Hair Transplant by FUT method - Follicular Unit Transplantation (strip method)

For today, Follicular Unit Transplantation – FUT is the basic method in hair restoration surgery. In case of strip method donor material is taken from the permanent zone (the area in the back) in a shape of elipse. On the following stage, individual follicular units are prepared from the donor strip and then placed in premaked recipient sites (See: “what is hair grafting”).

Follicular unit transplantation gives an effective cosmetic outcome. The main reason is that hairs in case of FUT are transplanted in a form of follicular units exactly like in nature. Strip method gives an opportunity of harvesting and transplanting big amount of grafts, performing mega-sessions (in our clinic, in case of need, till 6000 follicular units during 5-6 hour lasting procedure). Wastage of follicular units (transection) during strip surgery is minimal and the survivability of transplanted grafts is high (90-100 %).

The only disadvantage of strip method is a linear scar which appears on the back of the head on the same area from where donor strip is harvested. Though, our method of the donor wound closure based on trichofitic closure excepts noticeable postoperative scars on the back of the head. The area from where the donor strip is harvested , is hardly observable even for the private barber (See: “about our clinic”).

The photo report on a hair transplant using strip method applied to the patient from South Korea, Han J.H.

On a preoperational, face-to-face consultation, Dr.Akaki Tsilosani examines a donor zone of the patient using computational scanner, Folliscope (Phototrichogram system) for hair and scalp checking.

Hair Transplantation by FUT method

Phototrichogram system helps doctor to define the hair density of the donor zone – quantity of follicular units in each square centimeter and the quantity of hairs in each individual FU. Checking also shows a ratio of growing and having rest hairs in phase’s anagen/telogen, the percent of the healthy and miniaturized hairs.

Hair Transplantation by FUT method

Surgeon signs separate follicular units on the monitor, and system automatically defines the quantity of follicular units in 1cm2.

Hair Transplantation by FUT method

Hair density of Mr.Han in 1cm2 is 80 follicular units.

Hair Transplantation by FUT method

Follicular units in Mr.Han’s case mainly are 1 and 2 hair. 3- Hair FUs are rare. Average quantity of hair, contained in per graft is 1,64 Dr.Akaki Tsilosani explains to Mr.Han that in reality this index is lower than medium, but it is characteristic for the Asians, especially for Koreans.

Hair Transplantation by FUT method

Data’s that phototrichogram analysis give, helps surgeon to determine the sizes of the donor strip.

Hair Transplantation by FUT method

Scale of Han J.H’s surgery is minimum 3000 graft (follicular units) transplantation.

Now doctor divides 3000 (figure of grafts that are needful to be transplanted) on 80 (figure of follicular units in 1cm2 ) and formulates needful sizes of the donor strip for harvesting 3000 grafts.

Hair Transplantation by FUT method

Thus, for getting 3000 grafts, surgeon must harvest donor strip not less than 37, 5 cm2.

In case of Mr.Han’s surgery, Dr. Tsilosani uses mix of two different techniques of creating recipient sites: In hairline area and the front area – sagital (vertical) recipient sites for refined 1-hair and 2- hair grafts. In midscalp and crown area he made – coronal (horizontal) recipient sites for large 2-hair and 3-hair grafts.
