Are you a Candidate?

Have you considered options for a hair transplant, but you aren’t sure what the procedure involves or if it is the right choice for you? Answer a few simple questions to see if you are a good candidate for FUE Hair Transplant.

The Strip Method

FUT is short for follicular unit transplant. The method consists of taking a thin strip from the donor region of the patient’s scalp at the lower, back of the head where hair growth is most dense. The excised ‘strip’ of the scalp is then dissected by hand under a stereomicroscope to create individual hair grafts. The hair surgeon can create numerous grafts from just one strip- 2000-3000 grafts are not unusual. The excision is closed with sutures, and the implantation process to balding areas will then be the same as with FUE.

Procedures Differences

Follicular Unit Extraction

FUE utilizes a tiny punch tool to remove each hair graft from the donor area, one by one. The small punches of scalp tissue are typically less than 1 mm wide, so the holes close easily on their own, without stitches.

The advantage of a Toronto FUT Hair Transplant

The number one advantage of a Toronto FUT hair transplant is that it usually provides the most substantial amount of hair grafts that can be transplanted in a single session.

If you’re someone who wants a thick, luscious, full head of hair, and you’ve already lost a significant amount on top, the strip method might be your preferred route to take.

If you and your hair loss specialist decide to combine procedures, you’ll undergo an FUT hair transplant in Toronto first to maximize graft yield. Once healed, FUE can selectively add to the hairline and disguise scarring.

Sometimes, people visit us years after they’ve had a hair transplant and they’ve experienced a widening of their scar over time. We can strategically implant individual follicles in your FUT scar to blend it in with the rest of your hair. You can finally be rid of any evidence of your procedure and show your scalp worry-free again.

Comparing What’s the Difference Between the Two?

The most important thing that many clients are worried about is scarring. The reality is that even the most skilled professionals cannot altogether avoid it. However, between FUT and FUE, FUT leaves a more visible scar that is usually very thin and linear. Longer hairstyles or additional FUE and tattoo work can help diminish its appearance.

Your private consultation will allow you to talk about your goals and your concerns with your hair transplant surgeon. They’ll analyze your hair growth and progression of balding, then make a recommendation for you. Sometimes, a combination of these two approaches will actually deliver the best outcome in the long run. The individualization of planning for each patent is essential to create results that suit each person and last a long time.

For a lot of men and women, especially those who are experiencing a significant balding, FUT is more capable of giving them that full hair coverage they desire. The recovery time will be closer to two weeks instead of one, and some additional restrictions post-procedure ensure safe healing.

Which method is right for you?

You may read opinions about the superiority of a given method, but the truth is that each client’s needs dictate the best approach. Between the two, FUT is the more ‘traditional’ approach when it comes to hair transplants. The main advantage for the FUT hair transplant in Toronto is that large numbers of grafts can be transferred in one session. For those who desire dramatic changes, or who have significant balding on the crown, strip excision may be the only way to gather enough grafts for a satisfying result. The drawbacks would be the longer healing time and residual scar.

When patients select the FUE process, they typically need to adopt a temporary, short cut because the back of the head must be shaved. FUE devices are often partially automated which can ensure minimal scalp trauma and consistency of hair punches. The machines still require skilled operation, however. FUE devices can damage grafts causing transection when not handled properly. The avoidance of a long scar is the primary draw for this advanced approach, and when carried out in the hands of an expert, follicles are redistributed flawlessly, without leaving signs of donor area depletion or visible scars. The number of grafts implanted in one session will be lower using FUE.
