Types of Hair transplant:
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT)
Strips of tissues are removed from the donor area of the scalp of the person, these strips are cut into small follicular units by the doctor. The doctor then makes tiny cuts on the scalp to place these grafts, hence hair is transferred from the region where the growth of hair is adequate that is the donor area to the region where the growth of hair is less or where there is no growth of hair at all that becomes recipient area.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE)
More people opt for follicular unit extraction because of an obvious reason that this method of hair transplant leaves fewer scars on the scalp if it is compared to follicular unit transplantation. Under this method, the hair follicles that are extracted from the donor area of the patient are transferred to the recipient area with the help of a very small surgical needle. Basically, the donor area from where the hair follicles are extracted is the back of the neck of the person. Because of this reason people opt for follicular unit extraction more in comparison to follicular unit transplantation.
