The maximum grafts we will obtain from the donnor area will be determined by the density and quality of each donor area. If the patient needs more than 4000 grafts, we will divide the surgery in two, so the donor area can recovery from one surgery to the other.
We do not pull out more than 2000 grafts per day, in order to avoid the patient from suffer an extreme fatigue, as well as the medical staff.
We have learned from our experience that smaller surgeries do not have good results. We make an accurate diagnosis of the total amount of grafts for each patient. If the patients decides to do a smaller surgery, we do not guarantee the final result.
As we also perform eyebrows transplants, we can obtain around 100 grafts in these cases. These are the smallest surgeries we perform.
FUE technique is a hair transplant procedure in which grafts are obtained one by one from the donor area with a micropunch (0.75 mm diameter). We carry out this phase obtaining this grafts homogeneously, so there is not any area more affected. The scars left by Fue technique are barely perceptible when the patient cuts his hair very short, and will not be visible with long hair.
If the final quantity of grafts does not exceed 1500, we can perform the flap technique, in which small flaps are shaved. The grafts will be obtained from these shaved flaps, and the rest of the hair will cover this areas.
It can be done only if the patient has long hair, so there is enough length to cover these flaps.
