FUT - Donor Strip Harvesting Hair Transplantation
In Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) procedures, a strip of hair bearing tissue is removed from a donor area on the back or sides of the scalp. The donor area is then closed leaving a thin linear scar. The strip is then dissected under microscopes to separate naturally occurring follicular units.
Follicular units are tiny groupings of 1-3 hairs. These hairs grow naturally in tiny bundles. As the follicular units are prepared they are then grouped based on the number of hairs and are then precisely transplanted into tiny recipient sites prepared by Dr. Mollura. To naturally and artistically replicate your hair pattern, these units are placed according to each individuals angle and hair growth pattern.
Dr. Mollura will use single hair follicular units in the hairline and slightly larger grafts to create density behind the hairline. This technique creates completely natural and undetectable results.

Advantages of FUT Hair Transplantation
The main advantage of this method is to cover wider areas as it gives scope for obtaining a larger number of grafts in a single session.
Although this method leaves a thin scar in the donor area, by virtue of the latest advancements in the technology, this can be minimized by a technique called tricophytic closure. This method helps in minimizing the scar which is almost invisible after some time and even new hair growth is seen through it in most of the patients.
Transformational Hair Restoration
The survival rate of grafts is very important to achieve good results post hair transplantation. Dr. Mollura takes care in each and every step of the procedure to assure that your procedure achieves maximum graft survival and hair growth.
The advantages of strip harvesting over follicular unit extraction (FUE) is that more hair follicles can be transplanted, and in less time. And since only the area where the strip is removed is shaved, once the donor area is closed the hair above covers the sutures immediately.
