The latest hair transplantation technique Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique is the newest and best technique in hair transplantation. FUE is a technique which provides success with natural results while collecting and transplanting hair follicles.
Hair transplantation coordinator Engin Sönmez,’’ Hair transplantation is performed by collecting the hair follicles which are healthy and transplanting them into the hairless area by special techniques.Since 2006, hair transplantation with FUE technique has shown that the procedure is very fast and simple.
All institutions which use this technique headed to FUT technique from FUE technique. In FUE technique,the hair follicles are collected from the hairs,which one by one, between 2 ears by using a 0.7 and 0.8 mm cylindrical micro-tip.This process is done by a device called manual punch or micro motor and the hair units are called grafts.’’ he said.
Engin Sönmez has announced that 1 graft includes 2 or 3 hair cells.In addition to this,Sönmez indicated,’’ Hair transplantation with FUE method is performed with local anesthesia.There is no pain except the needle pain which is injected as the local anesthesia before starting the procedure.The anesthesia in the area occurs fast and during the application, the patient can watch the process as the patient is conscious.When the number of grafts is high and the hair transplantation is performed manually,the session can be divided into 2 days.The doctor decides how much graft he will transplant after performing the hair analysis according to the hair thickness and demand of the person who will have the hair transplantation.’’ Hair transplantation performed by FUE method does not leave a scar but white spots may occur in the donor site, in the hairless areas which are shorter than 1 mm’’ he adds. Sönmez continues ‘’The scars will not be visible when the hairs which are around these areas, start to grow.Therefore,FUE method is expressed as a process which does not leave a scar.When this method was used with manual punch at the beginning, the number of collected grafts in 1 day was less than now.Because hair transplantation required a lot of grafts and this situation also extended the time of the process.On the other hand, the costs were increasing.After that,when micro-motor punch was preferred, too many grafts were collected in less time.
