What Is A Follicular Unit?
We all know what hair follicles are. But many people don’t realize that hair in your scalp grows in groupings. These groupings, called follicular units, typically contain one to four hair follicles. In hair restoration, single-hair follicular units are transplanted in irregular patterns along the hairline, like the original hairline. Multiple-hair follicular units are used in the interior to provide density and fullness. In this way, the transplanted hair grows back naturally and permanently.
Follicular unit extraction, or FUE, is an alternative procedure for those who do not wish to undergo follicular unit hair transplantation. Unlike follicular unit transplant procedures, the FUE procedure uses a small punch to individually remove each follicular unit. FUE treatment can create one, two, three, or four hair follicular unit grafts that can then be transplanted into the balding area on a patient’s scalp or face.

Micro Motor Extraction
FUE MICRO MOTOR EXTRACTION:In Fue hair transplant industry, mostly micro motorized extraction is applied to extract grafts from donor area for one day hair transplant procedures. In many clinics, micro motor is used to perform FUE in patients experiencing hair loss in order to remove single follicular units rapidly. Due to an increased extraction rate per day the costs can be reduced easily and lower rates can be offered to attract more patients. As more patients will be treated within a shorter period of time the profit is rising relatively. We utilize the follicular unit approach for the restoration process but instead of removing a whole strip we transplant one individual follicular unit at a time. The instrumentation we use is so small that the donor area is left with tiny, no visible marks. The main advantage of this approach is that it provides flexibility to have a very short hairstyle or even shave the donor area.
Lateral Slits TechniqueLateral Slit Technique for Better Graft Placement: Another relatively new, innovative technique involves the direction the graft is placed in the scalp. The older technique of making the recipient sites parallel to the direction of hair growth causes the grafts to line up to give an unnatural and thinner appearance. The Lateral Slit Technique performed by our professional doctors changed our thinking dramatically with their revolutionary procedure of making recipient sites perpendicular or lateral to the direction of hair growth. According to the top hair transplant surgeons of the world; The lateral slit technique is the only surgical method that is able to duplicate the alignment and distribution of hair as it occurs in nature, maximizing coverage, and eliminating the pluggy results of older hair transplantation methods. The angle and direction of hair growth can be precisely controlled, allowing transplantation of areas previously regarded as too difficult or unsuitable for hair transplant surgery. In the donor area, follicular units appear to be lined up alongside one another in a plane perpendicular to the direction of hair growth. Lateral slit technique mimics nature’s arrangement of hair follicles providing the patient with the most natural possible results.
