Hair loss is a common problem that affects millions of people worldwide. Fortunately, there are several hair restoration techniques available today that can help restore your hairline and confidence. Two of the most popular hair transplantation techniques are Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). We’ll discuss the key differences between FUE, FUT hair transplantation techniques, and then we’ll introduce you to an advanced FUE technique called “Robot Hair Transplant.”
FUT or Follicular Unit Transplantation
is the method that involves taking a skin with hair follicles from back scalp to transplant onto the balding areas. It is requires local anesthesia and typically takes several hours to complete. The procedure leaves a linear scar on the back of the head, which can be hidden under longer hair.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
is a minimally invasive technique that involves harvesting individual hair follicles from the donor area using a specialized punch tool and transplanted onto the balding areas of the scalp. It doesn’t leave a linear scar and shorter healing time.
FUE hair transplantation typically has a shorter recovery time compared to FUT. With FUE, patients can return to their normal activities within a few days after the procedure, while recovery from FUT can take up to two weeks.
FUE & FUT – Which is the best method?
While both FUT and FUE hair transplantation techniques are effective, the choice of the technique largely depends on the patient’s specific hair loss condition and desired outcomes. The surgeon can help you determine which technique is right for you based on your hair loss pattern, hair density, and scalp condition.
FUT and FUE are two popular hair transplantation techniques that offer effective solutions for hair loss. The choice between the two techniques depends on the patient’s specific hair loss condition and desired outcomes.
