What is the FUT Method?

FUT, or Follicular Unit Transplantation, is a surgical procedure in which a strip of hair is removed from the back of the scalp, where hair growth is usually robust, and transplanted onto the recipient area, where hair loss has occurred. The strip of hair is then divided into smaller units known as grafts, which are then implanted into the recipient area. The FUE method, on the other hand, involves the extraction of individual follicular units from the donor area using a small punch tool. The grafts are then transplanted into the recipient area. This method leaves tiny, circular scars that are virtually invisible and does not involve the removal of a strip of scalp, making it less invasive than the FUT method.

Overall, the FUE method is considered better by some individuals because it typically results in less scarring, has a quicker recovery time, and can be used to obtain a high number of grafts without leaving a visible linear scar. However, it should be noted that the choice of technique depends on individual patient factors and the recommendation of the surgeon performing the procedure.

How Does the Strip Method Work?

FUT is a hair transplant technique that involves removing a strip of skin from the donor area, usually the back of the head, and then dissecting it into smaller grafts or follicular units. These units are then transplanted into the recipient area, where hair growth is desired.

The procedure starts with the scalp being numbed with local anesthesia. The technician then removes a strip of skin from the donor area using a scalpel, which is then closed with stitches or staples.

The strip of skin is then dissected under a microscope into individual follicular units, which are typically 1-4 hairs each. The recipient area is then prepared with tiny incisions, and the follicular units are carefully transplanted into the desired area.

Procedures Differences

What are the Benefits?

One of the significant benefits of the FUT hair transplant is that it can provide you with natural-looking results. The hair from the back of the scalp is used, which closely matches the hair growth pattern of the recipient area. 

Additionally, FUT is a permanent solution for hair loss, and the results are long-lasting. Furthermore, the success rate for FUT hair transplant is high, making it a popular choice for those seeking a hair restoration procedure. That being said, FUE is considered to have more benefits than FUT due to its less invasive nature, quicker recovery time, and ability to extract individual follicular units. However, FUT can be a good option for individuals who require a large number of grafts, and it may be more cost-effective for some patients. Ultimately, the choice of technique should be made in consultation with a qualified hair transplant surgeon who can evaluate the individual patient’s needs and recommend the most appropriate method.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with our team at Nova Medical Hair Transplant to assess your candidacy for the procedure. During the procedure, a strip of hair is removed from the back of your scalp, and the area is sutured together. The strip is then divided into grafts, which are placed in the recipient area using small incisions. The procedure can take several hours to complete, depending on the extent of your hair loss.

What to Expect After the Procedure

After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort and swelling, which can be managed with medication. It is also normal to experience some shedding of the transplanted hair in the first few weeks. However, the hair will start to grow back after a few months, and you can expect to see significant results after six to twelve months.

It is important to follow post-operative care instructions provided by our team to ensure proper healing and the best results.

Who is a Candidate?

Choosing the Right Clinic for your Hair Restoration Treatment

FUT is a suitable option for you if you have significant hair loss or thinning, particularly in the crown and frontal areas of the scalp. Additionally, individuals with a healthy donor area on the back of the scalp are good candidates for FUT hair transplant.

During the consultation process, our team at Nova Medical Hair Transplant will evaluate your medical history, scalp condition, and hair loss pattern to determine if FUT is the right option for you.

How Long Is The Recovery?

The recovery time after a FUT hair transplant generally takes about 2-3 weeks. During the initial recovery period, it’s important for you to rest and avoid any strenuous physical activities.

In the first week, you may experience some discomfort, swelling, and mild pain. At this point you will need to wear a bandage to protect the donor area, which will be removed after a few days.

By the second week, the swelling and pain should have subsided, and the scabs from the transplant sites will begin to fall off.

Most patients can resume their normal activities by the third week, although strenuous exercise should still be avoided.

It’s important to note that new hair growth typically starts after 3-4 months, and the final results can be seen after about a year. Following your expert’s specific instructions is crucial for a successful and safe recovery.
