The hair transplant procedure is a scientific process of shifting the hair roots/follicles from the donor site onto the receiver portion of the scalp in order to sort out the problem of hair loss/baldness with natural giving results that target patient’s own scalp for the transferring of the hair roots process. The restoration of hair is one of the single and permanent options to get over the problem of baldness recommended by the hair transplant Surgeons. Scientifically, there are two methods of the hair transplant procedure, namely, the FUT hair transplant & the FUE hair transplant that needs precision of work, extreme knowledge of the artistic skills as well as the utmost aesthetic concerns towards each and every action of the procedure, whether it is a slit making process, harvesting the donor area, the extraction of hair roots or the dissection of grafts to fulfill the desired goal of an aesthetic hair transplant surgery result.
The FUT hair transplant is a process of harvesting/extracting the hair roots from the safe donor area, usually from the back & sides of the scalp termed as the safest donor area in order to collect the most permanent hair roots, which is resistant to the effect of the DHT (Di Hydro Testosterone) and never show the characteristics of the Miniaturization or hair fall. On the contrary, the FUE hair transplant facilitates the option of the individual hair root extraction by the dynamic punches that target the unsafe area as well. The outcomes of FUE hair transplant are less sustainable with a lesser number of hair grafts that don’t support the higher NW class of baldness needs. However, the FUT is the best method to extract the hair roots and the hair transplant cost for the FUT is less also in comparison the coast of the FUE technique.
The step of donor hair extraction by the FUT technique involves the strip excision that targets only the safe donor area, i.e., the back & sides of the scalp compatible to give a multiple number of grafts in a single time and fulfill the requirement of the higher grade of NW class of baldness. The strip excision is done by targeting a genuine depth of the incision that avoid the unwanted graft damage and supports the aesthetic concerns of the restoration procedure. Later, the incision area is closed by the advanced Trichophytic closure to avoid the chances of scarring.
2. It gives a greater number of Grafts
The FUT gives always a better result with the concern of fulfilling the higher bald grade by the desired number of hair grafts. The strip excision facilitated the option of getting a greater number of grafts because it is a strip of the skin that contains a number of grafts with a particular length and width supports the aesthetic need of the procedure, whereas the FUT cannot give this option because a surgeon targets the punching process to extract the single hair roots in a single time result in a lesser number of grafts and doesn’t support the aesthetic concern of the procedure.
The hair roots harvesting through the FUT hair transplant technique give you a permanent hair roots and your transplantation results lasts forever. The skin bearing hair, which is removed in the FUT technique usually taken from the sides and back area of the scalp because the hair in this area are not under the effect of the DHT and tend to last for a long time. It is the most selective option in the hair transplant world recommended by the expert hair transplant Surgeon.
In the context of cost, the cost of hair transplant if performed by the FUT technique charges the less cost as compared to the cost of the FUE technique.
The FUT technique is a scarless technique if performed with the advanced closing technique of the Trichophytic closure. The Trichophytic closure is an advanced way of closing the incision area with an overlapping process with the edges of the incision that allows the hair growth just from the edges of the incision and hides the incision scars completely. The Trichophytic closure supports a scarless result of the hair transplants.
There is no need to shave the total area of the scalp like the FUE technique. The Surgeon only shaves the area of extraction, i.e., the back & sides of the scalp and a patient don’t feel disincentive and easily ready for the procedure as the total shaving of hair of the scalp can be traumatizing.
On the whole, we can say that the procedure of hair transplant is one of the best permanent options for hair loss/baldness if performed with the expert Surgeon and followed by the right technique and advanced technology that gives you the best positive outcomes of the procedure.
