Manual FUE Hair Transplant Turkey
Hair loss doesn’t discriminate. It happens to both men and women, no matter their age. Genetics plays the biggest role, but stress and various medical conditions and treatments can also play their part.
Luckily, there are different hair transplant solutions to stimulate the growth of natural hair, the most advanced being the FUE hair transplant method.
Thanks to technological developments, this method has become even more advanced. Instead of undergoing an automated procedure, you can now have a manual FUE hair transplant in Turkey.
What Is the Manual FUE Hair Transplant?
The Manual FUE hair transplant involves using a special surgical instrument called the manual punch to extract follicular units manually.
So, instead of using a micromotor tool that automatically makes round punches in the donor site for a follicular unit extraction, the surgeon performs the entire process manually.
How Is the Manual FUE Hair Transplant Performed?
After the surgeon inserts the so-called punch into the tool’s handle, they start rotating it back and forth between the thumb and forefinger while simultaneously pressing it into the scalp.
That way, the surgeon makes tiny round punches (with a diameter of 0.7-1.0 mm) in the donor area before using their forceps to gently extract the grafts once they reach the necessary level.
Once the surgeon prepares the grafts for transplantation, they manually insert the hair follicles into the recipient area using the same FUE technique..
Why Is the Manual Punch the Best Harvesting Technique in FUE Method?
There are several reasons why this advanced FUE method is the best harvesting technique.
The most important reason is better graft survival. When performing the procedure manually, the surgeon can evaluate the tissue resistance and determine the best angle and level for a successful graft extraction. That ensures the grafts root properly, and the transplanted hair stays in place.
Another reason is reducing the risk of transections and other follicular damage. Automated devices can accidentally cut follicular units or otherwise damage them due to friction, torsion, and heat. That’s not the case with the manual method.
This method also eliminates the thinning effect on the donor site. When extracted automatically, one graft can have up to four follicular units. When doing it manually, the surgeon can extract only one unit.
Since they manually control the process, they can also ensure no scarring and faster recovery.
What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of a Motorized Graft Extraction?
A motorized extraction enables extracting a larger number of grafts in less time. That means fewer sessions and less fatigue on the scalp.
Another benefit is the lower risk of human error since the process is automated.
However, because it’s automated, the surgeon doesn’t have full control of the process. They don’t have enough tactile feedback regarding the right angles and tissue resistance. That could potentially lead to follicular damage and require additional sessions.
As already mentioned, the motorized process also creates more friction, heat, and torsion that puts a lot of tension on the scalp and risks follicular damage
What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of the Manual Hair Transplantation?
The manual extraction provides the necessary tactile feedback that the surgeon needs to successfully harvest the grafts and ensure their high survival rate. There’s less heat, friction, and torsion, as the surgeon controls the tool’s rotations.
All of this leads to the successful outcome of the procedure.
However, extracting grafts manually comes with a few drawbacks. It’s more time-consuming and requires a lot more precision, which is why it’s also more expensive.
