Most patients with hair loss problems considering hair transplant surgery will often come across the terms Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transfer / Strip Method (FUT) during the course of their research and whether how to decide whether an FUE or FUT hair transplant is the right choice for them.
In an FUE, each follicular unit is individually taken directly from the scalp with no strip of tissue being removed. This method of hair transplantation:
- does not involve taking an entire strip of scalp from the back of the head
- does not require stitches
- and has no linear scars.
In terms of recovery, healing time is much faster; with the patient often returning to work even on the next day itself.
In the Philippines, there is only one authentic hair restoration surgeon who has performed the most number of FUE procedures, and that is Dr. Romeo V. Bato.
FUE involves great skill and vast experience before you can truly embark on having a mega session. At Nu/Hart clinic, with our innovative techniques, and skill in FUE; we have already achieved excellent results that no other hair restoration clinic can match.
We have had numerous patients who have inquired with other clinics regarding FUE, and they are one in saying that they have always been disuaded in undergoing FUE and instead redirected to opting for FUT. Many reasons were cited as to the advantages of FUT; even when the patient has specifically inquired about FUE.
Makes us wonder why! We can only surmise on the following factors as to the hesitation of other clinics to do FUE:
- Lack of skill and experience of their resident hair restoration surgeon.
- Inability to handle mega sessions.
- Poor survivability rates of their FUE grafts.
- Technicians are not trained to assist on FUE procedures.
- Fear of medical malpractice due to false advertising.
While it is true that many would still opt for FUT rather than FUE due to cost considerations; we at Nu/Hart pride ourselves with providing our clients with the most benefits at the least cost.
We have had many patients who went to our clinic for remedial measures on horrifying results from other hair transplant surgeons. We surely hope you are not the next one.
The decision to have a hair restoration surgery should not rest on cost alone; but more importantly, it should be hinged on the skill and experience of the surgeon. For what good is the money you saved if you will not be happy with the results you desire.
