What does a hair transplant mean for men?
Baldness is traditionally associated with ageing, although it can occur at any age. Hair loss affects over 50% of men over 50, and hair transplantation is the only hair restoration solution that offers permanent results. These procedures are provided in Toronto at Follicle HT hair transplant clinic.
How does Hair Transplant work at Follicle HT in Toronto?
At Follicle HT Hair Transplant Clinic in Toronto, our board-certified surgeons, Dr Mark Korman and Dr Philip Solomon, lead a team of experts in FUE and FUT hair restoration techniques. During the hair transplant procedure, our surgeons redistribute existing donor hair from thicker parts of the scalp to your thinning areas.
The hair transplant procedure is minimally invasive, leaves no visible scars and produces dense, natural-looking hair. Hair transplants are usually performed under local anaesthetic, meaning you’ll be awake during the procedure but not feel any pain or discomfort.
Transplanted hair tends to behave the same way as the hair in the area from which it was taken because the hair in the donor area is genetically different from balding hair and looks more like the hair in the location from which the graft was taken. As a result, you’ll find that they won’t fall out like previous bald hairs.
If performed correctly, the procedure will last a lifetime for most people, or at least into old age.
It can happen that, with age, the donor areas (usually the back and sides) lighten, and the transplanted hair follows the same trend.
Whichever procedure you perform at Follicle HT in Toronto, expect the transplanted hair to fall out within two or three weeks, but you’ll start to notice new growth after a few months.
What is the difference between FUE and FUT techniques?
At Follicle HT Hair transplant clinic in Toronto, there are two types of procedures to solve the hair loss problem: follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT).
In Toronto, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is generally the more popular of the two procedures, as it typically results in less scarring, as the hair is removed from the back of the neck and moved to the transplant site using a specialized microsurgical needle.
FUT involves removing a strip of hair from the back of the head and may, in some cases, be more effective for certain patients.
At Follicle HT Hair transplant clinic in Toronto, our board-certified surgeons, Dr Mark Korman and Dr Philip Solomon, are here to help. Their expertise in Hair transplantation allows for safe and effective results for their patients.
