What is Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE) Hair Transplant?
Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, hair transplant is a harvesting method of hair transplant surgery.
Many consider FUE a minimally invasive method because a small “punch” is used to harvest single hair grafts one at a time.
The result is hundreds or thousands of round “holes” where the donor hair follicles are taken.
How does it work?
The doctor will harvest the grafts from the donor area.
Once those are processed and ready, they will transplant them to the receiving area.
The process requires precision and attention to detail, so don’t expect to be in and out quickly.
How long your procedure takes will depend on how many grafts your procedure requires and the technology used to harvest and transplant them.
Am I a good candidate?
If you are interested in hair transplant surgery, the FUE harvesting method may be one of your primary considerations since it is advertised as a no scar,no pain,no damage to the grafts surgery.
