Stem Cell Assisted Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
Until we reach the “Holy Grail” of growing hair in bald scalp without surgery (hair multiplication), the natural bridge between traditional FUT and FUE hair transplantation is Bio-Enhanced transplantation or “using your own cells to enhance the result of all phases of the procedure”.
Bio-Enhanced FUT and FUE incorporate the use of biologics to heal faster, yield hair sooner, denser and also promote the growth of the non-transplanted hair.
Recent published studies in the Journal of Dermatologic Surgery, Oct 2013,verify that the use of high levels of growth factors from PRP with hair cells “yield hair sooner” and “denser” when compared to controls when no growth factors are used.
WHAT is Stem Cell ASSISTED FUT™?
Greco Medical Group has developed a proprietary way to utilize the adipose or fat tissue from your donor tissue, which is rich in stem cells, to promote rapid healing of the donor site and increase the yield and density of transplanted hairs.
Phase 1: Stem cells from the fat in your donor tissue are transferred back into your donor site promoting rapid healing and producing an almost undetectable donor incision.
Phase 2: During the surgical procedure all follicular units are then bathed in your regenerative cell culture medium to nourish the follicles and promote a higher yield of transplanted hairs.
Phase 3: The enriched cells are injected into the transplanted area to promote faster healing, to improve the quality and aesthetic density of your existing non-transplanted hair.
The patient below is 10 months post Stem Cells Assisted FUT.
What’s the bottom line for patients considering FUT?
While there are advantages and disadvantages with both FUT and FUE procedures it is critical that the the procedure fits the patients goals and expectations and not what the surgeon or the clinic is marketing.
The main advantage of FUT is that more hair can be moved in one session so patients who want more density over a larger area of hair loss would benefit with this procedure and FUT is also less expensive.
On the other hand, FUT requires a srtip of donor tissure. One of the fears patients have regarding hair transplantation is donor site scaring, but bio-enhanced hair transplantation by someone “skilled in surgical technique and in the art of biologics” can provide an almost undetectable scar.
“The UNDETECTABLE DONOR SITE”
The human body heals with a scar regardless if the donor tissue is taken by FUE or FUT. Scientific evidence demonstrates that the sooner a wound heals the less scaring you will have. Greco Medical Group has developed a proprietary way to use the fat tissue (fat) from your donor site, rich in stem cells, to heal the donor site faster producing an undetectable donor site.
