Hair loss can be a frustrating and confidence-affecting experience for both men and women. Whether it's a receding hairline, thinning hair, or complete baldness, hair loss can significantly impact your self-esteem. Fortunately, advancements in hair restoration technology like follicular unit transplantation (FUT) offer effective solutions to achieve a thicker, fuller head of hair.

FUT is a well-established and proven hair transplant technique that delivers natural-looking, permanent results. At Hair Transplant Medical Centre, we utilize the latest FUT techniques combined with our team’s expertise to provide patients with a minimally invasive and highly successful hair restoration solution.

What is a FUT Hair Transplant?

In the follicular unit transplant procedure, a strip of hair-bearing skin is removed from the donor area of the scalp, usually the back of the head. This is why FUT is also known as ‘strip’ surgery.

The long-term donor hair supply will be influenced by how loose (or lax) the scalp skin is and by how many hairs there are per square centimetre of donor scalp. Generally speaking, the FUT procedure gives access to a greater donor hair yield during a lifetime compared with follicular unit extraction (FUE). The strip is then placed under high-powered microscopes and the surgical team meticulously divides it into tiny grafts of individual follicular units of one to four hairs. These grafts are placed in a chilled tissue storage solution until they are transplanted.

The donor area is stitched up and usually then covered by the surrounding hair. After between 10 and 14 days the stitches are removed and the donor area heals to form a linear scar, which our doctors ensure is hidden as much as possible.

FAQ

FUT typically leaves a thin linear scar at the donor site. However, this scar is often hidden within the remaining hair and becomes very faint over time. Additionally, our surgeons at Hair Transplant Medical Centre utilize advanced techniques to minimize scar visibility.

Most patients experience minimal discomfort following FUT and can return to work within a few days. Scalp tenderness and scabbing are expected for the first week, but these will gradually resolve. Strenuous activity should be avoided for a few weeks to allow for optimal healing.

You will start to see new hair growth within a few months after the FUT procedure. However, it may take 12 to 18 months to achieve the final, desired density. Some shedding is normal after this procedure, but the healthy hair follicles will move into the growth phase in time.

The transplanted hair follicles are genetically resistant to balding, resulting in permanent hair growth in the recipient areas. However, some ongoing hair loss may occur in the non-transplanted areas.

As with any surgical procedure, FUT carries some potential risks, such as infection, bleeding, and temporary numbness at the donor site. However, these risks are minimized by choosing a highly qualified and experienced surgeon who adheres to strict safety protocols.

Both follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) are hair transplant techniques, but they differ in how the donor hair follicles are harvested. FUT removes a strip of scalp, while FUE extracts individual follicles. FUT can be more cost-effective for larger grafts, while a FUE hair transplant may result in less scarring. During your free consultation at Hair Transplant Medical Centre, our surgeons will discuss which method is best suited for your needs.
