Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
- Removing a strip of tissue from the donor area, typically from the back of the scalp, which contains a large number of hair follicles.
- The strip is then dissected into individual follicular units, which are small groups of 1-4 hair follicles.
- These follicular units are then carefully transplanted to the balding or thinning areas of the scalp.
FUT is highly efficient as it allows the surgeon to transplant a large number of hair follicles in a single session. It also allows for the preservation of the original hair distribution state.
However, this technique does leave a linear scar at the donor site, which can be noticeable if the hair is cut too short
