FUE vs FUT Hair Transplant

Performed over 10,000+ Successful Hair Transplants

FUE and FUT are the main methods used to collect follicles from the donor area. FUE involves removing the grafts one by one from the donor area using special instruments. FUT involves cutting grafts from a strip of scalp obtained from the back or sides of the head. In both procedures, traces of hair transplantation are visible only for a week. Patients can return to normal daily activities the second day after the procedure, and new hair growth begins within 2 to 3 months and is usually complete within 10 to 12 months. See Hair Transplant Procedure. Keep in mind that surgeons who are not fully qualified in both techniques will likely only suggest one technique. It is better to choose a doctor who can perform both techniques at an expert level. With a well-trained hair transplant staff and hair transplant surgeon, rapid healing, minimal trauma, natural angles, direction and distribution of grafts can be easily achieved in both FUE and FUT. Dr. Sivas, an ABHRS (American Board of Hair Restoration) Certified Surgeon, has the artistic skill and expert skills that always provide natural-looking results with both FUE and FUT.

FUT hair transplant procedure

From the back of the head, where hair is not genetically susceptible to hair loss, follicles are extracted in the form of a strip - a flap, which is then transplanted into the problem area. After removing the flap, the area is closed with sutures. The follicles are separated using a specially designed microscope, and islands of natural hair are obtained. The transplantation process is the same as with the FUE method.

Healing takes about 10 days with washing, removal of scabs and removal of stitches. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and is completely painless. Doctors and assistants who separate hair follicles after extraction must have experience working with at least 500 patients. Only under these conditions can a satisfactory and natural result be achieved.

FUE and FUT - which method is better?

This section briefly compares the two methods. When comparing FUE and FUT/strip techniques, patients should consider the following:


FUT does not require shaving of all hair. FUT leaves a thin linear scar in the donor area, however, if done carefully, the scar may not be noticeable. Because FUT is an invasive method, it cannot be used in patients with a predisposition to keloids. The healing process is longer than FUEMicroscopic dissection must be performed carefully to maximize graft survival and achieve the desired results. With this technique, natural-looking results can be achieved by a highly skilled surgeon and team.

FUE technique

Advances in medical technology using the latest inFUE devices make it possible to perform high-quality hair transplants on suitable candidates, resulting in higher graft yields. The grafts are removed one at a time manually or motorically. There is no need to cut a strip from the donor area. Only tiny scars may be temporarily visible on the back of your head, which heal naturally without the need for stitches or bandages, hence no significant marks even if you shave your head.

Advantages of the FUE method

  • There are no longitudinal scars on the back of the head
  • On the back of the head, in the areas of follicle extraction, the healing time is faster than in the areas of transplantation
  • After the procedure there are no restrictions for physical activity
  • Much less discomfort in the area of ​​follicle collection
  • The technique makes it possible to consider alternative areas for hair follicle donation, instead of the occipital and temporal areas.
