FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)

Mohamed Taki | Medical Research Editor and Travel Expert

Follicular Unit Transplantation involves the removing of thin strips of skin from the donor site (typically the back and sides of the head), and implanting or relocating them to a bald spot on the head, often the front and top of the head.

The size and shape of the grafts depend on the degree of baldness, color, texture and thickness of the hair. Coarse and light-colored hair, such as grey or blonde, often results in better coverage than fine, dark-colored hair.


A Good Candidate for FUT Method (Follicular Unit Transplantation)

The first step to determining the right candidate for hair transplant surgery is by determining the grafts available to donate. Suitable candidates must have enough hair to supply the bald areas without causing a balding effect to the donor area.

The hair in the donor area must be thick, so that it can arrange for a realistic appearance after the hair transplant.

The age and level of baldness are significant when considering a hair transplant candidate. The patient is recommended to be at an age where pattern baldness is apparent or eventually will be apparent.

Your cosmetic surgeon will further discourse with you once he or she has viewed pictures or has seen you in person. Resultant of hair growing at a particular angle and in a specific direction, the hair growth patterns must be replicated as close as possible.

When the hair transplant is completed, the restored hair will look natural and no different from the original pattern of hair growth. It is imperative that the patient understand all aspects of this cosmetic surgery and is encouraged throughout the hair transplant process.


Preparing for FUT Method (Follicular Unit Transplantation)

One Week Prior to your Hair Transplant Operation:

· Refrain from Aspirin and Vitamin E intake one week before your operation

· Refrain from smoking or limit the amount

· Do not get a haircut

· You may dye your hair one week before your surgery but you cannot dye it for 6 weeks after

· If you use hair replacement, please remove it one week before the operation

· Stretch the skin in the donor site area at least five times a day

· Refrain from alcohol consumption one day before the surgery

· Eat a light breakfast the morning of the operation, and after the operation eat a light lunch

· Wear a button-down shirt the day of the operation


FUT Method (Follicular Unit Transplantation) Procedure

The patient will have a consultation with the hair transplant surgeon prior to the surgery to determine the size, shape and number of the grafts needed to be transferred.

This will depend on the size of the bald spot and the color and coarseness of the hair. The hair on the donor area will be trimmed short so that the grafts can easily be removed. Both the donor and the recipient areas will be treated with local anesthesia.

After the donor and recipient areas have been anesthetized, your hair transplant surgeon will use a scalpel to carefully remove strips of the donor scalp, which is then stapled or stitched.

The FUT procedure will leave a thin scar on the back of the head. The strips will be examined under a microscope and then divided into smaller pieces and categorized according to the number of hair follicles per root.

In the top, frontal area of the head (assuming that this is the recipient area), tiny holes or slits will be created where the grafts will be implanted. Your hair transplant surgeon will use a pen-like instrument to pack the graphs into the tiny holes in the recipient area.

After the graphs have been transplanted, your scalp will be cleansed and covered with gauze. Normally, your surgeon will require that you wear a pressure bandage for approximately one week following the surgery.


Risks and Side Effects of FUT Method (Follicular Unit Transplantation)

The day after the surgery, you may brush or comb your hair without exerting any pressure on the affected area.

· Avoid alcohol consumption for 5 days after operation

· The affected areas may need to be bandaged overnight.

· Your doctor will give you a head band to wear around the donor site for at least one week, which will protect the affected area from infection and reduce swelling.

· Avoid strenuous activity during the first few days after your hair transplant surgery.

· Expect swelling, bruising, headache and mild discomfort. These symptoms can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relievers.

· Scabs will form at the graft/recipient site. Let them fall off naturally, or wait until your visit back to the doctor to have your staples removed, so that the scabs may be removed hygienically and diligently.

· Do not use an electric razor for 6 months after your hair transplant surgery.

· Avoid saunas, artificial or natural sunbathing and wearing a motorcycle helmet for 2 weeks after surgery.

· Avoid scratching or picking at your scalp for the first 3 months after your surgery, as it may cause an infection or pimples.

· On the day of your hair transplant surgery, after surgery, make sure you ice your eye and temple area for 10 minutes every hour.

· Sleep with a raised pillow for the first few nights after your surgery.

· 3 days after the operation, you may gently wash the affected area.

· Your doctor may prescribe or recommend a medicated lotion to rub on the affected area until the scabs fall off.


Results of FUT Method (Follicular Unit Transplantation)

Subsequent to the lack of oxygen transported to the transplanted roots, the transplanted hair will fall out within 1-2 months.

The transplanted roots will strengthen in 12-14 weeks, in which time new strands will be produced. New hair will start to grow in the grafted area within 3 months. You should expect full results after 8 months – 1 year. The normal rate of hair growth per month is approximately 1 cm.
