Of the several hair loss solutions, the most effective is surgical hair restoration. There are many hair replacement methods that you can choose from, including permanent hair replacement and hair transplants. The technique for hair restoration depends on the degree of hair loss as well as the individual circumstances of a person. Surgical hair restoration process provides a lasting and predictable solution to hair loss. Here you will get to know about FUE and FUT – two of the most sought after hair restoration treatment options.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Advances in the placement and size of hair grafts are the factors that make modern hair transplants look so natural. This becomes specifically imperative for frontal hair transplants to avoid the unnatural appearance of a sudden change from bare skin to dense hair. The hair transplant done through The follicular Unit method is one of the most preferred options. Hair growth usually takes place in groups, from one to four hair strands, known as follicular units. The micrografts used by the trained and experienced surgeons resemble this natural pattern called follicular unit hair grafts. Once the hair transplant procedure has been done and the scalp has recovered, follicular unit hair grafts would grow in a natural way.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

This procedure can be done only by highly trained and expert surgeons. In this approach, the surgeon dissects the tissue of a harvested donor strip under the microscope and separate follicular unit hair grafts for hair transplantation. This procedure is known as Follicular Unit Extraction. Each follicular unit hair graft consequential to this step comprises a thin silver of scalp tissue that consists of the hair follicle and minuscule blood vessels with a near millimeter of hair protruding from the actual surface of the skin.

Transplanting the Donor Hair

Once hair is removed from the back of the scalp, the donor strip is surgically dissected into follicular units – small tissue grafts in the group of one to four hairs from a single hair follicle. Small incisions are made in the donor area, and the follicular units are inserted. Over the course or treatment of the surgical hair restoration process, the new hair follicles are evenly distributed so that affected areas of the scalp are gradually covered.

In order to make sure that natural look is achieved from surgical hair transplantation, good hair transplant density is of great importance. During the initial days of medical hair restoration, large clumps of follicle were inserted in the scalp. The outcomes of these early attempts at surgical hair replacement were alternating areas of think and dense hair. As technology and methods improved, smaller groups of follicles are transplanted through much smaller incisions. The result is uniform and even hair transplant density, contributing to a natural-looking hair pattern.

Results of Hair Transplant Procedures

Your chosen cosmetic surgeon might recommend one of many medicines for recovery and healing. There are medicines that help in wound therapy including conditioner, dressing, and shampoo. Oral anti-baldness medications like finasteride and topical preparations like minoxidil are often advised for supplementing hair transplant surgery. The surgeon would carefully evaluate your case and recommend a post-surgery routine accordingly for achieving the best possible results.


Once all of the micrografts have been inserted in the scalp, the hair transplant patient would have stubble in the transplant regions along with minor scabbing. The affected scalp should heal quickly so should be the sutured incision from the donor site. The transplanted hair would fall after a few weeks of the procedure, as the hair goes into the resting phase in the early stage. It would take several months before hair starts growing phase once again. They would grow at a normal rate. Follicles transplanted at the time of surgical hair restoration are not sensitive to the similar biological influence as the original follicles in the balding part of the scalp and thus would just produce hair just the way the did in the donor site.
