FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a top hair transplant in Turkey technique which is very popular today. It involves using a hollow micromotor-driven rotating needle for the FUE process. Surgeons can focus on extracting in the direction from where the hair grows, without having to turn the hollow needle.
With the use of the micromotor, transplantation of more than 4,500 grafts is possible, while working rapidly and causing minimal stress to patients. The most important use of the micromotor is in extracting samples. Here, you can find out more about how micromotor works in FUE hair transplantation.
Shaving of the Hair
The first stage involves shaving the hair in the doctor’s clinic using sterilised equipment and solutions. In every top hair clinic such as SHIFT Hair Transplant, doctors and medical staff will take care to prevent infection in this area due to exposure to bacteria from non-sterilised equipment or other sources.
Once the shaving is complete, the operation will begin. Experts will first apply local anaesthesia to the area, lasting for around 10-15 minutes during the surgery. Patients will remain conscious, but they should not experience any pain during the surgery.
Extraction of Samples
Following the local anaesthesia, the extraction of hair grafts is the first stage of hair transplant in Turkey. The micromotor tool picks individual stems of hair from the skin around the ears and nape of the neck, and it is possible to extract as many as 3,500 to 4,000 grafts in this process. After extraction, the team will preserve these grafts in a special solution in a cold spot. This process takes about two to three hours to complete in top hair restoration facilities such as SHIFT Hair Transplant.
After the extraction of the hair stem and the collection of the sample, surgeons will carry out canalisation to implant the extracted grafts. The shafts of hair have to be dense and thin, and this canalisation process will direct them into their place.
The last stage involves the replacement of the extracted hair in open shafts with canalisation. A hair transplant in Turkey with a micromotor tool takes about three hours, but after this patients can return to their homes as no hospital stay is necessary after the surgery. As the transplanted hair stays outside the body for a limited amount of time, this is an advantage during the growth phase.
