Follicular unit transplantation, also known as the strip procedure, is a hair restoration procedure where our hair surgeon transplants the patient’s hair in follicular units, which are naturally occurring groups of usually 1 to 4 hairs. The hair follicles are extracted from strips of skin cut from the back or side of the head and then inserted into balding spots on the scalp. Many of our patients in New Jersey choose FUT hair transplants to cover a receding hairline due to male pattern baldness. After a FUT hair transplant, the results are a fuller and natural looking head of hair.

The price of a FUT procedure at The Hair Transplant Center – New Jersey depends on factors such as the amount of hair grafts required to achieve your desired results. Costs can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Golio.

Advantages of FUT Hair Transplantation

FUTs have several advantages, making it an appealing hair transplant surgery for those who want to restore their hair. You’ll have fuller, thicker hair sooner than you think when you choose FUT.

Recovery Time

The FUT recovery is manageable and the postoperative period could last between ten to 12 days. After FUT surgery, you may experience discomfort or itchiness at the donor and transplant sites. Our hair transplant surgeons can prescribe medication to ease any pain.

High Rate of Survivability

Your hair transplant surgeon will harvest follicles from the mid-donor zone, where your hair is continuously growing. Therefore, you must have enough hair in the donor area to qualify for FUT. During the FUT procedure, your hair surgeon carefully harvests the viable hair follicles, keeping the protective tissue intact to ensure quality grafts and 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. However, there’s no need to worry because your natural hair can easily conceal it.

Successive Sessions Won’t Produce Additional Scars

Regardless of the number of FUT sessions you undergo, you won’t experience additional scarring.

Who Needs A Follicular Unit Transplant?

An FUT procedure requires enough hair on the donor area to use as a graft. The following conditions determine whether you are a good candidate for FUT surgery.

  • Age: This hair transplant procedure is generally for people older than 25.
  • Diagnosis: Typically, patients suffering from the Norwood pattern of baldness are the best candidates for hair restoration.
  • Hair thickness: 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.

How Does a FUT Hair Transplant Work?

The FUT procedure involves removing healthy hair follicles from one area of the head and inserting them into balding and thinning regions of the scalp. The procedure may vary by patient, but in general the process is as follows:

Dr. Golio begins by redrawing your hairline and marking areas for extraction. Next he administers a local anesthesia to numb the scalp. The hair at the donor site (usually the back or sides of the head) is trimmed to a few millimeters in length. Next, the surgeon cuts thin strips of skin from the donor site and then closes the areas with sutures. The surgeon then removes the follicles from the strips of skin and then re-inserts the follicles into balding areas of the scalp using a natural-looking pattern. Lastly, antibiotics or bandages are applied to the scalp.

The FUT procedure can take about four to eight hours on average, depending on how many grafts you need for your desired look. Most of our patients see their final results after 6 months to a year.

What Are The Potential Side Effects of FUT?

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

Bleeding or Infection

The procedure involves surgical incisions and cuts on the scalp. With 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 visible when you wear your hair short. In some cases, the scar may fade over time.

Pain and Swelling

During the procedure, you won’t feel any pain. However, on the night after treatment, you may experience discomfort. Also, some swelling in your head and face may occur as your scalp heals. Your hair transplant doctor can provide medication to ease any discomfort.

Shock Hair Loss

Whether it is a FUT or FUE procedure, the newly transplanted hairs will shed and you’ll experience donor hair effluvium (shock hair loss). This hair loss is normal and typically occurs within two months after the procedure.


How Do I Prepare for FUT Treatment?

Before your FUT hair restoration surgery, you should avoid the following for ten days prior to your procedure.

  • Drinking alcohol
  • Taking multivitamins or supplements
  • Smoking
  • Taking Aspirin or Tylenol
  • Spending lots of time in the sun
  • Caffeine

Follow your hair surgeon’s instructions in order to be adequately prepared. Additionally, It’s best to get a good night’s rest before your procedure and eat a hearty breakfast.

How Does FUT Compare to FUE?

Another common hair restoration procedure besides FUT is FUE, or follicular unit extraction. Both FUT and FUE involve the transplanting of hair follicles individually. However, the FUT technique harvests an entire strip of hair from the donor site, whereas the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique removes individual hair follicles.

FUE is a more common procedure than FUT. Many patients prefer FUE because it results in less scarring, quicker healing, is less painful, and can be done with hair from other parts of the body. However, FUT may be a better option if you have extensive balding or thinning hair and need a larger number of follicles grafted. FUT may also be more cost-effective than FUE for many patients.

Dr. Golio will discuss the pros and cons of FUT vs. FUE during your consultation.
