How does Micromotor work in FUE Hair Transplant?

  How Micro-motor Works - FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a top method of hair transplant in Turkey that has become very popular today. A hollow micro motor-driven rotating needle is used for the process. Surgeons can entirely focus on removing in the exact direction where the hair grows, without having to turn the hollow needle. With the use of the micromotor, transplantation of more than 4,500 grafts is possible – causing minimal stress to patients and taking least time. It is mainly used for extracting samples. Find out how micromotor works in FUE hair transplantation.

Shaving of hair

In the first stage, hair is shaved with the help of sterilized equipment and solutions in the doctor’s clinic. In every top hair clinic such as SHIFT Hair Transplant, care is taken to prevent infection in the site due to exposure to bacteria, whether due to non-sterilized equipment or some other reason.


Once shaving is done, the operation begins. Local anaesthesia is first applied to the area, the effects of which last for around 10 – 15 minutes during the surgery. You can stay awake even after local anaesthesia is used, and no pain is experienced during surgery.

Drawing of samples

Following local anaesthesia, extraction of hair samples is the first stage of hair transplant in Turkey. The micromotor tool is used to pick stems of hair one by one from the skin on the ear and nape. As many as 3500 to 4000 grafts can be implanted in the process. The grafts that are extracted after taking hair samples are preserved in a special solution in a cold spot. The surgery takes about 2 to 3 hours to be completed when conducted in top hair restoration facilities such as SHIFT Hair Transplant.


Once hair stem is picked and a sample is taken, surgeons carry out canalization to implant the extracted grafts. The shafts of hair have to be dense and thin and are directed in place with canalization.

Hair replacement

The last stage involves the replacement of hair that is extracted in open shafts for the purpose of canalization. Hair transplant in Turkey with micromotor tool takes about 3 hours, after which candidates can return to their homes. No hospital stay is needed following the surgery. As the transplanted hair stays outside the body for only a short time, this works as an advantage during the growth phase. Basically, this is how micro-motor works in the FUE hair transplant process.
