We at Dr Paul C. Cotterill's clinic provide a comfortable environment for your hair loss treatment surgery. The surgery itself can take anywhere between 4-8 hours. During that time, the patient is resting comfortably, watching movies and having snacks. Dr Cotterill answers all your queries regarding your procedure, will only perform one surgery at a time, performs all the surgery himself and does not delegate any of the surgical steps to technicians. Most of our clients come through referrals from other satisfied customers.
Hair loss can appear in ways, it can come gradually or suddenly and lead to baldness. Some of the signs and symptoms of hair loss include:
We offer quality bald treatment procedure in Toronto that involves the following:
When you come to Dr Cotterill's clinic for your hair loss problem, he assesses you and offers personalized solutions based on your needs. He doesn't follow a cookie-cutter approach. He listens to you and designs a treatment plan that is agreeable to you. We ask you to come to our office at 7:30 AM on the day of your procedure and offer a relaxed environment so you can wait in peace. You're offered a mild tranquillizer like Valium to calm your nerves and deal with any side effects of the anaesthetic.
The hair in the donor area is clipped to a particular length, and both this area and the recipient area are anesthetized. After the anaesthetic has taken effect, a specially designed scalpel is used by Dr Cotterill to cut an ellipse of hair-bearing scalp from the donor areas. The ellipse, with the use of a stereoscopic microscope, is then carefully slivered into smaller loaves of hair, which are then further dissected into single or double follicular units (follicular unit family). 'Micrografts' are obtained by slicing the donor tissue into very small sections, regardless of whether the naturally occurring bundles are kept together or not. Dr Cotterill uses microscopic dissection to obtain follicular units on all grafts.
Once the strip graft has been dissected into individual follicular units Dr Cotterill will personally make each individual recipient site for each follicular unit graft, taking care to ensure proper angle, direction, depth of incision site and spacing between grafts. He then supervises his surgical assistants while they plant the grafts into the recipient sites.
Once the procedure has been carried out, the patient is given pain tablets and Dr Cotterill calls you in the night to assess your condition. You're asked to come back the next day so that the area can be cleaned. While the sutures are removed in 7-10 days, the crusts and scabs are gone by day 10-12.
You should take 5-7 days off work to let yourself heal. Any forehead swelling goes down by that time. You're also required to refrain from any physical activity a week after the surgery.
The hair in each graft usually all fall out (the roots remain dormant under the skin) 2-3 weeks after surgery. At three months, the hairs are just breaking through the skin and are just beginning to grow.
Six months after the operation, the grafts will be about 1.5 inches long. One can liken the appearance of cosmetic benefit after the surgery as being: 60% of the benefit at six months, 70% at seven months, 90% at nine months and full growth and width of the grafts after 12 months.
Hair transplantation can be an ideal solution for men and women who have significant hair loss, thinning hair and bald spots. This involves the transplantation of your own hair taken from the back of the scalp and planted in places where there is severe loss of hair. Hair growth can start after 2 to 3 months of the procedure. It recovers within 8 to 10 months.
