HAIR TRANSPLANTS

Florida’s Most Experienced Hair Transplant Center

WHAT IS A HAIR TRANSPLANT?

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique used to transplant healthy hair from one area of the body to the area affected by hair loss or balding.

HAIR TRANSPLANT COST

The average cost of a hair transplant can range anywhere from $4,000 to $16,000. Pricing is dependent on a variety of different factors, including procedure, clinic, and stage of hair loss. Most hair transplant clinics charge patients per transplanted hair graft, which can be as high as $15 / graft. Please see specific procedure for a more precise quote.

FUE VS. FUT

The main difference between the FUE and FUT hair transplant techniques are in the way hair follicles are extracted from the donor area. The FUE method individually dissects hair grafts, while the FUT method removes a very thin sliver of tissue from the donor area to harvest hair grafts.

What is Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a surgical hair restoration technique used to transplant healthy hair from one area of the body to the area where hair loss is occurring to promote hair growth. The first hair transplant procedure was introduced to the United States in the 1950’s. Since then, huge technological advancements have been made to improve the overall time and effectiveness of hair transplants.

During hair transplantation, healthy hair is extracted from an area referred to as the donor site. The hair transplant donor area is commonly located on the back of the scalp where hair is not affected by chemicals such as DHT (dihydrotestosterone), one of the main chemical influencers of hair loss. Hair is harvested from the donor site using one of two methods: the follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant method or the follicular unit transplantation (FUT) hair transplant method. Once the hair is harvested, it’ll then be transplanted into the area affected by thinning hair follicles or bald spots. The area affected by hair loss is referred to as the hair transplant recipient site.

Difference Between FUT and FUE

Follicular unit extraction and follicular unit transplantation are the two common techniques used for hair transplants. Both the FUE and FUT methods have shown incredible results in restoring hair loss. The main difference between the two hair transplants are in the way hair follicles are extracted from the donor area.

Both FUE and FUT hair transplants use follicular units to promote hair growth. A follicular unit contains anywhere from 1 to 4 hair follicles that are all growing naturally out of a single pore. Since both procedures use the follicular grouping method for extraction, smaller hair grafts can be taken to provide a more natural-looking appearance compared to older hair transplants.

IDEAL CANDIDATES

Patients in advanced stages of hair loss, prefer to wear longer hair styles, want maximum fullness in a single session, or those not a good fit for FUE. Patients in earlier stages of hair loss, prefer to wear their hair short, or those requiring minimal downtime.

MAJOR BENEFITS

Less expensive, shorter procedure time, no haircut, max amount of hair grafts harvested, optimal graft survival, natural-looking results Minimally invasive, no suturing or scarring, little to no downtime, less risk of human error or fatigue, ability to wear hair completely shaved, scar camouflage

FUT Hair Transplant

FUT Hair Transplant is commonly referred to as the linear strip method. This hair transplant technique requires a very thin and long sliver of tissue to be removed from the donor area. The follicular units will then be extracted from that strip using high-powered magnification for dissection, and placed back into the recipient site for hair to begin growing once again. The technique allows hair transplant surgeons to cover more area in a single section with optimal graft survival.

Follicular unit transplantation is less expensive than other hair transplant options. Recovery time is slightly longer than the FUE procedure, requiring anywhere from 1 to 7 days before patients can return to their normal schedule. FUT is recommended for patients who like to wear their hair long, patients who are looking to obtain maximum fullness from a hair restoration procedure, patients in the more advanced stages of hair loss, or patients who are not a good fit for FUE.

FUE Hair Transplant

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is one of the newer methods used for hair transplants. The FUE hair transplant technique dissects individual hair grafts directly from the scalp versus using a linear strip method like FUT. In turn, there is absolutely no sign of any linear scarring or hair transplantation having ever occurred. FUE is minimally invasive and does not require any stitches or suturing.

FUE hair transplant is recommended for patients who are in the earlier stages of hair loss, patients who like to wear their hair short, and patients looking for minimal to no downtime after surgery. Tampa Bay Hair Restoration offers follicular unit extraction using ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant and NeoGraft Hair Transplant.
