What is FUT?

Very similar to Follicular Unit Extraction, Follicular Unit Transplant also offer natural looking results. The implantation process involves placing follicular grafts in the thinning areas, or known as recipient areas.

However, extraction wise, for FUT, all of your hair is removed at once in a quick and simple process, unlike FUE, in which each individual hair graft is extracted one by one.

FUT Procedure

1. After your scalp is anesthetized, a strip of tissue is removed from the donor area. Once extracted, this donor strip is slivered into several independent follicular units using microscopic dissection techniques.
2. As these follicular unit grafts are being prepared, small incisions are made in the scalp, which are called recipient sites, where the grafts are placed.
3. The arrangement and positioning of these follicular unit grafts dictate the aesthetic qualities of a hair transplant. Therefore, this arrangement differs with each patient according to the patient’s history of hair loss and probability of future hair loss.

Advantages and Limitations of Hair Transplant

Treatment Preparation

· Those with any diseases need surgical clearance from their medical specialist.


Q1: Is this better than FUE?
A1: Some say graft quality in FUE is better as single grafts are extracted from donor area one by one. However, the FUE procedure requires shaving of the recipient site. In addition, FUT may be more suitable for those with extensive hair loss.

Q2: Should I choose FUT or FUE?
A2: In general, FUT yields the most donor hair. Therefore, the procedure is best suited for more extensive hair loss and in patients where the main concern is the maximum use of one’s donor supply. The hair is maximized because of the precise nature of stereo-microscopic dissection and the fact that all the hair is harvested from the mid-portion of the permanent zone where hair is most dense and stable. A limitation of FUT is that it leaves a line scar in the donor area. With normal styling, this is easily covered with hair, but it precludes someone from wearing their hair very short. FUE is more appropriate for patients who would like to keep their hair very short or who cannot limit strenuous activities in the post-op period. In general, younger patients who need to keep their styling options flexible choose FUE, whereas those who desire the most coverage opt for FUT.
