FUT Hair Transplant

Graft Dissection

Stereo microscopic graft dissection is an important aspect of the FUT procedure. It allows the surgeon to remove follicular units from the donor strip without causing any damage to the donor area. In order to maximize growth, our experts at MedLinks keep the follicular units intact. This maximizes hair growth in the donor area after the procedure.

The scalp of an average person contains about 100 follicular units per square cm of the donor tissue. Thus, in order to graft 2000 hair, our surgeons use a strip that is a centimeter wide and about 20 cm in length. In order to achieve seamlessness in the whole procedure, we perform graft dissection simultaneously with other steps of the hair restoration process.

Here are a few steps involved in graft dissection:

  • Slivering is the first and foremost step of the graft dissection procedure. It includes division of a long donor strip into smaller sections (2-2.5 mm in width).

  • Our surgeons pass a scalable blade through the space around the follicular units rather than cutting directly through the tissue block. This aids in creating smaller pieces of hair bearing tissues and prevents breaking of follicular units.
  • These smaller pieces are then stored in the holding solution to prevent desiccation. It also prevents small molecules like Na+ from entering the sensitive cells and causing damage. The solution contains various ingredients that extends the viability of the grafts.
  • After the recipient area is ready for transplantation, grafts are taken out from the holding solution and placed in a petri-dish.
  • Finally, the grafts are again bathed in the holding solution at constant and set temperatures before the surgeon places them on the patient’s scalp.

Advantages of Stereo Microscopic Graft Dissections

  • Allows the surgeon to evaluate graft with utmost precision and minimizes damage rate during the dissection process.
  • Facilitates the surgeon with graft magnification. It helps them to extract maximum number of grafts for the implantation process.
  • Maximizes graft survival rate by minimizing the risk of transection during the dissection process.
