So the debate that which surgical procedure is better often takes place wherever there is a discussion about the hair transplants. Everyone likes to side with one option or the other. Both Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are extensively used hair transplant procedures and both possess many pros and cons. A new entrant in form of Stem Cell FUE is also now used due to its precision. These pros and cons should lead a person to decide on which one should be used for the transplant.
Let’s have a brief look into both FUT and FUE hair transplant in Dubai and see if we can reach a definitive verdict on the matter.
It is also known as the fut strip hair transplant In Dubai method. A strip of scalp is cut from the back of the head in order to get the follicular units for the transplant. The strip is then dissected into follicular units containing 1-4 hair under a stereo microscope for the purpose of transplant. These follicular units, also called grafts, are then inserted into incisions that have been made for that very purpose in the recipient area.
Pros and Cons
The method has a reasonable rate of success and does not cost as much as some of the other procedures which makes it a viable option. The biggest con is that the strip that is cut from the donor site leaves a linear mark which is quite long. Downtime after the procedure is generally two weeks which is also a bit. A fair amount of post-operative care too needs to be taken.
In FUE hair transplant in Abu Dhabi method the hair follicles are extracted by using a punch like mechanism. This allows a single follicular unit to be extracted without the need of any dissection. Once all grafts have been extracted, these can be placed in the incision made in the recipient area.
Pros and Cons
Success rate in FUE Hair Transplant in Abu Dhabi/Dubai is higher than that of FUT Hair Transplant in Dubai/Abu Dhabi because of the fact that dissection is not required. It also has a lot less of down time in comparison. Importantly to know that FUE does not leave a large scar. It does, however, leave some very small pinhole like scars which are caused by the extraction process. Fue Cost in Dubai is quite high so that is one of the downsides.
This is the most modern technique available. While most of the process is similar to the regular FUE, the extraction of follicular units is done with the help of specially made devices that accelerate the process. For this reason, the success rate is 100%.
Pros and Cons
The speed of extraction is several folds in stem cell FUE when compared with FUE. The number of grafts per session possible is 4000 which is also higher. The recovery time is also lesser than all other options. However, it is a fair bit more expensive as well.
Considering all options, it greatly comes down to individual choices as both are pretty effective. People looking for a more cost effective procedure are more likely going to opt for an FUT hair transplant. On the flipside, people looking for no major scars or willing to spend some more for better results are more likely going to go with the FUE hair transplant in Dubai. For those that want the very best of results and monetary consideration mean little, Stem Cell FUE is their option.
