We at Sai Cosmetic centre Pune India, practice two technique of hair transplantation: FUE and FUHT (Follicle Unit Hair Transplant) also have known as Strip Method of hair transplant. Both techniques are unique and useful with little advantage and disadvantage over the other. In brief we can sum up the both technique as below:
1.Done without scalpel and stitches, follicles are extracted by 0.5/0.7/1mm punches from donor area.
2.Complete head is shaved.
3.Follicle destruction rate is higher, less the experience of the surgeon more is the rate of destruction of follicles.
5.In one sitting maximum 2500 to 3000 follicles can be transplanted.
6.Way of giving local anaesthesia is same in both method of hair transplant.
