Why FUE is better than FUT ?
Well we strongly believe that
FUE is a better method compared to Strip method
1. No stitches so no post op pain and no post op stitch mark and that
allows the short hair style as well. FUT certainly will show up linear scar
if you keep your hair short and has pain and tightness until the stitches
get dissolved that takes 2-3 weeks at least
2. FUE heals faster because of its minimally invasive nature usually in 5-7
days the wounds are healed.
3. Allows early activities ( 1 week) compared to FUT which has restriction
of heavy activities for at least 3 weeks (Gym, sports, weight lift, sex,
4. FUE allows transfer of more number of hair in the same number of grafts
compared to FUT. This is because we can select follicular units with more
number of hair like 3 and 4 hair follicular units. This is not possible in
5. Better quality grafts esp. for white hair compared to Strip method this
is because there in strip method to separate the white hair from the white
dermal tissue is practically very difficult if not impossible and therefore
there is more transaction rate.
there are many more advantages of FUE method over FUT.
Since the wold is in the transitional phase from FUT to FUE and FUE is more
technically demanding, there are many older doctors who are resistant in
switching to this new technology minimally invasive method which is
certainly going to be method of future. In last 3 years world over there is
big swing from patients and doctors side to FUE method from FUT.
Well usually FUE needs shaving of the donor
area. Because some people do not want to shave their head they cannot take
regular FUE. But we have modified our techniques where we can now offer FUE
even without shaving the entire donor area. This is a variant of FUE. This
will not make it obvious to others that you have undergone such a procedure.
This procedure is much more demanding and will take longer time to perform.
We can harvest up to 1000 to 1200 grafts by this method. This procedure
therefore costs more than the regular FUE procedure.
