Which Hair Transplant Technique To Choose?

There are two recognised surgical hair restoration techniques available today, the FUE and FUT techniques. Follicular Unit Extraction is the newer of the two and differs from FUT mainly in the method the grafts are extracted; the placement of the grafts is the same for both.

Is the hair transplant technique decided out of choice or necessity?

Every case is individual, some may have the luxury of deciding, whereas others, due to their hair qualities may have the decision dictated to them. What´s important is long-term planning to ensure future hair loss can be successfully treated.

FUT can be performed in a single day procedure as the method of extraction is more efficient. FUE, each hair follicle is initially punched and then extracted one by one making it slower and limits the number that can be safely moved in one day, so larger FUE´s will be performed over two consecutive days.

Both techniques offer different benefits and can complement each other, and even be combined in one, two-day procedure. For individuals suffering from advanced male pattern baldness combining the techniques means maximising the graft numbers, allowing some to achieve a result with total coverage in a single procedure.

A hair loss consultation will help to evaluate characteristics such as donor hair density, donor surface area and skin elasticity. These and more aspects will allow for the correct assessment of your hair loss now, and potential in the future that can determine the correct technique for you.
