Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) for Hair Loss


Hair loss can be a very distressing condition for many people. It can affect their self-esteem, confidence, and overall quality of life. There are many different treatments available for hair loss, but one of the most effective is follicular unit transplantation (FUT).

FUT is a surgical procedure that involves transplanting hair follicles from a donor area to an area of hair loss. The donor area is typically the back or sides of the scalp, where the hair is genetically programmed to last a lifetime. The transplanted hair follicles will continue to grow in the recipient area, providing a permanent solution to hair loss.

How Does FUT Work?

FUT is performed under local anesthesia, so you will be awake during the procedure. The surgeon will make a small incision in the donor area and remove a thin strip of skin. The hair follicles are then carefully separated from the skin and transplanted to the recipient area. The incisions in the donor and recipient areas are then closed with stitches.

The number of grafts that can be transplanted in a single procedure depends on the severity of the hair loss and the amount of donor hair available. However, most patients can expect to see a significant improvement in their hair growth after FUT.

Recovery from FUT

The recovery period for FUT is typically short. You may experience some pain and swelling in the donor and recipient areas, but this should subside within a few days. You will also need to wear a bandage on the donor area for a few days.

Most patients can return to work and their normal activities within a week of the procedure. However, you should avoid strenuous activity for at least two weeks.

Advantages of FUT

FUT is a very effective treatment for hair loss. It can provide a permanent solution to hair loss and produce natural-looking results. FUT is also a relatively safe procedure with a low risk of complications.

Disadvantages of FUT

The main disadvantage of FUT is that it leaves a linear scar in the donor area. However, the scar is usually not visible when the hair is cut short.


FUT is one of two main types of hair transplantation surgery. The other type is follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUE is a newer technique that involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area. FUE does not leave a linear scar, but it can be more time-consuming and expensive than FUT.

Which Type of Hair Transplantation is Right for You?

The best type of hair transplantation for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. If you are concerned about the scar, then FUE may be a better option for you. However, if you are looking for a more cost-effective procedure, then FUT may be a better choice.


FUT is a safe and effective treatment for hair loss. It can provide a permanent solution to hair loss and produce natural-looking results. If you are considering hair transplantation, then FUT is a good option to consider.
