Micro FUE Hair Transplantation technique is one of the most advanced hair transplantation methods among the hair transplantation techniques used today. The best hair transplant centers use the Micro FUE method. Micro FUE technique can be written in different ways such as microfue, microfue, micro fue, micro fue. Micro FUE is a more advanced, special and sensitive application of the classical FUE hair transplantation method. In the classical FUE technique, grafts are taken with 1-1.2 mm diameter tips (thicker), usually without hand power and magnification. The hair strands in the grafts contain 3-5 pieces and more skin tissue. If too many grafts are taken with this method, there is a risk of punctate scars on the back of the head. Even if hair transplantation centers in Istanbul use the Micro FUE hair transplantation method, there may be changes in the results depending on the experience and application method of the team applying the method. It cannot be expected that every doctor and every hair transplant center will have the same successful results with Micro FUE Hair Transplantation. There are many details to be applied in the technique and everyone’s experience and ability is different.
As in the FUE technique, in the micro FUE technique, firstly, how much hair will be planted in the areas where the hair will be transplanted is calculated. The front hairline is drawn. The back area of the head where the hair will be taken is determined and marked. Hair follicles and hair grafts containing very little skin are taken one by one with a micromotor and microtips with a diameter of 0.6-0.8 mm. Since the area is completely numb with the effect of local anesthesia and the tips are thin, it is not felt at all and bleeding does not occur. The field is dry. Since the process is done with very thin tips, it is essential to see the field under 3 times magnification with an eye microscope. Although it may seem easy to take the grafts, it is the part of the procedure that requires the most skill and experience. Hair micro-grafts are very sensitive structures and should not be damaged during the extraction process. For this reason, the most experienced member of the hair transplant team performs this procedure. Micro FUE is a technique that requires special experience.
While the grafts are being taken, they are aligned and counted at the same time. Depending on the size of the area to be transplanted and the density of the hair on the back of the head, around 2500-4000 (sometimes 4500-5000) micrografts are taken quickly and easily in one session. Depending on the skill and experience of the person performing the procedure, it takes 2-3 hours to get around 3000 grafts. In the meantime, the person is in a side-lying position and is very comfortable. A short break can be taken at this stage in Micro FUE hair transplantation. The patient can eat and walk for a while if he/she wants. The second stage of the procedure, namely planting the grafts, is even more convenient and comfortable as the patient will be in a flat or semi-sitting position. The process after micro FUE hair transplantation is the same as other hair transplantation methods. Hair transplant doctors share detailed information on how to protect and wash hair. At this stage, it is enough to follow the doctor’s recommendations. The growth of the transplanted hair takes place in the natural process. New hair starts to grow in 3 months and increases in 6 months. At the end of 1 year, the real results emerge. After the procedure, the hair can be lengthened and shaped as desired.
