While both of these techniques are effective, the major question that arises is which one to choose. So let us discuss each one of them in detail.

FUT Hair Transplant

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) is a conventional yet, one of the most common methods of hair restoration. This method of hair transplant involves the removal of a strip of tissue from the donor area, usually the back of the head, which is then washed and separated into grafts (grafts are the pieces of tissue that contain the hair follicles are to be planted in this procedure). Next, holes are created into the recipient site (bald part of the head) and the dissected grafts are planted in these holes.

FUE Hair Transplant

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a modern technique of hair restoration in which the donor area (back of the head) is shaved and the hair strands are cut out individually by making incisions around them. After this, the extracted grafts are inserted into the holes created in the recipient site (bald area), just like it is done in the FUT hair transplant method.  This procedure involves the extraction of each graft individually and directly from the scalp, which is why this procedure of hair transplant can be a little time-consuming.

Now, the biggest question is: Which method of hair transplant to choose?

The FUE and FUT, both these methods of hair transplant are highly popular and we perform both of them at our clinic. Both these procedures have certain benefits and drawbacks, however which one to choose totally depends on the type of your hair and scalp condition.

One of the major points of concern among the patients, while choosing between these procedures is the issue of scarring. And when it comes to scarring, the FUT method of hair transplant can be a little disappointing. Sadly, FUT can leave a stip-like scar around the back of your head, but our hair specialists make sure to keep this scar as minimal as possible.

Aside from this drawback, FUT has a lot to offer, which is why it is one of the most popular hair transplant methods.

On the other hand, FUE does not leaves any scar, which is why a great choice is for people with short hair. Plus, it doesn’t even have many side effects—just tiny pin stabs, which are almost invisible.
