Increase Graft Survival, Caring For Follicular Units


Ultimately graft survival will impact greatly on the quality of the result from a hair transplant procedure; no matter how well the grafts have been placed if the yield is low when grown out the patient´s result will be thin, patchy and unnatural

Graft care during the procedure is vital, from the initial extraction regardless of the technique used, FUT or FUE, to the cleaning of the grafts and being placed in a holding solution to the placement of the grafts into the recipient sites

The quality of the doctor´s technicians is vital to this process as they will handle the grafts over most of these stages and the doctors will oversee the graft handling to ensure the quality is maintained and at the same time each process is performed efficiently to ensure the grafts are not left out of the scalp for an excessive time period

All aspects of graft handling should be performed under magnification; this ensures no damage is caused, transection kept to a minimum and only good quality follicular units are used and placed

Large sessions and high density of follicular unit placement; the larger the procedure the more time it takes, the longer the grafts are out of the body; a skilled and efficient team will be able to work in placing the grafts in rotation to ensure the well-being of the grafts and patient

Placing at high density is a skill; the instruments used will aid the slit making, customised to the size of the graft. Placing too high a density, the slits too close to each other can impair healing and graft survival

Healing is a vital part to the yield and success of a hair transplant; post-operative care is another important aspect to maximise the growth rate. Little to no pressure should be applied to the recipient area in the first week, the second week slight gentle massage can be applied when shampooing; the grafts are delicate and with scratching or vigorous massage they can be dislodged from the recipient sites

It is important to always follow the instructions given by the clinic, and if any concerns talk with the doctor and take the advice
