Hair transplant surgeries are considered a solid solution for hair loss problems. For this, people suffering from hair loss wonder about the hair transplant surgery methods and want to figure out which method is the best for them. Hair transplant surgeries are performed in mainly three methods; FUT, FUE, and DHI. In this article, you’ll find everything you should know about the FUT method.
What Is Follicular Unit Transplantation?
Hair transplantation is now done in a variety of ways. The Follicular Unit Transplantation procedure is the earliest of these. With this procedure, you can get natural-looking results. The FUT is one of the popular methods used in hair transplant. Follicular Unit Transplantation is usually done by surgeons who apply an incision at the back of your scalp and extract the hair follicles from the back of your scalp. It separates these hair follicles one by one into hair cells and places the follicles extracted into the bald area.
In fact, the majority of hair transplant procedures are performed using comparable techniques, with just minor changes. For example, in the FUE procedure, surgeons remove each hair follicle individually, but in the DHI method, surgeons place the removed hair follicles using pen-like equipment.
