Many people suffer from baldness and struggle to look for options available in the market to address this issue that affects their self-esteem. Dr Harman Sidhu faces many questions on a daily basis for hair transplant in Chandigarh. There are many temporary solutions, but the most permanent remains hair transplantation. The most common types of hair transplant are FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant). The main difference between the two techniques as explained by Dr Harman Sidhu of Athena Hair Now Clinic at Chandigarh, lies in the way the follicle units are extracted.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
This technique involves the extraction of hair on a patient with a small, circular instrument. Afterwards the extracted hair is harvested and re-inserted back into recipient sites, allowing it to grow completely naturally. Benefits of the FUE method include: no scarring, faster recovery time and no cuts or stiches. FUE is currently the most recommended hair transplant procedure with better results. Dr Harman Sidhu at Athena Hair Now Clinic Chandigarh performs this procedure on all hair transplant patients.
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
The FUT method is considered more invasive, where a strip of scalp is cut out from the back of the head and is then dissected into individual grafts. They are then transplanted on areas, which do not include as much hair. This complicated technique involves cutting a strip of tissue from the scalp and leaves a large scar afterwards, although the results are very promising. This procedure is not recommended as it causes scar, has a longer healing time and results are not usually the best. Also the procedure is very time consuming.
FUE and FUT are very different forms of treatment and while some patients find their names misleadingly similar, it is important to fully understand what each technique consists of. In summarising the procedures, Dr Harman Sidhu specifies that FUE is the preferred option. When the hair transplant industry started, it started with FUT technique. But later on the industry realized that FUT technique causes scarring, reduces the available hair to transplant (as a whole trip is taken out at once) and is also very time consuming. FUE on the other hand has all the benefits: recovery time is much faster (you can drive home the same day after the surgery), doesn’t reduce the donor area (no strip harvesting) and results are better as follicles are easily transplanted.
