Blade Hair Transplant (Strip Technique/ FUT)
The operation is by cutting head skin by 10 to 20 cm-horizontal-long and 1 to 4 cm vertical-wide into a strip. The strip will then be cut into each separated graft for transplanting. The remaining wound will be extremely dragged and braced for surgical suture as other major abdominal surgeries.
Bladeless Hair Transplant (Follicular Unit Extraction/ FUE)
The operation is by extracting graft with small device and minimally invasive technique. The graft will be instantly ready for transplant. The small needle-size wound will be self-healed without suture or brace as when you undergo a regular blood collection.
Result comparison between FUE and FUT
Both techniques require professional staff and the experience of the doctor. When the processes of each technique are considered;
FUT, head skin must be bladed and wait until staffs finish classifying wasted skin and graft by cutiing
FUE, the extracted instant ready graft will be temperature controlled in the cabinet. By this process, graft will be fresh and in well quality resulting better growth rate. However, the performing doctor must be well skilled and experienced.
The doctor who can reliably compare these two techniques must be capable of performing both techniques also. Doctor who can perform only one technique might give out negative opinion on the other technique he/ she cannot perform by his/ her limited ability.
- Mediren Clinic, we are capable of performing both techniques,
- FUE and FUT
- However, the experience of patients and our staff team agree that
- FUE is the good technique, offering the excellent result. Patient’s pain is lesser than FUT obviously.
“I used to undergo FUT couple years ago in another clinic. Later, I had got a chance to undergo an additional hair transplant with Mediren Clinic by Bladeless FUE. I could absolutely feel the difference in term of pain. FUT, I felt painful of my wound for weeks. But FUE, I can only feel bit pain, less than 10% of the previous FUT. If I could travel back in time, I would have also selected FUE for my first hair transplant.”
Is FUE considered a surgery?
FUE is a type of Medical Procedures. The importance is that FUE is Bladeless. Instead, extraction as minimal invasive degree as shallow needle-size tip different from FUT which requires cutting head skin into a strip of 10 to 20 cms.
“You are considering FUE a surgery or not, I do not care. I only care that no one will lay a blade and cut my head skin into a big strip as FUT., I am frightened.”
Does FUE require a wide area of shaving?
FUE experts know that FUE does not require a wide area of shaving in every case. It depends on the patient will and graft amount properness.
- Mediren Clinic, we also offer Non-Shaved FUE.
- In addition, a selection of hair style variety can be chosen under the medical principle properness.
What is the difference between FUE and FUT in term of wound?
The wound above the neck of FUE is seen as small as the size of needle tip. The color is quite similar to the regular head skin. While FUT leaves an extremely remarkable long wound strip. For comparison, you can imagine how different the wounds between needle-size tip from intravenous therapy and a long strip from major abdominal surgery.
The knowledge of FUE considers spread small wounds as an advantage technique for concordant and natural look.
Does FUE require multiple session?
This depends on who performs. If under inexperienced one, no matter which technique, multiple session is surely required.
Any institutes requiring multiple session on FUE are obviously reflexing their FUE efficiency.
- Mediren Clinic, we are capable of performing Mega Session FUE in one single day (2,500 to 3,000 grafts).
Are there any possibilities to extract flaw hair root especially curly hair type by FUE?
This depends on who performs. If under inexperienced one, there are surely.
Any institutes claiming of flaw hair root possibility on curly hair type FUE obviously reflexing their FUE efficiency.
While FUT generates a damage possibility on the entire level of hair in under-average control environment. FUT also requires many staffs to classify grafts causing difficulty in controlling quality on each graft.
- Mediren Clinic, we are confident. We are capable of performing FUE in every case inclusive of curly hair type with perfect and well-conditioned grafts as following;
- **THE RESULT IS VARIED IN EACH INDIVIDUAL PERSON/ SKIN CONDITION.**
Is it correct that FUE uses hair graft from the “Not Healthy” Donor Area?
This information is wrong. The doctors able to perform FUE know that the donor area of FUE is from the Healthy Zone as FUT. The only difference on FUE is no cutting of head skin strip. This way, FUE generates a better result as the process is concise and controlled.
- FUE is the good technique. However, it requires skilled and high-experienced doctor.
