What are the best hair transplant options available for women in Massachusetts? Well, if you are among the rare breed of women who qualifies for a hair transplant procedure, both FUT (follicular unit transplantation) and FUE (follicular unit extraction) can give you the result you need. So, how do you know which option will work for you? Here are some things you need to consider before you make your decision.
FUT vs. FUE for Women: Which Is the Better Choice?
While both treatment options can give you the result you want, they differ in the method by which the hair grafts are harvested. Whereas the FUT technique calls for the removal of a thin strip of skin from the donor area, follicular units are extracted in naturally occurring groups of one to four hairs in the FUE technique. As such, FUT leaves a linear scar while FUE simply leaves small white dots where the hair follicles have been harvested.
Despite this apparent disadvantage, however, FUT advocates claim that it can result in more consistent and more natural-looking hair growth since the transplanted follicles do not undergo the same amount of trauma as those harvested using FUE do. As such, while FUT guarantees a large number of non-transected or usable hair grafts, the same cannot be said about FUE.
However, this is simply not the case with the DiStefano Hair Restoration Center. With the specialized micro-instruments that we are currently using to extract individual hair follicles, you can be sure that there will be no damage to the harvested grafts.
There is also a great difference between the costs of these two procedures. FUT significantly costs less since it is simpler, involves less incision and can be completed faster. FUE, other hand, may be the more expensive option but it offers quicker recovery time and less post-operative discomfort. It also serves as the best hair transplant option for those whose scalps are too tight for a strip incision.
By understanding the basic differences between these two techniques, you can easily choose the best hair transplant option that will suit your personal needs. So, have you made your decision?
