At SpaMedica in Toronto, we’re proud to say we’ve placed over a million FUE grafts! Dr. Mulholland’s FUE expertise is unparalleled. He has lectured, taught, and/or trained the majority of automated FUE physicians on the continent. SpaMedica has been performing automated FUE procedures since 1997, longer than any other clinic in North America.
FUE, or follicular unit extraction, allows follicular units to be harvested in singles, doubles, triples, and quadruples, ensuring genetically related hair families grow together, producing a natural-looking pattern. The most effective way to undergo a FUE hair transplant without leaving a linear scar is by harvesting hair from the back of the scalp with robotic FUE harvest technologies Artas and NeoGraft.
If Dr. Mulholland has asked you for “before photos,” be sure to get shots from several key angles: the front, with your hairline visible; left and right side profile shots; left and right side 45-degree angle shots; the crown of your head; and the back of your head.
If you have little hair to hide the transplants, the top of your head may be shaven pre-procedure to allow the grafts and genetic hair to grow out together. With sessions involving 1500+ grafts, the entire back and sides of your scalp will be shaved pre-surgery too. Avoid shaving or cutting your hair for at least 2 weeks before your FUE transplant.
The first phase of the procedure involves extraction from the back of your scalp. This takes 4 hours. The second phase deploys a “stick-and-place” technique in which a small hypodermic needle creates a slit between your recipient hair. As the needle is removed, the graft is inserted. This takes 2-4.5 hours. Ultimately, you should plan for an 8-10 hour day.
Post hair transplant, a dressing is placed over the tiny extraction holes at the donor site. The next day, a new dressing is applied. After this, follow-ups via FaceTime can easily be scheduled! Most patients can return to work in 7-12 days. Wait 12-14 months before judging the full results of your hair restoration!
