Hair Transplant FUT FUE
Two major hair transplant methods are Follicular Unit Transplant(FUT) or stripped method, and Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE) method. The only difference between these methods is how the surgeon harvests the hair follicles from the back area. In FUT, the surgeon strip the hair follicles from there. The surgeon will then stitch the donor scalp. The stripped follicular units are then divided into hundred to thousand grafts which contain single or few hair strands.
The number of grafts needed may vary for each person depending on the severity of hair loss, quality, hair type and other factors. the surgeon then transplants the grafts to the balding area using the micro punches. The surgeon will make tiny holes and delicately put the hair grafts there. In other hands, in FUE, the surgeon individually remove the follicular unit from the donor area. In the FUE procedure, you may need to shave the back of your head. The harvesting will only leave small red dots which will be healed in few weeks. The rest of the procedure is the same with the FUE procedure.
