What’s The Difference Between FUE and FUT?
Comparing FUE vs. FUT Hair Transplants
FUE Technique, the hair follicles, called follicular unit in medical terminology, are removed one by one with very fine microsurgical instruments measuring 0.75 – 1.00 mm in diameter without using a scalpel, and the hairless area is removed by a professional team without cutting again. It is the process of transplanting the only extracted hair.
In the FUT hair transplant technique, an elliptical piece is cut from the area between the two ears by means of a scalpel. After this piece, which is approximately 12-15 centimeters long and 2-4 centimeters thick, is taken from the relevant area, the upper and lower parts of the scalp are sutured securely from the inside and outside. The piece of hairy tissue taken from the relevant area is separated into roots.
FUT, Follicular Unit Transplantation Hair transplantation technique FUE Hair transplantation technique shows differences in terms of obvious disadvantages and FUE technique has not been used in general since its emergence. The reason for this is that long-term neck pain occurs in people who have undergone hair transplantation through FUT. The occurrence of numbness on the neck, the appearance of stitch marks due to an average of 10 – 30 stitches, the inability to cut the hair short due to this scar, the hollow appearance of the hair roots in the planted area, and the inability to comb in any direction with the unangled, disproportionate growth of the transplanted hair. can be summarized.
Hair transplantation operations performed with the FUT technique have lost their former popularity completely, with the introduction of the FUE technique to the world in 2004, and the observation of its enormous success in practice. All of the hair transplant clinics and hospitals that know the technology well and follow it very closely now use the FUE Hair Transplantation technique.
