Advantages of FUE over FUT hair transplant technique

Along with the pass­ing of time and the devel­op­ment of tech­nol­o­gy there have also been break­throughs in the plas­tic surgery field. Most notable in regards to bald­ness or alope­cia and hair thin­ning, in both men and women. Hair loss is a promi­nent cos­met­ic issue caused by a great num­ber of rea­sons, includ­ing genet­ic and med­ical issues that affects 1 out of 3 men and 1 out of 5 women, caus­ing aes­thet­ic dis­tress, and hav­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty of lead­ing to self-con­fi­dence issues, as well as social iso­la­tion, due to the impor­tance we give to good looks in today’s soci­ety. The Renew Hair Clin­ic keeps up with this devel­op­ment and with its team of high­ly trained and expe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­als it can help pro­vide the amaz­ing and rev­o­lu­tion­ary treat­ment solu­tion, name­ly the FUE sur­gi­cal hair trans­plant.

So why choose the Fol­lic­u­lar Unit Extrac­tion over Fol­lic­u­lar Unit Trans­plan­ta­tion sur­gi­cal hair trans­plant? Well there are many rea­sons and advan­tages to the first pro­ce­dure that play an impor­tant role in your deci­sion to under­go such a hair restora­tion treat­ment. First of all, both pro­ce­dures use a donor area, gen­er­al­ly the back of the head, but the dif­fer­ence here lies in the fact that fol­lic­u­lar unit trans­plan­ta­tion implies strip har­vest­ing, which means that an entire tis­sue strip or hair graft is col­lect­ed from the donor area, while the fol­lic­u­lar unit extrac­tion implies the har­vest­ing of indi­vid­ual fol­lic­u­lar units, mak­ing for a less inva­sive pro­ce­dure.

Fol­lic­u­lar Unit Extrac­tion hair trans­plant is min­i­mal­ly inva­sive and is car­ried out under a local anaes­thet­ic, so there is lit­tle to no dis­com­fort felt dur­ing the hair restora­tion pro­ce­dure. The har­vest­ing of healthy hair from the donor area is made per hair and not per graft, so we are able to ensure the selec­tion of the strongest, health­i­est fol­li­cles from the scalp with the use of fine, nee­dle-point instru­ments that cause min­i­mal trau­ma to the scalp skin and allows fast and com­plete recov­ery. An essen­tial supe­ri­or­i­ty of the FUE pro­ce­dure over the FUT sur­gi­cal hair trans­plant is that FUE requires no stitch­es and leaves no scars in the donor area, where­as the FUT which uses strip-har­vest­ing leaves a quite vis­i­ble, lin­ear scar.

Even though the Fol­lic­u­lar Unit Extrac­tion sur­gi­cal hair trans­plant tech­nique may require more time, depend­ing on the size of the bald­ing areas that need to be cov­ered (1–2 ses­sions), you can rest assured that the results will be per­ma­nent, unde­tectable, mak­ing for a more nat­ur­al and denser look. This is due to, as men­tioned ear­li­er, the selec­tion of only the health­i­est and strongest of hair fol­li­cles, unlike the FUT or Fol­lic­u­lar Unit Trans­plan­ta­tion pro­ce­dure where all strands from the graft are used.

The FUE pro­ce­dure is also a bit more pri­cy than the FUT sur­gi­cal hair trans­plant, but unlike the vis­i­ble unaes­thet­ic scar left by the FUT pro­ce­dure, the tiny inci­sions made for the FUE implan­ta­tions of the healthy hair fol­li­cles will heal com­plete­ly in approx. 5 to 7 days, when red­ness and slight scalp swelling will have sub­sided as well.

As ear­li­er men­tioned, the med­ical staff of the Renew Hair Clin­ic, is high­ly trained and expe­ri­enced, offer­ing you the best cos­met­ic results for the FUE or Fol­lic­u­lar Unit Extrac­tion sur­gi­cal hair trans­plant pro­ce­dure. Mak­ing sure that you can resume your dai­ly life with more self-con­fi­dence and a greater appetite for life.
