FUT is commonly referred to as the Strip procedure. It is the more familiar surgical hair restoration technique using naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units. FUT is an advanced hair transplantation procedures that produces a naturally appearing hairline and appearance.
With the FUT procedure, a strip of scalp is surgical excised and the individual hair follicles are created into naturally occurring hair grafts by our surgeon and skilled technicians. The strip removed is taken from the "safe" or permanent zone of the scalp where the hair follicles are resistant to hair follicle miniaturization or balding. The entire procedure is done under local anesthetic. Most patients are able to relax during the procedure watching television or listening to music.
Since the follicular unit is a distinct anatomic and physiologic entity, preserving it intact during the graft dissection is felt to maximize growth. In FUT, after hair is removed from the back of the scalp in a single strip, stereo-microscopic dissection allows the individual follicular units to be removed from this strip without being damaged.
Follicular Unit Transplantation enables the hair transplant to look natural both at the individual follicular unit level, and in regards to the overall graft distribution. Since scalp hair normally grows in follicular units of 1 to 4 hairs, the exclusive use of these naturally occurring units with FUT ensures that each graft will be identical to the surrounding follicular units. Thus, when the transplanted follicular units grow hair after a transplant, the overall results of the transplant will appear natural.
