Hair Transplant Training (FUT vs FUE)

Difference between the Strip Method and FUE Hair Transplantation

Hair Transplantation has evolved a great deal in the last couple of decades. The major breakthrough has been the introduction mini and micro grafts. This single discovery virtually revolutionized the whole field of Hair Transplantation.

Learning the Strip method (FUT) is relatively easy. Any surgeon who can make an incision and repair a wound can learn to do the traditional strip method of Hair Transplantation as long as he or she has a good supporting staff of technicians and nurses. All surgeons must learn however about preparing the grafts and implanting them as well, because you will be called upon to check and teach some of your employees.

Observing a few procedures and then performing a few is all that is needed to get your feet wet—finesse of course takes time and you do get better and better as you do more cases.

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a different ball game all together. You need more than just observation and a good instructor. You also need good hand-eye coordination, steady hands, firm back and focused attention.

You also need magnifying glasses or loupes to have a better look at the direction of hair shafts. It may look a little daunting and difficult in the beginning, but with time it will get easier as anything else. The effort is well worth the time and energy as it will pay dividends both in terms of patient satisfaction and income.
