A hair transplant can be life-changing for those suffering from significant hair loss or baldness. One of the most influential and popular techniques is the follicular unit transplantation (FUT) method offered by Beverly Hills Hair Restoration. This refined hair restoration procedure provides remarkably natural-looking results that can transform your appearance and self-confidence.
What is FUT Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplants FUT, also known as strip harvesting transplants, involve extracting a strip of tissue from the back of the scalp where the hair is densely packed. This donor strip is dissected to isolate individual follicular units typically containing 1-4 hairs. The harvested follicles are meticulously transplanted into the balding areas of the scalp in a strategic pattern to simulate natural hair growth.
FUT is considered an advance over older hair transplantation techniques because it transplants individual follicular units. Transplanting the follicles in their naturally occurring groupings enables preserving your natural hair orientation and density.
Benefits of FUT Hair Transplants
Some of the benefits that make FUT a top hair restoration method include:
- High graft survival rate – Over 90% of transplanted follicles successfully take hold and grow. This leads to maximal fullness.
- Natural-looking results – FUT allows hair to be artistically angled and arranged for natural hairlines and coverage.
- Efficient use of grafts – Follicular units allow optimal use of the finite donor hair for coverage.
- Versatility – FUT can restore hairlines, fill thinning areas, cover scar tissue, and more.
- Permanent solution – The transplanted hair is genetically resistant to balding, so results are lifelong.

FUT Hair Transplant Procedure
The FUT procedure is performed under local anesthesia in our surgery center. The basic steps include:
- Removal of donor strip – A thin strip of tissue is taken from the donor area on the back of the scalp. The incision is carefully closed using trichophytic closure to minimize any visible scarring.
- Dissection of grafts – The donor strip is meticulously dissected to isolate the individual follicular unit grafts that will be transplanted.
- Creating recipient sites – Tiny recipient sites are made in the balding areas where the grafts will be placed.
- Graft placement – Using microblades and forceps, the surgeon delicately transplants each graft into the recipient sites. Density and angling are customized for natural growth patterns.
- Recovery – After the procedure, the scalp is bandaged to protect the grafts while they heal. Stitches are removed 10-14 days later. Most patients experience minor swelling, crusting, or numbness, which resolves within weeks.
- Growth of new hair – Transplanted follicles enter a resting phase and shed. New hair typically starts to grow back around 3-4 months later and continues improving.
Is FUT Right for You?
FUT hair transplantation is an excellent option for both men and women suffering from:
- Receding hairlines
- Thinning crowns
- Diffuse unpatterned alopecia
- Scarring from injuries or procedures
It’s essential to have realistic expectations about the transplantation process. FUT transplants hair you already have more densely into areas of balding. It does not stop future hair loss. Some patients may require multiple procedures over time as hair loss progresses.
The cost of FUT hair transplants depends on how many grafts are needed to achieve your desired fullness. The average price ranges from $4,000 to $15,000.
