And there are many misconceptions about FUE hair transplantation.
This is due to a lack of understanding of the concepts related to the FEU, and the main issues that are usually overlooked.
1. Quality control
After downloading, the bellows are passed to the assistant, who analyzes each downloaded bellows. This protects the control over the least possible damage to the bellows. The surgeon throughout the treatment includes control over the entire team to achieve the best results. The surgeon also has control over the transplants and can pick up those that give benefits to the patient by adjusting the depth and the extraction angle of the bellows during operation. The patient stays in the treatment room together with the assistants, which makes it possible for them to get to know and observe the work process.
The fact is that the procedure performed with the FUT method may result in a significant strip in the area of the donor scar. In addition, if the patient has a tight head skin, this chance increases. However, in the procedure performed with the FUE method, there is no such danger. Scars after collecting the hair follicles heal within a few days. In treatments, we use modern punches with a diameter of 0.75-1.00 mm, which also affects the minimal traces after the procedure. Small spots after collecting a flat are visible only when the hair is completely shaved.
3. Placement of transplants
Historically, the FUT procedure was promoted as a method that has better results due to the presence of fat in the lower part of the grafts. However, studies have shown that the growth of strains is not dependent on the presence of fat. The hair follicles obtained in the FUE method have a coating of connective tissue and fat.
