123FUE vs FUT44

Most Common hair transplant Methods :

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) are the two most commonly used hair transplant methods (Follicular Unit Extraction). Both of these procedures help to restore hair that is fuller and more natural-looking. These treatments are similar in that they produce completely natural-looking results. Other distinctions between the two ways should be considered while selecting which is best for you.

In most societies, baldness is becoming a rising problem among the young and some older people. That could easily drive someone insane, couldn’t it?! A hair transplant is a procedure that adds hair to a region of your head where your hair is thinning or bald. Hair can be transplanted from other regions of your body or from areas of your head where your hair is thicker.

What's the Difference?

The way the hair is extracted is the fundamental difference between a FUE and a FUT hair transplant. During a FUT hair transplant, a strip of hair from the back of the head is extracted, resulting in a linear scar, whereas during a FUE hair transplant, individual follicular units are extracted and transplanted, resulting in substantially less scarring overall—a FUE scar would appear as a small dot. Many people who have had a FUT hair transplant prefer to grow their hair longer in order to hide linear scars. FUT hair transplants require less time than FUE hair transplants, though this varies depending on the patient and the amount of hair that needs to be transplanted.

FUE is a more recent technique in which a portion of the donor area is shaved and then individual strands of hair are cut out using circular incisions. The FUE process is time-consuming since each graft must be extracted manually and directly from the scalp by a specialist. The extracted grafts are then inserted into holes created in the bald area, similar to FUT. The scarring from this surgery is small and circular, measuring up to a millimeter in diameter. It depends on how the hair follicles are extracted; the punch instrument might leave hundreds or even thousands of scars. After healing, these puncture scars may appear as little white dots. It’s important to note that each of these follicle scars has one to four strands.

FUT, also known as FUSS, is the most common and traditional method of hair transplantation (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery). FUT entails extracting a strip of tissue from the back of the skull, referred to as the “donor” site, and bringing it to a special room where it is cleansed and separated into grafts. The dissected grafts are then inserted into holes drilled in the bald area of the head, referred to as the “recipient” site. This hair transplant surgery is performed under local anesthetic and can be done as an outpatient procedure. Furthermore, FUT surgery has a higher risk of causing greater edema and pain than the FUE method, although individual results may vary. In general, FUE vs. FUT: FUT hair surgery provides access to a larger lifetime donor hair output than FUE.
