Hair Transplant Restoration Surgery Follicular Unit Extraction FUE hair loss edmonton alberta canada
Number of Grafts: 407
Areas Treated: Right retroauricular region, right temple, and mid frontal region
Number of Procedures: 1
Type of Surgery: Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)

No procedure is too small for Dr. Nakatsui, as is the case with this this friendly gentleman that came to see Dr. Nakatsui regarding scarring alopecia that occurred over 20 years ago. He had no complaints or issues with hair thinning, rather just 3 areas of scarring alopecia. The patient advised us that he had surgery elsewhere where the surgeon excised a portion of scar. This led to a linear scar line. When dealing with hair transplants into a scar region, we know that approximately 80% of the hairs will grow and survive whereas transplanted hairs into virgin scalp will have a success rate of approximately 96-98%. The patient was made aware of the decreased survival rate and still proceeded with the surgery. Ultimately, the end result is very natural, thick, and blends in well with his surrounding hair.

This young gentleman came to Dr. Nakatsui complaining of a high hair line. He denied any hair loss or recession, but rather simply a high hairline that he always had. In situations like this, medications such as Rogaine and Propecia will not be able to grow/regrow hair in an area that lacked hair follicles. This patient opted for hair transplant surgery.

Hair Transplant Restoration Surgery Follicular Unit Extraction FUE hair loss edmonton alberta canada
Number of Grafts: 2,200
Areas treated: Crown and temples
Number of procedures: 2
Type of surgery: Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)

This young gentleman came to our clinic complaining of hair loss to his crown (vertex) and temples. The patient opted to have follicular unit extraction surgery (FUE). Dr. Nakatsui transplanted 2,200 grafts into the crown and temples.

At our centre, when a follicular unit extraction surgery is performed, Dr. Nakatsui is the sole individual extracting the grafts manually by hand. Dr. Nakatsui takes precaution and care when extracting the donor hair. The donor hair can change angles ever so minutely below the surface of the skin. If care is not taken and angle is not accounted for, the risk of transecting (cutting through) a hair increases, therefore rendering the graft unusable.

Areas treated: Hairline | Mid | Crown
Number of procedures: 1
Type of surgery: Strip (FUT)

This gentleman came in with progressing hair loss all throughout his scalp. The hairline, temples, mid scalp, and crown had thinned out significantly. Dr. Nakatsui transplanted just under 5,000 grafts in one surgery. What was interesting about this patient’s case was that his natural widow’s peak was slightly off centre. A few hairs were transplanted into this section. The end result is completely undetectable and incredibly natural looking hair restoration. For more photos of this patient please click here.

Areas Treated: Hairline and temples
Number of procedures: 1
Type of surgery: Strip (FUT)

This gentleman came into our clinic with hair loss to the hair line and temple regions. Dr. Nakatsui transplanted approximately 2,700 grafts. The hair line requires the most attention to detail as it is the most visible area and also the first thing that people will notice. If there are any irregularities, it can be spotted very easily. Another important detail with the hairline is that, although technically possible, it is not recommended to lower the hairline too drastically as this may look unnatural as the patient ages.

This friendly patient experienced slow gradual thinning throughout his scalp. The angles in which the grafts are transplanted is incredibly important for the end result. The frontal aspect of the scalp will have a different angle than the crown. All of these angles and directions need to be followed in order to achieve a natural end result.

This gentleman came to our hair loss clinic with recession to his hairline that extended back to his mid scalp. Dr. Nakatsui transplanted approximately 3,000 grafts for the final result. Close examination of the hairline demonstrates the absolute importance to angle and the use of follicular units (the very basic units of hair) when performing a hair transplant.

Type of surgery: Strip (FUT)

This crown hair transplant result is from one of Dr. Nakatsui’s earliest patients (2003). The before photo is a Polaroid, while the after photo is a digital photo. The benefit of this photo shows two things:

1) The absolute importance of angle in a hair transplant. The vertex has a high degree of angle change. If the angles are not followed correctly, the end result will appear unnatural.

2) The transplanted hairs, once they grow in, can be coloured just like your regular hair, because it is your own natural hair.

This is a patient who came in and was concerned about the progressive thinning of his hair. We decided to fill in the frontal scalp as it was this area that concerned him. He received 596 single grafts, 1440 double grafts, and 536 big grafts, for a total count of 2572 grafts. He is ecstatic about his results so far and his post op photos are about 11 months out.

FYI, the patient’s preoperative photos show that his hair is dyed brown. We had asked him to do this so we could make the recipient sites without damaging his pre-existing, very, very white hair.

Testimonials

The hairline is very natural.

I went to Dr. Nakatsui and his team in Edmonton for a series of two hair transplants, and have been very satisfied with the results. The team was very friendly and supportive, and Dr. Nakatsui is clearly artistic and knowledgeable. The hairline is very natural and the end result is that I no longer have any attention or concern with hair loss.
