A very important part of an HT. (Hair Transplant)

[image]This is an important part of a hair transplant surgery. It is overlooked in most all of my own experience with the exception of the last two clinics I have worked for.

The depth at which the grafts need to sit within the recipient area must be measured. If the physician makes the depth too deep then the graft could be potentially buried... causing pitting or cobble stoning. If the depth is too shallow, then the graft could potentially be smashed or curled. What is also worth noting is that most experienced technicians will know there is a depth issue and communicate that to the physician. Then he or she can make an adjustment. I can almost guarantee that this simple part of this procedure is overlooked by larger hair mill clinics.

Good post , those grafts must need handling with the ` greatest of care ` I wonder how depth, angulation , minimum handleing issues are dealt with by clinics and Drs who use various ` inplanter pens `

Thanks chris. I try to bring up little aspects of the procedure from time to time.

ejj,

Ah the implanter pen... That has been around for awhile. What a great point. And one could argue that the pen would adjust the depth at every implant. However in my opinion if there were shallow "sites" The dialation of the slits with the pen could potentially push tissue into the hole of the pen thus potentially crushing the bulb/s of the graft.

If anyone is wondering what ejj is talking about... Implanter pens are these devices that look like writing pens. A graft is put inside the lumen of the pen and the pen is inserted into the slit. And a plunger is pressed. The graft is pressed into the slit.

Ejj has brought up an important topic for this thread. Kudos!
