Toronto typically get back to work and regular life in just days, instead of weeks.
How Long Does It Take to Recover from FUE in Toronto?
Your hair transplant procedure may be the most rewarding investment in yourself that you ever make. The long-term results can improve not only your appearance, but also help you regain confidence when you look in the mirror. Imagine knowing that your presentation matches your vitality at work and romantically. The process from start to finish requires patience, even though the procedure itself and the initial healing period are quick.
If you prepare for a realistic timeline of several months’ growth, you’ll have a more satisfying experience.
Minor swelling is expected for the first 24 to 48 hours after your FUE hair transplant procedure. You’ll be advised how to safely wash and handle your scalp in the early days and be comfortable keeping your head and shoulders elevated to reduce swelling.
You can rest at home right after your procedure. And there are no limitations on travelling, because you won’t need general anaesthetic during hair transplant surgery. You may take an over-the-counter pain reliever as directed if needed.
Days 2 to 7
Sometimes patients experience ingrown hairs or minor folliculitis. Loprox can help reduce redness, itching, and irritation to get you comfortably through that period.
After 1 week, you can wash your hair regularly with shampoo and gently towel it dry. You’ll be able to bath, swim, and return to most tasks once the incisions are completely healed around 7 to 10 days after your hair transplant.
After 2 Weeks
FUE Hair Transplant FAQ
What Should You Not Do After Hair Transplant?
You’ll likely be asked to hold off on exercise that increases blood pressure for about 10 days. Likewise, avoid tight hats or contact and rubbing of your scalp.
How Can I Speed Up Healing After a Hair Transplant?
We believe that you look your best when you feel your best. Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet can assist with healing. Your balanced, hair-healthy diet should include antioxidants from foods like blueberries, peppers, fresh herbs, cherries, and tomatoes. Staying hydrated with plenty of water each day will also help you feel great and heal quickly.
Using finasteride/Propecia often helps your hold on to your native hairs, the ones that haven’t fallen out yet. We’ll be pleased to share options for keeping the hair you have and establishing healthy new strands after FUE.
The First Step Of Your Journey Begins With A Conversation
What is an FUE Hair Transplant?
The letters FUE stand for Follicular Unit Extraction
If you want to replace the areas on your scalp that have experienced hair loss, what are you extracting? The answer is easy. The FUE method means that follicles of hair are removed from your own head where the hair growth is thicker, then transplanted to the site where hair is needed. It’s exceedingly successful!
Dr. Cory Torgerson is pleased to offer this state-of-the-art hair transplant technology at his downtown Toronto private surgery centre. It is a natural addition to the facial cosmetic surgery procedures that are already offered to his clients. *Neograft is the only FUE system that has been approved in both Canada and the U.S.*
The FUE Hair Transplant Procedure
Tiny incisions are made in the areas of the scalp where the hair is the most dense. In men, this is typically the back or sides of the head. Units of hair follicles (also known as grafts) are removed and then transplanted to the areas of the scalp where hair is thin, bald, or receding. Each graft is extracted with precision to ensure that the dimensions are consistent, and then it is implanted methodically. Under the watchful eye of Dr. Torgerson, the technician will follow the re-growth plan that was designed specifically for you.
NeoGraft offers the least invasive transplant method available on the market. Previously, the strip method was the most common hair transplant procedure. It required the surgical removal of a strip of scalp, with hair attached, from the back of the head. This was painful, required several days of downtime, and resulted in scarring. The NeoGraft surgical device has been designed to quickly remove hair follicles with a spinning motion. There is no need to remove flaps of skin, so this results in minimal linear scarring and minimal downtime. Patients experience very littlediscomfort and are able to resume normal activities the following day. Because this procedure is minimally invasive, there is little risk of complications.
