Since the first scalpel was created, surgeons have been creating new surgical devices and tools to improve their technique, precision, and efficiency. Surgical hair restoration is no different. Many world-renowned hair transplant surgeons have created their own surgical punches and implantation devices to boost the growth and yield of their procedures.
In this article, we will be discussing the Trivellini surgical punch for follicular unit extraction (FUE).
What is the Trivellini FUE Surgical Device?
The Trivellini FUE instrument is a surgical punch used for extracting follicular unit grafts via FUE. The Trivellini surgical instrument is the first device with two handpieces that can be used individually or simultaneously by two surgeons or technicians. The device has a sensitive touch screen that displays the various modes in colorful graphics.
Currently, it is the only device on the market that can execute rotation, oscillation, and vibration individually or combined. In addition, the Trivellini device is controlled with a pedal that can be used with a programmed sequence for efficient control.
How Does This Impact Hair Transplant Surgery?
FUE is a surgical technique that requires a hair transplant surgeon's utmost care and attention. Generally, FUE grafts are weaker by nature because they contain less fatty tissue. Thus, FUE grafts must be handled with care and a minimal amount of physical contact. The Trivellini FUE device ensures that the surgeon is extracting the healthiest grafts possible.
Thus, improving the survival rate of the patient's delicate grafts and boosting the overall yield of the hair transplant procedure. In fact, Dr. Mohebi of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians has been using this device in his practice for the past two years with excellent patient results.
Before we start singing praises, we should understand that any device, tool or instrument in the wrong hands can damage the patient's donor and hinder the overall yield of the surgical procedure. The skill, talent, and experience of hair transplant surgeons vary widely, as do their results.
Without surgical skill or an eye for artistry, the procedure will fail regardless of the tool, device or instrument. Therefore, selecting a skilled hair transplant surgeon is essential for receiving dense and natural results that will last a lifetime.
