The steps to a successful transplant

The hair transplant method, carried out by a member of the Capilia Medical team, consists of extracting hair follicles from an area of the scalp, called the donor area, and then transplanting them to the areas experiencing hair loss. Here is a description of each step of the process to help you better understand this procedure to permanently correct hair loss.

Step 1: Consultation

Before starting the hair transplant process, it’s important to ask yourself a few questions to be sure that it’s the right solution for you. Your hair loss must be of a permanent nature and not caused by a temporary condition. Otherwise, there’s a chance that your symptoms will return.

What factors have caused your hair loss? Is your hair loss caused by taking medication? A nutritional deficiency? A health problem? Your answers to these questions will determine whether you’re a suitable candidate for a hair transplant.

Step 2: Evaluation of the donor area

This evaluation determines the next steps. The number of follicles available for the transplant directly affects the thickness that can be achieved. To create a natural effect, the donor area must have a sufficient amount of hair, and the medical team’s experience and qualifications are key. At Capilia, Dr. Duguay’s team has over 15 years of experience and has successfully carried out many procedures. They support you throughout the process up until the surgery, and also provide follow-ups.

Step 3: Grafting

If Dr. Duguay and his team determine that a transplant is the solution for you, the next step is the procedure itself. Note that hair transplants are a surgical procedure that can take from 3 to 8 hours, depending on the number of hairs to be transplanted. However, the procedure is virtually painless as it is carried out carefully, comfortably, and under local anaesthesia. As the aim of the procedure is to create an impression of fuller hair, Dr. Duguay and his team have developed a technique that takes into account the size of the grafts, hair angle, and desired thickness. This achieves even more natural-looking results!

Important notes

  • Hair transplants have permanent results, however, the natural hair loss process changes over time. This is why you need to closely monitor your hair thickness.
  • It may take a number of months, and sometimes up to a year, for optimal results. You just need to be patient.
  • The cost of the procedure depends on a number of factors, particularly the client’s expectations and number of hairs to be transplanted.

This medical procedure shouldn’t be taken lightly, which is why the Capilia Medical team is here to support you. If you are interested in getting a hair transplant, book a free consultation with Capilia to establish your needs and start the right process for you.
