FUE or FUT which method is better?



There are 2 methods of Hair Transplant as per the latest evidences following are our views:
1. FUHT or Strip method ( a conventional method that requires stitches  at the back and leaves a permanent linear scar which at the back that does not make it possible to wear a short hair style and sometimes gives pain and numbness for a few weeks to few months. Healing time is longer due to a long cut at the back)

2. FUE (With recent advances this modern and stitch less method that does not leave a linear scar on the back of the head and heals faster and practically pain free post operatively. Final outcome is better). We use 0.75 to 1 mm micro punch with depth control and use Lorenzo technique for extraction.


The difference between the 2 methods is essentially in harvesting the roots from the back side of the head and the method of grafting and the final outcome of both methods in the area of hair loss (recipient area) is the same. We now strongly believe that FUE is except for the cost is superior method than the FUT (Strip method).

Thanks Jason and all who posted your replies. I was contemplating of going to Yun Nam. After reading about your experiences, I decided not to go? Their TV adds and documentaries were very convincing. Did the people they featured fake their hail loss.
