What other differences are there between these hair surgery techniques?

The two techniques, FUT hair transplant and FUE hair transplant, while similar in principle have a fundamental difference in the way the hair in harvested:

  • FUT, also known as the ‘strip method’ is where the surgeon will remove a strip of skin from the back of your head containing a number of hair follicles and graft them to the affected area. Read more 

  • FUE is a more time consuming procedure because individual follicles are extracted from the donor area one-by-one and then transplanted to the affected area. Read more
