Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a hair restoration technique where a patient's hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units. Follicular units also contain sebaceous (oil) glands, nerves, a small muscle, and occasional fine vellus hairs.
While using this technique a light scar is left due to stitching the occipital region. It is stripped and shaped like a wedge.
• It requires very less surgery time along with minimized hair follicle.
• Multiple surgeries for patients with on-going hair loss.
• No necessity of cutting the hair short.
• Multiple transplants with lots of hair in a very short time.
To minimize the pain and scar after the surgery, incisions are made about 1mm deep into recipient’s transplant site.
To minimize the scar on the occipital region, the scar is left with a narrow width on the occipital region. The transplanted hair is penetrated properly in the site to avoid any scar.
