The Hair Follicles During the Hair Transplant

Preparing the receiving site is exactly the architectural plan of the procedure to be performed. The extraction site, density and depth of individual follicles and the distribution of the follicles are determined at this stage. Once the channels have been prepared in accordance with this architectural plan, the transplant nurse only has to comply with this plan. As long as the architectural plan is well prepared, the resulting structure of a qualified work will be reliable and aesthetic.

This architectural plan lays the foundation for a successful Hair Transplant in Lahore. This is the procedure that determines the orientation and density of the hair follicles and provides a natural appearance.

The method for preparing the channels and the equipment used for this purpose is of great importance. Hair transplantation canals are made using specially designed blades (micro-slit) with a diameter of 0.5 – 0.8 mm. The width and length of the hair ducts are planned by separately evaluating the extracted follicles.

The depth of the hair transplantation channels to be prepared must match the length of the hair follicles, the width of the ducts must match the thickness of the follicles to be placed and the orientation of the ducts must match the original direction of existing hair. The channel to be prepared should be as small as possible, but it should still be wide enough to allow smooth insertion of the hair follicles. In this way, the nurse who performs the insertion can easily adapt the hair follicles to the channels and the blood circulation in the scalp is not disturbed. As a result, the hair growth of the transplanted hair follicles approximates one hundred percent.

There is absolutely no visible scar left and a natural result is obtained as long as the channels are carefully prepared. Likewise, if the canals are prepared in accordance with the orientation of the hair, the recently growing hair can be combed in the desired direction and naturally looks like the original hair.

The most awkward results of a poorly planned hair transplant operation include inability of the hair to be combed in the desired direction and the high perfectibility of the transplant. It is very difficult to change the incorrect hair orientation in the right direction, even in corrective operations. The appearance of hair which is popularly described as paving stones or a grass head occurs when the hairs are made perpendicular or opposite to the position of the hair or when an incorrect division is made. In addition, incisions that are wider than sufficient lead to noticeable channel scars on the underside of the hair shafts.

When planning the hairline, the canals should not follow a straight and sharp line; they should rather be disorderly prepared as a wavy line that gives a more natural appearance.

If an inaccurate architectural planning is made, the result will not be aesthetic and natural, even if the hair grows after a successful transplant. For all these reasons, the channels for insertion of hair must be prepared by an experienced plastic surgeon who specializes in the area with extensive knowledge.


After everything is planned and decisions have been made for the procedure, the patient is prepared for the operation. The person who will undergo the hair transplant will receive a haircut of grade 1. No haircut is required for that phase.

When a small amount of hair is transplanted, FUE hair transplantation can be done by shaving thin strips of hair without a full haircut. In this way, the person undergoing hair transplants can quickly continue their social life without showing any change in their appearance.

Local Anesthesia

After blinking, a specially prepared local anesthetic mixture is administered to undergo a painless hair transplant that does not hurt the patient or cause bleeding.

Is Hair Transplantation a Painful Procedure?

With regard to FUE hair transplants, the main concern of patients is the answer to the question: “Do I get pain during hair transplant?” Hair transplant operations are one of those interventions that offer a high level of patient comfort. Only slight pain is felt during local anesthesia injection at the beginning of the operation and the remainder of the hair transplant operation after this phase is completely painless.

Each individual has a different pain threshold. Although a patient with a higher pain threshold is not at all influenced by the local anesthesia procedure that takes about 1 minute, other people may have symptoms of mild burning and stinging. Those anxious people with lower pain thresholds can endure the situation by saying, “I’m in pain, but I can bear it.”

Implantation of Hair Follicles

This includes the implantation of the hair follicles that have been separately extracted by the FUE method into the prepared hair ducts. In this final phase of hair transplantation, the hair follicles are inserted at the right depth with the right angle without damaging it. This procedure requires patience and prudence. The hair follicles must be inserted individually into each channel without having to skip one of them.
