Follicular Unit Extraction is a revolutionary technique in the field of hair transplantation. As a hair restoration specialist, Dr. Asaria provides among the best FUE hair transplant Toronto has to offer. While the procedure is relatively simple for a qualified surgeon, it requires the deft hands of an artist to produce truly natural and beautiful results. Dr. Asaria employs technical skill and artistry to ensure your results are unique and appear completely natural.
What is FUE?
Follicular Unit Extraction removes individual hair follicles directly from the scalp, which means there is no need to remove a long section of scalp resulting in a long scar. Further, patients can generally wear their hair quite short after FUE, as evidence of extraction is virtually gone in a matter of weeks. There are no stitches and no incisions that need to heal.
Your FUE begins with a consultation with Dr. Asaria. Based on what you want to achieve, he will design a surgical implantation plan for you. This plan lays out where your new hairline will start, its shape and its look. This is designed to complement your features and give you a natural and aesthetic outcome.
Next, the “donor site” is established, which is usually located on the back of the head. This area is a non-testosterone zone, which means that the hair follicles in it survive most of your lifetime and are ideal for continuing their life on the receptive area.
Local anesthesia is administered to make this procedure as comfortable as possible. Dr. Asaria and his team then use a specially designed medical instrument to harvest each individual follicular unit. Follicular units are groups of hairs that grow together, ranging from one to four hairs. Each individual hair follicle will be selected by Dr. Asaria and harvested with a microscopic tool that is less than one millimeter in diameter. Dr. Asaria harvests each hair manually, using extreme surgical precision to try and ensure the best possible growth. All the follicles are placed in specialized solution that closely mimics the body’s own fluids, maintaining the tissue and maximizing its life.
Next, Dr. Asaria applies local anesthesia to the receptive area. He and his team start with the actual implantation based on the implantation plan he designed specifically for you. Using a precise technique, he implants the living follicular units into exact locations across your scalp, with due consideration for the direction in which the follicle grows. Dr. Asaria’s specialized, high-volume technique for FUE hair transplant in Toronto allows for thousands of follicles to be implanted in one surgery.
The donor site and implantation sites need time to heal, but the time period is relatively short. After 7-10 days, any scabs that formed should be gone, leaving virtually no sign that anything was done. After about two weeks, most traces of the grafts will be completely gone.
FUE vs FUT
The breakthrough of FUE reveals itself in the recovery. There is minimal scarring opposed to the long scar caused by more traditional strip methods. This means you aren’t limited to a certain hair styles. Strip method patients must wear their hair slightly longer in the back to cover the scar left from that procedure. FUE patients enjoy hair of all lengths, short and long.Learn More About FUE vs. FUT
The Asaria Difference
Dr. Asaria delivers high volume FUE in his Toronto office, giving his patients significant relief from hair loss. With his painstaking, rigorous approach, he cuts no corners in restoring the crown and hairline for every single patient. By limiting himself to one hair transplant procedure per day, Dr. Asaria takes all the time necessary to ensure the results are natural and stable, providing among the best FUE hair transplant Toronto has available. He provides high volume FUE with exceptionally high take rates to give you the best possible density and natural-appearing hair transplantation.
ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is a relatively recent release in hair transplantation. It uses computer guided extraction to retrieve the hair grafts from the scalp. The advantage of this system is shortened time harvesting your hair, but that is where the advantage ends. Dr. Asaria’s main concern is giving his patients the permanent outcome they are looking for and experience has shown that this robotic approach results in the new hair being thinner and unnatural looking. Dr. Asaria does not use this system because it truly takes a practiced hand and an artist’s eye to give you full, natural looking new hair and that is something a machine cannot do.
NeoGraft is similar to the ARTAS system, except all parts of the FUE technique are completely automated, from extraction to implantation. This can lead to a low percentage of regrowth resulting in thinner hair and an unnatural look. It simply takes artistic skill to create a natural look and Dr. Asaria does not compromise when it comes to quality. NeoGraft and ARTAS may be technologically advanced machines, but technological advancement mustn't come at the cost of quality.
