A painless numbing injection will be made in the donor area (back of the head) and the surgeon will prepare each graft to be transferred to the recipient area minimising noticeable thinning of the hair in the donor area.
The assisting technicians will then carefully extract and arrange the grafts for transplantation. The grafts are counted, prepared for transplantation, arranged in groups and cooled. Certain drugs are used to increase graft survival rate.
We use a safe, sequential graft harvesting technique that allows to preserve all collected biological material!
We extract grafts only by hand, without the use of any electromechanical devices (graft harvesters) because they are more traumatic for the donor area skin.
Using the hand extraction technique, the surgeon defines the depth of incision for each graft making up to 3—4 micropunching moves. This level of control cannot be achieved with the mechanical technique.
