In FUE technique; The hair follicles are removed from the hairy area between the two ears by the two donor sites and between the two ears, and by the cylindrical micro-inserts of 0.7 and 0.8 mm in diameter. The removal of hair follicles is carried out by a device called a manual punch or micro motor. Hair units removed from here are called grafts. One graft contains two or three hair cells.
Hair transplantation with FUE technique is a procedure under local anesthesia. Patients do not feel any pain except for a few needle pain that was shot for local anesthesia before starting to practice. The numbness develops pretty fast. During the application, the patient is conscious, can monitor the procedures or chat with the doctor. According to the frequency of hair follicles in the donor area and the needs of the patient, in a session, 2000-75000 grafts, ie 5000 to 18750 hair follicles can be transferred. If the graft counts are high and hair transplantation is done manually, the session can be divided into two days. According to the patient’s hair thickness and need, how much graft will be needed after the doctor makes a hair analysis on the patient.
