F.U.T. hair transplant (Follicular Unit Transplant)


This is the most practiced method

It represents over 95% of hair transplants performed worldwide. It consists in removing a strip of skin from the back of the head (scalp). The strip size is typically 1.2 cm wide, and up to 15 cm (until 25cm if necessary) on the back on the head. The strip is divided into grafts of 1 to 3 strands of hair which are to be reimplanted on the bald areas.
This procedure has the advantage of implanting until 6500 strands of hair in one single session. Note that an average transplant is 3750 strands of hair per session. With the help of 7 to 8 assistants for cutting grafts, count 3 hours for 3750 strands of hair and 5 hours for 6500.
The standard strip excision method involves surgically removing a strip of scalp from the bald resistant donor area of the patient. The donor area scar is then sutured by the surgeon. If the suture is well performed then there must remain a very thin scar that gradually becomes invisible.
TThis method is the quickest and the one that gives the most significant results in one session. Besides, it is the technique the more economical.

Example of two F.U.T. sessions of 1200 grafts each.
