The surgical skills required fr such delicate procedures are married with with the Doctor´s personal skills. Talking and dealing with his patients.

The surgical skills required to perform on a delicate organ such as the eye are not too dissimilar those of a hair follicle. The attention to detail, working with delicate tissue.

FUT and FUE, Body Hair FUE Specialist

Trained in the performance of Follicular Unit Extraction. The individual removal of intact hair units one by one. Also, Follicular Unit Transplant technique. During this time he began to develop his own protocols for graft handling and grafts placement.

With his FUE method, he prefers to use a manual punch tool for the majority of his patients. The manual punch he believes gives him much greater control over each movement. This reduces any risk of damaging the hair follicles and minimises any scarring left after healing. The size of his punch alters dependent on the individual´s hair characteristics. Also, the donor area as Dr Fotis also performs body hair FUE, using hair from the chest, beard mainly to aid hair restoration when the conventional donor has been depleted. He is not a believer in a mega session FUE procedure. Feeling they are to the detriment of healing and donor hair management.

Follicular Unit Transplant. Being able to extract over 4000 grafts on a good FUT candidate. His refined donor management protocols allow his patients with only average skin laxity to maximise their graft numbers in one procedure. This, coupled with his closure technique allows hair growth through the closure line to minimise any signs of extraction. With good healing, it is possible to keep a very short hairstyle without FUT line is obvious.

The refinements he made allowed his technical team to perform their duties in a more efficient and precise manner. Something important for the best care and keeping the hair follicles hydrated. He maintains strict protocols for the preparation and handling of the hair follicles to maximise the yield and quality of every single hair unit removed. Since then has developed his own techniques to perform both FUE and FUT to a high standard for both men and women.
