Dr. Arambulo’s device is the POWERED SAFE SCRIBE ,using small blunt punches sizes in mm from  0.8-0.9  to 1 .0. She prefers to use 0.8mm in majority of her patients to leave almost negligible punctate scars.

1-2 hair follicular grafts

These are the well extracted  intact grafts by FUE  , the proof of our hair transplant specialist  efficiency and skills . The patients should be aware of this detail which is important in the success of  hair transplant  procedure.

Dr. Arambulo can harvests 1000-2000 grafts by FUE technique in one session, however, for patients requiring more than 2000 grafts ,the procedure is divided into 2 sessions , 1-2 days  apart .

Fue scalp preparation

Scalp full shaving or  strip shaving will depend on the number of grafts to harvest per session .Patient  scalp preparation must be agreeable to patien. This is important  to facilitate the grafts harvest.

 

FUE  technique offers patients the option of no stitches, less down-time, more tolerable post-operative pain, and less visible scarring. Scarring due to FUE as compared to a standard strip excision for the same number of grafts is certainly not less. However, the diffuse nature of the punctate scars from FUE may confer a decrease in detectability especially in patients who either shave their head or wear their hair short

FUE grafts

FUE also makes possible harvesting of follicular units with finer hairs from slightly lower areas on the neck or above the ears for use in the hairline or eyebrows and most importantly being able to perform body hair transplant for additional volume. This procedure further demands a higher degree of skill and coordination on the part of the surgeons and staff. To learn more click BODY HAIR TRANSPLANT
