Follicular Unit Extraction

FUE Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), sometimes referred to as follicular transfer (FT), is one of two foremost methods of obtaining follicular units. Follicular units are naturally occurring groups of one to four hairs that are used for hair transplantation procedures. FUE hair transplant methods are popular in the United States and around the world, as they can offer patients pros compared to the Strip Method (FUT), depending on their expectations and goals.

FUE is commonly used as an alternative to FUT, when the scalp may be too tight for a strip excision. The FUE method also allows the surgeon to harvest the finer hair from the nape of the neck that are frequently used around the frontal hairline or even for a facial hair transplant, usually the eyebrows.

Although for many patients, follicular unit extraction may provide the greatest results, however this is not always the case. For example, the follicles are harvested from a much larger donor area than with a FUT procedure. Donor site scars may become visible over time and the hair in the donor area may become more sparsely covered. FUE hair transplants also take longer to perform and therefore can have a higher price tag. In addition, the maximum graft yield and hair retention rate is generally is lower than with the FUT procedure.

Follicular Unit Transplantation

FUT Hair Transplant

The world’s most common hair transplant method, the FUT or ‘strip method’, is widely used around the world and generally offers exceptional patient outcomes.   The FUT is favored for its both high hair regrowth and retention rates, as well as its low cost.

The FUT process begins with the removal of a strip of skin from the back of the head, known as the donor area. Under a microscope, this strip is then divided into individual follicular units. These follicular units will then be re-inserted into the recipient area individually through tiny slits in the scalp where new hair growth is desired. FUT hair transplantation takes a few hours to complete and are usually quicker than an FUE hair transplant.

However, the recovery times are slightly longer following a FUT procedure, but any discomfort is slight and easily managed. A majority of patients recover quickly and are able to return to normal routines after just a few days.  Your Patient Advisor will provide all the information you need to safeguard that your aftercare regime is in place and fully understood in order to achieve optimal results.
