9. How are they removed?
They are taken with the help of a «punch». This tool is formed at its end for 2mm* diameter circular blade (width of a pencil mine) that rotates at high speed and cuts 2mm* diameter cylindrical grafts with precision. It is important to stress that these blades are sharpen regularly by a specialist jeweller to be sterilized later. On the other hand they are replaced frequently.
10. Is it painful?
You will only notice something in the first injections of local anesthesia performed with a very thin needle. But for those patients who do not want to suffer these initial slight pains apply a medication that will remove them immediately. Normally, the combination of sedatives we give you at the beginning of the operation combined with soft music that we issue in the room allows the patient resting placidly and lose all concept of time.
11. How many extractions can be made in the donor area?
We can extract about 3,600 « 2mm* grafts » ! Obviously, these grafts can be extracted as many times as necessary. But we only need to extract maximum 2,400 2mm*grafts to cover completely and for a lifetime someone with a baldness head at Hamilton’s stage VI, if you have a good donor site.

With 2mm*graft you don’t have reserve problems, the donor area is not damaged and there is no hair loss!
12. I have been previously operated several times with other methods, even so will I still be extracted hair with 2mm punch method?
We will do all necessary to extract and correct the imperfections caused by other methods, but if it was practiced «Strips» or another, then operation will be more complicated because the donor area may have been damaged with a too wide scar, impoverished density hair, perpendicular hairs to the scalp or layered, weak density implant, or simply the loss 30% of the reserves. In the case of FUE: the donor area has been less damaged but we will have a weak density of result and a loss of more than 40 to 50% of what really has been removed, which makes the work more complicated than if it never had been done.
Regardless of all this, our technique is the only one that will not be traumatic and will provide the best possible density after an operation.
13. How are 2mm* grafts implanted?
There are mainly two kinds of implants 2mm* diameter grafts:

- On a hairless scalp bleeding slightly: small holes are made with a 1.75 mm*"punch", this will eliminate hairless scalp to be replaced by a dense scalp. In some ways there is a reduction in the proportion of hairless scalp for leather with hair.
- Another method is to make small cylindrical incisions in the middle of hair that will be needed to implant again. These incisions will be made with non sharpened and frozen point less than 2mm * that prevents bleeding. The diameter of the cylindrical graft will be ideally suited to small incisions performed. These due to the elasticity of the scalp, will be closed on it allowing a fixation of the graft in half an hour. We will have a real density of hair concentrating the implant on hair still existing and not wasting any graft.This type of implant is performed in the first three front lines for a thinner healing due to the use of hair from the nape, which will provide a natural look.
14. Will « 2mm*» diameter grafts provide a «doll hair» appearance?
To explain that this possibility can not be we have to understand that wherever « 2 mm* diameter implant » is (a small hole practiced with 1.75 mm* « punch » or a cylindrical incision) the result will be the same: the skin around the graft will close on it reducing its diameter at least 1mm. Being formed a small rounded and lengthened brush that will resemble a natural implantation.
15. How many times can we implant again in a receiving area?
If we use non sharpened and frozen tips, we have no limits. Some patients wish, after first implant, that can be considered sufficiently dense, perform a second operation to get even a bigger density. But it is seldom necessary a third operation unless the hairs are very fine and the donor area is insufficient.
16. Postoperative follow-up? Cares? Deadlines to restart sporting activities, bathing, hairdressing, etc...?
Postoperative follow-up is always simple and without complications:
- Sometimes an edema will appear in the eyes after the third or eighth day, in which case you will apply an ice bag and you massage with fingers bent and moving your hands to the sides.
- In exceptional circumstances, one or several superficial abscesses can appear on the scalp and on the graft. This can happen the following weeks after operation. The doctor or a nurse will stick it with a sterile needle to be able to empty it with pressure and then a little eosin (or mercromina) will be applied. It is very rare and usually does not destroy the follicle that is 4mm deep.
