I understand that you conduct tests (FOX test) on potential FUE patients to determine their suitability, but do you offer similar tests to FUT patients (e.g. 3 cm x 1 cm excision / ~300 graft mini-HT to ascertain healing quality of recipient and donor areas, donor-strip scar assessment, health of grafts, growth/take of transplants, etc.)?
Unless there is an issue with the patient who has a history of poor wound healing or poor growth, we do not test patients for FUT (follicular unit transplant — also known as “strip method”) surgery. If someone would like a mini hair transplant, that would be another issue.
The FOX Test (for follicular unit extraction / FUE) is only testing 1 to 5 extractions. We do not transplant the grafts unless there is a strong desire expressed by the patient. Thus the FOX test is a very simple 5 to 10 min test which we offer at no cost.
