How is a FUE Hair Transplant done?

FUE hair transplant With Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE harvesting, individual follicular units containing 1 to 4 hairs are removed under local anesthesia; this micro removal typically uses tiny punches of between 0.6mm and 1.0mm in diameter.

The surgeon then uses Sapphire to puncture the sites for receiving the grafts, placing them in a predetermined density and pattern, and angling the wounds in a consistent fashion to promote a realistic hair pattern. The technicians generally do the final part of the procedure, inserting the individual grafts in place.

The most important detail in the FUE hair transplant method is the experience of the doctor and the medical team. In order for the patient to have a natural appearance, it is necessary to manage the channel opening process in the best way.
