Does a FUT Hair Transplant Hurt

Hair loss among men is very common and embarrassing. Hair loss makes a person look more mature and aged. Baldness is something that is considered a dreaded phenomenon. 

People try everything, from oils to various alternative medicines. But, they don’t understand that baldness is most of the time genetic in nature. The genes are responsible for patterned baldness over the person’s head.

However, if you want to regrow hair back on your hair, a hair transplant surgery is considered to be the safest and the best surgery for this purpose.

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which a plastic surgeon transplants hair from a donor site to the balding area of the head. The surgeon usually transplants hair from the backside or temporal sides of the head to the front or top of the head where the hair is thinning. 

Causes of hair loss at a young age

Besides genes, there are several other factors which cause hair loss such as-

Poor diet

stress and anxiety

Infection or illness leading to depletion of nutrients

hormonal imbalance leading to low levels of Testosterone

medications leading to hair fall and ultimately to baldness 

Hair Transplant surgery techniques

There are various methods employed in a hair transplant surgery like-

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation​)

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)

Combination (FUT+FUE)

Robotic hair transplant

Bio-synthetic Hair Transplant

Long hair transplant

Before the initiation of a hair transplant surgery, the surgeon numbs the site of the surgery using anesthesia. During the whole procedure, the person doesn’t feel even a small amount of pain.

FUT hair transplant technique

The surgeon makes use of a scalpel (medical knife) to cut out a strip of the skin from either the back of the head or any other area which is acting as a donor site. The length of the incision varies accordingly​. 

This area is then stitched back by the surgeon.

The surgeon then breaks down the removed portion of the scalp into very small sections known as grafts using a surgical knife. 

The next process is the same as that of an FUE hair transplant technique.

These grafts are implanted over the area of the baldness.

FUE hair transplant technique

In follicular unit extraction (FUE) the hair follicles are cut out directly from the donor area like the back of the head in the form of thousands of minute incisions.

The surgeon creates very small holes using a blade or needle in the area of the scalp where the hair transplantation is to be done.

The surgeon then implants hair follicles in these holes.

During one treatment session, a surgeon may transplant hundreds to thousands of hair on the balding site.


After the surgery, the person may feel soreness at the site of the surgery. He may be asked to take some medicines such as analgesics to reduce the pain post-surgery, Anti-inflammatory to reduce the inflammation and swelling after the surgery, and antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection post-surgery as it is an invasive surgery. 

The pain felt post-surgery is totally dependent upon the pain bearing capacity of the person. This is a highly subject variable. Many people may feel nothing while some may feel intense pain. So, categorizing any technique as a painful procedure is not completely right. In any process, the person may or may not feel the pain. What people experience is a slight discomfort as the person is awake during the whole procedure and the person actually feels something being inserted. The redness caused post-surgery is the body’s reaction to the equipment and the surgical procedure. However, there are cases where the surgery is not a successful one due to various causes like-

Inexperienced doctor

Outsource rather than going to some clinic/hospital

Inaccuracy performed during the surgery.
