At the Groot DermaSurgery Centre in Edmonton, Dr. Nakatsui uses the latest techniques of hair transplantation to produce a natural looking, undetectable hair transplant.
The “new” hair will live and grow throughout the person’s lifetime just as if it were growing in its original position. It can be cut, styled, colored, or permed because it is real hair.

Can you spot the hair transplant?
This is a close-up photo of unretouched results after ONE hair transplant by Dr. Nakatsui using 100% follicular units and the lateral slit technique—every one of the hairs in this photo are transplanted hairs with absolutely no evidence of scarring. In Dr. Nakatsui’s opinion, the only way to achieve this naturalness, density, and undetectability is to only use dense-packed follicular units. Consequently, Dr. Nakatsui will almost never use larger grafts (e.g. multi follicular-unit grafts, slot grafts, or minigrafts) anymore. The technique Dr. Nakatsui uses has been referred to as Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation. Learn more about Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Transplantation here.
To our knowledge, Dr. Nakatsui is one of only a few physicians in Canada who is capable of performing 100% Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplants on all patients and in Edmonton, he is the only physician capable of doing large 100% follicular unit hair transplant sessions (e.g. >4000 grafts), as it is technically difficult and demanding. In addition, he uses a state-of-the-art technique called the lateral slit technique to give a denser look than was possible prior to its use (as a result, in most cases, only one session of dense packing is required to completely fill in a given area—see results). He was personally trained in this advanced technique by its originator, Dr. Jerry Wong, and has found it so advantageous he uses it almost exclusively.
Dr. Nakatsui does both Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) procedures. He applies the principles of Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation to both procedures to give his patients the most natural hair restoration results possible.
