One Of The Popular Questions: FUT Hair Transplant or FUE Hair Transplant?
One of the most frequently asked questions today is is FUT hair transplant better or FUE hair transplant?
What is FUT Hair Transplant Technique?
The FUT technique, which was widely used in ancient times, is the division of the scalp as a piece from the donor area on surgical tables and implanting it in the area to be transplanted.
What is FUE Technique?
The FUE technique, on the other hand, is the most widely used donor area extraction technique today. It is the technique of removing hair follicles one by one from the donor area with devices called micromotors.
Advantage of FUE
The biggest advantages of the fue technique over the fut technique are that there is minimal scarring in the donor area, post-operative surgical area care is as easy as the patient can do (click here for post-FUE hair transplant care), and there is no need for a professional team after the operation as there is no suture. Due to these features, FUE hair transplantation method is used much more widely today.
In addition, since we can use a much larger area as a donor in the FUE method, we have a chance to receive more grafts compared to the FUT technique, which means hair transplantation to more areas in one operation.
Summary: FUT Hair Transplant or FUE Hair Transplant
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants are done by taking individual hair follicles out of your skin and implanting them elsewhere on your body. This will make the hair in the new area look thicker.
FUE was meant to replace the “classic” follicular unit transplantation (FUT) technique. This procedure was done by taking an entire piece of skin or scalp along with the follicles and transplanting the skin on the target area.
FUE has become more popular than FUT because it’s less likely to lead to a “hair plug” look, where sections of skin or hair don’t match the surrounding areas. It also won’t leave a large scar like FUT does.
The best candidate for a FUE hair transplant is someone with thinning hair or balding who still has enough hair nearby to use for a transplant.
You may not be eligible for a FUE hair transplant if you don’t have enough healthy or thick hair to transplant to the thinning or balding area.
