WHAT IS FUT?

Follicular Unit Transplantation

FUT (follicular unit transplantation) is a procedure that involves harvesting hair grafts from a strip of tissue from the back of the scalp and transplanting them to the desired areas. This is an amazing option for you if you are seeking a significant increase in your hair density. The process includes:

The FUT treatment plan is mapped out and the markings are made to guide your personal FUT goals. Typically, the harvest area is shaved to a two in that area only. The area is then numbed with local anesthesia.

Dr. Kahen uses a scalpel to remove a thin strip of tissue from the back of the scalp. The area is carefully sutured to ensure the thinnest possible linear scar.

The removed strip of tissue is examined under a microscope, so the grafts can be extracted and counted until the optimal amount has been removed. Our highly experienced technicians prepare the donor hair for placement by trimming or dissecting the donor strips into their follicle groupings, also known as units. Each unit comprises of one, two, three or four hair follicles.

After the follicles are inspected, counted, and passed through rigorous quality control, the recipient area is prepped with platelet-rich plasma. The patient’s blood will be ran through our Tru Dose® machine, so we can effectively determine the amount of PRP needed to ensure maximum results. This process creates the perfect environment for the implanted and native hair follicles. This revolutionary technique sets us apart from any other hair transplant clinic and delivers results unattainable elsewhere.

Dr. Kahen uses his keen attention to detail and his artistic mind to control the orientation, depth, and distribution of the grafts. This crucial process determines how the hair will grow in to deliver the most natural results. After the recipient cites are created, Dr. Kahen’s expert team will carefully place the grafts into the sites.

ADVANTAGES OF FUT

FUT is one of the best options if you are trying to secure as many hair follicles as possible to maximize your hair’s density. Patients seeking a discreet procedure can benefit from this FUT procedure because only a small portion of the hair needs to be shaved and can easily be covered by the existing hair.

BEFORE & AFTER

10 months before and after pics of a patient with nice FUT results. I did 2345 manual FUE grafts using a miniscule punch size on African American hair.

A younger patient with significant thinning in the crown, wanted more density and the option of wearing his hair short in the future. I did 2480 grafts via manual FUE method. After pics are 1 year later.
