Understanding Hair Loss

Many individuals experience hair loss, which is a prevalent issue. According to the American Hair Loss Association, nearly 2 in 3 men experience hair loss by the age of 35, and almost 9 in 10 men have noticeable hair thinning by the age of 50. Additionally, 40% of women face visible hair loss by the age of 40.

Aging, genetics, and hormones can cause hair loss. It’s important to acknowledge that this situation has a significant emotional and psychological impact. Finding the right solution is crucial to enhance your quality of life.

FUT Method vs. FUE Method

Follicular Unit Transplantation is a specific technique that removes a narrow strip of scalp containing healthy hair follicles to be transplanted to bald areas.. The harvested follicular units are then meticulously dissected under a microscope and transplanted into the recipient area. This procedure allows for a higher graft yield in a single session, making it suitable for individuals with advanced hair loss.

Benefits of FUT:

Follicular Unit Excision is a modern approach to hair transplantation. The method used to extract hair follicles from the donor area involves the use of a micro-punch, which directly removes individual follicular units. This method minimizes scarring and eliminates the need for stitches. FUE is particularly popular among those who prefer shorter hairstyles due to its minimal scarring.
