Why Recommend FUT Not FUE If I Have No Linear Scar?

March 1st, 2013

Q: If I have no linear scar and I can exercise right away, why would you ever recommend FUT instead of FUE?

A: I advise FUT because the grafts are of better quality (less transaction and more support tissue surrounding the follicle) and because more hair can be obtained from the mid-portion of the permanent zone –- which is where the hair is the best quality and most permanent. For the majority of patients a linear scar buried in the donor hair is not an issue. Each patient has to weigh the pros and cons of each procedure when making a decision.
