Hair Transplantation : Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) & Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Hair transplantation is used to treat various forms and degrees of permanent alopecia in both men and women. Intact hair follicles may be harvested from within the safe donor area (SDA) of a patient's scalp by either follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS/FUT) or follicular unit extraction (FUE); each harvesting method has unique advantages and disadvantages. The refinement of follicular unit transplanting over the last decade has led to markedly improved hair survival and natural-appearing results.


Hair restoration surgery can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but the results won't necessarily match your ideal. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.It's important to understand that all hair restoration surgery techniques use your existing hair. The goal of surgery is to find the most efficient uses for existing hair.


Ideal Hair replacement surgery candidates:


  Hair replacement candidates must have healthy hair growth at the back and sides of the head to serve as

donor areas.

  Donor areas are the places on the head from which grafts and flaps are taken.

  Other factors, such as hair color, texture and waviness or curliness may also affect the cosmetic result.

  There are a number of techniques used in hair replacement surgery. Sometimes, two or more techniques

are used to achieve the best results.
