FUT can help many men overcome the hair loss problem but let’s first talk about it
Follicular Unit Hair Transplant (FUT)
It is a procedure performed by trained and experienced surgeons where hair is transferred from the density zones mainly from the back and sides of the scalp to the affected zone. It involves cutting a strip of follicles from the donor site and then separated into individual follicles under microscopic dissection procedure.
These follicles are then implanted into the holes in the affected area. The wound is sutured and a bandage is normally put on it to protect the wound.
Advantages of FUT procedure
FUT is nowadays at the back of people’s minds but it has the following benefits
- A lot of hair follicles are provided.
By the cutting of a strip, more follicles are harvested that makes the implantation procedure fast and easy. There is also a high chance that the transplanted hair will grow and attain one’s goal.
- Time management
FUT is done in the shortest time possible since more follicles are harvested at once and the whole procedure is done under anesthesia administration
- Relatively cheaper procedure
FUT is the inexpensive hair restoration procedure compared to others. One who has more density hair and wants a hair surgery can go in for FUT.
Just like any other surgical procedure, there are risks involved with hair restoration for example bleeding, infection, loss of shock, pain, and scarring but these can be avoided by following the surgeon’s advice and most importantly having an FUT hair transplant with an experienced and trained surgeon.
