FUE or FUT which one the best option for your hair transplant treatment?
- Are you planning to have a hair transplant surgery in Pune?
- But are you confused about which method is the best option for your treatment?
Well, both FUT and FUE are the most promising methods to undergo hair transplant treatment. But there are a few factors which will help you to find the most suitable way for you.
If you’re looking for a hair transplant, you will have two options: FUE or FUT at our clinic. Our hair transplant surgeon can recommend you follicular unit extraction (FUE), which we do at our clinic, or you can opt for strip surgery (FUT). If you opt for a strip surgery, then you have two options-
- You can have a strip search without having a (FUT) follicular unit transplant. If the strip is cut into smaller pieces, but the follicular unit is not respected in that site dissection. Then it is not good; the transplant is just a sub surgery and
- If the follicular unit is respected and the dissection is accordingly, we talk about follicular unit transplantation.
Follicular unit transplant or strip surgery (FUT) is the least invasive method of hair transplantation. It leaves less scarring, and in many cases, you can hardly see any scarring.
But it would help if you remembered that it depends on the experienced of the surgeon. It will not be any problem if you want to keep shorter hair in this case.
But if you are opting for a stripping surgery, even in the best of circumstances, you will see a strip scar. You cannot do a strip surgery without the strip scar.
In comparison to this, if you opt for a follicular unit excision (FUE) procedure, there is no chance of a scar. We use a punch tool to extract your healthy hair follicles one by one for the transplantation. So, there is no need for any strip cut on your donor area. Hence, there will be no scar at all.
Because of this, we suggest the treatment in all of our clinics along with our hair transplant clinic in Kochi and Pune.
Now there is another difference between these two treatment techniques. Apart from the linear scale that you see with the strip surgery, there is one more difference. It is important to remember that strip surgery is a process where you take hair
from the back of the head only. Whereas you might go into the sides of the head with FUE. Practically speaking, we can use the whole body as a donor site.
We can easily use any hairy part of your body at our clinic. But generally, we prefer to use the scalp hair the most. If the hair follicles are not enough to perform a hair transplant surgery, we go for other body parts. We can use hair follicles from your beard, chest as the second option.
If it requires, then we can use the hair from your back and genital areas too. It is nothing new, and we have already used hair follicles from these body parts. It gives us a much greater donor area for the treatment.
In the case of FUE, it still does not leave the scars we see with strip surgery.
So, it is quite clear that We are more in favour of FUE than strip surgery.
Indeed. We believe that if you can have a treatment to restore your hair surgically without having a scar, you should opt for that.
Again, there is a difference regarding the recovery as well. As in FUT, there is a strip cut you will need time for recovery. You can resume your regular activities from the next day of surgery. But you need to take proper care of your donor area.
Whereas in FUE, as there is no strip cut in your donor area, the recovery is easy.
In case of side effects, the chance of getting infected, developing inflammation, swelling, and itching is also significantly less in FUE procedure. On the other hand, the chances of developing these side effects are higher in FUT.
Till today we have performed many hair transplantation surgeries. All of them are highly successful too. We may recommend you FUT treatment if the donor area is your scalp because we can perform the surgery so that the scar will be significantly less. Along with this, no one can see the minimal spot inside your dense hair.
If the source is any other part of your body, then we suggest the FUE method to avoid that minimal scar.
