FUT Hair Transplant

In this method a strip is removed from the back of head, better known as donor’s site. A strip of specific measure as per the requirement is cut from the donor’s site. The strip is then painstakingly analyzed under magnifying instrument and every hair root is divided. The contributor territory is sewed utilizing 'Trichophytic Closure Technique’, which leaves a scarcely obvious scar. The hair is then transplanted on to the uncovered region where they develop characteristically. The greatest point of interest of this strategy is higher joining yield for every session.

This method was traditionally used for large areas to cover but with the advancement in technology, FUE hair transplant method is now more successful in comparison to FUT method.


  • A large number of grafts can be harvested in one go. Nearly 2,500 to 3,000 grafts can be taken out. Since each graft has anywhere between 1 and 4 follicles, this means nearly 6,000 to 6,500 follicles can be taken out in one session.
  • No need for shaving the hair.
  • Early return to work.
  • Minimum wastage rates, of 0 to 1%
  • Larger follicle to graft ratio as compared to FUE.
  • Much faster process, leading to good patient satisfaction.


  • Need for an incision at the back with fine layer of sutures.




  • What is microfollicular hair transplant surgery?
    • This is a surgical process which redistributes hair in areas of baldness by a technique which allows transplantation of single hair follicle one by one.

  • Is Micro-follicular hair transplant the same as the previous procedure?
    • No. earlier plugs of hair or minigrafts containing 3-4 hair follicles were used. Today we realise that the best results are obtained when we use micrografts containing 1-2 hair follicles for hair transplant. This extremely delicate and painstaking procedure results in satisfactory results.

  • What are the benefits of Micro-follicular hair transplant surgery?
    • Because the donor hair is transplanted from areas not susceptible to balding, the results last a lifetime. This procedure is being used both in men and in women in androgenic alopecia as well as in other alopecia conditions, scars etc. this is a comfortable procedure, allowing return to work as soon as the next day.

  • Who is a good candidate for a hair transplant surgery?
    • If the candidate has realistic expectations from the surgery, willing to understand the process and accept that the hair transplant results can take uptoan year to come, he will be a good candidate. The most important aspect is the presence of hair on the potential donor sites, like the back of the head, without which hair transplant cannot be done.

  • What are the steps in a hair transplant procedure?
    • This procedure involves removal of hair strip from the back of the head after giving a few injections of local anesthesia. The strip is then processed to remove hair roots containing units known as micrografts or follicular units. These micrografts are then implanted one by one in the areas of baldness after giving a few local anesthesia injections there. The whole process can take 4-10 hours.

  • What is the recovery time?
    • We remove the bandages the next day. There is a bit of swelling in the area of the back of the head which can persist for a few days, however that should not stop you from carrying on your normal activities.

  • Are there complications or risks for a hair transplant?
    • None. Antibiotics are given to prevent infections. A scar on the back of the head is inevitable. However that is not visible and gets hidden beneath the hair.

  • What if the implanted hair falls?
    • Implanted hair fall within first month of hair transplant surgery. The transplanted root form new hair in 3-4 months time. They become of combable length by 6-9 months and grow like any normal hair i.e. In cycle. So they may cyclically fall and in few weeks also start re-growth. The final result is achieved by 1 to 1 and a half year when the texture and thickness of transplanted hair becomes fully mature.

  • How long do I have to take rest after hair transplant surgery?
    • You may not require rest but rest of 2-3 days may be sufficient. You should avoid heavy exercise or weight lifting etc. for a week or more after hair transplant surgery.

  • If hair transplant surgery is a day treatment will I have full-grown hair when I leave the hair transplant clinic?
    • The treatment of grafting the hair roots is over in few hour of the day and you may have short hair sticking out from the roots but it takes 8-18 months for the full grown results (average 1 year).

  • Can hair from other parts of my body be transplanted?
    • Technically hair transplant surgery from other parts of the body is possible but hair follicle from the other parts of the body when planted on the head, does maintain its genetic characteristics, and hence it does not look, feel and grow as good as scalp hair.

  • Do I need to get my hair trimmed short before the hair transplant surgery?
    • We recommend, not to undergo short trimming. Longer hair may make our plantation a bit difficult but these existing long hair will help to hide (cover) plantation site and donor site in such a way that no one can make out that you have under gone hair hair transplant surgery.
