In Part 2 of our series showing an FUT hair transplant procedure at Bernstein Medical, Dr. Bernstein prepares the patient’s donor area before harvesting the donor strip. The donor area is shaved and anesthetic is administered. Dr. Bernstein then removes a thin strip of skin containing the follicular units that form the basis of the hair transplant procedure. After removal, the strip is placed into a dish containing Ringer’s Lactate at room temperature before going to the dissecting table. From there, we watch, and Dr. Bernstein narrates, as the Bernstein Medical clinical staff dissect the strip into individual follicular unit grafts. These grafts are held in a special chilled biologic solution to maximize graft survival before they are placed into recipient sites in the balding areas of the scalp.
