Our hair transplant clinic is led by Dr. Anil Sharma who has performed countless hair transplant procedures of all different kinds. Under his trained eye he can identify and follow the natural curvature of the hair. The result is a hairline that looks as if no procedure was needed in the first place. We love to share the results of these transformative stories.

How does it work?
No two hair transplants are the same, but our process is always tailored to your individual needs.
At our hair transplant clinic, we first schedule a comprehensive consultation, examination, and history. If you are a suitable candidate, Dr. Sharma will identify the techniques that will suit your needs individually including crown hair transplants. During the consultation, Dr. Sharma will go over all the details of the hair transplant surgery including healing times, additional treatments, and medication options.

What does it cost?
When determining the cost of a hair transplant in Edmonton, there are a few key variables that need to be taken into account. The truth is that not all hair loss is the same, which means treatment needs to be determined individually for each patient, making static hair transplant pricing protocols both difficult and ineffective.

Hair follicles & grafts
A graft is a collection of hair follicles. During a hair transplant procedure, Dr. Sharma redistributes the follicles which can contain single or multiple hairs. When harvesting hair for your procedure we transfer hair from the donor area. This section is located at the back of the head, above the neck.
Learn more about grafts and follicles
Protecting your hair follicles for the time between extraction and implantation is a crucial part of the hair transplant procedure. The individual hair is living tissue that must survive while being transferred from the donor site to the desired area of the scalp.
Learn how we store your grafts
Incisions determine where how the hair will grow. One of the most important factors for a successful and natural hair transplant result are the incisions. This portion of the surgery requires a great deal of control and precision. The depth and angle of each incision will determine how the hair will grow.

Hair Transplant FAQ
We’ve compiled a list of some of the most common questions asked during our initial consultation
What makes the process permanent is the fact that the newly transplanted hair follicle will retain its “safe” donor characteristics. This hair is resistant to DHT. This is hormone that causes male pattern hair loss to miniturize and ultimately stop hair from growing for most men.
This primarily depends on the quality of hair on your donor site. You are required to have a certain amount of hair density at the back of your head so we can transfer it to the desired area. If you have a large demand for density or coverage at the front of your head, then you need a large amount of eligible donor grafts in the back.
The cost of a hair transplant depends on the procedure type and the number of grafts transplanted. Dr. Sharma performs the procedures manually in order to ensure the most natural look possible. Hair transplant procedures generally start at $6,000.
Even though hair loss is an unavoidable experience for many people, it is possible to turn back the clock so you can regain a youthful appearance. Dr. Sharma has a keen artistic eye and years of experience creating natural hairlines. Dr Sharma’s methods are designed to create results that look like you never had a procedure in the first place.
If you are ready to feel confident with a full head of hair, we are here to assist.

A local anesthetic block is used which is very comfortable (the patient can even watch a movie if they so wish during the procedure).
Post-procedure, patients seldom require anything stronger than a simple analgesic such as Advil.
Patients are then followed up personally by Dr. Sharma. He will always consult with the patient the day following the surgery and ensure they are sent home with full after-care instructions and contact telephone numbers for the clinic (24 hours per day for the first three days post-surgery).
