The FUT hair transplant technique (Follicular Unit Transplantation), also known as the FUSS technique or the Strip technique, owes its meaning to its acronym in English, whose translation is follicular unit strip surgery.
It is one of the pioneering techniques in hair transplantation, which is why it is so famous in this field, although this type of surgery is currently not the most widely used, in some cases it is still used to cover an area of our scalp.
The FUT hair transplant technique is usually chosen by patients who are afraid of shaving the hair and it is evident that they have done a hair transplant surgery, so this technique is carried out so that their hair graft can be concealed and returned to social and working life without giving any kind of explanation.
What is the FUT Hair Transplant Technique?
This surgery is ambulatory, with local anesthesia and light sedation. It consists of extracting healthy follicular units from a strip of skin, which will be extracted by the surgeon, directly from the donor area. In this area there will be a scar that, after the intervention of the doctor, will be hidden, thanks to the use of trichophytic suture; hair will grow unhindered during the healing process.
This intervention, the FUT hair transplant technique is a little more invasive than the other hair transplant techniques, so we will need intensive and strict post-operative care. In addition, it is very important to follow a preventive treatment for alopecia such as: oral and topical treatment, hair mesotherapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), as long as your doctor recommends it, so we will benefit the "new hair", that we have just transplanted and will stop hair loss that I already had, obtaining unbeatable results.
In conclusion, at Doctor Panno's Hair Transplant Clinic, we train our technicians to follow the same procedural pattern as the doctor's, in order to obtain the most optimal results in hair surgery. Very shallow incisions of less than 3mm are used and following the pattern or orientation of your hair, so that it looks completely natural and has the exact density, leaving behind problems such as male alopecia.
