FUE Hair Transplant

Holding Solution

In Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), the extracted grafts are placed in a liquid solution, known as holding solution that protects them from desiccation or drying out. The solution contains special vitamins and nutrients that preserve the grafts before the transplantation process is initiated.

At MedLinks, our experts extract follicular unit grafts from the donor area with appropriate size punches and preserve them in a holding solution by the time the recipient area is prepared. While these grafts are placed in the solution, they are sorted into 1-4 hair graft units and again placed back in the solution for temporary storage.

Why keeping the grafts in a holding solution is important?

Exposure to air and moisture for more than a few seconds can result in drying of delicate structures within the hair graft. Desiccation particularly occurs in grafts with pants legs or ones without an intact follicular capsule, surrounded by good fat at the distal end near the bulb.

Thus, once the grafts are finally removed from the holding solution, our experts place them quickly on the recipient skin area in order to ensure best and natural results.
