Hair transplant techniques are FUE and FUT. Two main techniques are used to obtain follicles for hair transplantation: FUT and FUE.
We have two hair transplant techniques
In follicular unit transplantation (FUT):
The surgeon will use a scalpel to cut out a strip of scalp skin from the back of the head. The incision is typically several inches long. This is then closed with stitches. The surgeon next separates the removed portion of scalp into small sections using a magnifying lens and sharp surgical knife. When implanted, these sections will help achieve natural-looking hair growth.
In follicular unit extraction (FUE):
The hair follicles are cut out directly from the back of the head through hundreds to thousands of tiny punch incisions. The surgeon makes tiny holes with a blade or needle in the area of your scalp that’s receiving the hair transplant. They gently place hairs in these holes. During one treatment session, a surgeon may transplant hundreds or even thousands of hairs. After, the graft, gauze, or bandages will cover your scalp for a few days.
We prefer FUE technique because of advantages of FUE;
- No linear scar in donor area
- Decreased healing time in the donor area
- No limitations on strenuous exercise after the procedure
- Less post-op discomfort in the donor area
- Useful for repairing donor scars that cannot be excised
- Provides an alternative when the scalp is too tight for a strip excision
- Enables one to harvest finer hair from the nape of the neck
- Makes it theoretically possible to harvest non-scalp hair
