Hair Transplants

FUT hair transplants

Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) delivers permanent, natural-looking results that are indistinguishable from your existing hair. This method enables the extraction of a greater number of grafts from a limited donor area.

A note from Dr. Rogers, hair transplant surgeon

“FUT Surgery has an important role as a procedure being offered to patients with certain types of hair loss. FUT is an ideal option for patients who keep their hair long, those who are considering unshaven procedures with extensive loss and those with a larger graft requirement.”

What is a FUT hair transplant?

Dr. Raja, Hair transplant surgeon

In FUT surgery, a thin strip of hair is removed from the back of the head from which individual grafts are taken and implanted into balding areas. It delivers natural-looking results that are indistinguishable from your existing hair.

Why choose FUT surgery?

If you require a larger number of grafts, have previously had FUT surgery, or have tight curls or Afro-textured hair, FUT surgery could be ideal for you.

Suitable for moderate hair loss

FUT surgery is suitable for all types of hair loss, and is ideal for those with moderate to extensive hair loss.

Ideal for limited donor areas

This method enables the extraction of a greater number of grafts from a limited donor area.

No shaving required

There's no need to shave the donor area with FUT surgery so it’s ideal for those with longer hair.

General FUT frequently asked questions

How long does FUT surgery take?

On average an FUT hair transplant usually takes between 6 to 8 hours depending on the graft requirement.

How long is the recovery period?

You should be able to return to your normal routine 10 to 14 days after your FUT surgery depending on your lifestyle. You may resume gentle exercise from week 1 and more strenuous exercise from week 2 following surgery.

Who will perform the FUT procedure?

All of our hair transplant procedures are performed by our highly accredited surgeons. Although they are highly skilled members of the team, our technicians and surgical assistants will never harvest any follicles or create the incisions into which the grafts are transplanted. They will assist the surgeon in graft placement once the surgeon has created the incisions, which is a safe, recognised role for surgical assistants in the UK.

Are there any side effects of FUT surgery?

There may be some minor pain, swelling, and itchiness for a few days post-surgery but this will subside and is easily managed with the medication provided in your aftercare package.

Will I need to shave my head?

There's no need to shave the donor area with FUT surgery so it’s ideal for those with longer hair. If there are existing hairs in the recipient area we sometimes trim these to facilitate graft placement, however, this is usually not necessary. You won’t need to shave your head prior to surgery, our team will trim your hair on the day if required. We recommend waiting for 2 weeks before getting your first haircut following surgery.

It worked! The surgery wasn’t too bad - the painful bit is the injections with the anaesthetic but after that it doesn’t hurt. It’s now 6 months in and my hair has all come in and it’s looking great, a natural looking hairline and I look feel younger and the density is great. If you want a hair transplant, I’d 100% recommend Dr Raja.

The level of service from DR Raja and his team was exemplary. The pre consultations and post operative care was great with responsive communications throughout.. As for the procedure itself I was very happy with the care and attention during the procedure and the outcome so far has been great and I’m only 8 months post operation so very happy at this stage. Cannot recommend Dr Raja highly enough so much so I’m planning my next procedure

Dr Raja and his team are experts and I can’t thank them enough. My hair growth is 100% from the surgery as I didn’t take any supplements. Dr Raja did advise the hair supplements would give me a more superior result when combined with hair surgery however for personal reasons I chose to keep it organic.
