In fact the channel method involves what
we call the sockets in which the hair follicles will be inserted to during the transplantation process and these sockets are formed through fine incisions.
During the hair transplantation process, small channels are opened on the transplantation site using a medical device called the laterslit (lateral channel technique) after the application of local anesthesia. Each of these channels are made in varying lengths and thickness based on the length and thickness of the extracted hair. After this, hair follicles are inserted one by one into these channels using transplantation pen sets. The hairs are transplanted in 30 to 35 degrees to provide a natural appearance.
More swelling occurs in the head area after the application of the FUE technique. This is because when opening the channels, a special solution is injected to swell the skin in order to allow the transplantation expert to perceive the channels and to prevent these channels from closing. This swelling goes down in 1-2 days and it does not affect the daily life of the patient.
