  1. The hair follicle should be extracted without damage with a personalized punch.

When it comes to hair transplants, engraftment is key. FUE hair transplant involves harvesting hair follicles from your own back of the head, and how I harvest the healthy grafts determines the engraftment rate. Typically, a tool called a “punch” of about 1 millimeter is used to harvest the follicles. Each person’s hair follicles are different in shape and thickness. so it’s important to use a punch with the right diameter to ensure that the follicle is extracted without damage.

A narrower punch may cut the follicle, while a wider one may unnecessarily remove a lot of surrounding tissue, resulting in a higher rate of scarring. It takes skill on the part of the practitioner to use the optimal punch for each individual.


  1. Maximizing the effect with fewer hair follicles.

The cost of a hair transplant varies from clinic to clinic, but it’s best to calculate on a per-follicle basis. Some people grow only one hair per follicle, and some grow two to four hairs in a single follicle. These are called multifollicular follicles, and harvesting and transplanting multifollicular follicles can increase the efficiency of the surgery.

In other words, instead of transplanting 1000 hairs from 1000 follicles, transplanting 1,000 hairs from 500 follicles is more effective. To achieve this, the surgeon must have the know-how to harvest and can extract healthy follicles without damaging them.


  1. Make sure to make slit sites in the direction of the original hair.

To transplant the harvested hair follicles into the balding area, a small hole called a “slit” is made. The idea is to create a home for the follicles so that they can grow well, and the size and depth of the slit is made according to the harvested hair follicles. Right size of slit ensures follicles to have good access to oxygen and nutrients, which will increase the grafting rate. Also, the slit should be made in the direction of the original hair so that the hair grows in its natural direction. The hair at the temples grows very close to the skin, so the slit should be made at a low angle.

On the crown of the head, the slit should be made in a whirling motion so that the result is natural. If the direction and angle of the slit is not right, it may cause side effects such as stretching of the grafts. The surgeon needs to know how to make slits according to the characteristics of the hair in each area.


     4.Make sure the grafts are intact and fit perfectly.

All of my hard work can go to waste if I harvest a healthy follicle and it doesn’t transplant well. Grafting the harvested follicles reliably is a very important step in determining engraftment rates. The slit hole is about the same size as the follicle or slightly smaller.

Therefore, small forceps are used to pick up the follicle and transplant it into the hole. It’s best to do this in a single pass with minimal manipulation. Too much manipulation of the follicles can damage them and affect their engraftment rate.

In order to ensure that the hair follicles are tightly interlocked with the tissue and are stable, the surgeon needs to be skilled and have an organized surgical system in place.
