What Are the Steps of FUE Hair Transplantation?

What occurs on a FUE hair transplant operation day?

Preparation for a hair transplant

After the images are taken, a last session is made with the cosmetic surgery specialist who will carry out the operation, and former conversations are reviewed and the hair transplant operation is deliberate.

Planning earlier than the hair transplant operation

Through the planning course of, the doctor makes a last assessment concerning the variety of hair follicles to be extracted, the variety of the hair shafts contained within the follicles and the thickness of the shafts. The websites of and the density of transplantation and the orientation of the hair shafts are decided by taking the affected person expectations into consideration. The compatibility between the specialist’s strategies and the person’s expectations is essential on this section. Being lifelike about what we will accomplish and the suitability of the affected person’s expectations represent the essence of a profitable hair transplant operation.

Planning the hairline

A profitable hair transplant operation requires a pure end result which isn’t noticeable to the individuals in reference to the person who undergoes the operation. And the hairline ought to be very delicately deliberate to be able to get hold of a pure trying hair transplant end result.

Expectations and strategies of the affected person ought to positively be listened whereas planning the hairline however the planning ought to be made in accordance with the individual’s present situation by taking the affected person’s brow construction and facial symmetry into consideration, with out absolutely concentrating on the earlier situation of the affected person. The hairline is decided by sustaining the symmetry with the assistance of the laser pointer machine particularly designed for this objective.

The hairline is the road that the furry scalp meets the brow. The hairline ought to match the opposite aesthetical parts of the face, ought to be deliberate at a handy stage and shouldn’t be created as a pointy straight line. A pure hairline is created as a symmetrical fragmented line with a triangular wavy kind. The follicles for use for creating the hairline ought to be these follicles which comprise a single and skinny hair shaft. Whereas a hairline created by sharply aligned hair follicles which comprise thicker hair shafts is noticeable to everyone after the operation, a wavy hairline deliberate with a slight dysfunction and created with these follicles which comprise a single hair shaft isn’t noticeable even to the rapid acquaintances of the person after the operation.

Taking step one proper: Is it potential to appropriate an inaccurately created hairline?

A major ratio of the sufferers who seek the advice of to us for a hair transplantation operation are these sufferers who usually are not happy with the outcomes of the hair transplantation operations they’ve undergone in different clinics. The hairline results of a hair transplantation operation carried out by an unqualified individual could also be irreparable. Correction of the incorrect hairline is probably the most difficult facet we expertise in such additional corrective operations. With such sufferers, corrective operations could be carried out by harvesting the too thick hair follicles inserted and inserting grafts containing a single hair shaft.

No one needs it to be obvious that they’ve undergone a hair transplant operation. So as to get hold of a pure end result, the hairline ought to be deliberate by a plastic surgeon specialised within the space, who has complete data about facial aesthetics and facial ratios, and who has carried out an enough variety of hair transplant operations to grasp the affected person’s expectations.


After all the things is deliberate and selections are made for the process, the affected person is ready for the operation. The person who will endure the hair transplantation operation will get a grade 1 haircut. No haircut is critical earlier than that stage.

If a small quantity of hair will likely be transplanted, FUE hair transplantation could be carried out by shaving skinny strips of hair with out having an entire haircut. On this method, the one who undergoes the hair transplantation operation can shortly proceed their social life with out demonstrating any change of their look.

Native anesthesia

After the haircut, a specifically ready native anesthesia combination is run to be able to have a painless hair transplantation operation that doesn’t damage the affected person or trigger bleeding.

Is hair transplantation a painful process?

Concerning the FUE hair transplantation, crucial concern of the sufferers is the reply to the query: “Will I endure any ache throughout hair transplantation?” Hair transplantation operations are amongst these interventions that present a excessive stage of affected person consolation. Only a delicate stage of ache is felt throughout native anesthesia injection at the start of the operation, and the remainder of the hair transplantation operation after this stage is completely painless.

Each particular person has a unique ache threshold. Whereas a affected person with the next ache threshold isn’t affected in any respect by the native anesthesia process that lasts about 1 minute, different individuals could have complaints of a light burning and stinging feeling. These anxious individuals with a decrease ache threshold can tolerate the scenario by saying that “I’ve ache however I can bear it.”

The extraction and assortment of hair follicles (follicular unit, graft)

The hair follicles on the location between the ears are genetically immune to thinning. FUE hair transplantation is carried out by the micromotor -a specifically designed microsurgical device- with out making any incisions or sutures. Hair follicles are individually faraway from the scalp through the use of the micropunches with diameters of Zero.6-Zero.9 mm inserted to the tip of the micromotor.

Extraction process is carried out below the magnifier gear through the use of the microsurgical method solely. Extraction is carried out throughout the limits of the scalp on the stage of the follicles. Because the extraction is proscribed to the extent of the scalp, the tissues positioned deeper get no hurt.

Essentially the most important level to be considered on this process is giving no hurt in any respect -not solely to the hair shafts but- to the totality of the hair follicles with the hair shafts they comprise, throughout the extraction. No hair shaft grows from a broken hair follicle which is transplanted. If the hair follicle (follicular unit) is broken, no hair will develop and the end result will likely be unsuccessful. If no hair grows after the hair transplantation operation, one of many predominant causes of this can be a careless extraction process carried out by an inexperienced individual.

Since no hair follicle types to exchange the broken hair follicle, a profitable hair transplantation operation is feasible provided that the donor website is used with full effectivity. For the entire assortment of every hair follicle individually, extraction ought to be carried out rigorously by a plastic surgeon.

The distribution of the utterly extracted hair follicles can also be important. The variety of the hair follicles ought to individually be calculated for these follicles that comprise one, two, three and 4 hair shafts. Extraction of the hair follicles that comprise three or 4 hair follicles as a lot as potential and avoiding these follicles containing solely a single hair shaft will result in a denser hair end result. Whereas 4000 hair follicles which comprise a single shaft correspond to 4000 hair shafts, 4000 hair follicles which comprise three shafts correspond to 12,000 hair shafts.

Extraction shouldn’t be thought of as a easy technical process. The diameter of the micropunch, the velocity of the micromotor, the orientation and the depth of the hair follicles, and the space between the extracted follicles ought to be evaluated individually for every affected person. At this stage, the extent of expertise and the talents of the plastic surgeon in addition to the standard of the technical gear come into play. On this context, we argue that ‘there aren’t any problems, there are sufferers’ and we make a separate analysis for each single affected person.

As well as, the overall variety of hair shafts focused for 4000 hair follicles is 10,000 hair shafts at a minimal. The extracted hair follicles are saved inside a particular nutritive answer in a cooled ambient to be able to preserve them alive.

Making the canals for inserting the hair follicles (Graft) throughout the hair transplantation

Making ready the recipient website is strictly the architectural plan of the process to be carried out. The extraction location, density and the depth of separate follicles, and the distribution of the follicles are decided on this section. After the canals are ready in accordance with this architectural plan, the transplantation nurse might want to stick with this plan solely. So long as the architectural plan is correctly ready, the ensuing construction from a professional labor will likely be dependable and aesthetical.

This architectural plan lays the foundations of a profitable hair transplant operation. That is the process which determines the orientation and density of the hair follicles and ensures a pure look.

The tactic of getting ready the canals and the gear used for this objective are extremely important. Hair transplant canals are made through the use of specifically designed blades (micro slit) with diameters of Zero.5 – Zero.eight mm. The width and size of the hair canals are deliberate by evaluating the extracted follicles individually.

The depth of the hair transplantation canals to be ready ought to go well with to the size of the hair follicles, the width of the canals ought to go well with to the thickness of the follicles to be inserted, and the orientation of the canals ought to go well with to the unique orientation of present hair. The canal to be ready ought to be as small as potential however it ought to nonetheless be extensive sufficient to permit for a clean insertion of the hair follicles. On this method, the nurse who performs the insertion can simply adapt the hair follicles to the canals and the blood circulation within the scalp doesn’t get disrupted. In consequence, the speed of hair progress from the transplanted hair follicles approximates 100%.

Undoubtedly no seen scar is left and a pure result’s obtained so long as the canals are ready cautiously. Equally, if the canals are ready in conformity with the orientation of hair, the lately rising hair could be combed within the desired course and it appears pure like the unique hair.

Essentially the most troublesome outcomes of an ill-planned hair transplantation operation embrace unsuitability of the hair to be combed within the desired course and the excessive noticeability of the transplantation. It’s extremely troublesome to vary the incorrect hair orientation to the correct orientation even with corrective operations. The looks of hair which is popularly described as paving stones or a grass head happens if the hair canals are made perpendicular or reverse to the orientation of hair or if an inappropriate distribution is made. As well as, incisions wider than enough result in noticeable canal scars on the backside of the hair shafts.

Whereas planning the hairline, the canals mustn’t observe a straight and sharp line; they need to quite be ready somewhat disorderly as a wavy line which supplies a extra pure look.

If an inaccurate architectural planning is made, the end result won’t be aesthetical and pure even when hair grows after a efficiently carried out transplantation. For all these causes, the hair insertion canals ought to be ready by an skilled plastic surgeon who’s specialised within the space with complete data.

Implantation of hair follicles

This contains the implantation of the hair follicles individually extracted by the FUE methodology into the hair canals ready. On this final section of hair transplant, the hair follicles are inserted on the applicable depth with the suitable angle with out giving any hurt to them. This process requires persistence and warning. The hair follicles ought to individually be inserted into each single canal with out skipping any of them.
