Since FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method is not a surgical operation, it is preferred by experts and patients. The hair follicles are taken and transplanted one by one for this method. How is hair transplant is realized with FUE method?
The hair to be taken for hair transplant operation will be shaved to be very short (0 or 1 mm).
The grafts are taken with surgical devices which conduct millimetric processes called micro motors from the neck area between two ears. The grafts taken are placed in a container filled with special solution for protection.
We determine the area for hair transplant and front hairline with the opinions of our experts and the request of our patient. The channels to transplant the hair follicles are opened for hair transplant.
The number of hair follicles taken and the number of the channels to be opened must be same. The angle and direction of the channels to be opened is very important for a natural appearance. Therefore, the most important phase of the operation must be conducted by experience and rigorous actions of the expert who is opening the channels. The last phase of the operation is the transplantation operation.
A hair transplant operation realized with FUE method takes between 6 and 8 hours. The amount of grafts to be transplanted in this period is between 3000 and 7000 grafts; meaning 9000 to 21000 hair follicles. While a single operation may be sufficient for the needs and requests of the patient, two operations may be conducted.
