Such important issues are identified during planning.

After planning it is necessary for a patient to make a photo archive photo from the front (the front part), after it make drawing of distribution graphs with a pencil, it is necessary to re-do the photo.

Anesthesia review 

Consultation of the anesthesiologist is very important for the following groups of patients (anxious patients, allergies, people with cardiovascular disease, diabetes).

Local anesthesia

For pain treatment of a patient on the area from which hair follicles will be taken and the area where the hair will be transplanted local anesthesia is applied. The surgery, which is carried with a special needle, prevents the patient from feeling pain and numbness occurs within 3-5 minutes. The pain is not felt during surgery and after surgery the painkillers are not needed.

To be taken of the grafts 

Before you start collecting grafts the local infiltration anesthesia of the scalp is carried out. Thanks to FUE motor before this process the numb the area is extended with a special solution in advance. With this liquid roots become looser and thus it is possible to obtain a large amount of roots. On the average, you can get about 1000-1500 roots per hour. This process depends on the experience of the expert transplant and the condition of the patient's tissues, the volume of bleeding and general conditions.

Opening of channels 

Opening of channels is carried out in the area of opening roots. On pre-painted section a certain number of channels are opened. Prior to cutting hair the patient is determined on the basis of planned where and how many channels should be opened. During the surgery, even if small changes are made, a doctor still adheres to the prepared plan of the opening of channels. With the help of a special device in the anesthetized area into the root zone before transplanting, the planned number of channels are opened. Number of channels should be equal to the number of transplants. During the opening of channels should it be carefully drawn attention to the exit angle of the hair. Using special glasses even without hair fiber available from specialists find them and stick to the previous condition of the hair. Attention of a specialist should be focused during channel opening. It is necessary to take into account not only the number of opened channels, but natural looking hair, natural hair transitions into each other as well as to take into account the desired hair density. During this procedure, patients can listen to the music, watch TV. This process takes an hour, during this time you can get an average of 2500-3000 grafts.

Transplanting of grafts

The final stage of the operation is the process of transplanting in the first step of the roots on the second stage at the open channels. Since local anesthesia is used, the pain does not happen. Previously received grafts are placed in sterile containers with the liquid. In this process, the grafts are split into one, two or more of the roots and thus the amount of current is apparently derived grafts. Separation grafts play an important role, because it is not allowed to put at the transplantation area each type of grafts. For example, in order the carried out surgery looked naturally it is very important to transplant single transplants at the front hairline , the presence on the back of double or multiple grafts is characterized by fewer opening channels.

Special considerations for this process are vital. Also, to leave no doubt in the mind of a patient, prior to planting grafts it is necessary to provide brief information about counting grafts, grafts and photo, save the photo archive of a patient. Planting process is carried out by two or three qualified specialists. In particular, transplantation in the front line of single channels, grafts should be performed more carefully. Transplanting grafts performed by specialists at a time is extremely important. Graft taken from a special liquid in order not to be dried out must be transplanted quickly. Transplanting and planting process takes time and during surgery, the patient remains in a semi-sitting position.

To be discharged of a patient 

Except of foreign patients who do not wish to stay in the hotel, all patients are discharged. There isn`t any necessity to stay in the hospital. After the surgery to the place of hair collection a special silicone dressing is put and bandaged. By this way aesthetically contact with the external environment is terminated.

Need to be done at home 

Upon arrival home one should remove the medical cap. In this situation, oxygen-treated wound will heal quickly and wound pressure feeling will disappear, which may have friction on the area transplanted grafts or irritate the scalp. On the day of surgery and after surgery the home regimen is very important. A patient should not be doing something else. But the use of the computer when not strongly inclined his head down and not hard work after the operation is possible, it is best to avoid heavy physical work. Try the first 2-3 days after transplantation does not tilt your head forward strongly.

Sleeping position

The first night sleep is a bit problematic. Due to fatigue and lack of pain the patient is prone to sleep, but curiosity and fear interfere with the natural process of falling asleep. Lack of quality sleep is not a sign of health problems. Try to sleep on your back, avoiding contact between the transplanted area with a pillow or other objects. The first night, it would be better if someone from the family can control the correct position of the patient, but in order to secure the desired position of the head, it is de

Patient in any case should not lie on his side and sleep face down. After the first shampooing, patients begin to feel more comfortable. Qualitative and restful sleep, in most cases, it is expected in 7-10 days after surgery.

The first wash

The first shampooing must necessarily be carried out after monitoring and control of doctors. The first shampooing procedure held not earlier than 72 hours after the transplant. First, the transplant area is smeared with softening lotion and left in this state for at least 20-45 minutes. As a result of softening removed traces of dried blood and hair should be washed with warm water, thus removing excess lotion. Donor and transplanted area is washed with special medical shampoo. To do this, you need to pre-shampoo lather between palms and very careful with tangential movements to put over the entire scalp.

In any case the rubbing movements must not be done, do not use nails. After washing your hair should be dried with a paper or cloth (not terry cloth) towel, while in any case should not rub the scalp. Within 3 days of the transplant area should be treated with an antiseptic solution rifampicin. In the following days, there is no need to do anything. Shampooing should be conducted more often by the patient, it`s effect accumulates every day and after about 7-10 days on the scalp has no traces of dried blood and scabs. Procedure of shampooing must be repeated every day in full the above method, and starting from the 15th day, you can wash your hair with a conventional method. After the 15th

day, if desired, the patient can wash his hair every day or less. Shower can be taken several times a day immediately after the operation, but it is not recommended to wash your hair with shampoo more than once a day. Subsequently wash heads are better to use medical or baby shampoo.

The use of medicines

The required in process the serum or medicines must to be administered intravenously. Serum should contain emotional relaxants, painkillers, antibiotics and decongestants medications. Thus, during the surgery, the patient will not feel pain and anxiety and the risk of infection is unlikely. This application is necessary during the operation, which will provide comfort to the patient, as well as if they show signs of discomfort after the operation, it is necessary to use these resources. Despite all the advantages during surgery, medicines used for patients after surgery at 100% of its action will not be sufficient, so for this reason, your doctor prescribes antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, painkillers and medicines to prevent edema. The use of antibiotics should be 5-7 days, 1-3 days analgesic, antibiotic treatment antiseptic 4 days 3 days. After the patient stops to use antibiotics in the remaining time will not need to use the medication.


After transplantation with FUE method it is not recommended to cut hair during the first 2 weeks. After the second week you can do a haircut with scissors. Beginning with the 60th day a hairstyle can be carried out by any method. It is desirable to carry out the first haircut at the hairdressers with experience or understanding of how to deal with clients, who underwent hair transplant procedure.

Second or third session:

With one session all the open areas are not closed, the second even a third session, can be scheduled. In this case, we have to wait 6 months.
