Follicular unit extraction (FUE technique) is a hair transplant technique with excellent results, a very fast and minimally invasive recovery.
Due to the large number of benefits and advantages it possesses, it is considered the best hair transplant technique.
Below we describe in detail what a hair transplant is like in our medical center.
Once the patient arrives at the medical center, the person responsible for the capillary area will be waiting to accompany him and indicate where the surgical area is. Once there, you will have a few minutes to change and prepare for the intervention.
The nurse in charge of accompanying the doctor throughout the procedure will receive the patient in the operating room. The doctor will explain to the patient as a detail how the operation will be, which consists of two parts: extraction and implantation.
Before starting the transplant, a few photographs will be taken to compare the final result of the surgery with the patient's appearance before starting the intervention and be able to compare it with the final result. Of course, patient privacy is always maintained.
Medication indicated to avoid and be able to control possible infections (Antibiotic prophylaxis) is supplied. The extraction and implantation phases can last from two to four hours, depending on the follicular units to be implanted.
According to the tastes of the patient and the suggestion of the doctor, in a pre-operative consultation a pre-design will have been carried out to achieve a perfect and natural result. In the operating room, the design that was agreed upon is redone and drawn in the receiving area.
The anesthesia used will be local, therefore, the patient will remain awake throughout the intervention and will not run any type of risk. It is applied by zones, the anesthesia is instantaneous and painless. The patient is asked if he perceives pain during surgery.
Once the donor area has been chosen, which will be the lateral or posterior part of the scalp, and the anesthesia has been injected, we will remove the follicular units from the patient's head, being able to rest while resting, since due to the anesthesia you will not feel pain.
Throughout the intervention, an exact control of the total number of hairs is carried out; first a counter counts the follicular units and then a nurse counts the total number of hairs that each follicular unit has to keep track of what was extracted.
The rest time will vary between 30 or 45 minutes depending on the duration of the procedure. In this break the patient can make a short phone call or eat something light.
In this stage, the follicles are grafted one by one in the recipient area of the patient's head and performed under local anesthesia as in the previous phase. It is done with Implanter to give the correct direction, depth and angle.
Once all the surgery is finished, photographs are taken again with the different perspectives to check the significant change after the operation and the new appearance or image of the patient.
The patient must follow a few steps for the survival and care of the new hair. Therefore, the patient will be explained a series of instructions regarding care, medication, hair washing, evolution, graft growth and possible side effects.
Our way of working is based on the dedication to want to do the FUE Technique well.
The commitment of the team is to ensure that each and every one of the phases that make up the protocol of action is respected in each surgery.
The daily work helps us to grow, we are aware that patients demand quality surgeries and in our hand is to give them the result they want.
