Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T)

Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T) is the process in which the hairs of a patient are transplanted in naturally occurring follicular units or groups of hair. These tiny units in Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T) allow the cosmetic surgeon to transplant thousands of grafts of hair in a single session. Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T) is considered as advanced from other procedures because it uses smaller grafts and produces a natural look.

Why Choose Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T)?

There are several advantages of Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T). The main advantage is the ability to undertake large sessions of hair transplantation. It also allows the process of hair restoration to be completed within a short period of time.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T) uses a large number of grafts in every session to preserve the donor supply through reduction of the frequency of making incisions in the donor space. Extraction of a large number of grafts in Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T) allows the grafts to make a minor frontal hairline, thus giving the patient a fuller look.

What to Expect in Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T)

The process of Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T) starts with the plastic surgeon and their team making you comfortable while they harvest hair from your safe zone or donor area which is not affected by baldness. The final outcome of Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T) is influenced by the amount of hair that is extracted from the donor space. A section of hair is marked out by the physician where they make a small incision.

The area is locally anesthetized before removing hair. The space is incised with a blade, and is closed by dissolvable stitches. The process of Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T) is convenient for the patient as it allows them to get to work on the following day. It is recommended by the cosmetic surgeons to rest for a period of 10 days after surgery if the person works in a stressful environment. After Follicular Unit Transplantation (F.U.T) surgery, it takes about a year for complete hair growth but results can be seen within the first three months after the procedure.
