The alopecia is excessive hair loss, its origin is mainly genetic and affects both men and women. Specialists usually consider alopecia when a drop of more than 100 hairs per day is produced.

The hair transplant by FUE technique ( Follicular Unit Extraction ) is performed via a 0.8mm punch instrument to extract the Follicular Unit. This extirpation is performed under local anesthesia and the maximum number of follicular units is 1,500 UFs extracted in one day. Thus, depending on the number of follicles necessary for the procedure takes between 1 to 2 days.


The technique of FUE is to extract individually Follicular Units using punch less than 1mm in diameter, usually from 0.75 to 0.8mm. The surgical material used ( punch ) surrounding the UF so that the follicle is removed entirely scalp. The disadvantage of this technique is relatively slow compared to extraction operations by“& rdquo ;, strip can be removed and implanted between 1000 and 1500 UF&rsquo ;. S in one day

This method of hair transplant can not be applied to all patients. It is only recommended in cases of alopecia and not very advanced when we wish to cover only a few tickets, or 1/3 crown above.

Postoperative and scar

considerations you must consider the patient after the procedure have been made are: 14 days without playing sports, a month without bathing in sea water, two months without bathing in pool and, finally, during the first postoperative week the patient must use a special shampoo that we give.

Thanks to that drawings are made with a minimum diameter, the patient did not present visible scars.
