Hair transplantation with micro-FUE is a method in which the hair follicles are taken one by one from the donor area and transplanted on the bald area. The procedure takes about 6 hours, depending on the number of follicles transplanted until a natural result is obtained, no scars, no stitches, and 98% success!
The donor area – the area from which the transplant recipient’s self-donation is taken. Hair follicles are extracted from the nape of the neck and the ears helix. In these growth areas, the genetic component of the hair is not affected by Alopecia diseases, and therefore it is resistant to hair loss. This unique DNA actually ensures that the bald area is fed with follicles that are durable to hair loss.
With a special device, the follicles are being extracted one at a time while keeping the root content and the genetic material that it carries. This procedure is being done under local injectable anesthetics and constant patting of liquids on the skin. This process is called FUE.
A donor area which considered to be full and healthy is one that usually contains 25-35k follicles. From this area, 2500 – 5500 will be extracted. A professional work of extraction will not leave the donor area with bold gaps, it should quickly heal, and the area’s appearance returns to its former state. We cannot extract an unlimited number of implants as it won’t grow again into hairs. The hair fullness of the donating area must be taken into consideration as well.
Performing this procedure in a professional and experienced manner will ensure fast recovery of the area and, in some cases, will allow the area to be a donor area again for further transplantation (After a minimum period of 18 months). The next step is a preparation before the implantation procedure, including careful manual sorting of the follicular units. We make sure that each unit is not broken or damaged. Only complete and healthy grafts will be applied to the recipient’s area.
This stage includes 2 parts:
It is the most critical part of the stage and requires high aesthetic skills. It will be only by our hair transplant expert and not by the paramedical team.
This part determines the transplantation’s overall look. The expertise aesthetic vision and experience allow him to “draw” the direction of the implantation, the canals angles, the depth, and their density. This determines the positioning of the hair in the next stage.
At this stage, follicles inserted into the canals created in the previous step. This technical action requires high skilled pair of hands and agility. It is the longest stage of the process and requires great patience both from the patient and the paramedical team. At this point, 25k-50k of follicles are inserted into their new canals.
