How is hair transplantation with your own hair (grafts) done?

Hair transplant surgery involves transplanting your own hair (grafts) from the donor area, where they are present in large numbers, in bare areas of the head or beard, mustache, and others. Follicles from donor zones, the so-called “permanent hair” zones, are always healthy and retain their normal anatomical and physiological properties almost to the end of human life. After hair transplantation, the follicles continue to function normally, and normal healthy hair grows from them. This phenomenon is the basis of an effective method of hair restoration with alopecia.

A unit of a donor material used for hair transplantation and consisting of several or one hair follicles is called a hair transplant or graft. Grafts are transplants obtained by cutting small pieces of skin from the hair (1-3, 4) from a seized skin flap (strip-method or surgery) or a beam of hair extracted by the FUE machine method. When using a patchwork fence method, a skin flap with hair follicles is first cut out, and then separate grafts are already extracted from it by tweezers.

Grafts obtained by fencing with the FUE method are a follicular union of the hair, which allows you to evenly distribute the transplanted hair to the places of baldness on the scalp and get the most natural result. They represent the nature of the created group of hair follicles, consisting of 1-3 or 4 hair roots. With this method, the operating physician extracts each graft individually with a special device (piercer), which does not leave linear scars.
