What are the types of hair transplant?

There are generally two main types of hair transplant:

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) or Strip Harvesting: This method involves the removal of a strip of scalp from the donor area, typically from the back or side of the head, where the hair is genetically resistant to balding. The strip is then dissected into individual follicular units under a microscope and transplanted into the recipient area.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): This technique involves the extraction of individual follicular units from the donor area using a punch tool. The units are then transplanted into the recipient area.

Both FUT and FUE are effective techniques for hair restoration, but each has its own advantages and disadvantages. FUE typically results in less scarring and a shorter recovery time, but may require more time and expertise to perform. FUT, on the other hand, allows for the transplantation of larger quantities of hair in a single session and can be more cost-effective, but leaves a linear scar in the donor area.
