- 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 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)
