Find out Which Hair Transplant Method is Right for you?

Hair loss is a very common problem and most of the people – whether men or women– are equally suffering from this problem. Hair transplant is the most effective, safe and permanent way to regrow hair in the bald area. It is a very popular method and most of the people rely on this method to regrow their hair. Two popular techniques are in use these days for hair transplants. These techniques are:

  1. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) – A procedure in which ‘follicular units’ are extracted from the donor area of hair in a strip, and implanted into the bald area.
  2. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)- A procedure in which hair follicles are extracted from the patients back of the head with the help of special micro punches under local anesthesia and inserted in the bald area.

Both of these are beneficial and Dubai Cosmetic Surgery – the most reliable and trusted clinic – offers both the techniques of hair transplant. But it is obvious to have a question in mind that which one will be more suitable for this purpose. Here is a comparison of both the techniques that will help you out in finding out which option is right for you.

FUT and FUE Comparison

FUT and FUE: donor area and scarring:

The two techniques – FUE and FUT – mainly differ based on extraction techniques and scarring. Strip extraction or FUT leaves a linear scar on the area from where hair follicles are taken – donor area – while as a result of FUE hair transplant micro scars are left behind in the form of small dots.

FUT and FUE: survival of follicular units or grafts:

The survival rate of follicular units greatly depends on the care of follicular units taken after their extraction. Extracted grafts are vulnerable to dehydration and this is why they are kept in saline solution. The follicular units extracted in the technique of FUE are more sensitive and the technique leaves less protective tissues around the follicles, which ultimately leads to decreased survival rate. On the other hand, the survival rate of hair follicles also depends on how carefully the procedure is performed. If you are ready to undergo a hair transplant at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, you need not worry about this method.

FUT and FUE: density of grafts:

Depending on the requirement, the number of grafts taken varies from person to person. The range for grafts is from 1000 to 5000 follicular units. If the procedure is performed in ideal conditions, both the techniques provide successful and desired results.

FUT and FUE: implanting grafts:

Even after optimal extraction of grafts, the risk lies there in implanting grafts. If grafts are not implanted carefully, there is a possibility that roots will not grow. Right incisions help in quick growth of hair and increased survival rate. The technique for implanting grafts is the same for both the techniques and hair start growing if the procedure is 

performed by an experienced surgeon and his team.

FUT and FUE: healing:

There is no discomfort during the procedure as it is performed under local anesthesia but the time required for healing in both the techniques differs. Healing after FUE is faster and painless because small incisions heal quickly as compared to the linear incision of FUT.

FUT and FUE: shock hair loss:

Shock hair loss is an unpleasant effect of the procedure but it does not affect the entire hair growth as is affects very little hair. Shock hair loss is the condition in which a patient suffers from hair loss after 2 to 6 weeks of the procedure. It is completely normal and occurs because of the weakening of some hair roots and occurs in both the techniques.

Comparison of FUT and FUE on some general issues is explained above and you can go for the suitable one though both the techniques give excellent results and have their pros and cons.
