“FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), also known as the strip method, are two techniques commonly used in hair transplant surgery. FUE is a minimally invasive method where individual hair follicles are harvested one by one from the donor area and transplanted to the recipient site. This technique results in small incisions on the scalp but leaves no linear scar.

FUT, on the other hand, requires removal of a strip of skin from the donor area, typically the back of the head, which is then dissected into individual hair follicles for transplantation. This results in a linear scar in the donor area that may be visible with short hair.

FUE has a faster healing time and less pain and swelling compared to FUT, but FUT may be better for individuals with substantial hair loss as it allows for the transplantation of more hair follicles in a single session.

The best technique for an individual depends on factors such as the degree of hair loss, scalp looseness, and personal preferences. It’s essential to consult with a qualified hair transplant specialist to determine the right approach for your individual needs.”
