FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), also known as strip surgery which is today’s gold standard hair procedure. Follicular Unit Transplantation is a hair restoration technique where a strip of skin having small clusters of hair or follicular units are removed from the donor area of hair (the area in the back and sides of the scalp where hair is more resistant to balding) and inserted into the recipient area (the bald area of your head) as individual follicular units (naturally occurring groups of 1-4 hairs) so that it will look totally natural and be undetectable as a hair transplant.
The Strip or “FUT” is suited for patients who have significantly reduced doner area as compared with the FUE. Although a small linear scar is left following the procedure the FUT does have the benefit of being able to extract more hair roots per follicular graft which can often result in a greater density than the FUE procedure. The FUT is also priced slightly lower than the FUE as it requires less surgical time than FUE.
There are a few considerations before we can take the strip. Firstly, the pliability of the skin, secondly, the density of the donor site and thirdly how many hairs do we need to complete the job. Also every patient has different requirements. Once the candidate is ready, the surgeon will mark out and shave the area required.
The difference between FUE and FUT is that during FUT the surgeon removes an entire strip of donor skin from the back of the head and extracts the hair follicles from this strip. However, in FUE, the individual follicles are taken directly from the scalp.
In FUT, the entire strip of the hair is harvested in one go and then dissected into individual follicles later.
