Types Of Men’s Hair Transplants
There are two categories in which men’s hair transplants procedure fall into. Both are highly effective but use different techniques to extract the DHT-resistant follicles from the donor area which covers the back and sides of the head. Extraction of follicles from the donor site is commonly known as ‘Harvesting’ and this can be carried out in two ways, via FUT or FUE:
The FUT hair transplant procedure also known as Strip is more suitable to those who have more extensive hair loss as up to 3000 grafts can be transplanted at one time, depending on the patient’s density and scalp elasticity. With this procedure, a very thin, linear scar is left across the scalp in the donor area which can be hidden by longer hair (grade 2 or above).
FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and refers to the technique via which a small round punch is used to extract units of hair follicles one by one from an area of dense hair growth and transplant them to an area of baldness. Each follicular unit (follicle) contains one to four hairs. FUE is best used on patients who are looking to have just 1 or 2 small areas covered.
Is FUT or FUE Better For Me?
As a rule patients who require large scale implantation in one sitting must elect for FUT. This is because there is a confidence in the FUT extraction technique that a yield of between 2500 and 3000 will be possible in a single sitting. Yields of over 3000 follicles are not unheard of if scalp elasticity is high as the availability of excess scalp tissue material is the determining factor in FUT yield. Conversely it is possible that a patient with a tight scalp may only achieve a yield of up to 2200 follicles, scalp elasticity will be checked at your consultation before this procedure is recommended.
If it is determined that you are suitable for the other technique you should be aware FUE extraction takes longer to ensure integrity and optimise successful growth. The follicles are extracted 1 by 1 and are picked based on how healthy they look. As we are taking from the back we have to ensure each graft we take has at least 5-6 grafts left surrounding it otherwise it can start to thin, this is why less grafts can be taken with FUE in one sitting. The FUE option is viable to patients who require generally no more than 2200 – 3000 grafts. Cases towards the end of this scale may require 2 seperate treatments 6 months apart.
Patients should exercise extreme caution when dealing with clinics who promise to extract and implant above 3000 follicles in one treatment, irrespective of whether the proposed treatment is FUE or FUT. With FUT there is no guarantees the strip density will provide over 3000 and with FUE if they promise a graft count that high they are risking “over-harvesting” which leaves the donor area looking thin and depleted.
The typical success rates in hair transplants are 92% for FUE and 97% for FUT. This is mainly due to the time the grafts are out the body, it is slightly longer with FUE. However, as with FUE we can pick the follicles producing more hairs, visually there is little aesthetic difference in the long run.
During the consultation, we will look at your family history of hair loss. If your family has a lot of Norwood 6/7 then we are more likely to recommend FUT which can get 6000 grafts over 2 treatments opposed to FUE getting around 4000.
Due to FUE being individual extraction it requires more skill and takes much longer therefore the cost is higher. The cost difference from FUT to FUE can range from £600 to £1500 depending on the size of the case. Costs for both procedures can be spread over monthly instalments starting from £50 a month.
FUE typically takes slightly longer than FUT even though you can get less grafts in one treatment. This is due to us taking the follicles 1 by 1 whereas with FUT we take all the grafts at once. FUE takes roughly 8 hours for a full 2200 whereas FUT takes around 6 hours for up to 3000.
