What is FUT Hair Transplant ?

Follicular Unit Transplantation even though is traditional Hair Transplantation but it is a trusted hair procedure because it is successful in obtaining ultimate hair results. FUT is a conventional surgical hair restoration method in which 6 to 10 inch strip of skin is removed from the back and side of the head scalp. This strip is set aside and the area is sewed to be covered by hairs. The hair grafts are then prepared from that strip of skin, which may range from 500 to 2000 tiny grafts. After the grafts have been prepared, the recipient area is then cleaned and made numb after which small slits or holes are created with the help of needle and then this prepared grafts are then carefully placed in these holes. The number and type of graft that has been extracted and implemented in this procedure depends highly on the hair type, quality, color and the size of the area of the patient. After about 2 weeks the stitches heals and results are visible

Advantages of FUT Hair Transplant..
  • 1) It ensures harvesting of large numbers of hair grafts at a time because in a single session more than 2000 grafts can be extracted.

  • 2) It is a faster process as compared to other Hair Transplantation procedure.

  • 3) FUT maximizes graft yields ensuring better hair transplant results. It can cover large area of baldness more perfectly.

  • 4) It is traditional and trusted hair transplant solution. It is good option for getting thicker and natural hair growth.

Any method of hair harvesting (taking hair from donor area) will leave a scar. The degree of visibility is the question.
If the method of hair transplantation is FUT, yes the scars will be visible on short hair as a linear line while the scars will not be that visible in FUE method of transplantation even on a short hair as hair is diffusedly extracted over a larger area

rootz

The average human head measures 120 square inches (770 cm2) and has about 1 – 1.5 lakh hair follicles or grafts. A normal person without hair loss does have density of about 160 – 200 grafts per square cm.
On the higher side, one can opt for transplantation of about 10,000 – 15,000 grafts also. As a thumb rule, in a person with hair loss, a virgin scalp can allow harvesting of 3, 500 – 4,000 grafts, 500 grafts from beard, 500 – 5,000 grafts from the chest or other parts of the body.
Based on the degree of your hair loss (hair loss grade), the hair thickness, the goal of the hair density and the available donor area, our surgeon will guide you on the volume of the grafts that can be transplanted

Things to consider before Hair Transplantation
1. Understand the underlying cause of hair loss. Consider transplantation only when there are no underlying medical reasons for hair loss.
2. See that there are no underlying infections (bacterial or fungi) before the transplantation
3. See that you are not on medications like Finasteride or taking medications for cancer therapy (cytostatic drugs), auto-immune disorders (Lupus, Psoriasis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, scleroderma, etc.
4. Inform the surgeon if you have any history of allergies or any known issues with anesthesia
5. Avoid sunburn atleast 1 week before the transplantation
6. Check with the surgeon if the scalp hair follicle is weaker/ too thin for considering transplantation
7. Hair Transplantation is a cosmetic and elective procedure. Discuss with the surgeon on your expectations of hair line, density of hair, the probability of the results and the likely time for the visible results before the transplantation
Don’ts after transplantation
1. Don’t smoke or restrict in-take of alcohol for atleast a month before and after transplantation for better results
2. Hold on head bath for about 3 – 7 days of time post transplantation
3. Hold on swimming for 2 -3 weeks post transplantation
4. Avoid direct sunlight for 2 weeks post transplantation
5. Do not take finasteride medication 3 months before the procedure and 6 months after the procedure.
6. Avoid hair dye for atleast 4 – 6 weeks post transplantation
7. Though you will be on local sedation during the surgery, it is advised not to drive under its influence immediately after the surgery
8. Avoid wearing a hat for about 3 weeks to ensure the transplanted grafts are completely anchored

rootz

If you can manage to take proper care like avoiding direct exposure to sun, pollution, sunburn, crowded areas (to avoid infections), we recommend to get back to work or travel from the next day after the procedure. There will not be any bandage on the head. However, the common guidance we have is to take atleast 2 – 3 days of time before you get back to your usual routine to avoid external factors that sometimes may not be under our control.

Depending on the volume of grafts transplanted for a complete hair growth it might take 8 – 15 months of time.
The transplanted hair falls off in 2 – 3 weeks of time and the new hair will start to grow within 10 to 15 weeks of time. Hair grows at a rate of 10% per month from 3rd or 4th month onwards and by 12 months of time, about 90% hair growth would have reached while the rest might take another 6 months of time.

rootz

Just like natural hair, about 10% of the transplanted hair falls in a life time. The rest of the transplanted hair will remain as these transplanted hairs are resistant to hair loss causing hormones.

rootz

You might be asked to take pain reduction medication, antibiotics for reducing chances of infections and anti-inflammatory medications to minimize swelling for about 3 – 5 days post transplantation
The doctor might also prescribe minoxidil to improve hair regrowth for several months post transplantation if required.
