Follicular Unit Extraction Verses Follicular Unit Transplantation
FUT or follicular Unit Transplantation is referred as “Strip” surgery procedure.FUT is old technique where surgeon removes strip by linear scar from the donor area or back of scalp. This harvested strip is dissected under stereo microscopes into very thin slivers and from these slivers, single follicles are dissected and these grafts or follicles then transplanted to the bald or recipient area. The linear incision is stitched with sutures and donor area is closed in such a way that after few months ,hair regrow from this area and this method of stitches is called Tricophytic Closure. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) has linear scar in the donor area before the introduction of Tricophytic Closure technique in the recent years. Though this donor area scar is negligible but still sometimes it is noticeable. Strip procedure disrupts and distorts the direction of the hair in the vicinity of the scar.There are very few doctors who perform Fue hair transplant in Pakistan every day but Dr.Ahmad Chaudhry is an exception.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure's major advantages
FUE is a new technique and most of the hair restoration surgeons reluctant to introduce into their practices. Best centers always introduce new and latest state of the art techniques in the their clinics so that patient can get maximum benefits from this revolutionary technique.

Healing and Recovery time after FUE
These is less recovery time due to scarless nature of procedure. Healing is rapid and quick in just 24-48 hours.
More grafts availability from donor area
FUE procedure is not limited to specific donor area as in strip procedure. The availability of safe donor area is extended and there are more follicles for transplantation in the recipient area.FUE surgeons harvest follicles from nape of neck and body as well and throughout the “Permanent Zone”
FUE hair doctor do himself work
The beauty of Follicular Unit Extraction is that surgeon himself removes the follicles from the donor area instead of hair technicians .Thus delicate work of FUE is done by the educated and proficient person for hair restoration. FUE grafts survival rate is more as compared to FUT/Strip method because these grafts are transplanted rapidly and their separation does not require too much time. FUE is performed by experienced surgeon ,transection is low and survival rate is high. FUE hair restoration offers natural looking hairline and aesthetically much superior result then strip hair loss surgery.
FUE Doctor Selection
It is not only a procedure rather it is an art and selection of the surgeon is very much important. FUE procedure is more difficult as every hair restoration surgeon can’t perform it as it is time consuming procedure than strip. It requires more skill and mastery and plenty of practice and experience. That’s why most of the surgeons are reluctant to adopt this innovative and revolutionary technique as they are not willing to spend too much time on the procedure. Some surgeons offer FUE procedure on the demand of patients but they don’t have proper training and skills in this procedure and not proficient. It is recommended to those patients to find FUE surgeon who exclusively do FUE hair transplant in Pakistan and truly believe superiority of FUE procedure over FUT/Strip hair surgery method.
