There are a few different types of hair transplant techniques that are used to restore hair growth in patients with hair loss. The most common techniques include:
- Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): Also known as the strip method, FUT involves removing a strip of skin from the back of the head and dividing it into individual hair follicles, which are then transplanted to the recipient site. FUT allows for the transplantation of a large number of hair follicles in a single procedure, resulting in more dramatic results. However, FUT does leave a linear scar at the donor site.
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): FUE involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor site using a punch tool. The extracted hair follicles are then transplanted to the recipient site. FUE is less invasive than FUT and does not leave a linear scar, but it requires a larger number of sessions to achieve the same results as FUT.
- DHI (Direct Hair Implantation): DHI involves the direct implantation of hair follicles into the scalp using a special instrument called a choi implanter pen. The DHI method is less invasive than other methods and allows for the precise placement of the transplanted hair follicles, resulting in a more natural-looking result.
- Biofibre Hair Implant: The Biofibre Hair Implant is a synthetic hair implant that is made of a biocompatible material that is similar to human hair. The Biofibre Hair Implant is inserted into the scalp using a special needle and is designed to mimic the natural growth and movement of real hair.
