Surgical hair transplant techniques
All hair transplant surgeries have the same logic. A surgeon extracts the hair follicles from the back of your head and transplants them to the recipient area where baldness is shown. However, these methods can differ from each other in terms of techniques are used to extract hair follicles from the back of the head or used to transplant extracted hair follicles to the recipient area.
Follicular Unit Transplantation – FUT: This method is the oldest method that used in hair transplantation. In this method, a surgeon will cut your back of your scalp and remove the healthy hair follicles. After that, the surgeon will transplant each hair follicle to the recipient area.
Follicular Unit Extraction – FUE: This method is the most popular method used in hair transplant. In this method, a surgeon will extract hair follicles from the back individually and transplant them to the recipient area. This method leaves fewer scars compared to the FUT method.
Direct Hair Implementation – DHI: This method is known as the most technological method used in hair transplant because a surgeon uses a pen-like device to transplant hair follicles. This device opens channels and plants the hair follicles into these channels and it performs all procedures by itself. On the other hand, a surgeon must open each channel and plant hair follicles manually.
