Following Steps are
involved in Stem Cell hair transplant procedure:
Donor area preparation: The surgeon will
start by shaving or trimming the donor area. Marking donor
area is also important for efficient graft harvesting.
Administering anaesthesia (Donor Area): To
make the follicular unit extraction process virtually
painless, local anaesthesia is administered to the donor
Graft extraction: Once the area has been
marked and numbed, the surgeon proceeds to graft harvesting.
A specially designed automated punch tool is used for
extracting hair follicles one by one.
Graft preparation: the grafts thus extracted
are then trimmed carefully under a powerful microscope to
obtain follicular units of the desired size.
Administering anaesthesia (recipient site):
Before working on the recipient area, local anaesthesia is
administered there as well to make the process virtually
Recipient area preparation: the surgeon then
creates tiny holes at the recipient site in an aesthetic
manner at specific angles. The direction of these holes will
determine the direction of transplanted hairs.
Graft insertion: like other hair
transplantation techniques, the last step of Stem Cell FUE is
also inserting grafts carefully into the tiny incisions.
