The FUT Hair Transplant Procedure

fut hair transplant
  • Step 1 – During a FUT hair transplant, a local anesthetic will be used to numb the areas where follicles are being extracted and implanted.
  • Step 2 – The donor tissue is removed from the scalp in a single thin strip (Single-strip harvesting). The location of the donor area is carefully chosen to be a region of the scalp with maximum hair density and the best long-term stability.
  • Step 3 – In Follicular Unit Transplantation, the individual follicular units (each containing from 1 to 4 hairs) are meticulously dissected from the donor strip in their naturally occurring groups under strict stereo-microscopic control.
  • Step 4 – Recipient sites are made by the surgeon using a fine instrument the size of 21- and 19- gauge hypodermic needles. For most procedures, we use lateral (perpendicular slits) for the recipient sites. Recipient site creation is a critical aspect of hair restoration surgery that requires considerable experience and surgical skill and a keen aesthetic sense.
  • Step 5 – Once all of the recipient sites are made, the technician team begins to place the follicular unit grafts into these pre-made sites. One-hair follicular units are used in the frontal hair line to give a soft, natural appearance and 3- and 4-hair grafts are used in the central forelock area to achieve maximum fullness.
  • Step 6 – When placing is complete, the position of all of the grafts will be double-checked. The post-op instructions will be explained by our doctors.

Post-op Care

  • Use cold compressor to reduce post-surgical swelling and pain
  • Start taking prescribed medications immediately after your surgery
  • Keep your head in an upright position for 2 days at least
  • Avoid smoking for 1 week following the surgery
  • The vulnerable recipient area must be protected from the sun
  • Limit your alcohol and caffeine consumption for a few days
  • Picking or scratching the scalp is strictly not allowed for around 30 days
  • Limit or avoid sports or exercises for 30 days
  • Do not wear any hats or bandage for 10 days
  • Wash your hair as instructed by our surgeon
  • You can shower as normal using the shampoo given to you 10 days after your procedure

  • review rating 5  Lovely doctor called Dr Ha who is so friendly and caring. Everything was explained in detail and with honesty. The price offered was very competitive and no need to travel abroad anymore as I got the price I wanted in the UK. Medical surgery fees are so overcharged in the UK and this ultimately leaves patients with no option but to travel abroad and have surgery however this always comes with a risk. Looking forward to the surgery now !! 100% recommend BMC esp those who are considering surgery abroad.

  • review rating 5  Fantastic clinic with state of the art facilities in high St Kensington. Consultation was really good as I got to meet surgeon on the day also. I even spoke to patients who have had their surgery with BMC and that was very assuring. The price I was given was extremely competitive. I’m so glad I found BMC and have avoided travelling abroad for surgery as that can be a hit and miss. Can’t wait for my surgery!!! Thank you BMC and all their staff esp Mo the patient coordinator.
