A FUT hair transplant is a surgical procedure that involves removing a strip of hair with tissue, harvesting the hair follicles from this tissue, and then surgically implanting the follicles into areas of hair thinning or balding.
Meshkin Medical specializes in hair restoration procedures and uses the latest tools and techniques for FUT hair transplant, including:
The Trichophytic closure technique maximizes donor hair retrieval and minimizes scarring. Meshkin Medical finds this technique more efficient for patients who are young, have little hair, or have curly or densely packed hair.
MFUT allows the team at Meshkin Medical to transplant thousands of hair follicles in one or two sessions using the lateral micro-slit grafting technique.
Using a high-powered microscope, your hair transplant expert divides the donor strip into its natural follicular unit and then detects and removes excess tissue. The specialist then uses small, customized needles to implant hair follicles close together and in their natural orientation.
FUT hair transplant is one of the hair restoration treatments for male-pattern baldness, which tends to cause hair loss along the hairline at the forehead and temples. Female-pattern baldness, on the other hand, most often affects hair growth in the part or center of the scalp.
A FUT hair transplant works best in people with a loss of hair at the front of the head (receding hairline) and isn’t recommended if hair loss is in the center of the scalp.
The experts at Meshkin Medical conduct a thorough hair restoration evaluation before making any treatment recommendations. They’re the best in the field and highly skilled at performing the most advanced hair restoration procedures.

A FUT hair transplant is an outpatient procedure. Your provider uses a local anesthetic to numb the area and can talk to you about other sedation options to help you relax. However, you remain awake for the procedure.
Your specialist removes the donor strip of hair, prepares the hair follicles, and places each follicle into the scalp.
