Although the newest technique in Hair Transplant is FUE technique, FUT technique which is an older method than FUE is still in common use for the patients who experience hair loss.
FUT technique is referred as “strip method” as well. In this method, the hair transplant specialist cuts a strip from the back and side of the scalp and extracts the hair follicles there. The back and sides are the most suitable areas for getting hair grafts because the follicles in these areas are usually stronger and more resistant. The size of the strip is decided depending on the number of the grafts needed for the hair loss area; usually it is not wider than 1-1.5 centimeters. Once the grafts are harvested from the strip, they are inserted into the hair loss area through small incisions. In FUT Hair Transplant technique, the damage hair follicles may get during the procedure is minimized. It is not necessary to shave the donor area completely for FUT procedure. FUT Hair Transplant technique is suitable for large areas of hair loss.
One of the differences between FUE and FUT Hair Transplant Techniques is that FUT leaves a linear scar while FUE leaves no scar at the donor area; that scar fades away with time however does not completely disappear. Usually, the scar stays under your hair but it can be seen if you cut your hair short.
In FUT Hair Transplant Technique, the transplanted grafts settle in approximately in 7 days. The recovery time is around 10-15 days. The transplanted hair will keep growing for 2-3 weeks and after that it will start to fall out which is completely normal. The transplanted grafts will start growing again after some weeks and reach its last form in 10-12 months.
