Why Choose FUT at The Hair Transplant Center – New Jersey?

What Is An FUT Hair Transplant?

Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) is also known as strip harvesting. The FUT procedure involves taking a strip of hair from the back of the head. During this procedure, Dr. Golio and his team dissect this hair into individual grafts. Afterward, the team transplants the hair into areas where they are needed most to produce new growth. This method has been proven effective in restoring fullness for men and women with hair loss issues.

How Does an FUT Hair Transplant Work?

This procedure involves removing healthy hair follicles from one area and inserting them into balding and thinning regions of the scalp. During each session, a surgeon will extract thousands of grafts. The FUT hair transplant process can take anywhere from four to eight hours, depending on how many grafts you need for your desired look.

Who Needs A Follicular Unit Hair Transplant?

Are you wondering if you are eligible for FUT hair restoration? This procedure requires you to have enough hair on the donor area to use as a graft. Usually, patients suffering from androgenic alopecia are the best candidates for FUT hair transplantation. In males, pattern baldness usually appears in the M-shaped hairline, with hair loss starting at the temples. Females commonly experience hair loss at the top of the head.

However, the FUT procedure is not a recommended option for patients suffering from alopecia areata. In addition, it likely will not be an option for patients with medical conditions like a thyroid disorder. Furthermore, the following conditions determine whether you are a good candidate for FUT surgery.

  • Age: This hair transplant procedure is generally for people older than age 25.
  • Diagnosis: Typically, patients suffering from the Norwood pattern of baldness are the best candidates for hair restoration.
  • Hair thickness: As mentioned, hair loss patients with a high hair follicular density are eligible candidates for FUT.
  • Area of baldness: Patients with hair loss at the front of their heads are the best candidates for FUT.
  • Hair color: Your hair should be similar to your skin color. If so, you are a better candidate for FUT since your hair has less color contrast.

Advantages Of FUT Hair Transplantation

Follicular unit transplantation involves individual transplantation of hair follicles. Discover the following advantages:

Recovery Time

The FUT recovery time is quite manageable. Usually, the post-operation could last between 10 to 12 days. After FUT surgery, you may experience a high level of discomfort compared to other procedures due to the potential swelling of the donor area. Our New Jersey hair transplant surgeon can prescribe pain medication to ease the discomfort.

High Rate of Survivability

Your hair transplant surgeon will harvest hair from the mid-donor zone, an area where your hair is permanently growing. For that reason, you must have sufficient hair availability in the donor area to qualify for FUT. During the FUT procedure, Dr. Golio will carefully harvest the follicles and keep the protective tissue intact. By doing so, the grafts are robust and of high quality, ensuring higher survivability.

FUT Offers Natural-Looking Results

When you undergo FUT hair restoration, it will likely leave you with a thin linear scar. Usually, this scar is not more than 1 millimeter in diameter or less. However, you should not worry because your naturally existing hair can easily conceal it.

Dr. Golio will transplant small, naturally occurring groups of hair. Therefore, you can enjoy fuller, natural-looking hair.

Successive Sessions Won’t Produce Additional Scars

You will only have one scar left behind. Regardless of the number of FUT sessions you undergo, you won’t experience additional scarring. If you consider an FUT procedure, you’ll want to understand all the details about what this surgery entails.

Potential Side Effects Of Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Generally, FUT is a safe procedure when a qualified, skilled, and experienced hair restoration surgeon performs it. However, possible side effects could result.

Bleeding or Infection

The procedure involves surgical incisions and cuts on the scalp. In any surgical incision, excessive bleeding or infection could occur.

Scarring on Donor Area 

The strip hair transplant typically leaves a long, linear scar on the donor area. The scar can be hidden with your existing hair and can be evident when you wear your hair short. In some cases, the scar may fade after a long time.

Pain and Swelling

During the procedure, you won’t feel any pain. However, on the night after the treatment, you may experience discomfort. Also, some swelling in your head and face may occur as your scalp heals. You don’t have to worry because your doctor can provide you with pain relievers to ease the discomfort.

Shock Hair Loss

Whether it is a FUT or FUE procedure, the newly transplanted hairs will shed somewhat. Thus, you will experience donor hair effluvium (shock hair loss). Usually, hair loss occurs within two months after the procedure. This hair loss is normal because it is only making way for new hair to grow.

FUT Hair Transplant Cost

The cost of a FUT hair transplant is about the same as the FUE procedure. Discover some of the factors that can affect the prices of hair transplants:

  • Amount of hair grafts: Most hair restoration clinics charge by the number of grafts they transplant. However, some hair transplant clinics also offer fixed prices.
  • Hair transplant doctor: The experience and skills of the hair transplant surgeon can also affect the cost of the procedure.
  • The location of the clinic: The location of the hair transplant center can also affect the cost of the procedure. You may find clinics in cities that charge more for the FUT procedure.
  • Travel expenses: If you are going to travel to get the surgery, you should also add travel expenses into your budget.
