FUT Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
The FUT hair transplant is a one day outpatient procedure performed under local anaesthetic at our Harley Street clinic in London. Genetically strong hairs immune to male pattern baldness are relocated from the back of the head to your new recipient area where they will continually grow.
FUT stands for Follicular Unit Transplant, where a thin strip of tissue containing the follicles is carefully excised from your safe zone donor region. This surgical method uses an advanced suturing technique called the Trichophytic closure, which allows hairs to grow directly through the incision line once healed.
Once the strip tissue is excised, the surgical team carefully dissect and prepare the grafts before implanting them into your recipient area one by one.
Full results are seen at 6-12 months with continued maturation up to 18 moths post op.
At our Harley Street clinic in London we can perform the FUT technique multiple times for candidates with suitable scalp laxity, as we excise and refashion the previous linear scar.
