How is a hair transplant performed?

There are a number methods for hair transplants.  The traditional strip technique or FUT involves surgically removing a strip of hair from the back of the head. This strip is then sliced under a microscope into fine individual follicular units, hence the name follicular unit transfer FUT.  This method leaves a scar along the back of the head. The FUE or follicular unit extraction technique involves taking the individual follicular unit grafts from the back of the head rather than taking a strip. This can be done manually by a surgeon or by a robot.  Robotic ARTAS hair transplants are the state of the art method of performing hair transplants. The ARTAS system is a highly accurate device that also protects existing hairs.  Mr Soueid is one of a small handful of plastic surgeons that is fully trained in the use of the ARTAS system. He is a co-founder of the exclusive Skin and Follicle clinic in Birmingham where he performs robotic hair transplants.
