FUT Hair Transplant

What is the difference between FUE Hair Transplant and FUT Hair Transplant?

The FUT technique, which consists of the initials of the English Follicular Unit Transplantation words, is a technique that has been used for 30 years. Thanks to the rapid advances in technology in hair transplantation all over the world, it has been replaced by the FUE technique. However, FUT Technique is still used in some cases.

How is the FUT technique applied?

The donor area where the hair follicles will be taken is numbed with local anesthesia.

Generally, the donor area selected from the nape area, which has high resistance to hair loss, is removed by cutting in a strip form. The size of the area to be cut varies according to the size of the hair loss.

The hair follicles on the scalp taken from the donor area are separated and cleaned and prepared for transplantation.

Aesthetic stitches are applied to the donor area and closed. A horizontal suture scar remains in the area whose healing is completed within 20 days or a month.

The area to be transplanted is anesthetized with local anesthesia. Channels are opened as many as the number of grafts to be planted in this area.

The grafts are placed one by one in the previously opened needle head-sized channels in the area to be implanted.

Advantages of FUT Technique

Fut method is faster than other methods. Because grafts are not collected one by one

Hair transplantation process can be performed without shaving the patients’ hair.

It is suitable for collecting much more grafts in a short time.

It is inexpensive compared to other methods because of its low cost.

Disadvantages of FUT Technique

Suture scar remains after the operation.

The healing time is a little longer.

Numbness may occur in the area where the hair follicle is taken.

The number of hair follicles collected is more than the growing hair follicle. For example, if 100 hair follicles are transplanted in the FUE technique, between 100-110 hairs grow, whereas in the FUT method, 70-80 hairs grow from 100 hair follicles.

Postoperative pain occurs due to stitching.

According to the Fue Technique and What are the Differences?

While 30-50 ml of bleeding occurs in the FUE technique, 300-500 ml of bleeding occurs in the FUT technique.

In FUE technique, hair follicles are taken one by one with 0.6-1.3 mm diameter tools, while in FUT technique, a rectangular piece of skin is cut from the scalp.

While 160 hair follicles can be transplanted per square centimeter in the FUE technique, this number is 40-60 in the FUT technique.

In the FUE technique, after the hair follicles are removed, transplantation is started without waiting. In the FUT technique, there is a waiting time of up to 3 hours.

In the FUE technique, there is a 3-4 day rest period after the operation, while the recovery period in the FUT technique varies between 20 days and 1 month.

In the FUE technique, the patient does not have swelling in the eyes after the operation, it can be seen in the FUT technique.

In the FUE technique, the hair is transplanted at an angle of 45 degrees, while in the FUT technique, it is transplanted at a 90 degree angle. For this reason, hair transplanted with the FUE technique looks more natural.

While dressing is not required after the operation in the FUE technique, it is required in the FUT technique.

While ingrown hair is rarely seen in FUE technique, it is frequently seen in FUT technique.

While the pricing is determined according to the number of grafts to be implanted in the FUE technique, the fact that the number of grafts to be implanted in the FUT technique does not affect the price.

While a certain rate of hair loss occurs after hair transplantation in the FUE technique, most of the hair transplanted in the FUT technique is shed.

Since there is no surgical intervention in the FUE technique, infection is very rare, and the risk of infection is higher in the FUT technique.

I have had a very good experience with my operation. Despite the very late arrival of my flight they were there to meet me at the airport. The hotel was first class.
All the staff were extremely friendly and explained things to me at every stage. After the initial anaesthetic injections, the whole thing was painless. I am looking forward to seeing my new head of hair!
The price included included everything except the follow up shampoo and vitamins.

Mon expérience s’est bien passé, l’hôtel est tres bien , l’équipe de la clinique à l’écoute.
Je suis content de mon expérience . J’ai hâte de voir la repousse . Ce qui m’a réconforter c’est qu’ils nous donnent un certificat qui explique que si ça ne va pas au niveau de la repousse Si nous ne somme pas satisfait , ils nous reprennent en charge assez vite .

istavita Hair Clinic and his staff are far superior than any doctors in the states. The hospital are new, modern and spotlessly clean. From the moment I arrived at the hospital the day of the procedure I had a team of 6 to 8 medical professionals taking care of my every need and making me feel as comfortable as possible at every stage of the process. If you’re planning to have a hair Transplant I can’t recommend Can highly enough!

Gabriel Studer


had a great experience with istavita clinic from start to finish. Understandably with a treatment such as this, I did a lot of research & compared a number of different clinics & physicians. My contact for istavita was a guy who answered my many questions quickly & with a great deal of patience at different times of the day. He was clear as to what to expect which lived up to what happened.
