Follicular unit transplantation is also known as strip harvesting. Follicular unit refers to hair follicle and surrounding tissue. Each unit can contain 1-4 hairs and exit scalp from a single point. In FUT, a strip of skin is taken from the back of scalp by the surgeon and the two edges are sutured. Under the microscope, dissection of follicular units is done from the strip of scalp. These follicular units are then implanted in the balding area after making slits.Book Appointment

The major disadvantage of this technique is that there is a visible linear scar on the donor area which can affect the aesthetics of the donor area.
There is no visible scarring in case of FUE technique when done by an experienced surgeon.
As there are no scars in the donor area, it is possible to keep any hair style or change hairstyle whenever suited
FUE technique allows use of beard and body hair which is otherwise not possible with FUT technique

There is quicker recovery and less down time compared to FUT technique
