Coordinating A Hair Transplant Procedure

There are many aspects to be considered when performing surgical hair restoration, and it is important that the medical team are well versed, work efficiently and as a team for the well-being of the patient

A hair transplant is a team effort, with the Doctor controlling their team to ensure the day runs smoothly as each individual in the team has specific roles during the day

The doctors are skilled to perform all aspects of a hair transplant. Principle duties are design and planning, anaesthesia, FUE punching, strip removal and suturing and slit making in the recipient with custom-made blades

The Tech team are medically certified and trained in-house to perform the cutting and slithering as well as graft placement, with a professional but caring manner

The doctor needs to extract the grafts from the donor area, be it with FUE or FUT technique; this is the first phase of the procedure. Dependent on the technique this may be performed over the day, with FUE for example; whereas FUT the harvesting is performed in one pass

Time management is important to ensure the grafts remain out of the skin for the minimal time possible; this ensures greater medical care and for the well-being of the patient. The grafts then need to be separated into their follicular unit size and cleaned, a job undertaken by the technicians and checked by the doctor

The slithering and cleaning of the grafts should always be performed under magnification; this ensures a high survival rate, reduces transection and allows for cleaner grafts to be placed

Whilst the techs are cleaning and dividing the follicular units in to the different size groupings the doctor will be making the recipient sites for the grafts to be placed into; this takes time in large sessions

The placement of the grafts is generally performed by the technicians, overseen by the doctors to ensure no slit are overlooked and the grafts placed in specific recipient sites; it is common that the technicians rest and swap over to maintain efficiency, also that more than one tech will place at the same time

Although the doctor cannot be personally hands on in every aspect on the procedure it is important that they are present and checking throughout the day and of course importantly when the procedure is finished.

It is important the patient understands who does what and is not surprised; so prior to the operation confirm with the doctor the roles of themselves and their team
