Hair Loss Causes

While there is a wide range of old wives’ tales that relate to hair loss, most of these have been debunked. Hair loss is most often caused by some combination of the following:

    • Hormone change
    • Aging
    • Family history

In addition, the earlier that your hair loss starts, the more severe that it will likely become.

What is Hair Transplant Surgery?

Hair transplantation is a procedure that helps to restore hair to the scalp in areas that are either bald, or thinning significantly. There are various types of hair transplant surgeries, including:

  • Hair Transplantation – This procedure involves removing small pieces of scalp that are hair-bearing and moving them to a thinning or bald area of the scalp. The two primary versions are F.U.E. & F.U.T. transplant surgery.
  • Flap Surgeries – These surgeries involve moving hair bearing scalp tissues to areas of the scalp where individuals are balding.
  • Scalp Reduction Surgery – This type of hair transplant involves using surgery to remove small balding areas and pulling together the areas of the scalp that are able to grow hair.

What Can You Expect from Your Consultation?

Part of what makes us a leader in the hair loss space is our intensive screening process of Calgary Hair Transplant candidates. We want each patient to have a realistic idea of their hair restoration  We strive to achieve the best possible result with each patient. Experience allows Dr. Sharma and his team to give you an accurate idea of which treatments can help you achieve your goal. Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery offers a wide suite of treatments and procedures to help you address your area of concern.

Confirm Eligibility

One of the integral factors for any hair transplant is ensuring the Donor site is strong enough to excise hairs from.

Certain medical conditions such as uncontrolled high blood pressure, blood-clotting or excessive scarring should be brought up during your consultation.

We will examine the strength and thickness of your hair to assure the follicles will be able to successfully transfer to the front or top of the head.

Create a Personalized Plan

During the consultation Dr. Sharma will ask about your hair loss history. This will allow him to determine how effective the hair transplant procedure may be for you.

No two hair transplants are the same. A consultation with Dr. Sharma assures that he is able to follow your natural hairline and enhance its density.

After assessing your goals Dr. Sharma will be able to determine where your new hair line will sit post-procedure.

Customized Quote

Once we have assessed how many grafts you will require for your hair restoration goals we can create a detailed quote. This quote gives you a breakdown of the cost of your surgery with multiple options to meet your goals.

The invoice will include our discount that comes with large procedures and the deduction of your consultation fee. We will also be able to go over financing options.

Will my Hair Transplant Look Natural?

When done properly, the results of hair transplant surgery can look completely natural, so much so that a hair stylist may not even notice that you’ve had a procedure done. However, the skill of hair transplant surgeons varies widely, so it’s critical to choose a surgeon with ample experience.

How Much Does Hair Transplant Surgery Cost?

It’s best to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sharma to get an accurate cost estimate. We also offer virtual consultations over WhatsApp® or FaceTime® for your convenience.

When will my New Hair Begin to Grow?

Hair follicles will typically begin to grow within three to five months after surgery. The transplanted hair will begin to grow in very thin, but will thicken over time. The transplanted hair should be mature after one year, and continue to grow for a lifetime.

Ideal Candidate for Hair Transplant Surgery

Trying to decide if you’re a good candidate for hair transplant surgery? Typically, you’ll need to have healthy hair growth in the back and sides of your head, which can be used as donor areas.

There’s no doubt that hair transplant surgery can be successful, and in turn, boost your confidence, but it’s important that you have realistic expectations about the end result. Discussing your goals with a licensed hair transplant surgeon like Dr. Sharma can help to ensure your procedure is successful.

All hair transplant techniques use your existing hair, and therefore the goal is to find the most efficient use of your existing hair to give you a more natural appearance. But it’s important to remember that there are limits as to the results you can achieve, based on the amount of hair that you currently have. If you have very little hair, then this type of surgery may not be a good option for you.

Hair Transplant Recovery

One of the most important aspects of hair transplant surgery is obviously the recovery process. The reality is that how you feel after the procedure depends largely on the severity of the procedure. Any tightness, or pain can be managed with medication prescribed by Dr. Sharma. Typically, if bandages are used they can be removed in one day, and you can often begin washing your hair within two days after surgery. If stitches were used during your procedure, they’ll be removed in 7-10 days. It’s important to discuss items like bruising, swelling and drainage with your surgeon to ensure you understand what to look for after hair transplant surgery.

Meet Dr. Anil Sharma

We thought we would take the time to answer a few questions that have come in through our Emails and Direct Messages about the Hair Transplant procedure. There is no such thing as a bad question so Dr. Sharma wanted to publically answer just a few of them over coffee to help you understand more about what we do best.

Dr. Sharma's Results

In January of 2019 I met Cole and the one thing I recall was a very handsome face obscured by a rather unsightly baseball cap.

Cole explained to me he was suffering with low self-esteem and seldom removed his baseball cap due to his receding hairline and thin frontal hair. We formulated a surgical plan to proceed with a follicular unit excision hair restoration surgery. We utilized the maximum number of multi-unit grafts with maximal implantation around the frontotemporal angle and furlock region.

When we reviewed Cole’s results at 8 months it was an emotional and joyous day for all of us. He has lost the baseball cap and gained an extra 100kg of self-confidence. His new hairline perfectly shows off his sparkling blue eyes and handsome looks that in my opinion, were always there.
