Hair transplantation is one of the common types of plastic surgery. Typically, this procedure involves removing hair from the back and bottom of the head and transplanting it to the areas where hair is falling out.
There are two types of hair transplant methods: **FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant)** and **FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)**. The best option for you will depend on your individual needs and the recommendations of your physician.
**The FUT method** of hair transplantation involves taking a strip of skin with hair follicles from the donor site, typically the back of your head where hair is naturally fuller and less prone to balding. From this skin, small groups of tissue containing hair follicles are separated and prepared for transplantation. While this is happening, tiny, individual holes are made in the recipient site where you are experiencing thinning or balding. The prepared grafts are then individually placed into the recipient site.
**The FUE technique** of hair transplantation was developed as a means to achieve the same results of FUT while addressing the disadvantages. Like FUT, FUE involves harvesting hair follicles from a donor site at the back of the head and moving them to create a fuller, natural-looking hairline. Unlike FUT, this method doesn’t involve removing a strip of tissue from the back of the head but rather collecting individual hair follicles directly from the scalp and inserting them into small incisions made in the recipient site.
DHI Hair Transplant (Direct Hair Implantation) is a more advanced hair transplantation method where the hair follicles are removed from the donor part of the body one-by-one using the first-rate extractor,
before directly being placed on the balding areas of the head.
