BENEFITS OF STRIP REMOVAL FOR HAIR TRANSPLANTATION

FUT stands for “Follicular Unit Transplantation,” which means that, same as FUE, the follicular units (groupings of 1, 2, 3, and on some occasions, 4 hair follicles) are implanted one at a time to give a permanent natural-looking head of hair.  The FUT process involves removing a small strip of tissue from the donor area where hair is the thickest and healthiest and transplanting the hair follicles elsewhere on the scalp. With strip removal hair transplantation:

  • More grafts can be transplanted in one session
  • Final desired results may occur sooner
  • Grafts harvested by the strip method tend to be a little more robust
  • A very thin scar can be easily hidden by most haircut styles

Recovery time is short and pain easily managed with medication. Many people can return to work as early as the next day.
