How Does Dr. Gabel Make The Recipient Sites For The Hair To Be Transplanted?

Posted on June 5, 2024

In hair restoration surgery, precision is everything. The pursuit of the best results has led to numerous advancements in techniques and tools, with one of the most significant being the development of custom cut blades. These specialized instruments are revolutionizing the way hair restoration procedures are performed, offering unparalleled accuracy and outcomes for patients. In this blog post, we’ll delve into what custom cut blades are, their benefits, and the importance for obtaining optimal results.


What Are Custom Cut Blades?

Custom cut blades are specially designed surgical instruments tailored to meet the unique needs of each hair restoration patient. Unlike standard blades, which come in predetermined sizes and shapes, custom cut blades are crafted to the specific requirements of the surgeon and the patient. This customization allows for a higher degree of precision, resulting in more natural-looking hairlines and improved overall results.


The Benefits of Custom Cut Blades

1. Precision and Accuracy: One of the primary advantages of custom cut blades is their precision. Because they are tailored to the individual patient, surgeons can create incisions that are perfectly sized and angled for optimal hair follicle placement. This level of accuracy is crucial in achieving a natural-looking hairline, mid-scalp and crown. Dr. Gabel is able to determine the exact size of one’s follicular unit grafts and custom cut blades to match. This ensures that the grafts fit perfectly into the specific slit.

2. Reduced Trauma: Custom cut blades are designed to minimize trauma to the scalp. Smaller, more precise incisions mean less damage to the surrounding tissue, resulting in faster healing times and reduced risk of complications. This is particularly important in hair restoration surgery, where the goal is to preserve as much of the existing hair and scalp health as possible.

3. Increased Efficiency: Custom cut blades can also improve the efficiency of the hair restoration procedure. With the ability to make precise incisions, surgeons can reduce the overall time of the surgery, making it a more comfortable experience for the patient.


How Custom Cut Blades Are Made

As shown below, Dr. Gabel has a device that he places a very sharp, thin razor blade on the stage. He then dials in the exact width that he needs and deploys the device. Once deployed, a small, precise blade is cut to the exact size that Dr. Gabel needs for the operation to make the recipient sites. The width of the blade can be cut anywhere between 0.5 mm to 1.5 mm. Dr. Gabel will make many blades to fit the exact size of the follicular unit grafts for each patient.


The Future of Hair Restoration Surgery

The introduction of custom cut blades represents a significant leap forward in hair restoration surgery. As technology continues to advance, we can expect to see even more innovations that enhance the precision, safety, and outcomes of these procedures.
