Do You Need FUT or FUE?
Most hair transplant clinics perform the two, common approaches. The classic, FUT is also referred to as the strip method. It’s still most suitable for many clients today who wish to transfer a high volume of grafts at once, or who have sparse donor hair areas. The downside is a long scar left at the back of the head due to a strip of scalp excised to create grafts.
FUE stands for follicular unit extraction. A number of devices and brands use this punch-tool technology to remove individual grafts from a donor area, rather than dissect a strip. Tiny, circular incisions around each hair or small group of follicles are punched out one-by-one. They typically measure less than 1mm,so they are easily hidden and close quickly after surgery. In the long run, harvest sites that are well-dispersed in the donor area will not be visible, even if the hair is worn very short. Known as the “scarless” approach, FUE is suitable for many types of patients but does carry a slightly higher price tag.
