Best Candidates for Hair Restoration
Hair loss can be caused by many different reasons and the most common reason is androgenic alopecia. This is a genetic hair loss and the hormonal imbalance affects both men and women. When men suffer from androgenic alopecia, they experience hair loss while women going through it, experience hair thinning. Although the condition begins with the onset of puberty, you may not see its effects until a few years later.
Contrary to belief, hair loss is not an issue just for men. There is sufficient data to show that women are struggling as much with hair loss as men even though for them, it begins with hair thinning. Hair loss when it affects women is more diffusive and unfortunately, it affects their self-confidence in addition to their appearance. We, at Gabel Hair Restoration, understand how hair loss plays an important role in affecting the self-image of a person and that is why we are dedicated to getting you the best results from your procedure.

Techniques of Hair Transplant
Modern hair transplantation is a refined process and Dr. Gabel transfers hair follicles from the well-chosen donor site to the thinning or balding recipient site. Usually, this donor site is chosen from an area at the back of the scalp that is abundant in healthy hair. These hair follicles are then transferred to the area that is experiencing balding or thinning. Several factors contribute to the success of your hair restoration procedure including the density of the follicular unit and its precise placement. When you consult an experienced surgeon like Dr. Gabel, you can be assured of natural and permanent results. Here are the procedures our patients from Vancouver can choose from:
- Follicular Unit Graft Preparation
- Graft Placement and Insertion
- Hairline and Crown Design
- High-Density Graft Placement
