Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Follicular unit transplantation removes a strip of tissue from the back or sides of the scalp and divides it into follicular unit grafts of one, two, or three hair strands. These hair grafts are artfully placed into balding areas to create a natural, fuller hairline.

  • Surgical hair restoration procedure
  • Uses a strip of tissue to create follicular unit hair grafts
  • The hair grafts are placed to create a more full, natural hairline
  • Minimal downtime

NeoGraft® Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
