Do all surgeons use the same tools when performing FUE?

0

The tools that are used in FUE vary considerably among doctors. This has led many doctors to develop their own specialized tools. What is impressive is the wide range of tools used by doctors who do this type of surgery. Some doctors use sharp punches and some use dull ones; some use combined sharp and dull punches, scoring the skin with a sharp punch followed by dissection of the graft with a dull punch in a two step process; while other use drills that rotate to specified speeds like a dental drill or oscillate back and forth; and others use vibrating tools like the cast cutters used to remove plaster casts from a broken arm, just a small version of one. All of these tools have been found to have similar results. This indicates that no tool or technique seems to work for every surgeon. Whatever tools are used, the survival of the hairs in a graft is what determines the value of the tool. Ask your surgeon what type of tools they use and why they prefer that tool.
