What are the Advantages of Follicular Unit Transplantation?
You may have enjoyed a full head of hair as a young man, but it all changed when you turned 30 as your hair started to become thinner and thinner due to excessive hair loss. And by the time you’re 40, you are already almost bald. You are not the only one going through this. About 42% of all men, who are still in their 40s, experience moderate to extensive hair loss. Boston Follicular Unit Transplantation may be a good option for you if you want to restore your hair to its former glory.
A Quick Overview of FUT
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a type of hair transplantation technique that mimics the natural growth of hair. It is ideal for people with large bald patches on their head. In this procedure, an entire strip of hair is taken from a ‘donor site’ where hair growth is still normal. This strip of hair is then transplanted to a ‘recipient site’ where hair loss is quite obvious. The incision on the ‘donor site’ is then sutured, leaving a linear scar on the scalp. Although a scar is left, it can easily be covered when your hair grows back.
Advantages of FUT
There are several advantages of FUT which include:
- Improved and natural-looking hair once the hair grows back
- Has a higher yield of hair than Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
- A larger number of follicles can be transplanted in just a single session compared to other hair transplant procedures, such as FUE
- More affordable compared to FUE.
If you are suffering from advanced hair loss, then Boston Follicular Unit Transplantation is perfect for you.
FUT is a highly effective way to restore your hair. However, you need to disclose everything about your medical history to your surgeon to avoid complications, especially if you are taking any blood thinning medications.
