2. What is the FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) Method?

The surgeon performs a FUT operation by taking a strip of skin and hair from one part of your scalp. They divide up the removed strip into sections and transplant them into areas of hair loss. Although this strip method is tried and tested it has some major disadvantages. First of all the surgery leaves an unsightly scar on the part of the scalp where the hair is removed. This scar can eventually be concealed by hair growth. Secondly, a FUT procedure needs to be followed by a long period of aftercare to avoid infection and other health issues.
