METHODS/TECHNIQUES of HARVESTING GRAFTS FROM DONOR SITE

Secrets revealed by hair transplant surgeon @ Atodaria Hair Transplant & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Surat

There are two techniques of hair follicle harvesting:

- STRIP METHOD or FUT- Gold standard- Time tested method- >35 yrs

- F.U.E. [Follicular Unit Extraction]-New method- >10 yrs

What is FUT (Follicular unit transplantation)?

Follicular Unit Hair Transplant FUT involves the removal of a strip of superficial layers of hair bearing scalp from the back and sides of the head (donor area). The strip is dissected into micro strips [ the process known as “Slivering”]. These micro strips are dissected to fine follicular units with the help of digital microscopes. These hair follicles [having 1,2,3 or more hairs in each follicle] are transplanted on to the bald area (recipient area).

The main advantage of this method is with this method one can cover wider areas as it gives scope for obtaining more number of grafts in a single session. If the donor area permits, one can transplant even up to 6000 follicular units in a single session. In following case, we have done 5400 hair follicle transplant with FUT.

Although this method leaves a linear scar in the donor area, by virtue of the latest advancements in the technology, this can be minimized by a technique called tricophytic closure. Even new hair growth is seen through it in majority of the patients

Scarring of Donor site is in-evitable regards less the technique used. FUT leaves behind a linear scar. FUE leaves behind thousands of tiny scars. Usually scars of the procedure are well hidden & inconspicuous.

Badly done hair transplant always leaves behind bad scars, whether it is FUT or FUE technique
