Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
Easily confused with FUE, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) sounds equally complicated. This is a vastly different procedure carried out in UK hair transplant clinics, but its results and success cannot be argued with.
Hair transplant patients looking to recapture their youthful hairline and boost their self-confidence will find Follicular Unit Transplantation an effective solution.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):
- Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) involves transplanting follicular units to bald areas.
- Follicular unit extraction (FUE) and FUT result in similar hair-placement, but employ different techniques.
- FUT is a surgical treatment, in which a strip of scalp at the back of your head is removed.
- Specialised microscopes are used to examine this strip before removal, and after re-insertion the hairs grow and function as normal.
- Follicular unit transplantation causes a linear scar at the back of the head. This may well be a deciding factor for some patients, who feel they want to avoid this. Your surgeon will be happy to discuss this and answer any questions you have.
- As this procedure involves surgery, extensive post-op care is required.
It’s perfectly understandable to feel somewhat hesitant and overwhelmed by the variety of different hair loss treatments available. However, one of the most important aspects of our daily work is giving patients the care and advice they need to reach the right decision.
The journey to a full head of hair need not be difficult – trust us to make it as easy as possible.
