FUT Hair Transplants


Optimal Harvesting of Grafts from Safe Donor Area

A Highly Reliable Procedure

FUT (Follicle Unit Transplant) surgery, also known as FUS/T (Follicle Unit Strip Transplant) is a procedure used to harvest a strip of hair follicles from the donor area at the back and sides of the head, allowing for sufficient hair follicles to be transplanted into the recipient area.

Follicle Unit Transplant surgery is considered one of the best methods to harvest grafts from the “heart” of the Safe Donor Area (SDA).

Once the strip of skin has been harvested, the hair follicles are cut from the tissue strip under stereo-microscopic vision and then transplanted into the recipient area into the recipient sites.

“The hospitality and constant care during and after the procedure was simply 5 star treatment. I’m proud to say that my results have been life transforming“ – R McDonagh

The incision made to harvest the strip of skin will ultimately leave a linear scar.

This should not be of great concern, as the scar will be very thin and hair growth surrounding the scar will cover the area sufficiently.

By doing a Trichophytic closure, the lower edge of the Follicle Unit Transplant wound is beveled and this allows hair shafts to grow through the scar and thereby providing added camouflaging of the scar.

Therefore the scar will almost not be visible when the hair is combed open around the scar and it will certainly not be visible once the hair returns to its usual length and hangs over the scar area.
