Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a surgical hair restoration technique that relocates hair from the donor area to the recipient area.
The FUT procedure is one of the two most common techniques used in hair surgeries today. Local anesthesia will be given. The grafts are harvested from the tissue which are than used for the implanting into the recipient area.
With the FUT harvesting method, the follicular units are separated under a microscope. This eliminates the likelihood of graft injury or transection and increases the rate of graft survival after they are transferred.
In their new positions, the transplanted hair follicles grow for the rest of your life. They produce real hair that grows and can be combed and trimmed like normal.
Hair loss is different in every individual. It is important to consult with a licensed physician as there are various hair transplant options and benefits available.
