Follicular Unit Transplantation

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is also known as STRIP surgery.

In this method, a part of the scalp from the donor area (back of the head) is removed surgically and donor wound is closed. The end result is a very fine scar on the back of the head which is well-hidden in the hair.

Dr Ahmad’s technique of Strip harvesting (Scissors technique) and wound closure is well established and published in the international journals.


The strip surgery involves various steps which are performed with extreme care.

1. Marking of the donor area

2. Checking the mobility of the donor area  

3. Painless local anaesthesia infiltration

4. Strip removal

5. Stitching of the wound 


    1.  The wound healing takes about 2 – 3 weeks. The stitches are removed after 10 – 12 days. The scar maturation is complete in about 6 months. Normally the scar is minimally visible but varies from patient to patient.
