FUT or FUE
Organic Hair Transplantation” is a hair transplantation procedure developed in the Estetik International Laboratories. The “Organic Hair Transplantation” method is a novel development in modern hair transplantation surgery practice which was developed with the efforts of our research and development department. Now; our successful hair transplantation results has evolved to a new era thanks to the “Organic Hair Transplantation” method. We can consider this new method as a revolutionary development.
“Organic Hair Transplantation” is based on injection of a mixture containing adipose derived stem cells obtained from own fat tissue of the patient to the scalp of the patient. The recipient area gets rejuvenated and the viability of transplanted grafts is increased with the effects of adipose derived stem cell injection. The injection of adipose derived stem cells also provides a better work area for the surgeon.
As a general rule you should always begin your hair restoration strategy with FUT

If you keep your hair buzz cut (very short) hair transplant surgery is probably not going to look good.
FUE may be your only option if you want to keep your hair short without having a visible "line" scar.
Note that even with FUE you MAY SEE FUE SCARS if you keep your hair that short. With over 2000 to 3000 grafts you may notice what many describe as a "moth eaten" appearance.

You would need to consider that you probably have about 6000 grafts to move in your lifetime, and what is the best way to maximize the donor hair follicles you have and provide a natural hairline throughout your life.
You may even choose to do a combination of procedures over your lifetime.
If you wear your hair that short, i would definitely recommend starting with FUE. The strip scar may show on the sides above your ears.
