what is the difference between FUT and FUE

The two principal methods of hair transplant are Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)/strip and Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) – also known as Follicular Unit Extraction. Both are effective hair restoration techniques, with a high success rate. So what is the difference between them? This post explains…

The main difference between FUT and FUE hair transplants is that in FUT the surgeon removes a strip of donor skin from which to extract individual follicular units to be transferred to the areas of hair loss, whereas in FUE individual follicular units are excised directly from the scalp. Which technique is most suitable for the patient depends on a range of factors.

Advantages of FUE (vs. FUT/Strip)

No linear scar in donor area

  • Important for those who wear their hair very short where the scar may become visible
  • Important for those who have a history of keloids, thickened or stretched scars

Decreased healing time in the donor area

  • The small holes that are created with FUE will heal in much a shorter period of time than the linear FUT-strip scar.

No limitations on strenuous exercise after the procedure

  • With a FUT-strip scar, strenuous exercise soon after the procedure can lead to the scar widening. The small holes created from the FUE procedure do not widen and are not affected by exercise after the procedure.

Less post-op discomfort in the donor area

  • With FUE there is essentially no discomfort after the procedure

Useful for those with a greater risk of donor scarring

  • Younger patients
  • Very muscular, athletic patients
  • Those with very tight scalps
  • Those with a history of keloid scarring or poor healing

Useful for repairing donor scars that cannot be excised

  • If a patient has previously undergone a FUT procedure and has a widened donor scar, an FUE procedure can be performed to transplant hair into the scar to help camouflage it.
