Excellent service from start to finish - extremely fast. I was undecided about going for the hair replacement system route but took the plunge ready for my graduation. From the consultation (free) through to the fitting they were very informative and made sure I was happy at every step before proceeding. Upon completion you're provided with products for taking care of your hair system which is a great help. In regards to the system itself, its hard to believe they can look so good & real. Those I've shown and told can't believe it isn't my own hair. It's helped immensely with confidence - thank you! Looking forward to going back.

What is the FUT Procedure?

Grow your own hair with surgical hair restoration

In order to determine your candidacy for FUT**, a physician needs to examine your hair. If you’re a good candidate for this type of outpatient surgery, your procedure will be scheduled with a room reservation fee. A physician will review the process with you, step-by-step, and answer any questions you have.

The FUT procedure involves the physician numbing the scalp, then extracting a strip of tissue containing multiple follicular units from the back and/or sides of your head. Next, the strip of tissue is dissected into individual units of 1-4 hairs by specially-trained technicians, under the supervision of a physician, for transplantation to your thinning areas.

Drawing on their skill, artistry and training, the physician creates small incisions in your scalp where you want more hair. These incisions are called recipient sites and they’re carefully chosen to give you optimal results. The individual follicular units are placed into the recipient sites in the same direction and growth pattern of your hair to ensure seamless blending. In addition, follicular units containing 1-2 hairs are placed in the front, toward your hairline, while the units with 3-4 hairs are placed on the top of your head and at the crown so you have a natural-looking pattern of density and thickness.

FUT can often be completed in less time than other surgical hair restoration techniques depending on the number of grafts you need or want. This procedure also offers the ability to harvest a larger number of grafts, which can give you more coverage.

Benefits of a Fut Hair Transplant

A follicular unit transplant only takes one day to complete because is an outpatient procedure.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) offers:

  • Permanent, natural-looking results
  • Maximum coverage
  • Suitability for all hair types
  • High success rates
  • Minimal Maintenance

Only a medical professional can diagnose the type of hair loss you have, and that’s an important consideration in determining your candidacy. Typically, men experiencing genetic hair loss make the best candidates for FUT, but the procedure may also work for women. It’s also critical to have your hair loss examined by a physician to ensure you have enough healthy donor hair actively growing on the back and the sides of your head for a successful procedure. Often, men are better candidates than women for FUT because of their predictable pattern of hair loss. If you’re between stages I-IV on the Hamilton-Norwood Scale of men’s hair loss, you’re likely a good candidate for FUT. Schedule your consultation today to determine your candidacy.

FUT is a one-day outpatient procedure, meaning you’ll go home the same day as your surgery. Typically, your FUT procedure would take between 3-8 hours, depending on the number of grafts you want or need. Many patients return to work or their everyday activities after 1-2 days, with minimal restrictions. Some redness and minor swelling may occur right after the procedure, but will subside within a few days to a week.

You’ll consult with your physician prior to your FUT surgery to answer any questions you may have and review your expectations. Photos will be taken and the physician may use a surgical pen to mark your scalp.

After your surgery, the physician will examine your results and provide post-operative instructions. Pain medication is available based on your personal level of comfort. Immediately after surgery, your scalp may be slightly red or swollen, but that will diminish in a matter of days. You’ll likely have some scabbing as your skin heals, like you would with any other minor cut, and you may experience some itching. For the vast majority of FUT patients, scarring is minimal and easily covered by the hair growing above and around the scar.

In 3-4 months, you can expect to see your newly transplanted hair starting to grow, based on the normal hair growth cycle. You can expect full results 9-12 months after your surgery.
