Step 1: Preparation for the procedure
At the beginning of the treatment, the hair is first shaved in the donor area to approximately 1 mm length. This is done immediately before the procedure. In the case of women or even some male clients, the hair is cut at the back of the head (donor area) so that the shaved area can not be seen after the transplant. To do this, the hair must be long enough to cover the shaved area. This is will be explained in the consultation.
Step 2: Harvesting the hair follicle groups
After the local anesthetic has been gently applied on the back of the head, the painless harvesting (extraction) of the grafts can begin. This is done with a hollow needle (diameter approx. 1mm), which is very sharp at the tip and is inserted superficially into the skin so that it does not get into contact with the roots. At the same time, the entire graft is sucked out by a vacuum without damage. This method is the most gentle because the roots are not damaged. A gentle withdrawal contributes 50% to the survival rate of the grafts (to the other 50% in step 5).
Step 3: Preparation of the bald patches (“Aesthetics”)
Now the local anesthetic is administered into the reception area. Thereafter, the canals are prepared for the hair root groups to be transplanted. These must have a certain depth and thickness and the growth direction and natural hair color must be considered. This is done with individually adapted cannulas. Aesthetics plays a very important role in this step since the distribution, growth direction and arrangement of the hair follicle groups are influenced.
Step 4: Implanting the hair root groups
With a very fine tweezer bent at the tip, the hair root groups are implanted into the receiving canals. This is done exclusively by our hair transplant surgeon. It is very complex and requires a great deal of patience and skill. The hair roots are very sensitive and can be irrevocably destroyed if the tweezers are not properly handled or simply squeezed into the receiving canals. Therefore, the remaining 50% for the survival rate of the hair roots depend on this step.
Quality not quantity
The first place to go to for most customers regarding hair transplantation is the internet. For many suppliers, the number of grafts taken is the basis for the lump sum. But the mere number says nothing about the quality of the operation. The grafts’ survival rate is far more important.
With the FUE technique (single hair method) the grafts are taken individually by the doctor. In the ideal case the doctor should reimplant them. The average number of grafts that our hair surgeon takes in one day and then inserted into the reception area is about 1200. The longer the grafts remain outside the tissue and the more improperly they are removed and transplanted, the lower the survival rate. The donor area is limited and grafts taken there do not grow again.
