What are the FUE Hair Transplant Stages?
- Collectıng Haır Root Seeds
After the first examination and preparation stage, the areas where FUE hair transplantation will be applied are disinfected and anesthetized with local anesthesia to ensure a painless operation. This area is usually the nape area because the hair in the nape area is more resistant to shedding. Healthy and suitable hair follicle seeds from the determined donor area are started to be collected by means of very fine-tipped micro motors. It is very important to take these hair follicle seeds very carefully in order to be permanent in the next stage of the operation, so the collected hair follicle seeds should be the healthiest. At this stage, each hair follicle contains 2.7 hairs on average. According to the suitability of the donor area, an average of 2000-2500 hairs follicle seeds can be taken in a single session. The collected healthy hair root seeds are carefully kept in a special solution.
