What is FUT?

FUT stands for Follicular Unit Transplantation, and it is the traditional hair transplant technology that was first developed nearly a century ago. Also called strip harvesting, this technique is often appropriate for people who have more extensive balding or thinning.

The procedure involves the surgical excision of a small section of the scalp at the back of the head, which provides thousands of healthy donor follicles to transplant into balding areas with precision. The newly placed follicles re-integrate into your scalp and begin producing healthy hair, filling balding areas or restoring a receding hairline.

The benefits of FUT

FUT has remained one of the most popular hair restoration solutions for several reasons, including:

  • FUT allows your surgeon to maximize the number of grafts transferred in a single transplant session
  • It is ideal for those who suffer from the advanced stages of hair loss and need high quantities of grafts
  • It provides maximum fullness with impressive results
  • FUT is more cost-effective and can help speed the hair transplant process

A custom-crafted, restored hairline can be yours

At Face Austin, we believe that everyone deserves to feel confident, which is why we are proud to offer artfully designed FUT hair transplants. We take the time to review photographs of you before you lost hair, and any other photos that give us insight into a custom hair restoration. We will then design a restored hairline, transplanting hair follicles in a natural pattern. You can review the design for your restoration before we begin, and you can trust our talented team to make your vision a reality.
