There are two types of methods or techniques are used in the hair transplant procedure to extract the needed number of hair roots or follicles to cover the respective grade of baldness. The hair transplant procedure is the sophisticated plastic and cosmetic surgery that is used to treat the pattern baldness effectively. The restoration procedure is just not only useful to treat the pattern baldness, but it also used to treat the loss due to accidental burns, situational hair loss or scars that need the hair restoration. The hair transplant procedure perfectly addresses the issue of hair loss by implanting the viable hair roots into the recipient balding part of the scalp. The hair transplant in India offers you the benefits of getting the affordable service with the dual advantage of the expert cosmetic surgeons practicing in India having multiple branches across the globe.

First of all, it is needed to know that what technique is used to extract the grafts/hair roots in the procedure which ultimately decides the success of the procedure. On the other hand, it is also a considerable factor that the hair transplant cost in India majorly depends on the number of grafts and the strength of extraction wholly and solely depends on the used method in the procedure.

In this article, we are mentioning the detail of each technique separately for the reader’s easy grasping are as follows: -
The FUT Hair Transplant: The FUT or the follicular unit transplant involves the strip excision that contains the hair roots in a maximum number followed by the dissection process to obtain viable grafts. After the extraction step, the next step is the dissection that is recommended to perform under the higher magnification of microscopes in order to obtain a number of viable grafts to fulfil the surgical job.

The FUT Hair Transplant is always performed by extracting the hair roots from the safe donor part, I.e., the back and sides of the scalp that are DHT-resistant and destined to remain permanent in nature despite transplanted to another location of the scalp.

The Role of Donor Are in the Hair Transplant Procedure:
Since the procedure is done by taking the hair roots from the patient’s own scalp and here the donor area is targeted from the patient’s own scalp thus there is not even a single chance for the side effect. Another point that needs to be considered is about the aesthetic role of the zone in the hair transplant treatment. The donor zone is stable and gets in the same nature once a patient achieve the maturity state. The donor dominant theory is applied in the restoration job that maintains the aesthetic concern in terms of allowing a surgeon to achieves the permanent hair roots. The DHT-resistant hair roots are only destined to remain permanent and retain their resistivity characteristics despite being transplanted to another location on the scalp. And, this is the most significant aspect of the FUT/strip method of the surgery as the hair roots are extracted only from the safe donor part of the scalp and gives the permanent result.

The FUE Hair Transplant: The FUE or the follicular unit extraction is the procedure that is performed by using the punching tool to extract every graft in a random fashion. Thus, the FUE technique is regardless of the safe donor part and a surgeon is bound to extract the hair roots from the unsafe areas as well. The multiple punching is needed to extract every single graft and if the requirement is a heavy number to cover the bigger grade of baldness, the multiple extractions would be needed that may take several hours or longer depending on the extent of baldness level.

The FUE hair transplant is primarily used to treat the lesser grade of Norwood baldness when the degree of loss is below IV and also used when a patient needs the body hair transplant to restore the hair in the areas of the eyebrow, beard or moustache.

The methods or technique used in the hair transplant procedure facilitates the process of hair root extraction, either done by the FUT or the FUE, but the remaining all the steps such as the hairline design, slit making process and the implantation are all same in both the techniques.
