The traditional strip method

The Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) is the traditional method in hair transplantation where a strip of tissue is removed from the donor area which will be closed with sutures. A team of highly skilled technicians dissects the tissue under the microscope into individual follicular units or grafts.

After grouping the grafts, the physician designs a plan for placement in order to obtain a natural result. Once designed, the surgeon makes micro-incisions into the recipient area, and the grafts are placed one after another by hand. One and two hair grafts are used to create a natural soft hairline while three and four hair grafts are used to add density behind the hairline, just as nature made it.


Patient experience

Patient experience

An FUT procedure takes a full day to complete. Patients spend the day watching movies, working on their tablet, eating lunch, and may even take a nap during the procedure.



Healing & growth

The donor area stitches are removed in 10-14 days; you may experience redness or scabbing that subsides in 5-7 days. You’re able to drive yourself to and from the procedure and can return to work in a day or so.

You’ll see new growth in about 3 months; then, the hair will continue to thicken and new growth will continue throughout 12 months. Color, texture, and growth rate will stay the same.
