We practice Follicular Unit Hair Transplant (FUHT) which is the conventional technique followed all over the world with consistent results. Male and female patients who wish to undergo FUHT (strip technique) need not be completely bald. FUHT is The conventional method of Hair Transplant, involves taking out of a strip from the posterior scalp, followed by dissection of the strip by , trained para medical workers, to give the surgeon follicular grafts.
FUHT is good to give you a graft need of upto 5500 to 6500 follicles in selected cases; with Super Trichophytic Closure the extent of scar is very minimal and hardly noticeable in FUHT procedures too.
