What Are Ellis FUE Punches?
Ellis FUE Punches are a type of punch instrument in hair transplant surgery. Hair transplant doctors use them when performing FUE hair transplants. The surgeon harvests individual hairs from the donor area and transplants them to balding areas on the head. The punches come in various sizes, with most being between 1 millimeter and 2 millimeters wide.
Ellis FUE Punches can be solid or hollow-tipped with an extra-large clearance hole. Solid punches have small holes at the bottom of each tip for suction. These punches allow the surgeon to extract single hairs without damaging any surrounding tissue. Also, the device enables the donor plugs to exit from the end of the punch, minimizing clogging during follicular extraction. Moreover, Ellis FUE punches maintain a consistent depth of cut in the donor sites.
