What is FUE?

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a modern hair transplantation technique that involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area of the scalp and transplanting them to the recipient area where hair growth is desired. It is a minimally invasive procedure that has gained popularity due to its natural-looking results and shorter recovery time compared to traditional hair transplant methods.

During the FUE procedure, specialized devices are used to remove individual follicular units from the donor area, typically located at the back or sides of the scalp, where hair is genetically resistant to balding.

After the extraction, the surgeon makes small incisions in the recipient area. Each extracted follicular unit is then carefully placed into these incisions, aligning them with the natural hair growth pattern to create a natural appearance.

FUE is a preferred choice for patients who want to avoid linear scars associated with the older strip harvesting technique (Follicular Unit Transplantation – FUT).

The recovery period for FUE is generally faster compared to FUT, and there is minimal postoperative discomfort. However, it’s essential to follow the aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing and hair growth.

As with any medical procedure, it is crucial to consult with a hair transplant surgeon to determine the best treatment approach for individual needs and goals.
