Hair are the framework of human outlook and personality. Unfortunately, we human take baldness as sign of old age. People having baldness or less hair, at low age lack confidence and with lower self esteem. So, they opt of hair transplant technique.
Follicular Unit Transplant is another such technique also known as Strip Hair Transplant.
What is FUT?
This hair transplant technique include taking out a strip of hair from the back of scalp. FUT differs from FUE only by the method of taking donor hair. FUT is suitable for people with more bald area rather than small sites or patches. then is the preparation of follicular grafts. once prepared, implantation of these graft takes place in the recipient area. Before implantation, process include preparation of recipient area by making small incisions.
It starts from the preparation of donor area by designing thee shape of hairline. Our skilled surgeons can carry out a successful, without pain procedure. We numb the donor area by Giving local anaesthesia. It is to ensure that the patient is comfortable enough during the removal of the strip. then we stitch the donor area from where we take the hair strip. The stitching process takes place using latest Trichophytic scar technique. the surrounding hair covers the scar which then heal by growing hair.
Then comes the preparation of follicular units for the transplant.
The donor stripes are then grouped into one, two, three, or four follicles.
Meanwhile, we make incisions on recipient areas using small sharp needles. Then comes the placement of follicles in the incisions.
In the FUT procedure, we take a strip of hair out all at once. taking the donor hair is thus a quick and simple process that takes 15 to 30 minutes. the donor hair are then prepared for implantation into the recipient area.
If you need to cover a large bald are FUT is best. but for a smaller and specific site FUE is suitable as it is painless procedure and recovery is faster.
It is the decision of patient of which procedure he would like to go for. yet our surgeon will also suggests the patient that which procedure he should go for.
In one FUT session, you can have transplantation of 5000 grafts. That is why FUT is suitable for large bald areas. The whole process takes about 4 to 8 hours depending on the number of grafts for implantation. It takes approximately 10 days to 14 days to recover. Once the hair grows it creates a natural look by merging with rest of the hair.
