Hair transplantation with micromotor FUE

Fue hair transplantation with micromotor

Micromotor Fue is a transplantation method that is widely used today for hair transplants. The FUE technique can be applied in two ways as manual punch and micromotor.

What is micromotor?

The micromotor is a medical device that allows for convenient root collection by opening small holes around the hair root with its rotating tips with different diameters between 0.06 mm and 0.09 mm to quickly perform the graft collection process for hair transplants. The grafts performed with the micromotor device is called Micro Fue Hair Transplantation.

Micromotor device is an electrical medical device. The interchangeable punches on the tip can be adjusted to rotate at different speeds. Depending on the hair structure of the person, different punch sizes can be used, thus preventing strands with thinner root structures from being damaged by using smaller punch tips.

What are the features of Mikromotor Fue?

  • Micromotor FUE is a graft collection technique. The micromotor accelerates the graft collection process.
  • Micromotor is a term that is often used in dentistry in addition to hair transplantation.
  • Today 95% of hair transplants are performed with microfue.
  • The alternative method to the micromotor device is manual punching but the use of manual punching is very rare nowadays.
  • Manual punching and micromotor are different methods of collecting grafts during hair transplantation using the FUE method.

The advantages of the micromotor FUE

The micromotor device is used with punch tips that are very sharp. In this device, designed to cut the area around the hair roots, the doctor selects punch tips of different sizes (0.06 mm – 0.07 mm – 0.08 mm – 0.09 mm) depending on the thickness of the patient’s hair.

The Micromotor Fue hair transplantation is one of the most commonly used hair transplantation methods. Thanks to the micromotor, the individually and quickly collectable hair roots allow hair transplantation without leaving a permanent scar in the donor area. Thanks to microfue the operation time is shortened, the operation is easier and the bleeding is reduced. The hair root in the area and the donor area are not damaged.

What are the differences between Micro Fue and Manual Fue?

Micromotor FUE is an improved technique.

The difference of the micromotor, which has basically the same logic as the manual application, is that the processing time is completed in less time. Micromotor Fue, which opens fast and smooth cuts around the hair roots, allows comfortable working without damaging the hair root.

Manual punching, which is less used today, may be preferred for sensitive donor areas, such as the face and neck, where fewer grafts are collected.

The tips of the manual punch are turned by hand and incisions around the hair root are opened. With the micromotor, the punch tips rotate by themselves.

The importance of the grafts, which influences the success of hair transplantation, cannot be denied. In case of hair transplantation with a manual needle, between 1500 and 2000 grafts are removed within 1-2 hours. This number can easily exceed 3,000 for microfueled transplants. In FUE operations, the hair is placed according to the direction of growth.

Thanks to the microfue, the hair roots are removed very quickly during the transplantation, so that the doctor can collect more hair roots in a shorter time. The device, which does not damage the patient’s scalp during the operation, helps to complete the operation in less time.

Using the micromotor device

The needles, which are called “micro-punch” and have a diameter between 06 and 08 mm, are inserted and the hair roots are loosened. In the micromotor FUE method, the application is carried out by collecting grafts one by one, with the help of needle-like tubes with a sharp tip, called “micro-punch”. The device penetrates the skin by turning during the procedure and relaxes the donor area, so that the hair roots can be easily and quickly removed. The grafts are then collected using a tool called a micropunch set, whose tip looks like curved tweezers.

At the tip of the device there are needles called “micro-punch” with a diameter between 06 and 08 mm. In the case of micropunch, it takes about 2 to 4 hours to remove the hair root loosely.

Mikroromotor Fue is a “graft collection technique”.  Mikromotor Fue can be used with various graft transplantation techniques such as DHI. The doctor performing the hair transplantation can use a micromotor when collecting grafts. When the transplantation phase is reached in the continuation of the operation, DHI transplantation can be performed with DHI pins.

How is a Micro Fue hair transplantation performed?

The Microfue hair transplantation method is also called FUE hair transplantation and is the same method, but named differently. Today, almost all Fue hair transplants are performed with a micro motor. The use of manual punch, another graft collection method used with Fue, is decreasing from day to day.

Micro motor device

1. In Micro Fue hair transplantation, this area (the donor area) where the root is collected is shaved and shortened to 1 mm before the hair roots to be collected and transplanted from the donor area are taken.

To use the micromotor, the hair roots must be shortened in such a way that it is possible to reach the hair roots with punch tips. For this reason, the hair in the donor area, which is generally the neck area, is shortened slightly.

2. Then the doctor, who analyses the person’s hair structure, decides on punch tips suitable for the patient’s hair density, hair thickness and hair structure.

3. Before starting the microfueled graft collection, the area to be treated is anaesthetised with a local anaesthetic so that the patient does not feel any pain.

4. With the needle, called punch, the hair root is centred and the very small rotating punch tips open micro holes around the hair root to loosen the hair root.

5. Depending on the structure of the hair root, the hair growth structure is calculated. Then the microfue device with punch tips is inserted and removed from the skin according to the growth direction of the hair root. By this procedure, the area around the hair root can be scribed and the hair root can be removed from the nest.

6. After using the micromotor, the loosened hair roots are carefully pulled out of the area where they are located using a medical device called a micropen set and placed in glass petri dishes prepared by the team.

After this stage of hair transplantation, as with FUE hair transplants, the channels are opened and the collected grafts are transplanted. If this stage of the operation has been agreed upon beforehand, it can also be performed with the DHI method.

Today, this process can be described in different ways such as FUE, microfue, micromotor Fue in different sources, each time it is tried to explain that the grafts are collected one by one with the micromotor device.
