How is transplantation done with the FUE technique?

In the FUE method, hair transplantation is performed in four basic steps. These:

  1. The hairs in the donor area are shortened to 2 mm in length before the procedure.
  2. Hair follicles are removed with a special surgical instrument (0.5-0.9 mm diameter needles).
  3. Channels are opened with 0.8-0.9 mm diameter cylindrical tools.
  4. Hair follicles taken from the donor area are placed in the desired area.

How much transplantation can be done with the FUE technique?

  • The normal frequency in the scalp is 70-100 follicular units per square centimeter.
  • When hair density decreases by 50%, hair loss becomes noticeable.
  • Adequate hair density is achieved by planting 35 to 50 follicular units per square centimeter.
  • Depending on the structure of the hair in some people, up to 65 follicular units may be needed for desired results.
  • Things to consider in the FUE technique!
  • Roots should be removed without damage.
  • Hair follicles must be planted in the right direction.
  • After the procedure, the patient should pay attention to the warnings.

How many transplants can be done per day with the FUE technique?

  • Experienced, expert teams can transplant 2,000 to 3,000 grafts.
  • If the patient’s neck is very dense and the need is high, a total of 4,000 -5,000 grafts can be transplanted two days in a row.
  • If necessary, the second FUE operation can be performed after 3 months at the earliest.
