air loss is one of the most common problems that we face in our regular life. There are many reasons behind hair loss and naturally, there are many solutions to stop that hair loss as well. Out of all the solutions, hair transplant is the most effective solution for hair loss that allows you to cover your bald area in the most natural way. When it comes to the techniques, there are two primary methods by which hair transplant is performed. Both the technique has their own significances that depend on the grade of baldness a patient is having.
- FUT- Follicular unit transplantation
- FUE- Follicular unit extraction
FUT hair transplantation or Follicular Unit Transplantation is a technique in which the hair is transplanted from the safe donor area and put in the areas where the balding has occurred. The surgeon provides Anastasia and harvests a tissue strip from the back of the hair (donor area). After the strip extraction, they are cut into single follicular units. The surgeons then make small holes in the receipt area, where these grafts are carefully implanted. FUT hair transplantation is generally recommended for people who require more number of grafts to cover the balding area.
FUE hair transplantation or Follicular Unit Extraction is a relatively modern technique of hair transplant. In FUE hair transplantation, the surgeons using an extraction tool extract the hair follicles from the safe donor area. Then these hair follicles are transplanted into the recipient area. This technique uses a specialized micro-surgical needle that the surgeons use to make the slits at the recipient site.
While both FUT and FUE hair transplant is performed keeping in mind the grade of the patients, in some cases, the combination of these two techniques provide the most fruitful results. The combination technique of the FUT and FUE results in the increase of the follicle unit extraction. Therefore, offering maximum yield at the same time protecting the Donor area in order to be used in the future. The best hair transplant doctor in India knows how to give their patients the most aesthetic results by combining FUT hair transplantation as well as FUE hair transplantation.
When the Combination of FUT and FUE Yield the Best Results:
To perform FUT and FUE combination, there are certain aspects that are needed to be considered. Following are some cases where the surgeons can perform the combination technique to get the best results:
- The restricted donor for transplantation requirement:
The combination technique proves to be effective when the patients have restricted donor area and their receipt areas need more number of grafts. In this case, to get the most aesthetic results without reducing the donor area, FUT +FUE combination technique is performed.
- For a Mega or Giga Session:
Patients, who have a good and healthy donor area; who look for a one mega or giga session including 5000 follicle units in one sitting are considered good candidates for the combination technique. This way, a large number of grafts are harvested from the safe area. The rest of the required grafts are harvested through FUE procedure.
- In order to minimize the scar:
For patients who are extremely worried about FUT scar but they are having a high grade of baldness, the combination technique is an effective way to get the maximum results with minimal scar. In this case, the surgeons can constrict the length as well as the width of the strips to harvest only a certain number of grafts out of the required grafts. The remaining required grafts are harvested from FUE technique. This, in turn, leaves the safe donor area with minimal scarring.
