Natural Looking Results
When performing the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT or strip method) a strip of skin is removed form the back of the head. Grafts are then harvested from the skin and prepared. These are then placed in tiny cuts made at the front of the scalp. This procedure is normally reserved for those patients requiring a large number of grafts to be transplanted.
Strip FUT is suitable for patients suffering from advanced hair loss who require high graft numbers – however before you invest we would advise a consultation to review this further.

FUT Extraction Procedure
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT)- is a hair restoration technique, also known as the strip procedure, where a patient's hair is transplanted in naturally occuring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units.
from Donor Area
FUT procedure steps
Step 1 – During a FUT hair transplant, a local anesthetic will be used to numb the areas where follicles are being extracted and implanted.
Step 2 – The donor tissue is removed from the scalp in a single thin strip (Single-strip harvesting). The location of the donor area is carefully chosen to be a region of the scalp with maximum hair density and the best long-term stability.
Step 3 – In Follicular Unit Transplantation, the individual follicular units (each containing from 1 to 4 hairs) are meticulously dissected from the donor strip in their naturally occurring groups under strict stereo-microscopic control.
Step 4 – Recipient sites are made by the surgeon using a fine instrument the size of 21- and 19- gauge hypodermic needles. For most procedures, we use lateral (perpendicular slits) for the recipient sites. Recipient site creation is a critical aspect of hair restoration surgery that requires considerable experience and surgical skill and a keen aesthetic sense.
Step 5 – Once all of the recipient sites are made, the technician team begins to place the follicular unit grafts into these pre-made sites. One-hair follicular units are used in the frontal hair line to give a soft, natural appearance and 3- and 4-hair grafts are used in the central forelock area to achieve maximum fullness.
Step 6 – When placing is complete, the position of all of the grafts will be double-checked. The post-op instructions will be explained by our doctors.
