FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) uses a “strip method” that involves the removal of a long, thin piece of tissue from the back of the scalp. Stereo-microscopic dissection is then used to remove individual follicular units from the strip. The wound is closed after the follicles have been harvested, leaving a single, very fine linear scar. FUT is a combination of formulations and techniques that ensures quicker and successful results.

Our Patients


Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a surgical hair restoration technique that involves removing a thin strip of hair-bearing skin from the back or sides of the scalp, often referred to as the donor area. This strip is then dissected under a microscope to separate individual hair follicles, which are subsequently transplanted into the balding or thinning areas of the scalp. Known for its efficiency in harvesting a large number of grafts in a single session, FUT provides natural-looking results by preserving the hair's natural growth pattern and density.
