What are the advantages and disadvantages of the FUE and FUT surgical hair transplant procedures at Renew Clinic?
To begin with, the surgical FUE and FUT hair transplant techniques are cosmetic procedures that have permanent or long-term results. FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant is a less invasive procedure and consists in the harvesting of follicular units (groups of 1-4 hairs) from a donor area which is usually in the back of the head. The healthy hair is then implanted in the bald areas where it will grow normally restoring your natural hairlines. FUT or Follicular Unit Transplant technique is a more invasive surgical procedure which implies the removal of a strip of tissue from the donor area. The follicular units are harvested from this strip of tissue and then implanted in the bald areas, ensuring the same results as the FUE hair transplant technique. The only difference between the two hair transplant procedures is that FUE takes longer (up to 4-6 hours, or even two consecutive-day sessions) and the FUT leaves a linear and quite visible scar, so you should always leave your hair grow a bit longer in order to conceal it.
