Modern hair transplant technologies, such as HST and FUE/FUT, offer people an alternative to solve their hair loss problem. They can give them hope and opportunity to regain hair that is dense enough to make them feel more confident and meet their expectations.
This blog post will introduce you to the HST and FUE/FUT method in detail. We will explain their basic principles, give you information about the equipment and medical personnel required for the procedures, and discuss the pros and cons of each technique in depth.
What is an HST graft?
HST is an innovative and highly effective technique for treating hair loss or baldness. Used by trained and experienced doctors, such as the surgeons at Hasci Swiss, it is becoming increasingly popular because it offers patients long-lasting and natural results.
HST, or FUT transplantation, is a very detailed method that involves the extraction of a thin strip of donor tissue that includes healthy, stable hair follicles from a healthy, bushy part of the head. These hair follicles are then transplanted to the location of the missing hair and given post-operative care to promote their growth. Once these hair follicles are transplanted, they adapt perfectly to the donor area, stimulate skin tissue revitalization and take root and grow over the following months.
HST hair transplantation has proven to be a very stable and long-lasting treatment for hair growth and offers a natural and permanent result. Patients finally regain confidence in their image and self-esteem.
What is FUE/FUT?
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) are two hair transplant techniques that are very popular among men and women who are looking to regain a natural and healthy look in their hair.
FUT is done by removing a piece of skin containing hair follicles from the area. Once the skin strip is removed, the follicles are extracted. These follicular units are then transplanted into specific sites using micro blades or devices specifically designed for this procedure.
FUE is a little different: the follicular units are extracted directly from each other, from the existing follicles in the donor area. The dermatologist then makes small holes in the skin and removes the follicle hair by hair.
With the technological advances of the last few years, both techniques are becoming more and more practical and effective in hair transplantation. The choice will depend on the preferences and needs of the patient.
Advantages and disadvantages of HST and FUE/FUT
The advantages and disadvantages of HST and FUE/FUT transplantation are often discussed when patients make the decision to have hair transplantation.
HST offers the advantage of a higher cost effectiveness ratio and is often the best option for mild to moderate cases of hair loss.
FUE and FUT, on the other hand, are known to be more expensive and have a lower success rate, in part due to the use of individual hair removal rather than grouped follicles. Nevertheless, they offer the advantage of lower rates of tissue trauma and generally show more natural and faster results.
Conclusion on HST and FUE/FUT transplants
The HST and FUE/FUT transplant techniques now offer baldness sufferers a permanent and effective solution to restore their appearance and renew their self-confidence. Each of these techniques has its own advantages and disadvantages, but ultimately, it is the patient’s and the doctors’ opinion that should decide which type of transplant is right for them.
