Are you losing precious hair?! Are you worried that you’re gradually becoming less attractive?! Then rest assured because we’re here for you; in fact, not only us, but the global community of hair transplant stands by your side. Since the days of Punch Hair Transplant invented by Dr. Orentreich in 1950s, the procedures of hair transplantation have come a long way to make you look younger, more attractive and endow you with a more vibrant social life. The advent of Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) took place in 1990’s to give men and women hope that they can revive their appearance and achieve a younger version of themselves even at advanced age. By the passage of time, the inexorable process of the advancement of the technologies involved in hair transplantation reached new frontiers of FUE, an acronym which stands for Follicular Unit Extraction, a technique elaborately discussed in another one of our essays.


Advantages and disadvantages of FUT

Follicular Unit Transplantation commonly involves a technique in which follicular units (groups of one to four hairs) are transplanted into a patient’s scalp skin. The major advantage of this type of hair transplant is that the surgeon would be able to transplant thousands of grafts in a single session. Consequently, the chances of success would increase and the patient would be able to monitor the changes made during the session after a short period of time.

On a more general note, FUT is popularly regarded as a major breakthrough in the field of hair transplant with more benefits compared to more traditional methods in which larger grafts were used. Precisely speaking, the conventional methods used to give the patient’s scalp an unnatural and uneven look. Moreover, if performed correctly, FUT tends to produce new hair exactly the way natural hair grows; therefore, it would barely be recognized as transplanted hair.

In addition to all this, FUT guarantees more natural-looking hair compared to older methods and that is due to the fact that the exclusive use of units of 1 to 4 hairs ensures that the transplanted graphs would be quite similar to the natural hair surrounding them.

Furthermore, FUTs are, more often than not, more straightforward procedures in terms of planning for the specialist or surgeon. This is due to the fact that the density of follicular units in a normal scalp does not fluctuate and the surgeon would easily be able to guess the number of grafts that can be obtained.

All this being said, a closer look at this method could be illuminating: as an intrusive method, the doctor makes an incision into the scalp, thereby placing as many units as desired around the head and into these cuts. Throughout the procedure, the surgeon makes holes all around the bald spots; but don’t be alarmed! This is part of the deal.


Although a rather complicated treatment, the results can be quite satisfying. However, one might be concerned about the obvious scar(s) left after the procedure. Regardless of the ever-growing discussions revolving around this subject, something is for sure: scars are a part of FUT and those who wish for a better-looking scalp and rejuvenating what is above it is a second priority to them might want to consider other methods and techniques before plunging into this procedure. It would be safe to say that the issue of scarring is the main problem of FUT method and what leads people toward other more aesthetically-accurate types of treatment.

In case scars aren’t a big deal for you, you could focus on the many advantages of FUT. First, the major benefit of this method is that the hair transplanted via FUT is quite strong. Since the extracted hair is received from healthy parts of a patient’s scalp, you wouldn’t have much to worry about. Most probably, the resultant hair from the procedure would turn out to be of a fine quality.

Furthermore, this method provides the surgeon with the opportunity to transplant more grafts during every session. As a result, the treatment period would not be much prolonged as to interfere with other affairs of a patient’s life.

Additionally, the mere fact that a considerably larger number of grafts are used compensates for the loss of hair which is natural during the period of time following a FUT procedure.   What’s more is that this kind of procedure minimizes the probability of “scalp trauma”, meaning that since FUT is a treatment that tends to help the hair grow from normal skin, the chances of inflicting damage to the scalp would be reduced to a bare minimum.

To conclude, it could be deduced that FUT Hair Transplant is a procedure dedicated to the cause of hair transplantation with lots of plus points and a few shortcomings; however, it would always be wise to consider all your options before making a decision that can potentially change your looks drastically.
