Essentially there are only 2 techniques of hair transplant, the most popular today being FUE.
FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction whereby at our center we use the Safe Scribe FUE system of James Harris with blunt 0.75-0.85 mm size micropunches for harvesting. The technique differs from FUT (strip method) only in the harvesting technique. Plantation is done in a similar fashion in both techniques.
FUT(Strip method)- A strip of skin containing hair follicles is cut out from the back of the head stretching from one ear to the other. This procedure takes around 40 minutes and the strip is handed over to the technical staff who take over the rest of the procedure. The procedure after the strip has been harvested entails- slivering, graft cutting, slit making and then plantation. The plantation remains the same as in FUE.
