FUT in Ann Arbor, Michigan
Hair loss isn’t inevitable. If you look at your family tree and see balding everywhere, turn to hair transplantation and break the cycle of premature hair loss. You can’t change your genetics, but you still have options to restore your hairline and stop hair loss.
There are many different hair transplantation techniques. One of the first mainstream methods used for hair restoration is follicular unit transplantation, or FUT. Could FUT help restore your hairline?
FUT remains a popular hair transplantation approach, though skilled doctors now perform it less frequently than newer methods like FUE. Currently, about 75% of patients are choosing FUE techniques so they can wear their hair shorter and have less recovery time and scarring.
Many people call FUT the strip method because it involves harvesting a long strip of hair-bearing tissue from the back of the head. An experienced hair transplant surgeon will divide this tissue strip into grafts by cutting apart each hair follicle, then placing them into balding areas like the front and top of the scalp.
