FUT Hair Transplant: FUT, which stands for Follicular Unit Transplant, is a technique for hair transplant. In this procedure, a strip is removed from the back of the head and sutured, leaving a permanent scar that is concealed by the surrounding hairs. Grafts are removed from the cut skin, which includes a variety of grafts (single hairs, doubles, triples, and fours). They are then placed on the bald area.
FUE Hair Transplant is one of the most popular hair transplant techniques giving a very natural look without any visible scar.
FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction, is the most often used hair transplant technique. There is no scarring, the grafts are removed one by one, and they are implanted using advanced technologies with the greatest safety (graft health). FUE hair transplant is performed since there is no need for a cut and suture. FUE hair transplantation is a simple process.
All hair transplant techniques require shaving of the scalp, but there is a non-shave FUE hair transplant technique that does not require shaving of the scalp. This is one of the cutting-edge hair transplant procedures.
Individual follicular units containing 1 to 4 hair are removed under local anaesthetic with Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE harvesting; this micro removal typically involves tiny punches ranging from 0.6mm to 1.0mm in diameter. The surgeon next punctures the locations for receiving the grafts with extremely small micro blades or fine needles, inserting them in a predetermined density and pattern and angling the wounds in a consistent method to promote a realistic hair pattern.
FUE can be done in a single session or in several short sessions. The surgery can take anywhere from a few hours to extract 200 grafts for a scar correction to two days to harvest 2,500 to 3,000 grafts in a single session. A fox test is used to select candidates for FUE.
FUE can produce highly natural-looking outcomes: FUE harvesting has the advantage of strip harvesting in that it does not require significant regions of scalp tissue to be harvested, resulting in no linear incision on the back of the head and no linear scar. Because individual follicles are removed, only small, punctate scars are left, which are nearly unnoticeable, and post-surgical pain and discomfort are reduced. Micro Grafting FUE recovery takes fewer than 7 days because no sutures removal is required.
