More on hair transplants
The two main types of hair transplants performed these days are called follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Here is a quick summary of their differences.
As you can see, there are some clear differences between FUE and FUT. Let’s break it down even further.
Advantages of FUE
- No Scar
- Faster Recovery
- Less post-procedure discomfort
- More Natural Results
Advantages of FUT
- Usually a faster procedure
- High quality donor hair
- Can be a one-off session
- Can be cheaper
FUE and FUT are both effective procedures, but in order to make the best decision for yourself, you should always see a qualified hair transplant surgeon who can tailor treatment to you.
Risks of these procedures include infection, bleeding, unsightly scarring and failure to induce hair growth. These risks are much more common with inexperienced surgeons.
The better the hair transplant surgeon, the better your results will be.
