Suppose you’ve decided that a hair transplant is just what you need to feel more confident or to bring back what was lost over time. Once you’ve made your decision, there’s still something on the horizon – choosing the best hair transplant method. There are two common methods of hair transplantation: the traditional strip removal technique and the newer technique. Hairsure Clinic team recommends the best transplant method for their patients along with the reasons.
In hair transplantation, certain parts of the scalp that are resistant to baldness are removed and transferred to the bald areas. The bald areas of the scalp are located on the sides and back of the head. This transplanted area will usually grow hair throughout your life as it is genetically resistant to baldness. The transplant will look more natural if only a few strands are moved per session.
There are a total of 2 types of hair transplant methods at Hairsure Clinic. Let us see in detail about the procedures used in hair transplantation in this article.
What is a hair transplant?
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique performed by trained plastic surgeons. In this procedure, the surgeon removes hair follicles from the scalp donor area and gently places them on the bald area.
Two techniques are known in modern hair transplantation – FUE and FUT.
Hair transplant methods:
Depending on the patient’s needs and the doctor’s diagnosis, the surgeon will recommend one of two hair transplant methods. Both types of hair transplant are available.
FUT Follicular Unit Transplantation:
FUT stands for Follicular Unit Transplant and is one of the oldest hair transplant methods. It is still used for hair transplantation in many countries. The first requirement for using FUT is that you must have enough hair on the back of your head. In this technique, layers of skin in the form of strips of different sizes are removed. These strips are then divided into smaller pieces with special equipment and under a microscope. These dinner strips are grafted onto the bald spots. Finally, the skin is sutured together. This procedure is more like skin surgery, wherein the individual can pass out during and requires intensive care. Recovery takes longer as well after the procedure.
FUE hair transplant method was introduced by researchers and hair transplant experts, which is better than the FUT method and the hair transplantation results are much better.
This is called Follicular Unit Extraction because this Hair transplant does not require strips of skin like the FUT method. Only groups or individually hair follicles are separated from the back and donor area with a unique tool. However, it is implanted in the desired bald spot with a needle to allow tiny incisions to receive the hair follicles.
This hair transplant method does not require surgery. Typically, 1,000 to 1,500 hair follicles are transferred from the donor to the recipient area and may require several visits depending on the hair and baldness.
Seeing the results of a hair transplant requires patience. The conditions of patients vary in the first few months after hair transplantation. There is usually no stable condition in terms of the density of hair transplanted within the first few months. However, it will take about a year for the final hair transplant to become apparent.
