Follicular Unit Transplantation

At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer FUT, or follicular unit transplantation, for patients seeking a fuller head of hair. Although FUT hair surgery is more invasive than FUE hair transplant methods, it can provide dramatic improvements to hair thickness and density in a shorter period of time. The FUT method, or strip method, is a well-established and commonly performed hair restoration technique. FUT hair transplant surgery in Atlanta can help patients restore the full head of hair that they once had permanently.

What Is FUT Hair Surgery?

A follicular unit transplantation, or FUT hair transplant, is a more traditional method of hair restoration. Although this procedure is more extensive when compared to the FUE method, it can provide dramatic, long-lasting results. During the FUT hair surgery, a strip of healthy hair follicles is surgically removed from the scalp. Then, the follicles are removed from the strip and strategically transplanted to offer the most natural-looking results. FUT hair transplant surgery can restore hair for patients struggling with hair loss.

The FUT method or hair restoration in Atlanta is a faster and less time-consuming procedure than the manual FUE method. FUT hair transplants can increase a receding hairline, fill in bald patches on the scalp, and increase hair density. This hair restoration technique is commonly used to treat male pattern baldness; however, it can also be used to treat hair loss caused by other factors.

What Are The Benefits Of FUT Hair Surgery?

Patients who opt for FUT hair surgery can enjoy a shorter procedure time and natural looking. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer FUT hair transplants for men and women seeking to restore hair that has begun to thin or bald. Because FUT hair transplants harvest donor hair follicles all at once, patients can enjoy shorter procedure times. FUT hair transplants are highly individualized, allowing new hair to grow with the natural hair pattern and providing comprehensive hair restoration results.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For FUT Hair Surgery?

During your consultation for FUT hair surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team of hair restoration professionals will review your hair and scalp, medical history, as well as your aesthetic goals to determine if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. FUT hair transplant surgery can treat hair loss, thinning, and provide thicker hair for patients who aim to achieve maximum fullness. This procedure can restore hair loss caused by a variety of factors, including androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness, injury, scarring, and more.

The ideal candidate for an FUT hair transplant is in good general health and a non-smoker. Additionally, it is important that patients maintain realistic expectations for the results of their procedure. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer hair restoration for patients seeking improved hair density.

What Should I Expect During FUT Hair Surgery?

Before undergoing FUT hair surgery, patients will be administered anesthesia. In most cases, local anesthesia is used to perform this procedure. Once the procedure begins, a strip of healthy hair will be removed from the donor area. This is usually from the back of the head. Once the strip is removed, our surgeons will begin harvesting the hair follicles to be transplanted into the treatment areas. While this is happening, the strip incisions will be closed with sutures.

Once the hair is harvested, our surgeons can begin implanting the follicles into the treatment areas. Using very minimal incisions, the follicles can be implanted with precision. FUT hair surgery can transplant several units in one session. Before the procedure is completed, an antibiotic ointment and surgical dressings will be applied to the donor and treatment areas to minimize the risk of infection.

What Should I Expect After FUT Hair Surgery?

After undergoing FUT hair surgery, patients may experience mild-to-moderate swelling, bleeding, and discomfort. However, these symptoms should subside in the days following the procedure as the scalp continues to heal. Before sending you home following the procedure, Dr. Killingsworth and his team will provide detailed aftercare instructions. It’s important that patients follow these instructions with care to minimize the recovery period and maximize results.

Following the procedure, it is recommended that patients keep their head elevated for at least the first 48 hours to alleviate any swelling and avoid trauma to the area. Additionally, patients should avoid any strenuous activity and allow their body to heal. The donor and treatment areas should be kept clean and dry. If you have any questions during your recovery period, we encourage you to call our office. Our staff is on hand to answer any questions you may have during this time.





What Results Should I Expect From FUT Hair Surgery?

During your consultation for FUT hair surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his hair restoration team will discuss your expected results in detail. It is important to remember that no two patients will receive the same results from the procedure. Procedure results depend on a variety of factors, including age, extent of hair loss, the body’s natural healing rate, and more.

It will be hard for patients to visualize their results immediately after the procedure. The treatment and donor areas will be wrapped, and patients may be required to wear a compression garment to combat swelling. Most patients can begin to see new hair growth about 4 months after their procedure. Over the next year, this hair will continue to thicken. The results of FUT hair transplant surgery are permanent.

How Much Does FUT Hair Surgery In Atlanta Cost?

Astra Plastic Surgery offers FUT hair surgery for patients who struggle from hair loss. The cost of FUT hair restoration depends on a variety of factors. Because hair restoration is considered a cosmetic procedure, it will not be covered by insurance. We will provide you with the complete cost during your consultation. We accept payment by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
