FUT vs. FUE vs. DHI

Which Method is the Best?

A Quick Comparison

The Maison Lutétia Hair Transplant Method

Our method is the game-changer of the hair transplantation industry. From the first follicle extracted to the last follicle implanted, every step of the session has been perfected. The extraction and implantation tools are the most advanced, the medical staff has been specially trained and certified, and the technique is more exacting. All this leads to results that are so dense and natural, your hairdresser will be baffled by your thicker head of hair.


Follicular Unit Transplant

Known as one of the oldest hair Transplantation techniques in the industry, FUT or Follicular Unit Transplant technique, is a surgical method whereby a rectangular, thin strip of scalp is removed from the back of the head. This strip is then examined under a microscope to extract potential hair follicles. The extraction phase is quicker however, it can cause a significant scar which can be a hassle to cover. Although, this technique is one of the more primitive techniques, it’s still practiced by most clinics and hair transplantation centres.


Follicular Unit Extraction

In the Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE technique, an extraction tool is used to make a small circular cut in the donor zone. This technique can be performed by a doctor, technician or an automated tool called Automated Follicular Implant or IFA®. This includes Safer, Neograft and Artas.

FUE is performed multiple times until enough follicles have been collected for implantation.


The First Hair Transplant

Modern hair transplants began in the 1930s in Japan. Surgeons there successfully used small patches of skin containing hair follicles to cover hairless areas damaged by injury. They even managed a few follicular unit grafts to restore hair to eyebrows. They received little attentiona and techniques didn’t advance due to World War II.

    An Important Discovery

    In the late 1950s, New York dermatologist Norman Orentreich began to experiment with donor grafts to patients with male pattern baldness. He discovered that hair retained the qualities of the donor site, they were donor dominant. This means hair transplanted to balding areas wouldn’t fall out again due to the hormone senstivities that cause male pattern baldness. In other words, hair that is resistant to blading will remain that way, regardless of where it is transplanted. And soon after, another doctor determined the “safe donor zone,” the area from which follicles could be harvested to be transplanted elsewhere.


    From Plugs to Strips

    For the next 20 years, surgeons worked to transplant smaller grafts in order to do less damage to the scalp, but with little success. 2 – 4 mm plugs led to a doll’s head appearence. So strip excisions replaced the plug method. The strip could then be disected into micrografts. This was the beginning of Follicular Unit Transplant or FUT. Still, this left scars on the donor area. Then in the early 2000s an Australian doctor experiemented with extracting follicular units from the donor area using a small punch, which led to increased popularity of Follicular Unit Extraction or (FUE). This method can sometimes lead to damaged follicles during extraction and “pit scarring” which is damage done to the scalp by the punch.
