What Is Strip FUE & FUT, and How Does It Work?

FUE & FUT are advanced hair restoration techniques that provide effective solutions for individuals experiencing hair loss. In the Strip FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) method, a strip of hair-bearing skin is surgically removed from the donor area, typically the back of the head, and then meticulously divided into individual follicular units, which are transplanted to the balding areas. On the other hand, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) involves the direct extraction of individual hair follicles from the donor area without the need to remove a strip of scalp, offering a less invasive option with minimal scarring. Both methods are designed to achieve natural-looking results, with the choice of technique depending on the patient’s hair loss pattern, scalp elasticity, and personal preferences. At Iorio Plastic Surgery & Medspa, these procedures are tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient, ensuring a personalized approach to hair restoration.

What Is ARTAS Robotic FUE & FUT, and How Does It Work?

The ARTAS Robotic FUE & FUT represents a significant leap forward in hair transplant technology, combining precision robotics with advanced digital imaging to enhance the results of hair restoration surgery. Utilizing state-of-the-art robotic and AI technology, the ARTAS system accurately identifies and selects the best hair follicles for transplantation, ensuring a minimally invasive procedure with no linear scarring. During the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) process, each hair unit is meticulously harvested with robotic precision, preserving the natural look of the donor area and improving the overall appearance of the transplant site. At Iorio Plastic Surgery & Medspa, Dr. Iorio leverages the ARTAS system to provide patients with exceptionally natural-looking hair restoration results, minimizing downtime and enhancing recovery.

Benefits of Hair Transplants

Natural-Looking Results

Hair transplants utilize your own hair, ensuring that the texture and color match perfectly for a seamless, natural appearance.

Permanent Solution to Hair Loss

Once transplanted, the hair follicles are genetically resistant to balding, offering a long-lasting solution to hair loss.

Improved Self-Esteem and Confidence

Restoring a fuller head of hair can significantly boost self-image and confidence, positively impacting personal and professional interactions.

Minimal Maintenance

Transplanted hair functions just like natural hair, requiring no special maintenance beyond regular washing, styling, and grooming.

Cost-Effective in the Long Term

Though the initial investment may seem significant, hair transplants eliminate the need for ongoing, costly treatments for hair loss, proving economically advantageous over time.

What Is Manual FUE & FUT, and How Does It Work?

Manual FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) are cornerstone techniques in the field of hair restoration, offering precise and natural-looking outcomes. In Manual FUE, individual hair follicles are meticulously extracted one at a time from the donor area using a specialized handheld device, allowing for precise placement and minimizing scarring. Conversely, Manual FUT involves removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from the back of the scalp, from which individual follicular units are then isolated and transplanted to the thinning areas. These manual methods rely on the skill and artistry of the surgeon, requiring an in-depth understanding of hair growth patterns to achieve results that blend seamlessly with the patient’s natural hair. At Iorio Plastic Surgery & Medspa, these techniques are performed with the highest level of care to restore not only hair but also confidence and self-image.
