1. Follicular unit transplant (FUT) is a method in which a linear strip of hair-bearing skin from the back or the side of the scalp is extracted and then dissected to separate individual grafts.

2. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a method in which individual follicular unit grafts containing 1 to 4 hairs are removed from the patient's donor area under local anaesthesia and then individually transplanted to the recipient (bald) area.

This method will permanently change your appearance to a more youthful look.

What is Follicular Unit?

Follicular unit (FU describes how scalp hair normally grows. It grows in clusters of follicles, like little islands of one to four follicles on a plane of scalp skin. Each FU has a distinct collection of cells, nerves and blood vessels.

How an FUE hair transplant treatment is Performed

The physician uses tiny punches of between 0.6mm and 1.0mm in diameter to remove individual follicular units from the patient's scalp. The device makes a tiny circular incision around the follicular unit to extract the graft. The graft is then extracted directly from the scalp and then arranged for placement. Working with high-powered stereo microscopes, the follicular grafts remain in optimal condition. Follicular units (grafts) are arranged into groups depending on the number of hairs contained within each follicle. Then the physician executes the final part of the procedure, inserting the individual grafts in place.The placement of these follicular units is what brings natural-looking results and artistic difference.

The tiny scars left behind after the follicular units are extracted heal completely within a few days.

FUE takes place in a single long session of 6 to 12 hours or multiple small sessions depending on the number of grafts. It also depends upon surgeon's experience, speed in harvesting and patient's characteristics.

FUE incorporates the latest, minimally invasive technology and advanced grafting techniques.

FUT vs FUE: Comparing Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to the Strip Procedure.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) are usually mistakenly considered as contrasting hair transplant techniques. FUE, as a matter of fact, is a sub-type of FUT where follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp rather than being microscopically separated from a strip of tissue that has already been removed (through the strip harvesting technique). Thus, during FUT, individual follicular units can be obtained in one of two ways; either through strip harvesting and microscopic dissection or by FUE.

When comparisons are being done between FUT and FUE, what is actually being compared is the way follicular units are extracted (strip harvesting and dissection vs. direction extraction). The type of grafts (follicular units) and the process for transplanting grafts in the recipient area is more or less the same.

Results produced by present FUE hair transplantation and Strip Procedures are very normal and dense in the hands of expert hair restoration. However, FUE and strip harvesting are very dissimilar techniques and are handled very differently.
