Maximum Harvesting Technique​

MHT (Maximum Harvesting Technique)

In the ever-evolving world of hair restoration, the hunt for the perfect solution to extreme baldness has led to the emergence of cutting-edge techniques that promise to deliver not just results but life-changing transformations. Among these pioneering techniques stands the Maximum Harvesting Technique (MHT), a brilliant fusion of the traditional Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and the modern Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) methods. Curated by India’s leading hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Shaiil Gupta, MHT has been hailed as the ultimate solution for those with the most challenging cases of baldness, offering discreet, dense, and incredibly successful hair transplant results.

The Evolution of Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation has come a long way since its inception. Initially, FUT, commonly referred to as the “strip method,” was the go-to technique. It involved removing a strip of scalp from the donor area, dissecting it into individual grafts, and then transplanting them into the balding areas. While FUT was effective, it had its drawbacks, including a linear scar, longer recovery times, and a risk of nerve damage.

FUE, on the other hand, revolutionized the field by introducing a minimally invasive approach. Individual hair follicles were extracted one by one from the donor area, leaving no visible linear scar. This method reduced downtime and improved the overall patient experience. However, FUE had limitations when it came to harvesting a high number of grafts efficiently, especially for individuals with extensive baldness.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for FUT Procedure?

Men with androgenic alopecia are the best candidate for FUT. A good candidate for FUT surgery is:

  • More than 25 years as loss pattern is less predictable in younger people
  • Men with the Norwood pattern or the M shape of hair loss tend to respond best to hair transplantation
  • FUT can be used to treat (receding hairline) as well as high grade baldness. 
  • Scarring alopecia because of injury, burns or skin diseases like lichen planus or pseudopelade can be treated with FUT. 
  • Beard restoration & eyebrow restoration can be other indications of FUT. 
  • FUT can be used to repair botched up hair transplants (previous FUE or even FUT).
  • Long hair transplant is another type of FUT, where the social downtime is further minimized & long hair are implanted in the recipient sites.

The Birth of MHT

Recognizing the strengths and weaknesses of both FUT and FUE, Dr. Shaiil Gupta set out to create a technique that combined the best of both worlds. The result was MHT – Maximum Harvesting Technique. MHT aims to achieve maximum graft harvesting while ensuring optimal graft viability, making it the go-to choice for individuals with severe baldness.

The Fusion of FUT and FUE

MHT works by seamlessly integrating the key features of FUT and FUE:

  • Graft Harvesting: In MHT, a strip of scalp is carefully removed using the FUT method. This strip allows for the harvesting of a large number of grafts in a single session, making it ideal for extreme baldness cases. This step ensures that an ample supply of grafts is available for transplantation.
  • Graft Extraction: The harvested strip is then meticulously dissected to obtain individual follicular units, maintaining their integrity. This process is similar to FUE, ensuring that grafts remain viable and healthy.
  • Transplantation: The individual grafts are transplanted into the recipient area using the FUE technique. This precise and minimally invasive approach guarantees natural-looking results with minimal scarring.

Advantages of MHT Over Individual Techniques

  • Maximum Grafts: MHT’s combination of FUT and FUE allows for the harvesting of an unparalleled number of grafts in a single session. This is a game-changer for individuals with advanced baldness, as it ensures complete coverage.
  • Optimal Graft Viability: By carefully preserving the quality of grafts during the harvesting and extraction process, MHT maximizes the chances of successful graft survival and hair regrowth.
  • Ultra-Discreet Results: MHT leaves minimal scarring, making it virtually undetectable even with shorter haircuts. This discreetness is a significant advantage over the visible linear scar associated with traditional FUT.
  • Speedy Recovery: While MHT combines two techniques, the recovery time is surprisingly fast, thanks to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure.
