Follicular units are extracted one by one through manual punch, during the extraction; follicular unit structure, graft quality and suitability are controlled. Evaluation and feedback are important parts of this process. Grafts (once the follicular unit is extracted it is called “a graft”) are separated according to certain parameters and the operation goes on according to the plan done before the surgery.
With Manuel FUE technic it is possible to do the extraction without harming the grafts and perceive the angles in the right way so grafts to be extracted can be chosen during the process.
MANUEL FUE / UNIQUE TECHNIQUE
A combination of operation technics about; extraction of follicles, incisions and implantation, born through the interaction of experiments and results throughout years.
This technic allows us to achieve operations with maximum success level with a better result. Thanks to Unique Technic we can preserve the donor area and this technic is used only in the Institute of Hair Clinic.
ABOUT THE OPERATION
For the operations in which we are going to work on the front line, after the inspections and measurements of patient’s hair and skin, the areas with original single hair follicles are determined.
The grafts taken from temporal and parietal areas are usually preferred in order to ensure a naturel looking front line.
Head shape, skin type, hair features can vary from one patient to another which may cause different hair direction and angles.
Follicular unites are quite delicate this is why we prefer to use this technic which allows tactile sensation, in order to have a vision and to be able to see the angles we use polarized light loop.
For the operations in which we are going to work on the middle line and the vertex (top of the head), grafts are usually taken from the occipital area since the thickness of hairs and the density is higher.
First, local anesthesia is applied to the extraction area, then the follicles are taken out from the skin by using manual punch and polarized light loop.
Once the grafts are out of the skin they are put into the hypotermosol + ATP solution to keep them alive and healthy.
Grafts are classified according to the plan made before the surgery and also depending to their features, until the implantation of the grafts, they are kept at 4 degrees Celsius, our main goal is to keep the grafts tissue integrity so the grafts waiting time outside the skin is kept in minimum.
Before the incisions, local anesthesia is applied on the recipient area, and the incisions are made with the lateral slit technique in accordance to patients’ natural hair direction and angles.
Finally, grafts are implanted in the incision area according to the plan.
The main goal of the hair transplant should be to have a natural and homogeneous result. In order to keep the homogeneity on the recipient and also on the donor area it is important to use all areas of the donor.
Manual Fue/Unique Technique even after several sessions the donor area will continue its density.
