FUE & FUT
At Capital, we offer the two most popular and effective methods of hair transplantation – FUE & FUT. It should be noted that FUT and FUE are not competing forms of hair transplantation but actually complimentary methods. During your consultation, we will assess which method you are most suited for and what will deliver the best, most natural-looking results.
What is FUE & FUT?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a more advanced method of hair transplant. method of obtaining donor hair for transplantation. Instead of removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from the donor area with FUT, the hair is individually removed using a special punch tool ranging in diameter from 0.06-0.09mm. This method leaves no scar tissue and does make recovery quicker.
Hair is then meticulously implanted back into the balding area in a naturally occurring gradient to give the most natural look. Due to the inherent nature of the grafts being implanted, it does take more time to perform than FUT.
Both methods are performed using advanced microscopes and under local anaesthetic to minimise post-procedure recovery.
Although both methods are minimally invasive we would suggest you take a minimum of 3 days off after your procedure to allow time for the grafts to settle.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is an older technique, which involves taking a strip of hair-bearing skin from the donor area, usually at the back of the head. Specialist technicians are then tasked with the skill of dissecting the strip to harvest the strongest and most dense hair follicles.
Our highly skilled surgeons ensure the donor area is seamlessly sutured to leave a thin scar, which even a hairdresser would struggle to detect. Once this has been carried out, our surgeon will carefully reconstruct your new hairline giving you a natural and denser look.
