FUT Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a procedure in which hair is transplanted from a donor site (the area in the back or sides of the head (where the hair is more resistant to loss) to the bald or balding areas of the scalp. The FUT technique accomplishes this by using groups of one to four hairs, or follicular units, from a thin donor strip. Once extracted, Dr. Stong’s team uses precise microscopic dissection techniques to prepare the graft follicles for permanent implantation into the recipient (balding) sites of the scalp. You can trust that the Kalos Hair Transplant clinic is equipped with the expertise and talent it takes to create the most natural and healthy-looking results. Our team is dedicated to making sure every procedure yields the highest-quality cosmetic results for each patient.
Follicular Unit Transplantation can be used for both men and women. While it is common to think of men when we think about hair loss, many women experience thinning hair and balding as well. Because FUT is such a precise procedure, women, as well as men, are pleased with the results. Individual hairs are grafted to the balding areas of the scalp, leading to a natural-looking result that allows you to wear any hairstyle you desire, including very short styles.
To eliminate the concern of linear scarring in FUT, patients may also choose Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) using NeoGraft. The difference between FUT and FUE is how the hair is harvested from the donor area. Where FUT removes a single, thin strip to dissect the follicles, but leaves behind a linear scar, the NeoGraft device allows the individual follicular units to be removed directly from the back and sides of the scalp, with no visible scar. The NeoGraft system improves the speed at which the follicles can be extracted and we often extract and implant 3000 follicular units in a single session. Dr. Stong will clearly explain which procedure he recommends for you based on your goals and your individual treatment needs.
Because Dr. Stong and his team are proficient in several different hair restoration techniques and treatments, you can feel confident they will assess your situation and take every step necessary to ensure the most optimal outcome for you. Depending on your particular amount of hair loss, Dr. Stong may choose a treatment modality that combines non-surgical techniques with FUT or FUE. These non-surgical treatments may include platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling or stem cell therapy. While these non-surgical interventions can each be used as a stand-alone technique, they are also used in conjunction with FUT and FUE to accelerate healing, improve the overall results, and manage hair loss after transplant.
Many people put off having hair restoration techniques due to fear of the final result looking unnatural or artificial. With the advanced technology used at Kalos Hair Transplant and the precise expertise of Dr. Stong and his team, these worries can be laid to rest. We can provide a variety of testimonials from previous clients to calm your concerns and give you the confidence to move forward with the hair restoration you have wanted for so long.
