At SpaMedica in Toronto, we’re proud to offer a guarantee of success to all of our Regina and Saskatoon FUE hair transplant patients. We’ve been performing robotic FUE procedures since 1997—longer than any other North American clinic, and we’ve placed over a million FUE grafts! In addition to his recognition for contributions to FUE expertise worldwide, Dr. Mulholland has lectured, taught, and/or trained the majority of automated FUE physicians practicing in the US and Canada.
FUE, aka follicular unit extraction, allows for the harvesting of follicular units in singles, doubles, triples, and quadruples to ensure genetically related hair families grow together and result in a more natural-looking hair pattern. For those wishing to undergo a FUE hair transplant without having to contend with a linear scar, the most effective methods of harvest are robotic FUE harvest technologies Artas and NeoGraft, which expertly extract hair from the back of the scalp.
Dr. Mulholland will request “before photos.” Make sure you get shots from 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. The more angles, the better!
As with any surgery, it’s best to avoid drinking alcohol for minimum 3 days prior to your FUE hair transplant. Don’t shave or cut your hair for at least 2 weeks before your procedure. On the day of, your head may be shaven pre-procedure to allow the grafts and genetic hair to grow out together afterward.
The first phase of your FUE hair transplant procedure involves extraction from the back of your scalp, or your donor site—this takes roughly 4 hours. The second phase deploys a “stick-and-place” technique in which a small hypodermic needle creates a slit between your recipient’s hair. When the needle is removed, a graft is placed. This repeated process takes 2-4.5 hours total. Expect a full 8-10 hour day when planning your trip.
Immediately post FUE hair transplant, a dressing is placed over the tiny extraction holes at the back of your scalp. A new dressing is applied the next day, and you are free to return home after that. We are happy to schedule regular follow-ups via FaceTime for all our Regina and Saskatoon FUE hair transplant out-of-towners. Most patients return to work after 7-12 days. It’s important to wait 12-14 months (throughout your different hair growth phases) before judging the results of your hair restoration!
