Hair graft with mixed FUE and FUE technique DHI

Hair graft with mixed FUE and FUE technique DHI: What does it consist of?

Currently there are different methods and techniques in a capillary implant. Today, the FUE technique is the most widespread due to its natural results, since it does not leave visible scars. And, sometimes and under medical criteria, this traditional FUE technique is used in conjunction with the DHI giving rise to what we know as the capillary graft with mixed technique. What is the mixed technique hair transplant procedure like? In which cases is it done?

Below we will tell you everything you need to know about hair grafting with a mixed FUE and FUE technique DHI.

What is hair transplant with mixed technique?  

We understand hair grafting with a mixed technique as the union of two implant methods: traditional FUE technique and the DHI. The hair transplant process is the same as the one we are used to, the only thing that exists slight variations in the implantation phase both in the way of proceeding and in the instrumental.   

Opting for a hair transplant with a mixed technique depends exclusively on the criteria of the medical team. According to our doctors, is usually carried out when the patient who undergoes hair grafting has native hair in the recipient area, but at the same time areas completely without hair. In these cases, hair grafting with a mixed technique is the best option. Thanks to DHI It is possible to implant without damaging the hair that has not yet fallen using the implanter, redensifying these areas, while with the sapphire scalpel the incisions are made in the areas without hair where the follicular units are implanted in a traditional way.

More and more professionals are resorting to hair grafting with a mixed technique to obtain the best aesthetic results.

Step by step of a capillary graft with mixed technique

The mixed technique hair transplant procedure, as we mentioned, only varies in the incision and implantation phase. Below we explain how is the step by step of a hair transplant with FUE and FUE technique DHI.

Shaving the donor area

The first thing that is carried out is the shaving of the donor area. It is necessary that the hair is approximately 2 millimeters long for its extraction and subsequent implantation.

In cases where the length of the hair allows it, you can use the hair graft without shaving. Only a small area is shaved as a "little window" that would go unnoticed with the length of the hair.

Application of local anesthesia

The capillary graft does not require general anesthesia, it is only used locally. In this way the patient does not feel discomfort during the surgery.

However, the application of local anesthesia itself is usually somewhat painful and, for this reason, in Hospital Capilar We offer our patients a service of pre-anesthesia with which we managed to reduce the pain of anesthesia itself considerably.

Extraction of the necessary follicular units

Once the area is anesthetized, the follicular units estimated by the medical team are extracted. This is done with a punch with micromotor with which the follicles are extracted individually without damaging them.

When extracted, the follicular units are checked, separated and placed in Petri dishes for better preservation.

Incisions and implantation with FUE technique in areas with less density

In areas where there is no native hair, the surgeon makes the incisions with a sapphire scalpel and, subsequently, the follicular units are manually implanted.

Implantation with DHI in the densest areas

On the other hand, in the areas where native hair exists that has not yet fallen, the incisions and implantation are made simultaneously with the implanter. In this way, a greater density of the area is achieved without damaging the patient's hair.
