FUT is an old process of hair transplants. I did this hair transplant when FUE was not available. Few hair transplant surgeons still do this hair transplant in India. FUT Hair transplant cost is much cheaper than FUE hair transplant in India. Patients are unaware of FUT technique. FUT is extremely painful. FUT Clinics use Terms like terms like No Scar, Damage of grafts in FUE, Trichophytic Closure, etc. These are used to misguide patients. The worst is they tell to combine FUT with FUE to convince.
Nobody should get painful lifetime scar. Most of the patients are told that there are no scar and trichophytic closure will be done.But most of the patient with trichophytic closure I have seen still has bad and widened scar. Its not that hair Don’t grow with FUT but in the world of minimally invasive why such invasive and Brutal Procedure is required. All surgeries are No stitch now then why surgery 20 stitches is promoted.
Its also a misnomer which FUT clinics say about graft damage in FUE.Infact FUE is a procedure where there is no graft damage if DOCTOR is ready to spend time on surgery. FUE Grafts will either come out and be used in transplant. If they are transacted the root will remain in the scalp and will grow back. So either it will come out or will grow back in scalp. Doctors doing extraction by there own hands will never damage grafts beyond permissible limits. Also imagine 20-25 stitches on the scalp with all blood vessels and nerves cut down till bone in FUT vs Small needle pricks in the skin only which heals overnight.
Patients looking for Best hair transplant procedure should always visit both clinics which do FUE and FUT. Visiting only one Doctor will not let you make the right decision. 99% of clinics worldwide have accepted FUE. At the monaris hair clinic, we stopped FUT completely. We support a painless FUE hair transplant procedure.
