What is FUT Hair Transplant?
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a process where hairs are transplanted from the permanent donor area (back and sides of the scalp) to the bald or balding areas of the scalp in a strip. This is achieved using naturally-occurring groups of 1, 2, 3, or 4 hairs, called follicular units.
After the proper anesthesia of patient's scalp, the surgeons remove a strip of tissues from donor area, which is then cut into many individual follicular units using microscopic dissection techniques. After the preparation of follicular unit grafts doctors make tiny holes in the patient's scalp called recipient area where grafts are placed. The positioning and arrangement of follicular units depends upon aesthetic qualities of a hair transplant, case-by-case basis, depending on the patients' history of hair loss and like lihood of future hair loss.
