The procedure is performed exclusively by surgeons. Auxiliary staff or nurses DO NOT participate in any phase of the procedure, only assisting the surgeon which is very important when it comes to quality control.
Rarely are there more than 2000 follicles or grafts transplanted in one day. In the majority of cases and for reasons of quality, there are only 2000 grafts transplanted, thereby guaranteeing the survival in a situation that is optimum for the follicular units.
During the procedure the follicles or grafts are transplanted into the receptor areas (bald or depopulated areas) after extraction from the epidermis. The grafts are transplanted using the IMPLANTER, which allows the surgeon to control the angle of insertion and growth of the newly transplanted hairs, always imitating the angle and direction of the patient’s natural hair. The use of the IMPLANTER also makes it possible for the surgeon to be in direct control of the depth to which the new hairs are transplanted. We use implanters from 0.7 mm to 1 mm.
Each procedure lasts between 8 and 12 hours. Fatigue is minimum as the procedure is divided up into 2 or 3 parts, with enough breaks in between.
