Two most popular methods for hair restoration

If you’ve been researching hair transplants in Toronto, you likely came across the two most popular methods for restoration: FUE and FUT. Today’s patients choose FUE ( follicular unit excision) more often than ever because it allows for minimal scarring and minimal evidence of a procedure. It’s not uncommon for busy men and women to choose cosmetic procedures that are less invasive and more convenient.

Hair transplant patients can visibly and dramatically restore real, growing hair to their thinning areas. The process is minimally invasive, but it is still surgery. Along with the permanent results come a few drawbacks that are considered a normal part of healing. Maybe you’ve been told that FUE patients must shave their heads. Is this true? Let’s take a closer look.

How FUE Hair Transplantation in Toronto performed

To consider whether you’ll need to have a portion of your head shaved for this treatment, you must first understand how FUE is done. The back and sides of a person’s scalp are the usual “donor” sites from which follicle grafts are extracted. These scalp zones tend to hold denser, DHT-resistant hairs. They tend to stay intact even when hairs at the crown and hairline fall out, which makes them robust and lasting donor follicles.

To access these healthy follicles and remove them one by one, the surgeon must see the small groupings of hair that grow naturally together and see the overall density of the donor area. FUE extractions are taken in a randomized pattern with special care not to over-harvest and deplete the area.

The standard approach to remove these units optimally is to shave or buzz a section of the hair very short. This allows for greater visibility and planning. The patient can visit the barber before their Toronto hair transplant to buzz the sides and back of their hair very short. That way their surgical site won’t stand out as dramatically different and all the hair can grow back in together at the same time.

No-shave- can it work for you?

There’s a new method catching on which works well for some people. Nick-named the “no-shave technique” this technique utilizes thin strip sections of donor scalp and just trim these sections while leaving surrounding hair long. The intention is that right after the procedure, men and women who wear longer hair will easily hide the small strips of trimmed donor hair.

The no-shave technique takes somewhat longer to perform and isn’t appropriate for everyone. Advanced, robotic hair transplant systems require an appropriate shaved zone to work efficiently, and those who desire high graft numbers for dramatic transformations, need a larger donor zone as well.

Whether you undergo a standard FUE shave or selectively trim discrete regions for a smaller transplant procedure, you need to select a skilled, experienced hair specialist. The biggest concern most patients have is whether their results will appear natural. Regardless of the method used, meticulous placement of donor hairs matches the direction, colour, texture and direction of surrounding strands.

When you select an experienced Toronto hair transplant surgeon, you’re well on your way to achieving the results you want.
