Traditional and Modern Hair Transplant In Malaysia (FUE and FUT)
Hair transplantation is a surgical method whereby the doctors will take the scalp
from the back of the head and transplant them in the bald area of the patient.
Hair transplant is a procedure to be treated in both men and women. In some circumstances,
some may use hair transplantation to boost hairline in eyebrows and eyelashes or even moustache.
Hair transplantation started out in 1950s with the method call ‘Punch Hair Transplant’ by
Dr. Orentriench to the Follicular Unit Hair Transplant in the year of 1990.
What is Follicular Unit Hair Transplant (FUT)?
The traditional hair transplantation method involves removing tissue from the back of the head.
Then, hair follicles are harvested from the tissue. Then strip by strip is transplanted to
the bald area by professionals.
FUT is a method preferred by physician as they can fully utilise the scalp area for a more natural
and expected hair amount.
What is Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant (FUE)?
The modern hair transplantation is called Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplantation (FUE).
With FUE, transplantation of hair in naturally occurring individual follicular units was established.
Out of the many ways to transplant hair, FUE is one technique which is most patient-friendly.
Despite the process of extracting hair follicles is almost the same in both FUT and FUE, however In FUE,
extraction of unit is dependent on the ‘area of attachment of the arrestor muscle at the back of the hair’
This arrestor muscle is the tightest zone at the back of the head.
Therefore, the follicular unit is narrowest here, a micro punch is needed for this process.
Due to the small and micro processor, the scar resulted is too small to be seen.
By differentiating Follicular Unit Hair Transplant (FUT) and
Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplantation (FUE), many may result in a higher level of discomfort
when is being treated with the
traditional FUT method because when tissue is being removed,
it may resulted in a bad swell. However, both method is very manageable with medication and oil treatments.
AS we said above, FUE is more user friendly because it does not or it leaves
a very tiny scar where it is hard to be recognised. However using the FUT extraction
method it often resulted in a narrow scar at the back of the head.
Normally the scar is approximately 1mm in diameter or more.
Nevertheless, the scar is thin and is easy to be concealed.
If concealing is not used by the patient, the scar will also fade by itself as time goes by.

hair transplantation methods are available out there.
