The state-of-the-art transplant practice should be able to provide both types of procedures. In my office, because both FUT and FUE methods are available, I feel that I can offer my patients a more reasonable evaluation of their needs. I don’t favor one over the other, because the results are similar. I try to offer a clear and simple explanation of what’s involved with the two approaches and allow the patient to decide.
Patients’ decisions are based on the kinds of hair styles they may desire now and in the future, the comfort factor that favors FUE and the relative cost that often favors FUT.
