What is the hair transplant method fue?
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technical hair transplantation is a grafting technique one by one using a fine micro-punch (0.7 to 0.9 mm in diameter depending on the quality of the hair). hair) directly from the donor area to the back of the head at the crown. This technique makes it possible to obtain several thousand grafts of 1 to 3 hairs each, which will then be reimplanted one by one as tightly as possible to bring maximum density to the recipient area. This procedure is done under local anesthesia, it is painless and the result is definitive.
Progress of the steps of the operation,
The donor zone (zone where the grafts are extracted) is limited:
The number of follicles to be taken is determined according to the age of the patient, the potential evolution of his baldness, the limited capacity or not of the donor area ... The goal is not to extract at all costs a dramatic number of grafts, regardless of the patient's age, alopecia profile, or donor It is necessary to pay attention to the arguments put forward on the Internet sites and in some centers which are often catchy but do not reflect reality!
Grafting of grafts is done manually or motorized at the level of the previously shaved crown. Thus grafts are often extracted directly containing 1 to 2 hairs each (ultra-micro-grafts) which are stored temporarily in a preservation solution before being implanted on the recipient areas. The sampling stage is the longest, it lasts several hours for several thousand grafts
The follicles that are extracted from the donor area DO NOT FOLLOW in the donor area! (or in very small quantities). Each patient has a limited stock of hair that can be collected and implanted on several sessions of hair transplants. It is therefore necessary that the doctor analyzes well the progression of the baldness of the patient in order to possibly envisage other sessions in the future.
This step consists in producing on the bald area, numerous small incisions approximately 1 millimeter wide called slots or slits using a micro-sapphire blade. The incisions should be made by the specialist hair transplant specialist who knows the acts for the depth of the incisions, the density of the incisions, the meaning of regrowth of each bald area.
Sapphire FUE hair transplant is related to the technique of canal opening known Incisions in the recipient area on the scalp. The procedure is performed by special sapphire blades with super fine needles.
This way of making the tiny and very small slits will have the same size as the diameter of the grafts.
Rather than into slits, the hair follicles are transplanted into three-dimensional channels created with very fine needles.
The advantages of using Sapphire Blades:
The incisions on the scalp made with a sapphire blade are much slender comparing to the incisions made with standard instruments. The result can be accurate clean and minimal scalp trauma which speeds the healing and lessen scarring.
Due to the composition of Sapphire knife Sapphire blades or Sapphire knifes from single crystal, synthetic sapphires (Al2O3), it won’t have metal ion reactivity.
The precision of the incision as this instrument is clear and allows the surgeon to see the tissue under the knife’s edge.
