Follicular Unit Transplants Surpass FUE In Requested Procedures
FUE is a specialized, more expensive hair transplant procedure when compared to its FUT counterpart. Frequently, Follicular Unit Transplants may be the better option. Additionally, they may save you a lot of money.
Follicular Unit Transplants
You wouldn’t think that a hair transplant clinic would try to change a patient’s mind. This is especially true when FUE brings in considerably more money. However, we do it here at Best Hair Transplant all the time. The reason is that FUE, while usually the more popular option, is not always the best procedure for our patients.
While FUE may be preferred in certain situations, such as if you wear your hair short or other reasons mentioned in our FUE pros and cons blog, it can be challenging when patients who are clearly better candidates for FUT come into our office set on an FUE procedure.
This is why we are happy to report that more and more patients are coming in demanding a quality FUT procedure performed by our award-winning doctor, Ronald Philip Chao, MD. While we still get plenty of FUE requests, we are noticing patients coming to us already educated on the differences between FUT and FUE procedures. As such, our patients are much more often requesting procedures that truly match their needs.
A quick set of basic rules regarding FUT vs FUE procedures:
- FUT is less expensive than FUE and has a more cost-effective graft yield.
- While FUE is a specialized procedure, you don’t have to be a surgeon to perform an FUE procedure. Luckily, our FUE procedures are performed by one who is.
- Most patients who need FUE either wear their hair too short to hide the FUT scar or they have already had enough FUTs that their scalp no longer has the elasticity for another FUT.
- If you’re only concerned about the FUT scar, take a look at the linked page to see how a FUT scar actually looks after healing.
At Best Hair Transplant, we understand that a professionally performed, cost-effective procedure is of top priority. Contact us to have a consultant perform your complimentary virtual or in-person consultation today!
