    TLDR Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) can give great results and patient satisfaction when done carefully and by a skilled surgeon.
    In 2008, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) was presented as an advanced surgical technique for treating pattern alopecia, offering natural-looking results by transplanting groups of 1-4 hair follicles. The success of the procedure was noted to depend on the surgeon's skill and careful planning. FUT involved harvesting a scalp strip, dissecting it into follicular units, and implanting them into recipient sites. Postoperative care was important for healing, with hair growth starting around 3-4 months after surgery. For optimal density, patients typically needed 2-3 sessions, with examples given of patients receiving up to 3600 grafts. The document concluded that FUT could provide excellent outcomes with high satisfaction and low morbidity when performed with precision and appropriate patient selection.
