Hair Transplant Surgery Procedure Options
- Follicular Unit Transplantation FUT
- Follicular Unit Excision Manual FUE
All hair transplants, regardless of which method of harvesting is performed, FUT, FUE or ARTAS are done to achieve the same results. Fuller hair in the front or crown area of the scalp. It isn’t yet possible to grow your own hair back in a petri dish but we can do some gardening. Which is what hair transplantation currently is, taking hair from the back garden (where hair has naturally lower levels of DHT) and transplanting it to the front, less full , garden (the hair at the front is affected by higher levels of DHT that miniaturise the hair and create thinning and balding).
Hair transplantation today is undetectable and completely natural due to the planting of the grafts (the natural groups of hair in a follicle) and is your to enjoy for a lifetime. At the Knudsen Clinic Melbourne we guarantee all our results.
1. Follicular Unit Transplantation FUT For Hair
Follicular Unit Transplantation is the most popular method of hair restoration on the market today. The method of FUT is a strip of hair from the back of the scalp is taken and then the hair grafts, in their natural groupings, are then planted into the thinning or balding areas at the front and crown of the scalp.
The results of any method of hair transplant, whether its FUT or FUE weighs heavily on the skill of the surgeon and their team. Careful planting and design of the hairline as well as the angle and direction the hairs are planted create natural looking results that are yours to enjoy for a lifetime.
2. Follicular Unit Excision FUE For Hair
Transplant Surgery (Manual FUE)
FUE is another hair transplant option available at the Knudsen Clinic Melbourne. Instead of a strip removal, a small punch is utilised to remove the hair grafts, one by one from the scalp, the implanting of those grafts is performed in the same method as an FUT procedure. FUE is popular with men who wish to keep a very short hair cut.
The myth surrounding FUE is that it is a scar-less surgery and that isn’t correct. FUE results in tiny pinch hole scars instead of a fine line scar that comes from FUT, both are concealed with your hair as it grows back. FUE has gained popularity recently but FUT remains the most common treatment used for hair loss and thinning hair.

To our patients and the general public:
In following the advice of the Australian Government and my Medical Insurers we are announcing a temporary cessation of procedures in all our clinics.
The cessation is currently indefinite, but a time frame will likely become clearer in the coming weeks.
Dr Knudsen and Dr Jayaprakash will continue to consult with patients either in person, or most likely, via telemedicine (FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp depending on your preference).
Patients or the general public may ring the clinic during normal business hours Mon-Fri 0900-1700 to arrange consults or for script repeats as normal.
In the interest of public safety I suggest we try for telemedicine arrangements where possible.
These are challenging times and your safety and health are our utmost concern. We will support you as normal until normal arrangements resume.
Feel free to contact us for any further information.
Dr Russell Knudsen
