“FUE” (Follicular Unit Extraction)
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive procedure for performing follicular unit hair transplantation. The technique developed very fast since it promises a “scarless”, “stitchless” procedure. The FUE procedure uses a small punch to extract each follicular unit one by one.
The follicular units are extracted by placing the punch around a single follicular unit and cutting a small circle through the skin around that follicular unit. The follicular unit is then gently pulled up and away from the loose tissue underneath the skin.
“FUT” (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is the other name for “strip” hair transplant procedure. The plastic surgeon removes a linear strip of hair and tissue from the back of the scalp which is then dissected into single follicular units by technicians and then relocated into bald or thinning areas over the crown. The donor site wound is closed by surgical technique.
The only major drawback of the strip method is that the patient is left with a linear scar on the back. Scar is so minimal that it is not seen even when the back hair is cut till half a centimeter. The biggest advantage of FUT is that; there is very little graft loss while harvesting.
