What is follicular hair transplantation FUT?

Follicular hair transplant procedure in India  is a simple procedure that allows the surgeon to use  a small recipient site. Follicular units are removed from the donor site. Hair transplant surgeons then  minutely separate the units using  stereomicroscopic dissection to produce  the absolute number of follicular units ready for transplantation.

The follicular hair transplantation procedure uses the DHT (Androgen hormone)resistant hair roots  and implants them into the DHT sensitive zone where the hair loss or baldness occurs. The goal of the hair transplant expert in India  is to cover the balding area in such an aesthetically natural way that the patient gets a head full of hair as they had before.

What is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) Hair transplantation technique?

Follicular unit transplant technique for hair transplant in India involves strip harvesting hair follicles from the back and sides of healthy part of the scalp. The strip harvesting is a single incision procedure and the hair surgeon is able to obtain thousands of follicular units in the single graft and use them to cover the large part of the scalp.

  • Donor strip extraction: This is the single step harvesting process done from the permanent hair zone at the back of the scalp.
  • Follicular units: A follicular unit is a basic hair bearing structure of the skin. Each follicular unit is a bundle of hair growing together. Each unit has one to four hairs and is surrounded by fine vellus hair, muscle, and collagen. Extraction of follicular unit gives FUT an edge over the traditional methods such as micro-grafting and plugs. By using the follicular units the top hair specialist are able to transplant as much as four hair strands in a tiny recipient site on the scalp.

  • The harvest grafts are then inserted in the small slits made in the bald area.
  • The surgical sites are covered with bandages and gauzes.
