Use of mini and micro grafts in hair transplantation

In addition to treating hair loss in men and women suffering from hair loss, micro and mini hair transplants are now widely used in hair transplant repair procedures and reconstructive surgical restoration procedures. Hair. With the increased use of micro and mini-grafts as well as follicle transplants from individual hair units, reconstructive hair transplants today represent around 8-10% of total hair restoration operations.

Due to their small size, micro and mini grafts have a lower metabolic requirement than clogged grafts and a better survival rate than follicular units which can be damaged during dissection. Because these transplants can successfully grow on burnt scalp or fibroid areas, they hold promise for reconstructive hair transplants.

The only precaution for hair transplants with these mini and micro grafts is that the prepared mini and micro grafts are inserted into the scalp as soon as possible after making a silt. Transplanting the grafts in a short period of time increases the likelihood that the hair follicles will survive hair transplant procedures and actually turn into hair. To speed up the aforementioned hair transplant procedure, the assistant is called who immediately inserts a graft into the slit once it has been created by the hair transplant surgeon. The blades used for the operation are so small and sharp that there is almost no visible scar on the scalp.

Hair transplant: hair restoration on the face

The hair transplant procedure to restore facial hair (eyebrows, mustache and paws) is more difficult and different. When a hair transplant surgeon cuts near other grafts, neighboring grafts tend to come out of their corresponding slots. In such cases, the hair transplant surgeon cuts the slits and inserts the grafts a few minutes later. The rest of the hair transplant is the same if the hair transplant surgeon removes their needle and an assistant implants the transplant with a pair of jewelry pliers. An experienced hair transplant surgeon always pays close attention to the natural direction of growth during a reconstructive hair transplant and inserts their blade or needle at an acute angle to the side of the eyebrows.

For a successful reconstruction operation, the restoration of the natural direction of growth of the restored hair is more important than the number of hairs. When restoring beard and mustache hair loss, a hair transplant surgeon will keep their blade as flat as possible on the surface of the lip to ensure that the direction of growth is downward.

With eyelids, hair transplantation is more complicated because the eyelids are very thin, flexible and very close to the eye. The most difficult aspect of hair transplantation in this case is to keep the direction of hair growth. Typically, the hair from the eyebrows is used as donor hair, and approximately 10 to 12 micrografts per eyelid are used in two separate hair restoration surgery sessions that are performed approximately 8 to 12 months apart. Using a curved needle to restore eyelid hair is the innovative new technique used by hair restoration surgeons to facilitate hair transplantation.

Good conservation of these micro and mini grafts is essential throughout the hair transplant. The grafts are stored in Petri dishes filled with saline solution to keep them moist. During long procedures lasting more than 3-4 hours, the Petri dishes with these grafts are kept in saline solution on a basin filled with ice.

One technique that is suitable for any hair transplant is the graft insertion technique so that the graft epidermis is superficially left to the epidermis of the recipient site. The aim of this hair transplant is to prevent the formation of inclusion cysts at the insertion points and also to prevent hair growth. After each hair transplant, the transplants look like bumps. After healing, the graft epidermis will shrivel up and it will take about 10-14 days for it to finally be rejected.
