Tiny punch incisions are made, using millimetric surgical instruments, around the individual follicular units, from the prepared donor area. This cleanly isolates the graft for extraction.
Each of the isolated grafts is carefully extracted from the scalp, using very fine forceps that can cleanly grip the follicular unit.
Trained technicians work with high-powered microscopes to examine and prepare the extracted follicular grafts for placement. Each graft is grouped based on the number of hairs within each follicle.
Small incisions are made to the recipient area, to match the natural hair growth pattern. The grafts are strategically placed one by one, based on the numbers of hairs that are within each follicle.
Strip harvesting is the most common technique for removing hair and follicles from a donor site. The doctor harvests a strip of skin from the posterior scalp, in an area of good hair growth.
In slivering, the dissector divides the long donor strip into smaller sections of approximately 2-2.5mm in width. This technique generates smaller pieces of hair-bearing tissue without breaking up follicular units and without transecting hair.
One of the most important aspects of FUT Hair Transplant surgery is stereo-microscopic dissection. This allows follicular units to be removed from the donor strip without being broken or damaged.
Grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the balding areas of scalp.
As a Past President of the Cosmetic Physicians College of Australia (CPCA), Dr. Molton has performed hair transplants since 1995 in Perth, Sydney and Adelaide. Combined with his experience, this allows him to provide the very best in cosmetic solutions to meet the needs of each patient. The CPCA believes it is in a patient’s best interest to select only qualified and experienced doctors when considering a cosmetic procedure. Relevant training and experience are prerequisites for admission to the CPCA, and it is a condition of membership that our doctors keep abreast of the latest medical and scientific advances.
