What’s up with this new trendy “ultra refined” FUT? Accordingly to the clinics using this improvement of FUT, follicles are packed denser due to smaller incisions and transplants. Is this improvement really necessary and couldn’t it lead to a greater amount of lost transplants?
I have been doing this for years, so it is not all that new anymore. Many, many other doctors are late catching on, but it works well. Perhaps that is why it is “new” to some physicians.
In this follicular unit transplantation (FUT) technique, the use of smaller needles and better prepared grafts allow the placement of grafts closer together. The density of the grafts do reflect more fullness in the final results. I didn’t coin (nor do I use) the term ‘ultra-refined‘, but it sounds like a good descriptive tag. Most of the patients on our website have had this technique done.
Trendy? I guess so. I suppose it can be compared to the old days when the automobile replaced the horse/buggy, which I would call trendy in the early days.
