  1. @brickellmoto: it's always tough to make a choice for such an important decision, all our photos are done under the same lighting with an HD camera. Attached are some videos of patients previously posted, which is a better way to evaluate results than any photos. The ultimate and best way to make an evaluation is seeing patients in person. If you are close to our Toronto or Ottawa office we welcome any prospective patients to meet our previous patients in person.
  2. 24 year old patient, with a previous unsuccessful hair transplant, came in to restore hairline and mid front of hairline. Dr. Rahal designed a hairline to fill in the recession and to add density to mid front. The treatment area was 40 cm². The transplanted density done at 35 grafts/cm² or at 76 hairs/cm². He now has more styling options with the new transplanted hair. Please note the results photos were emailed to us by this patient (not taken in clinic). Surgery type: FUE Recipient Area treated 40 cm² Zones Treated 1 to 3 Grafts Transplanted 1415 grafts Recipient Graft Density 35 grafts/cm² Recipient Hair Density 76 hairs/cm² Graft breakdown Single Hair 248 grafts Two Hair 749 grafts Three Hair 393 grafts Four Hair 25 grafts TOTAL GRAFTS 1415 grafts TOTAL HAIRS 3025 hairs HAIRS PER GRAFT 2.14 hairs/graft

    With all due respect melvin, Rahal is not just a strip clinic. in fact our practice is about 80 percent FUE and 20 percent strip. Attached is just few of previously posted results of fue work. Being good at strip, does not mean bad at fue. in fact having done strip for year, sets you up for better understanding of the nuances of hair restoration surgery in terms of grafts management, planting etc. As for cost, which is a factor for many in north american patients looking for cheaper options in europe. this not always the case. we charge 6 dollars canadian, (4.4 usd or 3.8 euro) per grafts up to 2500 grafts and discounted above 2500 grafts.

  11. Thank you for sharing your experience HTGuy1313. Amazing result. @JohnCasper. there are small percentage (less than 5%) of patients who are not candidates for FUE. It could be due few reasons such as: -hair follicle fragility risking too much damage when extracting -too much tethering and long follicles. so you have to go deeper with the punch and possible create traction damage to a fragile follicles. -too much splaying of the follicles, so you will end up transecting one of the follicles (unless you use a larger punch (not ideal) -very mushy type of tissue the above are just few reasons off the top of my head, that can make a patient not a candidate for FUE, and then the choice is to either do strip or do nothing. Any ethical Physician would not want to continue with fue extraction if you are not getting viable grafts. we continue to do FUT for patients not wanting to do fue or are not candidates.
  12. Age 50 year old patient , wanted to restore front and top towards the crown. He is blessed with good hair texture as well as good hair/scalp contrast.

  13. Thanks for your question @goodwally We see many patients with "diffuse" pattern hair loss. It is a more challenging pattern of hair loss to treat with a hair transplant (in some cases) as the risk of permanent shock loss can be elevated. If it's too early for a hair transplant, we have alternative options such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) or 3D SMP that have offered huge improvements in terms of adding visual density for our patients. These can be great alternatives until a hair transplant becomes a better option. The best place to start is with a free consultation to get Dr. Rahal's recommendation. Every patient is unique, and he will design a personalized hair loss treatment plan to give you the best long term solution(s) to your hair loss. Let me know if you have any other questions!
