Benefits of Follicular Unit Transplantation Hair Transplant

Are you sick of worrying about a receding hairline, bald patches, or thinning hair? While hair loss is very common, you can combat it with modern hair restoration procedures. New techniques such as follicular unit transplantation can promote hair regrowth so that you can regain your confidence!

Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) is a hair restoration procedure that utilizes a strip of your own hair, usually from a hair-loss-resistant region such as the back or sides of the scalp. From this strip, follicular units of 1-4 hairs will be removed and transplanted into the affected areas of the scalp.

Follicular unit transplantation has many remarkable benefits:

  • Natural-looking Results: If I showed you images of patients who have undergone FUT, I guarantee you would never know! This is because FUT uses hairs off the patient's own scalp and blends the relocated hair follicles seamlessly with any existing hair for the most natural-looking results!
  • Quick Recovery: FUT has a relatively short recovery time, with patients feeling back to normal within less than 2 weeks.
  • Better Coverage: Compared to other hair restoration procedures, FUT uses a large number of hair grafts enabling better coverage. This makes this procedure ideal for patients with advanced hair loss.
  • Improved Follicular Survival: FUT uses hair grafts which are carefully harvested from areas of the scalp that are more resistant to balding. Because of this, these follicles are of higher quality and more robust with an enhanced survival rate.
  • Less Scarring: Although FUT uses a strip of hair on the side or back of the scalp, this results in only one scar. Other hair restoration procedures can cause many small scars from each follicle unit that is extracted.
  • More Efficient: Not only does FUT have quicker sessions, but it also requires fewer sessions compared to other restoration methods, saving you time and money.
  • Boosted Confidence: Arguably one of the most sought-after benefits of FUT is the boosted self-confidence and pride in your new, full head of hair.
