In modern times of hair transplant the micromotor is indispensable. Before the micro motor, grafts (follicular units) were extracted manually, which was very time consuming. Two to three sessions were needed for a manual hair transplant of the desired amount of, eg. 4000 grafts.
Nowadays, with the FUE method, grafts are extracted not manually anymore but using a hollow needle, which is supported by an electronic motor.
Thus, the transplantation time is reduced, which means less stress for the patient. Some even say that this method supports hair in its growing process, as grafts are kept outside the body only for a short time
Another advantage is the costs, which are 70-80 % less than they would be for the manual method.
However, it is important to be experienced in using the micromotor.
