Comparing FUE & FUT Hair Transplants

Options for Everyone Unmatched Results

Two Distinguished Procedures

Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™

Transplant Type 1: Double the Density

MUHG hair transplant
Description

For patients who want  the most hair possible at the most affordable price, MUHG is the best choice.   This trademarked technique is We Grow Hair’s preferred procedure and was developed to give patients soft, natural-looking results along with maximum density ( as much as 6,000 – 8,000 hairs in a single procedure).

  • Unmatched Density / More Hair
  • Ideal for Large Cases
  • Customized, Natural Results
  • Best Value / Less Expensive
  • Pain-Free
  • Permanent Results
  • Least Follicle Destruction
  • Shorter Procedure
  • Quick Recovery
  • Optimal Donor 
  • Hard-to-find Suture Line

ARTAS Robotic FUE

Transplant Type 2: No Linear Scar

Kurt ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant
Description

If patients do not have significant hair loss and they wish to avoid a linear scar, they may be a candidate for FUE.   We chose this robotic technique because it is the most advanced Follicular Unit Extraction procedure available in the industry.

  • Most Scientifically Advanced FUE
  • Ideal for Smal Cases
  • Only “True” Robotic HairTransplant
  • No Linear Scar
  • Eliminates Human Error & Fatigue
  • Precision and Accuracy
  • Little Downtime
  • Fastest/Shortest FUE Procedure
  • Less Follicle Destruction than other FUE procedures

Difference in Harvesting Technique

Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™

This is how the donor area looks one day after an MUHG procedure.  Surrounding hair conceals the suture line. It takes approximately 10 days for the suture line to completely heal.

FUT Scar is hard to find
Fine Linear Suture Line

ARTAS Robotic FUE

This is how the donor area looks after an FUE procedure.  Hair must be shaved to harvest follicles. For this reason women don’t typically choose FUE. In approximately 1 week redness subsides an hair begins to grow back.

Trichophytic Closure Produces a Fine Suture Line.

This patient had a Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ procedure first, followed by a very small ARTAS procedure later.  While shaving the donor area for the ARTAS procedure, we had the rare opportunity to photograph how fine an MUHG suture line really is.  The line is so fine because of a special technique called a Trichophytic Closure. Even when a patient’s hair is short in the back, this suture line is relatively easy to hide.

FAQs about FUT vs. FUE

We want what's best for our patients.   Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ gives patients twice as much hair, which is more satisfying, and the results are soft and natural-looking.  When our patients are happy, we are happy.

When compared to FUT, all FUE procedures harvest less hair, even ARTAS Robotic FUE.  With FUE, each follicle is painstakingly harvested one at a time, limiting the number of hairs that can be gathered in a single session.  It's interesting to note that due to our trademarked harvesting technique, MUHG outperforms both FUE and all other FUT techniques. 

The main reason for choosing FUE over FUT is to avoid a suture line, which means no linear scar and a quicker recovery.  

An ARTAS procedure is faster, it harvests hair more evenly due to an advanced algorithm, it creates less transection (hair destruction), and the staff is less fatigued because it is robotic.
