What hair loss treatment is best for you? Compare hair restoration techniques
It’s sometimes hard to know which hair restoration treatment is best for you. The choice is not always easy if you are not an expert in hair transplant surgery. With a number of factors to consider we have compiled this easy reference table to compare the techniques or FUE and FUT hair surgery procedures, helping you in your selection of the best technique for your hair transplant.
What other differences are there between these hair surgery techniques?
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

who is your surgeon? – Seek information about your prospective surgeon; so much of the success of your treatment is in their hands. In the UK they should be registered on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council (GMC) as a Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist.
shop around – Compare the experience of surgeons with information gathered on their respective websites. Will you be treated like just another patient, or with special care and attention? Do you feel comfortable with your chosen clinic and surgeon?
meet the surgeon – The best way to make a judgement is to have a conversation with your surgeon.
