The removal and then grafting of individual follicular units to the recipient area is at the heart of modern hair loss restoration surgery. For the best hair transplant the surgeon and technicians must harvest the grafts while maintaining their integrity.
There are two methods of removing follicular units from the scalp. They are called the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and the Individual Graft Technique™ (also called the follicular unit extraction). In both methods, the follicular units are placed in the recipient area in the same way. Where they differ is in how they are removed from the scalp and prepared for transplant.
