In order to transfer the hair follicles that had been extracted in the first stage to the balding areas, channels of the required size will be opened. A certain number of channels are going to be opened to the previously bordered area. The number of channels and the number of grafts to be transplanted should be equal. Metal blade are going to be used in FUE technique to open the channels. Channels angle and frequency are the most important factors affecting naturalness in hair transplant.
