What can I expect from facial hair transplantation in Toronto?
Facial hair transplantation is similar to the more common hair grafting procedure that is done to relieve a thinning or balding scalp. Hair follicles are taken from a donor site on your head and transplanted into the new area. Once transplanted, the follicle adapts to its new surroundings and continues its life on your face, giving you the facial hair you desire.
Dr. Asaria specializes in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). This is the most advanced technique for hair transplants in Toronto. The best FUE transplant in Toronto should provide thick, natural looking hair that is permanent with minimal scarring and a quick recovery time.
Dr. Asaria is also happy to offer non-surgical alternatives to stimulate hair growth. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments using our FDA and Health Canada approved RegenLab centrifuge and Needle Concept U225 Mesotherapy Gun, have been successful in stimulating hair growth. PRP, which harnesses its regenerative properties in a concentrated form, helps promote growth in your own hair follicles. PRP hair restoration in Toronto is a great option for those seeking a less invasive alternative to a hair transplant.
Facial hair transplant procedure
The procedure begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Asaria in Toronto. He tasks himself with fully understanding exactly what his patient wants to achieve and spends as much time as needed to do so. Facial hair transplant surgery can address a number of issues:
- Thin or patchy beard growth
- Thin sideburns
- Thin mustache
- Thin feminine eyebrows
During the consultation, Dr. Asaria will assess the donor sites to determine the amount of follicles available and with that information, he will provide you with a surgical plan designed to achieve your image goals. This consultation will also go over any limitations he identifies so that the goal for the surgery is realistic and achievable. Dr. Asaria’s goal is to provide his patients with world-class facial hair transplant surgery in Toronto. His many delighted patients are evidence of his meticulous work.
Medical history & pre operative instructions
Well before surgery, you will be interviewed concerning your general health and to screen for medical conditions such as high blood pressure and asthma. While these conditions do not prevent facial hair transplant surgery, Dr. Asaria in Toronto will need to be aware of any conditions you may have.
Prior to surgery there are only a few necessary preparations. You will be asked to refrain from drinking alcohol for a week prior to your surgery, and to avoid taking any NASID type over-the-counter pain medication such as Advil. These medications can increase the risk of bleeding which makes it difficult for the grafts to ‘take’. Along with medications, you will be asked to avoid Echinacea, Ginkgo Biloba, garlic and Vitamin E. All of the preoperative instructions will be given to you well ahead of time so that you can be fully prepared for your procedure.
The day of your surgery
On the day of surgery, you will be made comfortable in the surgical area and ample time will be provided for you to ask any last minute questions you have about the procedure or recovery. Local anesthesia will be administered to the area where the donor follicles will be harvested, usually at the back of the head. For patients who are bald, chest hair can be used for donor follicles.
Once the follicles are harvested, some time will be necessary to prepare them for implantation. During this interval, lunch is served and patients are able to check their email, or otherwise relax.
Facial hair transplant technique
When the follicles are ready the transplantation part of the surgery begins. As Dr. Asaria is a perfectionist, he takes his time to ensure each follicle is placed as it would naturally occur, paying attention to the angle of the hair growth as well as overall density. His meticulous attention to detail has earned him the reputation of providing among the best beard transplant Toronto can provide. Time spent on this part of the surgery is what sets his work apart from the rest.
Following surgery, you can expect to be a little sore at the donor site as well as the transplant site. You will receive prescriptions for all medications you will need well before surgery so be sure to fill them at least a week prior. You will have medication for pain, an antibiotic, and medication to reduce swelling.
Returning to work after your beard transplant
You will be able to return to work the following day and will be sporting your new facial hair immediately, although with a bit of redness. It is part of the healing process for the hair to fall out after two to four weeks. The follicle is completely healthy and within a few months, new hair will grow and behave exactly as the rest of your facial hair.
