Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
In FUT surgery, a surgeon cuts a strip of skin from the back or side of your head and extracts individual hair follicles. These follicles are then inserted into the balding parts of your scalp. The surgery works best at covering a receding hairline caused by male pattern baldness.
Hair transplant surgeries take between 4 and 8 hours
Some potential complications include: unnatural looking hair; bumps or scarring; inflammation of hair follicles (folliculitis); bleeding; swelling; pain; numbness; cysts.
Most people stay awake during the surgery with a local anesthesia that numbs their scalp. The surgeon will re-draw your hairline, mark the area of hair extraction, and take photographs for your medical record. You may have the option of taking a sedative before surgery. Local anaesthesia will be applied to your scalp to numb it. The hair at the donor site, where your hair is removed from, will be trimmed to about two millimeters. The surgeon will cut out the strip of skin with the hair follicles that will be used as a graft. You’ll stay awake during the surgery. A technician will remove individual hair follicles from the strip and prepare them for transplantation. The surgeon will close your scalp with sutures. The hair follicles will then be inserted into the balding parts of your scalp in a pattern that looks natural. An antibiotic and bandages will be applied to your scalp.
