What is the difference between Follicular Unit Extraction and Follicular Unit Transplantation?

The main difference between FUT and FUE hair transplants is that in FUT, the surgeon removes a strip of donor skin from the patient in order to extract individual follicular units, which are then transplanted to the areas where hair lost has occurred. Individual follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp during FUE.

Both procedures are excellent choices for men and women who are experiencing hair loss. When deciding between FUE and FUT, talk to your surgeon about which method is best for you.

During the consultation, you and your doctor should talk about your expectations and goals, as well as the number of follicular units needed to achieve your desired coverage and the final design of your hairline. This will assist you and your surgeon in determining which hair transplantation method is best for you.
