What is the difference between FUE vs FUT?

Follicular Unit extraction (FUE) is performed by taking single hair follicles out of a donor area, commonly the back and sides of the head and transplanting them into the balding area. This technique is best for those who wear their hair short and are concerned about a linear scar in the back of the head. Tiny round 1 mm scars where the hair is harvested often heal very well.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is performed by taking a strip of hair from the back of the head and with the help of multiple technicians the hair is slivered down into individual follicles on a table near the patient. Once the follicles are prepared, they are transplanted into the area needing hair. This technique is best for large volumes of hair transplantation as it allows multiple people to prepare the hair follicles at one time and a larger number of follicles are harvested.


Hair growth can be immediate for some of the follicles but most patients start to see the growth they wanted after 6 months

There are two common techniques used for hair transplantation, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant). FUE is done by taking individual hair follicles one at a time and transferring them to the recipient site.  FUT, or strip method, is done by harvesting a strip of hair bearing skin from the back of the head and cutting the individual follicles using a microscope.

Costs can vary greatly between patients due to hair density and patient goals varying so much. As such, we recommend you talk with Dr. Wallin and mention you stylist/barber’s name for a free consultation. For patients who live far away from our clinic they can obtain a quite by emailing pictures to consults@dbpsoasis.com.
