FUT Hair Transplant in India

FUT or follicular unit transplant also known as “Strip surgery” is one of the most common and effectively used procedures, in the field of Hair transplant for years. It is a hair restoration technique where the naturally occurring group of 1-4 hairs called as follicular units are used as grafts. The difference between FUE and FUT is the method of obtaining these follicular units. FUT primarily involves, removing the hair bearing skin by using a scalpel, from the back of a person’s head. This gap is later meticulously sutured together leaving a faint linear scar, only visible if the head is completely shaven. The obtained strip of hair then further is divided into grafts, which consist of one or two follicles. These grafts are further implanted in the required/desired area, in a manner that resembles implantation with the FUE technique. Indications of FUT Hair Transplant includes;

  • Patient who presents with advanced stage of baldness with poor donor density
  • Patient with loose scalp
  • Old men
  • Patient with reverse hair loss

What is FUT Hair Transplant

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), also known as strip surgery, is an ideal choice for patients with higher grade of baldness. In this procedure, the hair bearing skin is removed by using a scalpel and the resultant gap is sutured together. This strip is divided in grafts and then implanted on the recipient area. Following are the advantages of FUT;

  • Large number of grafts in one session
  • High yield of hair and less time consuming
  • Affordable and natural results.

How does it work?

In follicular unit transplantation, the surgeon excises an entire strip of hair from the donor area on the scalp. This step is called as strip harvesting. After this the excised strip is dissected to obtain smaller strips under stereo microscope.These strips are further cut by technicians to obtain follicular units. The area from where the strip is obtained is then approximated and sutured meticulously, leaving behind a faint linear scar. This ensures that the density of the donor area almost remains unchanged, while a large number of grafts can be obtained. Each Follicular unit obtained is counted as a graft, and 1-4 hair may be obtained from each unit.

FUT Post-Procedure Care

The general post-operative instructions are same as any hair transplant surgery. here are few postop instructions specific to FUT hair transplant;

Immediately after the FUT surgery, patient may have some discomfort in the donor area over the sutures. There may be some crusting over the suture line. In case of any oozing, a sterile gauze can be used to pat dry the area.

However, as compared to other methods the recovery is a little slow and the patient would need to get sutures/staples removed between 7-10 days post operatively.

There might be a dissolvable suture underneath the skin that will self-dissolve between 3-4 months post operatively. This can feel lumpy but will return to normal in no time.

Results can be expected in the same way as any other surgery. The donor area leaves with a linear scar which is visible on shaving the head.
