FUT tomorrow -- anything I should expect?

Recommended Posts

I'll be undergoing FUT tomorrow to address my crown and hopefully fill in my hairline a bit. I've done a pretty thorough read through of all the materials posted on various physicians' websites. I'm just wondering if there's anything that I should expect or that would be useful to know that isn't always obvious or explained beforehand. Thanks!

Who is the clinic ? How many grafts are they going for ? I have had FUT twice. It is all down their skill and closure of it.

I found FUT to be easier than FUE.  They will probably give you something to relax you.  If you can fall asleep - DO IT.

Make sure you have a good breakfast, most people go in to their surgeries without eating, and don't realize you wont eat until late in the afternoon. Definitely best to eat something before you have surgery, even if it is early in the morning.


I do not provide medical advice, recommendations, all responses are my opinion.

I couldn’t sleep the night before. Partly it’s because it’s not my own bed...also the anticipation.. one thing I regret not doing was shave my head....but I simply didn’t know what to expect. You figured you pay about $20k at least give me a good shave other than just shave the middle.. I think clinics should employ a full time barber. I mean barber not a stylist because all they do is shave . Good luck

Thanks for the replies, I read them all before my procedure. I got just over 3100 grafts. I don't know what was worse, the needles or the sound of the donor strip being removed.

Definitely the needles . I had over 80 needles , at least it felt that way. And I’m the guy that’s afraid of getting a flu shot, so it tells you how much I wanted hair

I don't really remember the shots for FUT, but the shots for FUE were horrible.
