FUE vs FUT

FUE vs FUT

FUT

  • FUT is Follicular Unit Transplantation.
  • The surgeon removes a strip of donor skin from which to extract individual follicular units to be transferred to the areas of hair loss.
  • The survival rate of FUT is very high.
  • FUT is a bit more costlier than FUE.
  • The number of available grafts in FUT is comparatively lower than FUE.
  • FUT has a single line scar which isn’t visible on long term due to trichophytic special closure methods.
    FUT gives highest yield of hair.
  • A donor strip is harvested from the back of head.
  • There can be very minimal post surgical pain (which is handled well by pain killer tablets) and recovery time is maximum 5 to 7 days.
  • Done mostly in cases of severe grades of baldness, with a limited donor area in young age group (ie who have black hairs and yet haven’t started greying)

FUE

  • FUE is Follicular Unit Extraction.
  • In FUE individual follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp.
  • The survival rate of FUE too is quite high in trained hands like ours.
  • FUE is a little more cost effective than FUT.
  • The number of grafts available in FUE is comparatively more than FUT.
    FUE scars are absolutely unrecognisable after a few months.
  • FUE gives comparatively low yield of hair.
  • Small grafts of 1-3 hairs are removed with a FUE punch .
  • There’s almost no post surgical pain after this method and the recovery time is less than 5 days.
  • Done mostly in cases with a good donor area and less grades of balding (can do if donor hairs are grey and is the preferred method in such individuals)

Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Wonderful blog and superb style and design.

I am curious to find out what blog platform you are utilizing? I’m having some small security problems with my latest site and I’d like to find something more safe. Do you have any solutions?
