Extraction With Micromotor
The equipment used as the final method during harvesting of hair follicles (graft) is called micromotor. Hair follicles are extracted using special punches attached to the micromotor. Diameter of punches must be 0.5-0.7 mm. Grafts are extracted one by one during micromotor procedure.
Rotating speed of micromotor is very important in this technique. Rotating speed is selected based on the tissue and hair follicle properties of the patient.
This procedure reduces the operation time compared to the manual punch method. Higher number of grafts are extracted in a shorter time.
During operation, extraction is performed without damaging the scalp and tissue of the hair transplant recipient. Higher number of grafts can be obtained with the procedure applied using micromotor and less damage is caused to grafts.
