Follicular Unit Transplantation
FUT or strip surgery is a procedure where donor hair follicles are extracted removing a small strip tissue from the back of the head.
How it works?
The procedure is done using local anesthesia. An incision is made from both sides and extends till subcutaneous fat. The strip is then detached and cut into pieces, so as the appropriate size of graft occurs. The results may be unnatural because there are times when big grafts are implanted like in the forefront. There is permanent scarring, chronic pain, and swelling in this technique.
Hence, surgical skill matters a lot in the result of a FUT technique. The results are not long lasting in this technique as, follicles are injured during the procedure because of strip’s processing, limiting the survival of transplanted follicles.
COMBO HAIR TRANSPLANT
It is one of the recent advances in the field of hair transplant. Here depending upon the availability of the reserve and the clients requirement\customisation, the planning is done. Here we include both the FUE, FUT together and we give the best possible outcome for both the donor area and also the profile view. If required then PRP, MNT, MESO is added in the follow-ups.
Follicular Unit Extraction
In FUE technique each follicular unit is taken individually from the scalp. No strip or tissue is removed with this technique. The follicles are removed in a random fashion in a way that it is not even visible.
How it works?
FUE is performed under local anesthesia and individual follicles are removed. Microsurgical equipment is used for this procedure. A puncture is done in the scalp to receive the grafts. K2 team are expert in blending the hair, to a density which matches the original hair.
The length of the procedure depends on the number of grafts needed. Unlike, the strip surgery FUE does not leave obvious scars, only small punctures are left which is invisible to the naked eye. The average recovery time is 7 days in the surgery. The results of FUE are permanent and, it helps in the growth of strong and natural hair.
