Hair loss is a pervasive and stressful problem that can affect anyone. Of course, we can’t limit this stress just to the issue of hair loss. From the moment you start treatment, you realize that choosing a treatment method has it’s own adventures. You will find a variety of home remedies, pills, solutions and shampoos that promise to stop your hair loss. In the meantime, some people find that they are a good candidate for hair transplant operation and this method is the only permanent treatment for hair loss. They happily continue their search and are just confronted with a new adventure called: Choosing the best method.
It may not be appropriate to use the word best; and it is better to say the “most suitable” method of hair transplantation. The most suitable hair transplant method is the method that brings you the best results and puts the least amount of stress on you. Of course, this equation also applies to all life choices; one side is profit and one side is cost.
The result of hair transplant operation is obvious: filling the hairless areas in a way that restores your beauty and youth. There are many factors involved in cost, from the stress and damage of hair transplants to the financial and time costs. Hair transplantation methods have grown significantly in recent years. Almost all of them are minimally invasive, have excellent results, and have few side effects. That’s why each of them can have great performance in their own place.
At the beginning of this section, we emphasized the phrase: “The most suitable for you.“
The reason for this emphasis is that the best method depends on your condition.
Fortunately, hair transplant techniques are very diverse; and this has made it possible for more hair transplant applicants to receive effective and high-density hair transplants. The main difference between different methods is the technique of graft removal.
Remember that there is a general rule about hair transplants; the better the surgeon can remove the grafts, the better the hair transplant results. Among modern and standard hair transplant methods, FUT method is the oldest and micrograft method is the newest method in Iran. In the following, we want to give a brief explanation about each of the hair transplant methods and examine their advantages and disadvantages. In this way, you can choose the best hair transplant method for yourself by weighing these points.
In the past, when we talked about hair transplants, everyone immediately remembered the tape wounds behind. Tape wound is the main symptom of FUT hair transplantation. In this procedure, the surgeon removes a strip of skin from the skin behind or above your ear. Under a microscope, it then extracts the follicles in the dermis strip and implants them seed by area in the empty areas of the scalp.
When they invented FUT method, it was unrivaled as the best hair transplant method. But with the invention of the FIT method and newer methods such as SUT and Micro FIT, the fans of this method became less; but it is still one of the most effective hair transplant methods in the world.
First of all, you should know that you may hear calling this method the FIT, but it’s is known as FUE in the world; and is the best hair transplant method in the world and of course in Iran. The more correct name of this technique is FUE; it stands for “extraction of follicular units”.
If you remember, we said that in the FUT technique, the surgeon will cut the follicles into strips and then implant them in the form of seeds. In the FIT method, both the removal and the implantation of the follicles are done in a single form or the same grain.
In SUT hair transplantation, they will use an automatic device to extract the grafts. This technique follows the same rules as the FIT method. But using an automatic device speeds up the work.
Micro FIT or MFIT hair transplantation is the latest hair removal technology. This method, like the FIT method, extracts the follicles in a single way. The difference between micro-FIT and other methods is the use of much more precise and delicate tools for hair removal. In general, among the subset methods of FIT method, we can say hat Micro FIT is the best hair transplant method.
The BHT method uses body hair (beard, chest and back). This method is also based on FIT and can also use SUT and MFIT techniques. Specialists use the BHT method to increase the density and improve the results of hair transplants; because the number of grafts that they can remove from the body is very limited. Therefore, choosing this method as the main method of hair transplantation is not suitable and we don’t recommend.
The reason for inventing the FIT method was that the FUT method left scars on the head and we needed local anesthesia to do it. The FIT method was minimally invasive, but it had it’s limitations and disadvantages. Over time, based on the FIT method specialists developed new techniques; this solved the problems of this method and improved it’s limitations. Newer methods are better, faster and more effective; but they are still in the experimental phase and we can’t introduce them as the best method of hair transplantation.
