A hair transplant or surgical hair restoration is a procedure where follicles are surgically removed from one part of the scalp or body and transplanted “by the graft” to another part of the scalp where the area is balding. Most grafts used contain one to three hairs. All grafts are placed in tiny incisions made by microsurgical scalpels. These small incisions allow for the fastest healing time and least amount of scabbing. Hundreds of single hair follicles are used to recreate a hairline. Larger grafts are placed behind the hairline.
When the hair grows, it recreates the natural distribution while leaving the surface of the scalp smooth and unaltered. The number of grafts required depends upon the location and size of the area to be restored and the density desired in that area.
Hair restoration, much like other plastic surgery, is an art. It requires a surgeon with a trained hand to create the most natural appearing result that mimics mother nature and is undetectable to even the most critical eye. Pro-Hairlines, one of Ontario’s most prominent experts in hair restoration for over 40 years, assures that patients will receive the most natural-appearing, state-of-the-art hair restorations.
