Different types of hair transplant techniques are FUE, FUT and advanced FUT called DHI. Basically FUT involves cutting and harvesting of a piece of strip from back of the head from donor area and stitching it up, cutting hair follicles independently from it and then transplanting them.  

FUE involves removing single hair follicles at a time with motorized punches and transplanting them or implanting them to recipient area/bald area.

DHI is advanced FUE where hair transplant surgeon removes each follicles manually with very sharp punches with one step implantation so debt direction angle is perfect so that there is no motor damage to the roots. Motor causes heat and fiction which can damage roots

Hair transplant is basically of two different types. And, that is only difference in the extraction method how we take out the grafts. The older method was F U T or strip method in which a hair bearing strip of skin was totally taken out from back side of the head and then separated into individual grafts.

And the grafts were placed in tiny slits , made in the bald area. The other method, which was an improvement is called F U E, which I have, which we started in 1997. F U E is the basic technique in which grafts are taken out one by one without a long strip being excised without any stitch and without any stitch scars, that method is called F U E or follicular unit extraction.

Please do not be confused by a lot of different things. They're different clinics have put for F U E those are only trade names. The basic idea is to take out graphs one by one from the donate area and place them in that bald area. The stitchless method has certain benefits. One of course is the obvious one .

There will be no stitch. There'll be no long stitch scare there will be less, very less pain. And one of the most important benefits of F U E is that we can take graft from beard also, we can take out body hair grafts also. The strip or F U T method is a outdated method still practice, by doctors who do not know or who are not adept at F U E cannot take out strips from beard and the body doner areas.

That will be very bad and counterproductive so F U E has enabled us to take out grafts makes it more comfortable to the patient also. And at the same time increases the total number of grafts. We can easily transplant 6,000 to 10,000 grafts by that stitch less. F U E method by taking out grafts strong beard and body donar areas, also apart from your scalp donor area.

So ingest in summary, there are two basic techniques, the stitch method, which is called the FUT method and other is FUE the stitch less method , thank you.

Currently hair transplant surgeons focus on dense hair implantation and quick hair transplant which are modifications of FUE techniques.

While FUT procedure involves taking a thin strip of skin from the back of the head, the FUE procedure is more minimally invasive as it involves small punches made with 0.7 to 0.8 mm punches in the donor area.
