FUT or FUE Which Is Best

The extraction method of the follicular units is the differentiating factor between FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).

The FUT method involves the extraction of the follicular units from donor areas done with the way of removal of a strip measuring 20 to 25 cm in length and 1 to 1.5 cm in width. The units are cut with the help of a scalpel which is 5 mm thick. Comparatively, the FUE method involves the extraction of the follicles by using micro incision with the aid of punch tools.

FUT process necessitates stiches to the donor regions, thus leaving a line scar, whereas the FUE process does not require stitches though it leaves multiple point scars all over the donor area and these are not easily visible. The time for healing in FUT is approximately 14-21 days, while in the case of FUE it is 5 to 7 days.

FUE essentially requires shaving of the entire scalp whereas FUT does not require any change in your present hair style. This is the biggest advantage of FUT over FUE and also that FUT has a higher success rate compared to FUE due to less damage to the follicles as It is done by dissection under very high magnification.

Also in FUT, we can do upto 3000 grafts in a day session as compared to 1500 to 2000 grafts in a day session by FUE.

Conclusively, we can say that the FUE technique is the best for any gender in comparison to the FUT method of stripping. But, again it depends on individual choice and he suggestions of professional surgeons to decide on the final method to adopt.

Comparatively, the FUT surgery is less costly and time consuming than FUE surgery. If these factors mentioned above are taken into consideration, it is always advisable to opt for FUE rather than FUT but it is always a personal choice of the client.
