Frequently asked Questions (FAQ)
Which is the best technique for hair transplant - FUE or FUT -
Both techniques are wonderful and in some ways complementary to each other. In this trip technique, a hair bearing strip is taken from the back of the head and is closed with very fine sutures . Disclosure is done in very special way by doctor Gupta in a technique called charged trichophytic closure. We close in a way that he actually growth through the scar and supplement it with PRP injections to remodel the scar give a very natural appearance. In the FUE process the hair sticking out using very fine punches leaves very very small scars but they are spread on the entire back of the head. The result input the techniques is absolutely the same. The recovery is very similar and the need for pain Killers is very similar in both the techniques. The only difference is that in one technique days linear scar and in the other there around punched cards spread throughout the head and in the FUE process we need to shave the entire head. The number of hair follicles that can be extracted the strip technique is much more. In fact in most of the procedures, We combine both the techniques in order to get more hair to achieve logic coverage and better densities.
