FUT Hair Restoration Technique
What is a FUT hair transplant?
FUT, or follicular unit transplantation is a highly effective Hair Transplant procedure performed by Dr. Mark Korman and Dr. Philip Solomon, at our Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic. The surgery reverses the effects of hair thinning and loss. It can be done on a wide range of people. FUT hair transplant surgery involves removing a strip of hair from the back or sides of the patient’s scalp before grafting it into the affected area. This enables the transplantation of thousands of hair follicles in just one surgery session. After a few weeks, the transplanted hair follicles fall out, and new ones grow in their places, stimulated by the process. Common areas to be treated include the hairlines, temples, and crown of the head. It is essential for a qualified, experienced surgeon to carry out the procedure in order for it to achieve the desired results.
How does FUT hair transplant work?
At Follicle HT in Toronto, Ontario, FUT hair transplant surgery involves carefully extracting thousands of hair follicles from an area of the head with healthy hair growth. This is done by removing a strip of skin with the follicles on and then grafting the follicles into the areas affected by hair loss or balding. Typically, the strips of skin are taken from the sides or back of the head or the nape of the neck. This is all done under local anesthesia, so the patient does not experience any discomfort. The FUT hair transplant stimulates new hair to grow in the treated areas, which starts to appear after just a few weeks.
Advantages of FUT hair transplant
There are several FUT hair transplant pros and cons, as you would expect with any surgical procedure. Good points include less chance of scarring due to the minimally invasive procedures involved. The surgery normally involves minimal pain and discomfort, with relatively rapid recovery times. Results can be life-changing, with the hair that grows in looking thicker and more lustrous than before. This is a big confidence booster for many who have felt self-conscious and anxious about their thinning hair or baldness. Dr. Mark Korman and Dr. Philip Solomon will perform several follow-up appointments after the surgery to monitor recovery and sort out any problems that may arise.
Who is a good candidate for FUT hair transplant?
The best FUT hair transplant candidates generally are those who have been experiencing hair loss or thinning on the crown of their head and areas around the hairline and top of the head. They should have enough healthy donor hair elsewhere to be transplanted effectively. Good candidates must be willing and able to follow the recommended pre-and post-surgery care procedures and look after their newly transplanted hair correctly over a longer period of time. The new hairs can be delicate at first and prone to damage. The process works well for people seeking both FUT hair transplant long hair solutions and shorter hairstyle options.
