Definition: Mosaic Hair Restoration is a specific technique used in Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) hair transplants. FUT involves surgically removing a strip of scalp containing hair follicles (donor area) and transplanting them to bald or thinning areas (recipient area). Mosaic Hair Restoration focuses on replicating the natural follicular unit pattern on the scalp. This pattern involves varying combinations of single, double, and triple hair follicles with unique spacing. Traditional FUT techniques might use uniform groupings of follicles, leading to an unnatural appearance.

May provide a denser and more aesthetically pleasing hair restoration compared to traditional FUT methods.
Requires a skilled and experienced surgeon to precisely design and implement the mosaic pattern.
May not be suitable for everyone depending on the donor area’s characteristics and hair loss pattern.
Still a surgical procedure with inherent risks like scarring and infection.
Traditional FUT with uniform follicular unit placement.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) – involves extracting individual hair follicles instead of a strip of scalp.
Non-surgical hair restoration options like medication and laser therapy.
Recovery Time:
Similar to other FUT procedures, Mosaic Hair Restoration typically requires a week of recovery with minimal downtime.

Mosaic Hair Restoration is an advanced hair transplant technique. Consulting with a board-certified dermatologist or hair restoration surgeon experienced in this method is crucial to understand if it’s the right option and discuss potential risks and limitations.
