Nowadays, hair loss is a serious problem for both men and women. What is the FUE sowing method of hair transplantation?
Follicular Unit Transplantation is a planting method commonly used in the 1990s, in which hair follicles are taken as a donor band, which is open in the area to be sown. FUE has become an almost unused method with the advancement of technology today. In our time, this method is preferred by people who have different reasons or special circumstances. This method began to be applied in medical technology in 2002.
Applying The FUE Method
The FUE and FUT methods that are accepted in the field of hair transplantation are the two basic methods. The difference between the FUE and FUT methods is that the roots to be planted are collected in the donor area. The way the hair roots gather from the region of the neck, which is called the donor zone, makes these methods separate from each other.
In the FUE method, local anesthesia is applied to the area of the donor site (the nek) prior to the start of the hair follicle collection process, and this area becomes numb. In this way, it is prevented that the person feels pain during the operation. A piece of rectangular skin, about 15 cm x 2 cm, is taken from the donor area by cutting. The size of the section to be cut may vary depending on the amount of hair root desired.
The hair density of the person is also the factors that will affect the size of the area to be cut.
The roots present in the part of skin taken in the region of the neck are subjected to a delicate process. These grafts, which are separated from the pieces of skin, are carefully and correctly placed in containers called petri dishes. The open area in the neck area is covered with an aesthetic and wrapped seam. A recovery is achieved within a period of about a month. However, a horizontal suture mark will remain in the neck area after healing.
The main disadvantage of this method is that the trace of the point remains after healing. Seeding will begin after graft collection. The area to be sown is treated with local anesthesia and the canal is opened in this area until the number of grafts is removed. These channels are the holes that are open in the size of the needle head where the roots are inserted. Then these roots are placed in the canal and the application of the hair transplant is complete.
