FUT and FUE methods in Iran
If you started to lose your hair lately, there are some ways to prevent or delay it; but if you have lost hair already and you are determined to transplant natural hair, we could help you with our hair transplant services in Iran. Iranian cosmetic surgeons mostly use FUE and FUT methods for hair transplant; Side effects of these methods are the least and the results are the best in all known hair transplant techniques.
There have been many academic research to see hair transplant results in Iran which will be provided later; our own research shows almost all patients were highly or reasonably satisfied.
The procedure duration is 4 to 8 hours and the healing process starts 3 days after the operation. The operation is performed under local anesthetics in a modern clinic.
After cleaning the head, doctor injects local anesthetic to numb your scalp in both procedures, then:
- In FUT (follicular unit transplantation) or FUSS (follicular unit strip surgery) or just strip method, surgeon removes a strip of skin from back of scalp and sews the wound together again. Then the team of assistants remove hair grafts and divide them (they contain one to three hair each).
- In FUE (follicular unit extraction) also known as FT (follicular transfer) method, after cleaning and shaving the scalp; the surgery team removes follicular units form donor area one by one.
After preparing the grafts for transplantation and creating holes in bald areas, surgeon and assistants place hairs in holes, very delicately, with special tiny needles or scalpel. Number of transplanted grafts depends highly on hair type and strip size.
In some cases the doctor uses two different method simultaneously. Nowadays, because of less scarring, patients prefer FUE because it is the less invasive method.
The procedure takes 4-8 hours depending on the number of grafts and size of recipient area.
It takes 3-5 days to heal and you will see the initial results in 3-4 months; but it takes almost 9 months up to a year to see the full results, there have been some rare cases which took about a year and a half to see the full results, so be patient.
