The only limiting factor for a hair transplant is the amount of available donor hair each patient has. The number of grafts that can be taken during a Follicular Unit Transplantation “FUT” transplant is affected by the flexibility of the scalp in the donor region, i.e. at the back and sides of the head. The more flexible the scalp, the easier it is for the surgeon to close the suture line. This means that it should heal better and should result in a smaller scar.

We recommend that patients undergoing an FUT procedure carry out a scalp massage twice a day for as long as possible prior to the procedure.

These videos demonstrate the scalp massage technique. If you have any questions about scalp massage, please do not hesitate to contact the clinic.

Note that for patients undergoing a Follicular Unit Extraction “FUE” transplant, there is no need to carry out scalp massage exercises.
