What type of procedure is it? Describe the procedure
FUE technique and Sapphire technique are used. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique is a hair transplant method in which the doctor extracts the follicular units of hair from the donor area of the patient’s head. In the Fue technique, a comfortable procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Sapphire FUE; is the name of the technique used for opening the micro-channels in hair transplantation. The micro-channels are opened with sapphire blades obtained from natural sapphire crystals. It is a method that does not damage the skin tissue. Since less damage is done to the tissue in hair transplantation with sapphire, the bleeding is less and faster recovery time.
Describe the process
Hair Transplantation Steps:
Right diagnosis and planning: Right planning is the key to successful hair treatment. And while planning the treatment, the essential step is to determine the cause of your hair loss.
The surgeon or an assistant will shave and cleanse the donor area.
After shaving and cleansing, they will mark the scalp and apply local anesthesia.
Once the anesthesia is administered, the surgeon will begin harvesting hair grafts.
Extraction of follicles carefully: This step is crucial; the extraction of grafts should be done meticulously without causing them any damage. In FUE techniques, the grafts are extracted one by one.
The extracted hair grafts are prepared for transplant.
Storing harvested grafts in good condition: The harvested grafts are preserved in a storage solution for optimal results. Once all the hair follicles are extracted, then the implantation process is conducted. So, at Design Hair Transplant, our teams perform the FUE method after eliminating all the hair follicles carefully without causing any damage to them.
Placement of Hair Follicles: It is another crucial step as the outcome of the hair transplant surgery will be largely dependent on how the grafts are placed. The angle, direction, and alignment of the hair follicles during the implantation process are done correctly by our team for achieving successful and laudable hair results. The surgeon will cleanse, mark, and numb the recipient area with local anesthesia. Once the recipient site is numbed, the surgeon will transplant the hair grafts into the recipient site.
The results of hair transplant surgery: enhance your appearance and self-confidence.
Notes: The patient should rest for 3 days after surgery. The next process is the hair washing stage. An application on how to do it will be shown or practiced by our experts. After 10 days, the patient’s head is crusted. Almost all of the hair is falling out. After shedding, the hair grows back on its own for up to 6 months. The whole process is completed at the end of 1 year.
