A Follicular Unit Transplantation, or FUT, is also commonly known as the Strip Harvesting method of hair transplant. People who experience hair fall, thinning hair and bald spots are the best candidates for this method. In FUT, the surgeon removes a few inches of scalp skin or skin graft from the donor area. This graft is then cut into small pieces.
Ovoidal hair follicles are extracted from these grafts and then carefully placed in the tiny incisions made on the recipient area, where the hair is supposed to grow. The final result from a FUT procedure starts to show after 6 to 9 months of the surgery.
A Follicular Unit Extraction method is a clean and all-natural method of a hair transplant. It is done by taking individual hair follicles from the donor skin and implanting them in the recipient areas, or areas where there is thinning hair or bald spots.
This method of transplant usually takes multiple two to four-hour sessions, which are done over a few days. The overall result in this method is quite natural, with little to no scars, since the procedure is minimally invasive.
One of the most recent developments in the field of hair transplant is the introduction of the Boosted FUE or Boosted Follicular Unit Extraction method. In addition to being quite advanced and technically sophistically, this method also uses the latest technology and tools. In the Boosted FUE method, hair follicles are extracted with imported punches ranging between 0.75 mm to 0.9 mm from the back of the scalp. By doing so, a procedure of implanting over 3000 grafts can be done in a single day. This method also reduces the overall time of keeping the graft outside the body to less than an hour.
The Boosted FUE method incorporates three different forms of hair transplant:
