Follicular Unit Transplant

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a hair restoration procedure where hair is transplanted exclusively in its naturally occurring groups of 1-4 hairs. These groups, or follicular units, are obtained through the microscopic dissection of tissue taken from a single donor strip or extracted directly from the donor area (Follicular Unit Extraction). Because Follicular Unit Hair Transplants mimic the way hair grows in nature, the results, in expert hands, will look completely natural and be indistinguishable from one’s original hair (Patient Photos).

Another advantage of Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation is the ability to place these tiny grafts into very small recipient sites. The small sites cause minimal damage to the skin and allow the surgeon to safely transplant thousands of grafts in a single session and to complete the hair restoration as quickly as possible. The tiny needle-sized recipient sites heal in just a few days without leaving any marks.

Follicular Unit Transplantation was a major advance over the mini-micrografting hair transplant procedure that preceded it. In mini-micrografting, the graft sizes were arbitrarily determined by the doctor who cut the donor tissue into different size pieces (this technique was also called grafts "cut to size."). Minigrafts, which might contain up to 12 hairs, were bulky and could produce a tufted appearance. They also could result in a dimpling of the underlying skin. Micrografts, on the other hand, were frequently damaged during the removal process or were too fragile to survive.

In Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation, special stereo-microscopes enable meticulous graft dissection, so that the integrity of follicular units can be preserved. This process also enables the careful removal of the non-hair bearing scalp around the units. This process insures that all of the growth elements of the hair follicle remain intact and that the grafts are kept as small as possible.
