Focused Exclusively on Hair Transplantation

Based on our experience, surgical hair restoration is quite a bit more demanding than most other facial cosmetic surgery procedures. Producing an exceptional result requires an incredible amount of skill, dedicated practice, and extreme focus in order to produce exceptional results consistently. Unlike most other “hair loss surgery clinics”, the Sure Hair transplantation clinic is not a general practice cosmetic surgery clinic claiming to be a “hair transplant clinic” we do not practice nose surgery, Botox, eyelid surgery, eyebrow transplant surgery or any other facial plastic surgery procedures aside from hair transplant surgery.As the old saying goes, “jack of all trades, master of none” certainly applies to most “hair transplant clinics”.Hair transplantation is incredibly difficult to master, which is why our sole focus is on the art, science and practice of the surgical hair restoration procedure. We believe that our dedicated focus allows us to provide you with the very best results efficiently and cost-effectively.We offer Follicular hair transplantation (FUT) and also the much more modern and less invasive procedure of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

The Uni-Strand™ FUT & FUE hair transplant procedure

At Surehair, we offer both of the best hair loss surgery procedures, Follicular unit transplantation or FUT for short and Follicular Unit Extraction FUE.

We focus exclusively on these two hair loss transplant procedures because we believe our extreme specialization ensures that Surehair provides the most refined, most polished, and ultimately the best hair transplant process available anywhere.

Both methods have been refined and perfected over our 27 years of surgical experience, and we now employ our proprietary set of advanced surgical techniques, which we call Uni-Strand™.

The Uni-Strand™ Dense Packing Technique

The Uni-Strand™ dense packing hairline reconstructive surgery technique alone improves our results tremendously because we can achieve denser, thicker-looking frontal scalp hair growth as our proprietary surgical procedure ensures a high hair graft survival and regrowth rate, which allows us to pack either FUT or FUE grafts very tightly together on the balding area of scalp to reproduce a very natural looking high-density hairline.

The Uni-Strand™ Scar Camouflaging Technique

Undetectable Hair Transplant Donor Area Scars

Undetectable hair transplant donor area scar, Surehair’s Uni-Strand™ Follicular unit transplantation procedure includes a special type of donor area closure that we have pioneered here at our Toronto hair transplant centre.

In conjunction with proper post-op care, our Uni-Strand™ donor site closure technique allows hair to grow right through the hair transplant scar, camouflaging the donor area incision exceptionally well and allowing patients to wear much shorter hairstyles without the hair transplant scar ever becoming noticeable.

Frequently Asked Hair Transplant Questions

What is a hair transplant?

A hair transplant procedure is a highly specialized type of facial plastic surgery used to treat scalp hair loss, generally caused by androgenic alopecia, commonly known as male pattern baldness.

The hair transplant surgeon reconstructs the hairline and fills the balding area of the scalp. Each hair follicle must be implanted with precision into the scalp to produce very congruent angulation while simultaneously ensuring each FUE graft of transplanted hair is handled with extreme care so that each newly transplanted hair graft will grow and produce completely natural-looking healthy hair growth on the thinning or bald area of the scalp.

Also, it is essential to note that the term hair implants and also the term hair cloning is often conflated with a hair transplant procedure; please note that they are not the same procedure or even a part of the procedure, and we do not currently advise anyone undertake either of these procedures.

Is a hair transplant permanent?

The short answer is yes. Surgical hair transplantation is predicated on the theory of “donor dominance”. The individual hair follicles contained within the grafts transplanted during surgery are “donor dominant”, and since those transplanted follicles are genetically resistant to DHT, a hair transplant should last for a lifetime.
  • Donor dominance is the theory of genetics; it indicates that a transplanted hair follicle will retain all of its genetic characteristics, colour, thickness, and texture, including resistance or immunity to DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), the hormone responsible for hair loss.

How much does hair transplant surgery cost in Toronto?

Approximately $3,500 for a facial hair transplant, and depending on whether you are have an FUE procedure or an FUT procedure, the prices in the Greater Toronto Area can range as high as $15,000 for an extensive FUE hair transplant procedure. FUT (strip) procedures are generally 10% – 20% less expensive because they do not require as much time and manual labour as a FUE procedure.

How Much is a 3000 graft hair transplant?

Our average cost for a patient needing 3000 grafts for the correction of a Norwood scale 2,3,4 male pattern baldness is approximately $8500.00 at Sure Hair International for our patients here in Toronto, Canada. The price can vary by approximately 10% from patient to patient due to individual factors. However, generally speaking, that is our average hair transplant price for patients of our clinic in the Greater Toronto area.

At Sure Hair International, our pricing is straightforward and transparent; you get every last graft you paid for!

We charge $4.00 per/hair transplant graft, which is approximately 25% less than the average per/graft price quoted by most other clinics in Toronto, while still providing world-class results second to none performed by a surgical hair restoration team led by a multi-board certified medical director.

If you would like to learn more about hair restoration surgery costs, be sure to check out our Guide to hair transplant Costs it contains detailed, up-to-date information.

Do you offer financing?

Medical financing is available to Sure Hair International patients in Canada from a few private financial institutions. Sure Hair International does not offer hair transplant financing directly to the public. However, we have aligned ourselves with some oft the top medical financing companies available to assist our patients with their financing needs.

Is hair transplant covered by OHIP?

For the vast majority, hair transplant surgery is an elective procedure and not part of reconstructive surgery, which means the costs must be covered by the patient and not by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).

The only exception is when the procedure is part of reconstructive surgery from an accidental injury or disfigurement that could potentially qualify for coverage by OHIP or a private medical insurance plan.

Most private health insurance plans also do not cover the costs for any elective cosmetic surgery such as hair transplants. When the procedure is elective, the patients must cover the costs.

The only exception is when the procedure is part of reconstructive surgery from an accidental injury or disfigurement that could potentially qualify for coverage by OHIP or a private medical insurance plan.

Do hair transplants stop balding?

A hair transplant is considered “hair restoration” and can effectively reverse the appearance of hair loss. However, it is not a “hair loss treatment” because the underlying genetic mechanism which caused the hair loss initially can continue to progress and affect the follicles on your scalp, which are susceptible to DHT.
  • It is very important to understand that a hair transplant will not prevent further loss of genetically susceptible hair.
After a hair transplant, patients are advised to begin a hair loss treatment regimen with a treatment that will interrupt or ideally fully arrest the genetic mechanism which caused their initial hair loss with medications such as:
  • Minoxidil (Rogaine)
  • Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar)
  • Dutasteride (Avodart)
  • Ketoconazole (Nizoral)

How is a hair transplant procedure performed?

The hair transplant surgeon will anaesthetize the entire scalp and begin by removing donor hair grafts from the back of the head, either as a strip of hair or as individual hair follicle grafts. Each graft will be carefully dissected and implanted in the bald area of the scalp.

Each graft is implanted with very specific angulation and density consistent with the patient’s own naturally growing hair.

Each graft of transplanted hair is handled with extreme care so that each new hair graft will produce completely natural-looking healthy hair growth on the bald area of the scalp skin once the patient heals from the surgery and the new grafts begin growing, which is generally three months post-op.

What are the different types of hair transplant surgery?

There are two main types of hair transplant surgery, follicular unit extraction, commonly referred to as FUE hair transplants, and Follicular unit transplantation commonly referred to as a FUT or strip hair transplant. Others, such as the Neograft hair transplant and the ARTAS robotic hair transplant, are variations of the FUE hair transplant, simply using branded names to differentiate the procedures along with branded medical equipment.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) works by extracting a singular follicular unit from the back of the scalp one at a time and transplanting it to the area of hair loss.

Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) works by surgically removing a strip of hair-bearing scalp skin from the back of the head, dissecting it into individual follicular units using a stereoscopic microscope and transplanting the dissected grafts to the area of hair loss.

At Surehair, we offer both FUT and FUE hair transplant procedures.

Do hair transplants Work?

Approximately 98 per cent of the time, hair transplants work very well. As with any surgical procedure, there is always a risk of failure. However, as reported by hair transplant surgeons, data collected indicates the success rate is approximately 98 per cent, so they have an excellent probability of success.

Further, a 2016 study indicates that even in hair transplant candidates who typically get a sub-optimal to poor hair transplant regrowth rate, intra-operative plasma therapy helps 75% or more of the transplanted grafts grow fully mature hairs.

This is just one of the reasons why at Sure Hair International, we always include intra-operative plasma therapy as an integral part of every hair transplant surgery we perform.
