FUT ( FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANTATION)

WHAT IS FUT?

The FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
Process involves removing a small strip of tissue from the back of the head, from which the donor hair follicles will be extracted. The hair follicles are harvested from the strip by a skilled clinical team before being individually transplanted to the recipient areas. FUT is a very sophisticated procedure. It requires expertise to remove the skin strip without transecting follicles at the wound edges and close the wound in a way that causes minimal scarring.

The graft dissection techniquerequires extensive training for years to master.
