FUE, hair transplantation

Painless, no visible scars, grafting large areas possible with mega sessions
Longer sessions than with STRIP, preliminary shaving of donor area

 

Everything you need to know about FUE hair transplant (Follicular Unit Excision) 

 

PRINCIPLES :

Transplanting micro-grafts (1 to 4 hair follicular units) from the donor area (back and sides of the head, spared by alopecia) to the recipient area, affected by alopecia.

Use of magnifying-glasses for the surgeon to work in augmented reality

 

SURGICAL PROCEDURE STEP BY STEP :

1. PREPARATION :

Prior shaving of the whole head, or only of the donor area :

Local anesthesia of the sampling area (donor area), with or without needle.

2. EXTRACTION OF GRAFTS:

Isolation of each graft to be removed : with a punch diameter 0.6 to 1.0 mm :

Extraction of each isolated graft : with micro-clamps

Preservation of the grafts in a special solution, until their implantation.

3. IMPLANTATION OF GRAFTS: (according to angle and direction of natural hair, after local anesthesia of the recepient area) :

Two techniques : 

  • Implantation in 2 steps: site preparation (micro incisions made with a micro scalpel or with a needle) and placement of grafts with micro-clamps or with non sharp (dull) implanter
  • Direct hair implantation (DHI) with an implanter pen (Choï) without prior incisions

 

 

ADDITIONAL DETAILS : 

Sequential method : Some surgeons repeat the 3 steps several times, to avoid keeping grafts too long out of the body

Incisions before extraction: some surgeons first make incisions before performing graft extraction

Special case of curly, frizzy, afro hair .

Duration : 4 hours to one day

Maximum number of transplanted grafts : One day: between 1500 and 4000 according to the FUE technique and according to the clinic ...Two or three days: up to 6000 grafts

Durable effects : after a first phase of grafts fall (normal), their regrowth occurs a 2 to 5 months later (full result after 10 to 12 months).
