Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure, mostly followed by the process of detaching grafts/follicles from the back and sides of the head, which is more resistant to Androgen hormone and implanting the same in the areas of lesser growth of hair or baldness. There are two methods to remove the grafts, i.e., Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
Grafts holding a small cluster of hairs are removed from the donor area of hair (the fringe of hair around your head) in a strip in this procedure. The strip is then sent to the cutting room where under the higher magnifications of microscopes, grafts are cleaned and separated. Therefore, grafts are placed into the slits made in the bald area. These are naturally arising follicular units, which, if transplanted well, will replicate a natural growth in the bald area of the scalp.
Dr Suneet Soni, founder of the Medispa Laser, Cosmetic & Hair Transplant Centre, Jaipur, New Delhi (India) says that FUT is a Gold standard technique of hair transplant and if performed well by the skilled hands, supported by trained technicians and aided with the innovative and advanced equipment works, can cover a higher bald area in a single sitting without damaging any graft numbers. Dr Suneet Soni has proven the power of his skills by giving a high-density hair to a number of fully bald patients. He further states that FUT is a painless and scarless technique. After harvesting the strip, the opened area is closed with the advanced Trichophytic closure, which leaves no chances for the visibility of scars.
The FUT hair restoration is the widely accepted technique, which is most suitable for covering the higher grade of Norwood class and also suitable for offering the high-density hair transplants on the patient’s scalp.
In the context of cost, the cost of hair transplant for the FUT procedure weighs less as compared to the FUE hair transplant that is also counted as the genuine option among the patients with the possibility of a higher number of grafts implantation. The hair transplant in India is coming into the picture as the modest cost option and the facilities that are offered by the recognised and the best hair transplant clinics in India is matched with the American standard of facilities and care. The cost of hair transplant in Jaipur (Rajasthan) and the capital New Delhi, India generally falls under the budget cost, which is just one-fourth to the cost of the USA, UK and Europe makes a turn on for the patient across the globe.
Hair transplant surgery aims to achieve a result that is as natural as possible. In order to do this, however, we need more than the most up to date techniques.
