FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), or Strip Surgery, can be an alternative to MicroFUE. It is an out-patient surgical operation that takes hair from the back of the head and transplant it to areas of hair loss on the scalp. It is done by cutting a linear strip of tissue from the back of the head, carefully isolating individual hair follicular units, and then transplanting them to the desired recipient areas. At NE Hair, we generally recommend ARTAS or MicroFUE, but in some cases FUT is preferred. FUT can also be used to correct surgeries done by other centers that resulted in visible scarring, also known as revision surgeries.
