Question:

What is FUE hair transplant surgery?

Answer:

The latest hair transplant technique is called follicular unit extraction (FUE). Unlike the traditional technique, known as follicular unit transplant (FUT) or strip harvesting, involving removing a strip of the scalp where follicles are plentiful, with FUE each follicular unit is removed one at a time. While FUE avoids the linear scar from the donor site and allows for a quicker recovery period, it is a more time consuming process with some procedures lasting up to eight hours, which can cause fatigue in the most experienced surgeons.
