FUT Hair Transplant in Gurgaon

Follicular Unit Transplantation or FUT hair transplant in Gurgaon is a strip procedure in which a group of 1–4 hairs, called a unit, is implanted to the affected area of balding or thinning. These 1–4 groups of hairs are small and naturally occurring. The microscopic dissection is used to extract a thin piece of the scalp and tissues. It creates a wound that is later closed once the follicles are harvested enough for implantation. This procedure leaves a fine and linear scar. The main goal and advantage of using the FUT technique is achieving natural results with manageable recovery time. A comparatively higher rate is observed for the survival of follicles as the tissue remains intact during the harvesting procedure, which releases higher quality and robust grafts. Additionally, there is no scarring in the follow-up and subsequent sessions of implantation.

Who is the ideal candidate for FUT Hair Transplant in Gurgaon?

The ideal candidate for FUT hair transplant in Gurgaon could be men with permanent observed androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness). FUT is only applicable for people above 25 years of age as hair loss patterns are difficult to predict at a younger age. Hair thickness plays an important role to determine the type of technique to use; high density of hair follicles tend to perceive fullness with better coverage. FUT is a preferred technique to treat baldness in the front area of the head, also known as the crown area.

How does a hair transplant work?

FUT hair transplant is a type of restoration procedure in which a strip (1–1.5 centimetres or 0.4–0.6 inches approx.) of scalp skin is cut from the back of the head which is later sealed by stitches. The portion is separated into small sections. This will help in achieving natural-looking hair growth, once hair is implanted. This procedure uses local anaesthesia so that the patient experiences less pain. Once the entire procedure of extracting from the donor area and implantation to the affected area is completed, bandages and antibiotics will be applied to the scalp to avoid the risk of any infection. The results are expected to be observed in 6–9 months. However, it may take 1 year for certain individuals depending on their skin type, the severity of baldness and density of harvested follicles.

What to expect after a FUT Hair transplant?

FUT generally takes up to 5 weeks to recover with swelling and discomfort that may continue for a few days. It is imperative to follow post-operative care with a proper routine to achieve desired outcomes. Stitches will be removed after 7–10 days of the procedure. 

  • Do not take shower or wash your hair for at least 5 days.
  • Once hair wash is started, use prescribed and gentle shampoos.
  • Take optimum rest to facilitate healing.
  • Avoid brushing and combing and do not cover your hair by wearing hats or beanies till your doctor confirms.
  • Avoid any strenuous physical activity.
  • Follow a balanced diet and optimum water intake.
  • Follow prescribed medications and routine visits for any adequate treatment, if required.

Success Rate of FUT Hair Transplant in Gurgaon

FUT has an advantage with a higher survival rate as compared to other techniques such as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Data from clinical studies have revealed that about 85–95% of the implanted grafts grow easily in the transplanted area. This data supports the high efficiency and success rate of the hair transplant procedure based on the customer’s satisfaction, which is an important aspect of the calculation. If the surgeon makes a detail-oriented path, different techniques might even increase the success rate to 95–95%.

Complications and potential side effects

The observed complications with FUT are rare. However, individuals may experience some common side effects, such as:

  • Scarring or bumps formation, which will fade over time. But it will remain permanent on the skin which may stay hidden with your hairs in general cases.
  • An unnatural look of the hair for initial months.
  • Swelling, scabbing and pain will subside over time, and with regularising prescribed medications.
