Hair Transplant - FUT
FUT is conventional method of hair transplantation but often termed as golden technique in hair transplant proceedures (till date). The advantage of strip method is easy and economical. The only disadvantage of strip method is likely scar formation. But Trychophytic closure in experienced surgeon's hands would result in aesthetically acceptable or very negligible scar and almost invisible scar where hairs will grow through scar tissue..
Advantages of FUT :
- Most reliable and economical method
- Least time consuming (takes 15 to 20 minutes to harvest any number of grafts depending on the availability in donor area)
- Harvesting of grafts in large numbers is possible using FUT (ranging from 1,000 to 7,000 single hair strads or follicles) i.e equavalent to 500 to 3500 grafts
Disadvantages of FUT:
The only dis-advantage of FUT is likely fomation of scar. But it can still be repaired by implanting few hairs in the scar.
