We all start to become familiar with the hair transplantation due to Media and all the success stories that are being told.
The two main methods used in hair transplantation are FUT / STRIP (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). The most important difference between these methods is the way in which the hair transplantation is done. FUE is a modern technique , used since 2004 and is the successor to the FUT technique.
FUT involves making a cut into the scalp in order to harvest the grafts, while FUE involves taking the grafts from the donor area, one by one, with a special instrument.
As for the wounds, FUT will leave a scar in the scalp ( which is a problem for those persons who love having short hair), while FUE will not leave any scars and no stitches or cuts will be done during the procedure.
FUE is done under local anesthesy, so no pain will be felt during the operation.
Another great advantage of the FUE technique is the short recovery time. The patient can start his normal activities in a few hours after the surgery.
Because of the amazing results with FUE technique, FUT is not preferred nowadays.
Fue technique is ideal for the treatment of incipient and advanced cases.
