What is hair transplantation with the FUE method?
FUE – Follicular Unit Extraction is a new technique developed after the FUT method. In the FUE method, the hair follicles are collected one by one from the nape area with the FUE extractor and placed in a special solution in groups of 100. Once the collected grafts have reached the desired number, the channels are opened according to the natural angle and depth of the hair with the side slit method in the area to be transplanted, and the collected hair follicles are placed in these channels one by one.
What are the steps of the FUE hair transplant method?
Haircut and local anesthesia:
First, in order to extract the hair follicles from the nape one by one with the micro motor, the hair in this area should be shortened by 0-3mm. After shaving, the area is numbed with pre-anesthesia (DERMOJET) followed by local anesthesia.
Hair Root Hair Removal:
The individual's grafts are extracted by micro motor to receive the hair follicles in the area to be transplanted.
At this stage, it is very important that the hair follicles are not damaged.
Collected hair follicles are placed in groups of 100 in a special solution.
Opening of the channels:
With the doctor, the front hair area is determined for the area to be transplanted, the determined area is anesthetized with local anesthesia, after the diameter of the hair follicles and the depth. The grafts are studied, the channels are opened in a lateral slit specially prepared for the reception of the hair follicles.
Opening the channel is the most important part of the hair transplant process.
Why is channel opening so important?
- The diameter of the open channels must be equal to the grafts to be implanted.
- The angles of the open channels should be the same as the angles of the hair before shedding.
- The diameter and length of the grafts received must be adjusted in relation to the canals.
Placement of hair roots:
Hair follicles taken from the donor area are placed one by one into the open channels.
