The Follicular Unit transplant (FUT) method is the industry gold standard, widely considered to be the most effective method of hair transplantation. In FUTtechnique a patient’s hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units. Follicular units also contain sebaceous (oil) glands, nerves, a small muscle, and occasional fine vellus hairs. In Follicular Unit Transplantation these small units allow the surgeon to safely transplant thousands of grafts in a single session, which maximizes the cosmetic impact of the procedure. Older hair transplant procedures are often prepared using the naked eye or low-level magnification loupes, which may increase the likelihood of damage to hair follicles. Instead, this process uses the most up-to-date technology, including high-resolution stereo microscopes. The result is a more natural look that simply isn’t possible with older methods.In a properly-performed follicular unit transplant, the results will mimic the way hair grows in nature and will be undetectable as a hair transplant.
A FUT Hair Transplant is done under local anaesthetic. A strip of hair is removed from the donor area, which is located at the back of the head where the hair follicles are permanent and not affected by thinning and balding.Once the follicles have been removed, they are dissected into follicular units (also known as grafts) under a microscope, and prepared to be inserted into the recipient site. The recipient site is prepared by making tiny slits where the follicles are then placed.Once the follicles are placed in the slits on the recipient site, the hair will grow naturally.An Advance Clinic FUT Hair Transplant is the fastest method to cover largebald areas in a single 4-6hour session in one of our specialized clinics or hospitals.
