What is The Hair Transplant?
Hair transplantation is a technique in which the hair follicles are removed from the donor area (the hair bank) and are replaced into the balding or bald area ('recipient site).

Over the years, different ways and techniques have been tested, and finally, today, with the use of new technology, smaller batches of hair (Micro grafts) are used, which results in a satisfying, natural look.

Hair transplantation was first used to treat baldness in men, and there are two main types of hair transplant: FUE (follicular unit extraction) and FUT (follicular unit transplant).
The two methods will eventually yield similar results, but depending on the patients, one of the two methods is used for hair transplantation.
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) is considered as the primary method of hair transplant.
In this method, the patient is put under general anesthesia and a strip from the donor area near the right ear to the left ear is removed by the surgeon then the harvested strip is divided into follicular units to be transferred to the bald or hair loss area.
Usually, in the FUT hair transplant method, you do not need to shave the entire hair of the individual and only the hairs in removal and transplant areas are needed to be shortened.
Although FUT is one of the most reliable and definitive hair transplant methods in the world; Nowadays, new methods have been replaced with the FUT technique due to some disadvantages of this hair transplantation technique, such as surgery, pain, bleeding, anesthesia, side effects ,etc.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
In FUE hair transplant, after punch incisions around hair follicles they are removed usually from behind the head as a donor area and transplanted into the bald area.
This type of hair transplant is suitable for people who do not want to have scars on their hair, have short hair and want a quick recovery period. It is also more suitable for people with thin scalp skin.
Difference between FUE and FUT methods
- FUE has significantly less recovery time than FUT. Due to the solitary removal of the follicles, a very small scar is left unseen by the eye.
- FUE treatment is almost painless with less postoperative discomfort and requires an average of seven days to recover.
- When using the FUT method, a strip will be removed from behind the head, therefore, it takes longer to recover and lasts more than 10 days. Due to the strip removal, a scar remains in this procedure.
- The FUT method is used when more grafts are needed (For example 2500 to 3000).
- In the FUE method it is easier to select the desired area for hair removal. For example, in the eyebrow transplant thinner hair can be used.
- FUE hair transplant is also more costly than FUT and some people choose FUT because of its price.
