FUT vs. FUE hair transplant
This treatment can be used for head, beard and eyebrow. FUT and FUE both involve transplanting individual hair follicles. During FUT surgery, a surgeon cuts a strip of skin from the back or side of your scalp and then extracts the hair follicles.
In FUE surgery, your surgeon will remove individual hair follicles directly from your scalp, rather than first taking a strip of scalp skin. (minimally invasive)
PHOTOS BEFORE AND AFTER
Here’s what your will likely look like:
The surgeon will re-draw your hairline, mark the area of hair extraction, and take photographs for your medical record. Local anaesthesia will be applied to your scalp to numb it.
The hair at the donor site, where your hair is removed from, will be trimmed to about two millimeters.
The surgeon will cut out the strip of skin with the hair follicles that will be used as a graft.
You’ll stay awake during the surgery.
A technician will remove individual hair follicles to prepare them for transplantation.
The hair follicles will then be inserted into the balding parts of your scalp.
An antibiotic and bandages will be applied to your scalp.

Cost of Hair Transplant Surgery:
