FUT: (Strip Surgery) Follicular unit transplant
Grafts/hairs are extracted from the back or sides “permanent” areas of the head by removing a strip of skin tissue containing thousands of hair follicles. Under magnification the harvested tissue is then dissected into bespoke hair grafts containing between 1, 2, 3 or 4 hairs. The incision at the back of the head is then closed with dissolvable stitches/sutures (to be removed within 2 weeks) this method of harvesting will leave a linear scar underneath your existing hair. Providing you do not cut your hair below a grade 3 this should be hardly visible.
This method of hair restoration has been widely performed since 1995 yet fewer surgeons in todays market are offering this procedure.
FUE: Follicular unit extraction
Grafts/hairs are extracted from the back or sides of the head using a mechanical circular punch. Grafts are harvested individually and are determined by the hairs own natural formation. Post operatively incisions remain and are left to heal naturally without the need for sutures or dressings. Within 2 weeks the harvested area will be almost undetectable. In both cases either FUT or FUE the hair design sites/incisions are then made by the Surgeon into the thinning balding regions of the scalp. The team of highly experienced technicians will then begin the process of implanting the grafts, following the pattern made by the surgeon.
