Step by Step FUE Hair Transplant Procedure

Step 1: Donor area examination

In this procedure, we examine the patient’s donor area. The donor area is generally patients scalp’s backside and in some cases beard area as well as chest which is rare. We examine whether you have enough number of good quality hairs at the donor area. These good quality hairs are needed for the transplantation at the recipient area. We also check whether you have healthy scalp or does it have any kind of infection. If you have any infection on the scalp or you have unhealthy scalp we treat it first with needed treatments.


Step 2: Shaving

Then our OT technicians shave off your hairs for proper visualization during FUE Hair Transplant procedure. We again check the density of the donor area for the number of donor hairs or grafts.

Step 3: Designing the donor and recipient area.

In this step, we divide the donor and recipient area in per square mm quadrants. Then decide how many grafts needed in the recipient area and how many we can extract from the donor area. So that after the surgery donor area should not look thinned out.

Step 4: Sterilization 

Sterilizing the surgical area is important to avoid any kind of infection. Then we sterilize the surgical area completely with betadine scrubbing. So that it will get completely disinfected. This will reduce future chances of folliculitis.

Step 5: Anesthesia

We give controlled local anesthesia all over the scalp with the help of anesthetic agents like xylocaine and bupivacaine. Before that, we do a sensitivity test. Don’t worry this anesthesia only gives local anesthesia you won’t be completely asleep, in fact, you can see your whole surgery.

Step 6: Hairline designing

Designing the hairline is very important to get natural looking hair. Then our surgeon Dr. Sachin Pawar does hair line designing, this is where the whole art lies. This is the deciding factor whether you are going to get perfectly natural looking hairline or not.


Step 7: Slit making

Our surgeon then makes slits on the recipient area in an original angle. As your original hairs and at a predecided density. This is also one of the factors responsible for the natural look.

Step 8: Extraction

Then with the help of extractor hairs from the donor area extracted without touching the root of the hair. Then we transfer them to the chillers.


Step 9: Microscopic examination

This examination takes place under the very expensive and advanced microscopes for its health and number of follicles. The microscopic examination determines the life and quality of grafts.

Step 10: Implanting

Then these grafts are implanted in the recipient area with the help of patented implanters. These implanters are called as DHI implanters.

This process of extraction, examination, and implantation of grafts takes place simultaneously. Which gives the best outcome and delivers maximum graft survival rate. This process is called Direct Hair Transplant. Our graft survival rate is 99%.
