The FUT hair transplant method, commonly referred to as follicular unit transplantation or the ‘strip method’, is widely used around the world and generally offers excellent patient outcomes with high hair retention and regrowth rates. It is the world’s most common hair transplant procedure, favored for its comparatively low cost and excellent success rate.
The process itself involves the removal of a strip of skin from the donor area, usually at the back of the head. This strip is then divided into individual follicular units under a microscope, before being prepared for re-insertion into the recipient area. Tiny slits are made in the scalp where the hair is to be placed, and each unit is inserted individually. FUT hair transplantation takes a few hours to complete, although it is generally quicker than an FUE hair transplant.
Recovery times are slightly longer following a FUT procedure in comparison to FUE, however any discomfort is slight and easily managed. Your Patient Advisor will provide all the information you require to ensure that your aftercare regime is in place and fully understood. Most patients recover very quickly and and are able to return to work after just a few days.
One significant benefit offered by FUT hair transplants is the cost. At Hair Restoration Centers we offer lower quotations than almost any other clinic in the United States, with rates starting at just $3.00 per graft plus up to $600 travel allowance for those who do not live close to one of our locations.
