Hair transplantation is becoming more and more common every year. The beauty of modern hair transplantation is that a good hair transplant is undetectable and in the vast majority of dense packed cases, usually only requires one surgery to achieve the desired density. Surgeries performed at lower densities will often require more than one surgery to achieve sufficient density.

There are different methods used to create insertion sites. Some surgeons will use needles whereas others will use tiny blades to make tiny slits. Slits vary in width from 0.6 mm to 1.2 mm and can be made in a sagittal or coronal (lateral) orientation. Some physicians will use larger round punches or slot punches to remove scalp tissue to make room for larger grafts. Dr. Nakatsui prefers to use lateral slits in the vast majority of cases but he will occasionally use sagittal slits for certain areas of the scalp. He does not use punches or slots because these methods leave some scarring in the recipient area. 

The lateral slit technique was pioneered by Dr. Jerry Wong over 10 years ago and Dr. Nakatsui was among the very first surgeons in the world to use this technique. He spent several months training with Dr. Wong and Dr. Hasson in Vancouver before bringing the technique to Edmonton. It offers several advantages over sagittal slits and is used routinely by Dr. Nakatsui, especially when dense packing. To learn more about the lateral slit technique, click here


Getting a hair transplant was one of the best decisions that I made. For me it definitely improved my appearance, and my level of confidence. I would highly recommend to anyone who is concerned with baldness. It is painless and very affordable. I have an older brother, who is two years older than I am and unfortunately has the same hairline. After my hair transplant, I look ten years younger than he does. – A.K.

There are two common hair transplant techniques available today: follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Both of these techniques are offered by Dr. Nakatsui and each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages.
