Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

It is also known as the Strip method of hair restoration. It is a hair transplantation technique where a strip is cut from the back of head and then hairs are separated under microscope from that strip. The patient’s hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, known as follicular units. These follicular units also contain sebaceous (oil) glands, nerve, muscles, etc. In Follicular Unit Transplantation, small units allow the surgeon to safely transplant thousands of grafts in a single session and saves time during transplanting procedure. A maximum of 3000-4000 follicular grafts can be transplanted in one session. This procedure is long and intensive, but the effects are fruitful. Although this procedure leaves linear scar, but with the aid of new technique/methodology at our center, we can reduce the intensity of the scar and the method is known as trichophytic closure.fut-procedure
FUT involves four main activities to facilitate the transplantation

  • Extracting the  donor material
  • Separating  the individual hair unit
  • Preparing the implantation area
  • Implanting the donor hair

Advantages of FUT

It ensures the naturalness of the hair transplant, maximizes hair transplant growth, minimizes trauma to the scalp, and enables the performance of large transplants to get excellent results. more number of grafts can taken from comparatively small area and the zone is permanent. We at our center can harvest even 4000 follicular grafts means more than 8000 hairs at a time.
