The Tools of FUE
Professionals can use many different types of tools for FUE hair transplants. Dr. Golio has various advanced tools that he uses for the FUE procedure.
FUE hair transplantation can occur manually. However, it requires a highly skilled hair restoration team to do the job. Also, it may take a long time to harvest a maximum graft count of under 1,000. The exact number of grafts also depends on many variables. These factors include the length angle of the hair under the scalp.
When done manually, professionals must also place a limit on harvesting grafts. FUE aims to extract follicular units as intact as possible. Another crucial element that can affect the success of FUE is the survivability of these hair grafts. The hair transplant surgeon must ensure that the hair follicles remain intact during extraction.
If the follicular units get accidentally cut during the extraction, a high chance exists that they will not survive. Therefore, the FUE hair transplant will be a failure.
A follicular unit transplantation (FUT) procedure involves strip-harvesting of the follicular units. It typically guarantees a large amount of non-transected hair grafts. However, the FUE procedures have a high chance of transecting grafts. Therefore, the grafts will not be able to be used for transplants.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Golio will examine your hair. He will tell you how many grafts he can collect per session.
