What are the methods for hair transplant?
- Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
During the surgery, around 6 to 10-inch strips of skin are removed from the back of the scalp. After that, the tiny grafts are divided into 500 to 2000. After that from the strip, the hair follicles are removed and then transplanted to the bald area.
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
During FUE, the hair follicles are extracted one by one with a small punch. After that, the grafts are transplanted into the balding area. It is essential to place the grafts in a zigzag manner which results in regrowth of hair in the balding area and then the hair growth will look natural.
