FUT Hair Transplant Treatment


This is one of the Old Technique for the Hair Transplant. The Strip method of hair transplantation is another effective method used in hospitals for growing hair, also known as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). It is not as bad as other clinics depict it to be. In this method of transplantation, a streak of skin is removed from the main source (where the hair is dominant) and then the hair grafts are separated from it and transplanted on the area where the individual wants the hair to grow.
The area from where the hair was originally extracted is stitched with the help of sutures. This takes a couple of weeks to heal. After two weeks or so the cut is entirely healed, the procedure leaves a scar which will only be visible when an individual completely plans to get his head shaved.


During FUT procedure, the healthiest section of follicles in the safe Donor area (the sides and backside of the scalp) are mapped out.

  • The focal area from which the grafts of hair must be obtained is first anaesthetized, and then the scalp is cut with a blade to obtain a piece of skin containing the grafts.
  • The area is simultaneously stitched with the help of sutures.
  • Once the follicular unit is obtained then the next step is to obtain the intact follicular grafts/units.
  • The intact follicular grafts/units then are separated with the help of fiber optic microscopes so that they don’t come in direct contact with heat which is liable to harm the follicles.
  • Once that is done, these hair follicles are stored in a special salt solution at an optimum temperature so that they may be placed on the area that requires the hair transplantation.
  • Areas which require hair transplantation are then marked by the doctor to carry out the final step.
  • In the end the follicles are placed on the target areas. Hairs are finally grafted with forceps by a surgeon who is an expert in the field of hair transplantation.
Donor Area

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) involves the removal of a thin sliver of tissue (strip incision) from the donor area, which may potentially lead to scarring. With the advent of time, numerous techniques including tumescent anesthesia, undermining, buried sutures, absorbable sutures, staples and trichophytic closures have been developed to minimize the scarring at the donor area during the strip excision procedure. At Vinoda Hair Transplant Centre, we believe that minimizing these scars is an important and critical part of a successful FUT procedure. Strip incision allows our surgeons to efficiently complete large hair transplant sessions while minimizing the risk of follicle damage. Our surgeons are experts at performing the FUT procedure in a manner that it results in only a fine donor scar, which allows patients to keep their hair comparatively shorter after the procedure. This also increases the amount of hair that can be harvested in follow-up procedures.

Furthermore, donor incision healing is dependent on 4 aspects:

Slivering is the first and foremost step of the graft dissection procedure. It includes division of a long donor strip into smaller sections (2-2.5 mm in width).

  • Placement of incision at the right location
  • Using accurate donor strip dimension
  • Strip removal without damaging the tissue
  • Properly closing the incision with surgical techniques

After Surgery

While our surgeons are experts at performing the FUT procedure and delivering desirable results to patients, it is important for patients to take some post-surgery precautions to ensure speedy recovery:

    Day of FUT

  • We discharge our patients with a head bandage after the procedure. We advise them not to remove it before going to bed.
  • While sleeping, keep your head elevated. In case the donor area oozes, place a towel under your head.
  • In case of bleeding, use a sterile gauze to apply continuous and steady pressure on the bleeding area.
precautions to ensure speedy recovery:

    A Day after FUT

  • Remove the head bandage carefully before taking a shower the next day.
  • Take 3 showers and gently shampoo the scalp, in the morning, noon and night respectively. Wash your hair gently to ensure the scalp is free of blood or crust. After 2-3 days, shower twice on a daily basis.
  • In case of temporary swelling, use cold compression on forehead, 2 to 3 times a day, for almost 15 minutes.
