Have you been experiencing hair loss and feel self-conscious about your appearance? Hair transplants are a popular and effective cosmetic procedure for hair restoration. Here is everything you need to know on how a Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) hair transplant can help you restore a healthy and full head of hair.
How an FUT Hair Transplant Works
Before this cosmetic procedure can be done, you will need to have a consultation with a board-certified surgeon to determine if you are an ideal candidate. A Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) hair transplant takes strips of hair follicles from the back of your head to be placed in the targeted area. The in-office procedure is performed using local anesthesia and can cover a large portion of the scalp with grafts that have an approximate 95% survival rate. A session can take between four to eight hours to transplant the grafts. You may have a linear scar that can be concealed underneath the hair.
Is a Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) Hair Transplant Right for You?
A Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) hair transplant is ideal for individuals who have significant balding. You may not be the right candidate if you wear shorter hairstyles, as the scarring can become visible. Other factors a surgeon will consider is your age, hair thickness, hair density, hair color and the degree of current baldness. You may need alternative treatment if you have scalp inflammation, visible scarring or excessive shedding. During an initial consultation, a board-certified plastic surgeon can explain the benefits and risks of the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
