Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) comprises of small clusters of hairs or ‘follicular units’ eradicated in strips from the donor area of hair, and inserted into the recipient area.
This is a minimally invasive hair loss procedure with a brief recovery period and few complications. However, it takes a great deal of experience and skill on the part of the surgeon which is acquired, only after years of practice.
The FUT procedure:
Places single hair units at the front of hairline
Places 2 hair units behind the hairline
Places 3 hair units behind the 2 hair units
Places 4 hair units behind the 3 hair units
Risks and Side Effects of FUT
Risk and side effects of FUT include poor or slow hair growth which further results in damage to the follicles, infection, noticeable scarring, and poor wound healing.
There is also a slight risk for change in the pigmentation of the skin.
The More Advanced Technique of FUE
With FUE, a specialized punch is used to extract the hair from the scalp. The main advantage of this technique is that follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp rather than in larger groups, which prevents the exploitation of stitching.
