The main difference between FUT and FUE hair transplant in Dubai is the technique used. Both of them provide permanent and natural looking results. Let’s analyze and compare both of these techniques:
It is also known as the strip removal method as it involves removing a strip bearing hair grafts from the donor site. The donor site is the area which involves back and sides of the scalp. Hair follicles are extracted from the strip. Excess tissue is removed afterward. Recipient sites are made and harvested hair follicles are implanted in the recipient’s area.
FUT hair transplant surgery is performed under anesthesia, so there is no pain involved during the procedure. However, due to the extraction of an entire strip and stitches, it definitely involves some discomfort and pain. But it’s not something which is unbearable and it can easily be controlled by using pain killers prescribed by doctors.
The FUT hair transplant technique is definitely accompanied by scaring. It is the major downfall of this technique. People are left with a linear scar at the back of their scalp. Through this scar don’t shows through if individuals wear their hair long. However, it can be seen if one wears shorter hairstyles and cropped looks.
Cost of FUT hair transplant is dependent on a couple of factors. These factors include hair transplant surgeon, clinic chosen, number of grafts required and type of surgery. Generally, FUT hair transplant is a little less expensive than FUE hair transplant and priced charged per graft is 15 AED.
FUE hair transplant involves extracting individual hair follicles, usually from the back and sides of the scalp (or body, if you don’t have sufficient hair on the scalp). Recipient sites are made and these follicular units are inserted into these incisions. This is a minimally invasive procedure and doesn’t require extensive downtime and recovery.
FUE hair transplant in Dubai is accompanied by minimum pain, owing to its minimally invasive nature. Follicular units are extracted individually, therefore no stitches and cuts are involved that will lead to extreme pain. However, minimal discomfort is involved as it is a surgical procedure. However, it can be controlled using pain killers.
FUE is best known for being a scarless procedure. As no strip extraction is involved. Tiny dot-like scars may appear on some patients which gradually fade away, in the few months proceeding after surgery.
Cost of FUE hair transplant in Dubai can vary depending upon the surgeon and hair clinic chosen. However, as a general rule of thumb, the cost per graft is 15AED. You can calculate the number of grafts you require from the graft calculator.
You might be inclining towards one method or the other depending upon your research. However, it is important to visit a hair Doctor Dubai and go for an expert opinion. Make sure to share with your surgeon which method are you more comfortable with and why. You will leave with a clear decision.
