MicroFUT™ Hair Transplants – Huntsville, Alabama
THE MICROFUT™ hair transplant method was pioneered by the Latham Hair Clinic over 20 years go to provide the highest quality, natural hair transplant results for men women of all hair types. The procedure offers ideal donor hair harvesting with minimal scarring and excellent outcomes, allowing patients to wear their hair as short as they may desire. The procedure gives the doctor total control over the direction, angle, and depth of the transplanted hair, allowing them to grow seamlessly with the patient’s existing hair.
The donor hair is harvested from the back and sides of the head under local anesthesia and transplanted into the thinning area in a totally random pattern mimicking the normal growth of the patient’s own hair. MicroFUT™ hair grafting at the Latham Hair Clinic in Huntsville, Alabama eliminates the need to shave or trim the donor area allowing patients to resume their normal activities much sooner than with traditional hair transplantation.
MicroFUT™ hair transplants is one of the most delicate and refined methods of hair transplantation, offering natural hair transplant results with minimal down time and shortened recovery times. This minimally invasive microsurgical technique differs from standard FUT and FUE hair transplant techniques in that the grafts are harvested from the donor area in such a way as to allow the donor site to heal naturally with virtually no visible scarring.

FUE: Follicular Unit Extraction
In general, two harvesting techniques are used to provide natural results. These are known as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).
With Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), individual hair follicles are carefully removed from areas of normal hair density or areas of undesired hair. This is done with a specialized instrument to delicately extract the individual follicles and minimize injury to the hair.
Once the donor hairs have been removed, the individual follicles are then microscopically inserted into the areas of desired hair growth. Small stab incisions are made in the scalp accommodate the hair follicles. FUE is ideal for patients who wear their hair short and do not wish to have a surgical incision within the hair-bearing scalp. FUE does not require any sutures.
With Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), also known as the strip procedure, a strip of hair is removed from the back of the scalp. Sutures are then used to close this donor site. The incision is meticulously closed to minimize the chance of scarring and/or alopecia (hair loss). This strip of hair is then microscopically dissected by Dr. Ladner’s expert team of hair technicians. This dissection creates individual follicular units similar to the FUE technique, and insertion is performed in an identical fashion.
Hair growth can be seen as early as four months with full results between six and twelve months. Together, with Dr. Ladner, the appropriate surgical plan will be determined. Depending on the individual patient’s needs, the procedure length can vary between 1 and 6 hours. These procedures are generally performed under local anesthesia with oral sedative medications.
