5 Ways Follicular Unit Transplantation Revolutionized the Hair Transplant Game

You don’t have to pull a “Jeff Bezos” or “Bruce Willis.”

If you don’t want to.

It’s 2018 and male pattern baldness – the root cause of 95% of male baldness – is a choice and not a genetic inevitability.

An affordable choice at that.

The leading procedure that revolutionized the hair transplant game by producing effective, affordable and practically permanent results is called Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).

Here’s why Follicular Unit Transplantation is a great solution if you’re noticing thinning hair, a widow’s peak hairline and other early signs of male pattern baldness.

FYI be proactive and act once you notice a boost in the amount of hair you shed or the rate of thinning. Unfortunately, Follicular Unit Transplantation is not a procedure that can help if you’re already completely bald.

What is Follicular Unit Transplantation?

FUT is a surgical procedure where naturally occurring hair bundles or follicular units are removed from donor regions of your scalp and transplanted to balding areas.

“Donor” regions are areas on your head where hair is resistant to hair loss and will actively grow in the bald areas it is transplanted to.

The follicular units can be harvested from the donor areas in 2 ways. One way is known as “The Strip Method” or Strip Harvesting. This method has been used for decades and is reliable and predictable for creating excellent grafts for transplant. The other way is FUE or follicular unit extraction which has opened doors to more patients looking for hair loss treatment options.

Because there is a “safe zone” in male pattern baldness the donor grafts for Follicular Unit Transplantation are removed from the sides and back of the head.

How to Know if You’re a Good Candidate for the FUT Procedure

You can’t be 100% sure you’re an eligible candidate for FUT unless you schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons.

But there are indicators that increase your chances of being a candidate for FUT hair transplant.

You’re more likely to be an eligible candidate for the FUT procedure if:

  • You’re a male or female with hair loss
  • Your pattern of baldness is genetic and following predictable patterns
  • You have enough actively growing hair on the back and sides of your head
  • Your hair loss is already affecting your appearance and confidence
  • You have realistic expectations of the procedure

As a general rule, you’re likely a good candidate for Follicular Unit Transplantation if your baldness has progressed enough to affect your appearance but not enough be at an advanced stage on the Norwood Hamilton Scale or Ludwig Hair Loss Scale.

If you think you’re an eligible candidate for FUT, here are the 5 great benefits that are linked to “The Strip Method” and why it’s considered a gold standard hair transplant procedure.

How Did FUT Hair Transplant Revolutionize the Market?

Natural Results

We can go to mars but there still isn’t a cure for male pattern baldness.

Since prevention is out of the question, the next best thing is a treatment that produces very organic results. Like you being able to go to the barber for a haircut in as little as three weeks post surgery.

Follicular Unit Transplantation results are just that. You won’t have to worry about your hair looking “fake” by any means.

Such high-quality results occur because doctors are able to maximize the number of follicles harvested during one FUT session, group the follicular units by their number of hairs per unit, and strategically place them in a natural and effective fashion.

Really Affordable

Follicular Unit Transplantation with a strip harvest will almost always cost you less than comparable treatment options.

Since you’ll be paying price per graft, you’ll only pay for what you need to be compared to one flat fee.

So that you’re aware, Chuback Medical Group partners with CareCredit, an account many of our patients use specifically for their out-of-pocket hair transplant procedures.

Power-Packed Sessions

Strip Harvesting allows your surgeon to harvest and graft a large number of follicular units in one session.

Because of this, up to 3000 hair follicles can be transplanted during FUT hair transplant surgery, almost twice the amount compared to Follicular Unit Extraction.

Another plus is that surgeons won’t have to shave your hair if you decide FUT is the best hair transplant treatment option for you, as they will for comparable treatments.

Higher Follicle Survival Rate

Keep in mind that with all hair transplant surgeries, not every hair follicle that’s transplanted will survive, and each procedure has its individual follicle survival rate.

Although FUE has proven immense success in recent years, FUT follicle survival rate is still higher.

FUT is most likely the wiser investment if your male pattern baldness is progressing quickly and depleting your donor regions with rapidity.

Results are Permanent

Grafted sections transplanted during FUT sessions are permanent, which is great news since it means your results can last a lifetime.

Just remember, hair transplant procedures are not preventative and will not stop pattern baldness from progressing so care of your non-transplanted hair is of primary importance to minimize any progression.
