also enables our Hair surgeons to remove hair follicle units from other donation sites besides the scalp, including your torso or beard area. There are however restrictions with this option and not all patients will qualify.
PRP + FUE can also be used to camouflage previous donor scars by taking from a region near the linear donor scar and placing it put into the areas of the scar.
F.U.E. vs F.U.T.
Please note that there is no effective non-surgical hair restoration technique. Both FUT and FUE require surgical extraction. F.U.E may be less invasive than F.U.T but both are considered “surgical.”
Generally speaking, the overall harvesting power of F.U.T. via strip is superior to that of F.U.E for two primary reasons.
- F.U.T. enables our Thai hair surgeons to isolate only the best grafts / follicle units externally. This advantage can be minimized in some cases using Robotic Unit Extraction.
- F.U.T strip harvesting enables our surgeon use healthiest portion in the donor region.
F.U.E benefits include its ability to recreate hairlines and cover any hairless skin including facial hair restoration, eyebrow restoration,beard restoration and goatee restoration. Since there are no linear incisions with F.U.E, patients can generally resume strenuous activities considerably faster than if using the strip tetechniqueOur F.U.E technique may also be utilized in conjunction with strip technique to increase the total amount of grafts extracted during one session without increasing the size of any strip scar. F.U.E is also very beneficial in its ability to fix scarring from older out-of-date hair transplant operations that were previously performed.
Required Length of Stay
Since F.U.E harvesting requires a considerably larger area compared to FUT technique (about 5x the area) some areas in the donation site must be shaved down. This can present some objections from some patients. F.U.T strip harvesting however does not require shaving down areas as the donor sites can be covered with existing hair,even for patients with large restoration amounts. The total time required in Thailand will depending on the total areas needing coverage. Generally smaller areas can be treated in less than 3 days while larger areas may require multiple sessions over 1 week to be successful.
