Hair loss is very common problem and most of the people – whether men or women equally – are suffering from this problem. Hair transplant is the most effective, safe and permanent method to regrow hair in the bald area. Hair transplant is very popular and most of the people rely on this method to regrow their hair. There are two popular techniques that are in use these days for hair transplant. These techniques are Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Both of these are beneficial and Dubai Cosmetic Surgery – most reliable and trusted clinic – offers both the techniques of hair transplant in Dubai. But it is obvious to have 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: donor area and scarring:
The two techniques – FUE and FUT – mainly differ on the basis of extraction techniques and scarring. Strip extraction or FUT leaves 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 survival rate of hair follicles also depends on how carefully procedure is performed. If you are ready to undergo hair transplant in Dubai at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, you need not to 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, risk lies there in implanting grafts. If grafts are not implanted carefully, there is possibility that roots will not grow. Right incisions help in quick growth of hair and increased survival rate. Technique for implanting grafts is same for both the techniques and hair start growing if procedure is performed by experienced surgeon and his team.
FUT and FUE: healing:
There is no discomfort during the procedure as it is performed under local anesthesia but time required for healing in both the techniques differs. Healing after FUE is faster and painless because small incisions heal quickly as compared to linear incision.
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 less hair. Shock hair loss is actually the condition in which patient suffers from hair loss after 2 to 6 weeks of procedure. It is completely normal and occurs because of weakening of some hair roots and occurs in both the techniques.
Comparison of FUT and FUE on some general issues is given above and you can go for the appropriate one though both the techniques give excellent results and have their own pros and cons.
