The FUT method consists of removing a strip of scalp from the donor area which is then sutured. This method results in the formation of a very fine scar about 1 mm wide which is not the case with the FUE method. It consists of removing a strip of scalp from the posterior area of the head in proportion to the follicles to be transplanted. While the margins of the scalp are sutured, an assistant begins to separate the groups of follicular units from the strip. A thin linear scar remains on the sampling site and is covered by the growth of the surrounding hair. The advantage over the FUE technique is that the duration is shorter and the cost is cheaper. The disadvantage is the postoperative discomfort at the sampling site.
