FUT vs FUE Hair Transplant?

If you were to get a hair transplant, would you pick FUE or FUT? Another name for FUT is strip hair transplants. FUE is a more recent hair restoration technology.

What is the Difference Between FUE and FUT?

  1. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) scars are small, round and numerous. In contrast, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) strip scars are linear and can stretch or remain minimally visible.
  2. FUE procedures typically take a much longer time than FUT procedures.
  3. FUE is more expensive than FUT on a per graft basis.
  4. In most cases, FUE surgeries involve fewer grafts than FUT surgeries.

It has been a while since the last poll.  Today there are two of them, and both are related to hair transplants: the best currently available option to treat hair loss in both men and women. The first poll below can be taken by both men and women. However, the second one is only applicable to men as far as I know. Only two options for each answer.

Please closely read all the options in the below poll before voting. You can only vote once, and cannot edit your vote.
