Enjoy Believable Hair Restoration with Follicular Unit Transplantation [FUT]
Hair restoration has come a long way since its early years, when visible tufts of hair were transplanted into rows on the scalp. You’ll be delighted with the way modern clinics produce beautifully believable results.
At the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic clients choose Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), which works with groups of only 1-4 hairs at a time.
How Does the Procedure Work?
We create these follicular units by microscopically separating the tissue taken from a single donor strip or taken directly from the donor area. Follicular Unit Hair Transplants copy the way your hair grows naturally. Your results, in our expert hands, will look completely natural and be indistinguishable from your original hair.
With Follicular Hair Transplant Surgery, we’re able to place these tiny grafts into very small recipient sites. The tiny sites cause minimal damage to the skin and allow the surgeon to safely transplant thousands of hair grafts in a single session, thereby completing your hair restoration as quickly as possible. The tiny needle-sized recipient sites heal in just a few days without leaving any marks.
How Has the Technique Been Refined?
Follicular Unit Transplantation is a dramatic advance over the mini-micrografting hair transplant procedure of previous years. In mini-micrografting, the hair restoration doctor determined the graft sizes arbitrarily, and cut the donor tissue into variously sized pieces (this grafting technique was informally called “cut to size”). Minigrafts, which might contain up to 12 hairs, were bulky and could produce a tufted appearance. They also could result in a dimpling of the underlying skin. Micrografts, on the other hand, were frequently damaged during the removal process or were too fragile to survive.
Now, with Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation, powerful stereo-microscopes allow us to perform precise hair graft dissection, so that we maintain the integrity of follicular units. This process also allows us to carefully remove the non-hair bearing scalp around the units. This is how we ensure that the hair follicle remains intact and that your hair grafts are kept as small as possible.
You’ve been thinking about this carefully, and we understand that. Our first step is to sit down together and talk about what you can expect. We’re looking forward to your call.
