The new Yaman Implanter for Follicular Unit Excision

Category : Hair Transplant News 8/8/2018 7:08:32 PM

Dr. Resul Yaman, has developed a new and exciting surgical instrument for Follicular Unit Excision (formerly known as follicular unit extraction) called the "Modified FUE-Yaman Implanter". The "Modified FUE-Yaman Implanter" is different than other follicular unit implanters, because the grafts have minimal contact with the patients skin and the surgeons forceps. In this article, we will discuss how this new and exciting device works.

What is the "Modified FUE-Yaman Implanter?

The "Modified FUE-Yaman Implanter" is an instrument used to transplant follicular units in to the patient's recipient zone (scalp). This device was designed to reduce physical contact to the patients grafts. By reducing the amount of physical contact, the grafts and the scalp experience less trauma, which lead to a greater graft survival and faster healing.

How does the "Modified FUE-Yaman Implanter" work?

During hair restoration with Dr. Resul Yaman, a dedicated team of technicians who are trained specifically for extracting follicular unit grafts, place the grafts in HypoThermosol solution. HypoThermosol is a storage solution which is used to store organs during transplantation. Dr. Resul Yaman, then places these carefully prepared grafts in his new patented "Modified FUE-Yaman Implanter" pen. This instrument gently pushes the grafts under the recipients skin with the assitance of a slice bar. The follicular unit grafts are implanted under the skin without touching the surface or forceps. This prevents any possible trauma that may result from squeezing/crushing the grafts through recipient sites that are either too big or too small.

Conclusion

Follicular Unit Excision formerly known as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a surgical technique that requires the utmost care and attention. Follicular unit grafts are delicate and can be damaged quite easily. The "Modified FUE-Yaman Implanter" pen reduces the amount of contact the graft has with the receipient's skin and the surgeon's forceps. Thus, improving the survival rate of the patients precious grafts and boosting the overall yield of the procedure.
