FUT

Follicular Unit Transplant 

1.jpg

Dr. Kenneth Sanders does the  follicular unit transplant (FUT)  if indicated and agreed upon at the time of consultation. This method allows him to implant the highest quality grafts for the best possible outcome. The  FUT method requires less donor area than a large FUE transplant. 

Hair Transplant:

Hair transplant surgery is a procedure in which hair is moved from the back and/or sides of the scalp, where the hair is permanent (donor area), to areas that are thinning or bald on the front, top, or crown of the scalp (recipient area). Once transplanted, the hair will continue to grow naturally.

How Does a Follicular Unit Transplant Work?

During an FUT procedure,  Dr. Sanders  numbs the scalp with local anesthesia. The scalp is shampooed and treated with an antibacterial agent. Dr. Sanders  then harvests the narrow strip of hair follicles from the patient in the donor area and then closes the area with sutures. This incision is immediately almost invisible and hidden by even very short hair. The harvested strip is then divided under a microscope into predetermined individual graft sizes. 

Dr. Sanders uses a very small “micro blade” to puncture the recipient area in a predetermined pattern and density, angling the cuts to create a natural hair pattern. Lastly, the grafts will be individually placed in the recipient area, where they will heal and continue to grow normally.

The size and number of the grafts and how they are placed is determined by the patient’s hair type, density and desired results. In some cases, multiple transplant procedures are needed, but they can be performed within a short interval.
