There are many techniques doctors use for hair transplant operations. SEDO FUE is one of them. This method minimizes the anxiety during the operation. With SEDO FUE, the patient falls into a half-asleep state. Therefore he won’t feel the needles used in local anesthesia and any pain on his body. So what is SEDO FUE and who can be treated under this method? Let’s have a look:
What is SEDO FUE?
This method is applied as the classic Follicular Unit Extraction, known as FUE, under sedation, where grafts are collected one by one and transplanted later to the designated area. This method is not a requirement in hair transplant operation but it is advised for patients who have anxiety and low pain tolerance.
How Is The SEDO FUE Technique Administered?
The administration of this technique is quite simple. For the hair transplant operation – no matter which anesthesia method is used – a vascular access is opened up on the blood veins (usually on the arm) to provide the patient with necessary antibiotics. In the beginning of the operation we use a sedative medicine with minimal dose for the patient to relax and feel as if he’s in a sleep like state. With this, the patient doesn’t feel any pain. Then, just like all methods, the scalp is numbed with local anesthesia needles. The patient wakes up at the end of the whole procedure. When we use the SEDO FUE method, the hair line is drawn before the sedation instead of what we usually do (after the extraction of hair grafts). After the patient’s approval, the operation proceeds.
Which Patients Can Pick The SEDO FUE Option?
In hair transplant clinics, if the patient doesn’t have any disease related to heart or blood pressure, SEDO FUE method can be used with the approval and presence of an anesthesiologist. At Este Medica, we use this technique for the patients who don’t want to feel any pain and almost fall asleep from relaxing during the operation.
