FUT Hair Transplant Los Angeles
Are you struggling with bald spots, androgenic alopecia, or thinning hair?
Combatting Hair Loss: FUT Hair Transplant Procedure
Follicular Unit Transplant, also known as the strip method, is a state-of-the-art surgical procedure that involves transplanting hair from a donor area of the scalp to the recipient site. These can be areas where the patient is experiencing balding or thinning of the hair. Experts have considered FUT the traditional and gold-standard treatment of significant hair loss for years.
The donor site in this procedure is typically on the back or sides of the head, where a group of one to four hairs (a follicular unit) is extracted from a thin strip of the scalp. The size of the strip depends on the number of graft hairs needed to achieve the desired fullness.
Once the follicular unit is removed, your surgeon will prepare the graft follicles for implantation with precision. The surgery can take anywhere from four to eight hours, and local anesthesia can be used to numb the scalp.
The wound edges from where the incision was made will be closed with stitches. Patients can expect moderate scarring, though it will fade over time. Shock hair loss occurs when the transplanted hair falls out within two months post-surgery. Patients can expect to experience this as they progress on their hair transplant recovery, but can expect to see hair regrowth within four months.
While strip surgery can tend to leave scarring, it can be concealed once hair regrowth takes place. You will also notice fresh growth after three months in the recipient site, right after shock loss takes place.
Who is a Candidate for FUT?

More About the FUT Method
Most patients see their FUT hair transplant results in six to nine months, although significant progress can take up to a year. Your surgeon will advise check-ups post procedure and give instructions to encourage hair growth and recovery.
Compared to FUE, FUT is the more economical and practical option — ideal for patients with a strict budget. However, the costs vary depending on a number of factors, such as the degree of hair loss, the number of grafts needed, and the thickness you want to achieve.
