Comparison of F.U.T. and F.U.E. methods
|Type of extraction||A narrow hair strip is extracted.||The FUs are extracted individually with a special punch.|
Maximum number of follicles per treatment?
|4,500||2,000. In larger treatments, “uncertain” donor areas would have to be made use of running the risk of transplanted hairs falling out again at a later time. It is also important to leave enough donor hair so that the area does not appear sparse.|
|Which hair density can I expect?||A higher density, because the extracted follicles have a good quality and a greater number can be extracted.||A lower density, because a certain number of follicles will be traumatised during the extraction.|
|When will I look 'presentable' again?||After a few days.||After approx. 1 month, once the hairs on the shaved back of the head have grown again.|
|When can I take up sport again?||Approx. 3 weeks after the treatment.||Approx. 3 – 5 days after the operation.|
|How long does the treatment last during the transplantation of approx. 2,000 FUs?||About 4 – 5 hours.||About 10 hours, or in larger cases 2 days, because extraction proceeds slowly.|
|Will the back of my head be shaved?||No.||Yes in most cases.|
|What scars are formed in the donor area?||A long thin scar which is cosmetically closed and practically invisible thanks to the “growing-through technique”.||Thousands of extremely fine circular scars which close on their own after a short time.|
|By when and how does the donor area heal?||The suture is removed after approx. 10 days.||Heals by itself in a few days.|
How many treatments can be carried out using the donor hair?
|3 – 4 treatments are generally possible; even with repeated treatments only a single scar – which is covered by the remaining donor hair – remains.||1 – 2 treatments are possible. Adjacent follicular units will be “distorted” during the first treatment, which makes follow-up treatments more difficult. The number of micro-scars increases with each treatment.|
|How high is the percentage of extracted hair which can be transplanted completely intact?||Over 98 %.||About 80 - 85 %.|
|How does the injury to the skin during the extraction turn out in terms of area?||Low.||High.|
|How long does the extraction of hair last?||About 45 minutes.||Several hours.|
|Where do I get the best result with light hair?||The extraction of FUs is possible with highest reliability.||The losses during the extraction are higher than with dark hair.|
|How good is the viability of transplanted hair?||Very high.|
|How does a very tight scalp have an effect?||Only a smaller number of FUs can be extracted.|
No restrictions during the extraction.
|How is the aesthetic appeal in the extraction area?||No restrictions – the scar is covered by hair.||The extraction area thins out slightly – dot-shaped scars can be visible.|
