About FUT Hair Transplant
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) is a hair restoration technique also known as the strip procedure. It is when a patient’s hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units.
It is a traditional and reliable suture method for transplanting your own hair. The Beyond Med Centre FUT Hair Transplant method has undeniable advantages in the restoration of significant degrees of baldness. The strip method allows you to transplant up to 12,000 hair follicles (approximately 5,000 grafts) in 5-6 hours. This is done without reducing the density of hair in the occipital donor area,
The Beyond Med Centre FUT Hair Transplant method is preferred by men with an established image. Usually men who are not ready to radically change their hairstyle and shave bald.
Hair transplantation with the FUT method is ideal for women because it does not require shaving of the back of your neck.
