Many experts suggest hair transplantation treatments as a definite solution to hair loss, baldness, or hair thinning. These treatments are usually done by taking the hair follicle from a certain part of the scalp—back of your head, and transplanting extracted hair follicles to the recipient area that in the bald part. These treatments also can be useful for the restoration of eyebrows, eyelashes, bread hair, chest hair, etc.
There are three main methods of hair transplant treatment. One of them is the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), the second is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), and the last technique is Direct Hair Implantation (DHI), and this is just like the same method with FUE.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Most hair transplant operations are performed by the FUE method these days because the price of the procedure is relatively cheap, and the FUE procedure offers a high success rate. In the FUE method, the hair is taken one by one from the back of your scalp, and extracted hair follicles are transferred to the bald areas. Since there is no surgical intervention, patients decide more easily and prefer this technique.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
Follicular unit transplant (FUT), on the other hand, is the oldest technique used in hair transplant. In this technique, a surgeon will extract your hair from the back of your head and transplant them to the recipient area. After this method, there can be a visible scar on the donor area. For this, many people prefer the FUE rather than the FUT.
Direct Hair Transplantation (DHI)
With the DHI technique, the extraction of hair follicles is done like the FUE method. However, the DHI technique differs from the FUE when the surgeon implant hair follicles in the recipient areas. The surgeon uses a pen-like device to implant hair follicles into the bald areas. This tool provides incision and implant hair follicles at the same time.
