Like Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) restores hair loss by moving follicles from a donor area to another location where hair loss is a concern. However, the method for removing follicles is different in an FUE, as we are able to take individual follicles from the donor area! During FUE, follicles are retrieved with a small circular punch. Your follicles will be carefully extracted before all grafts are harvested and then implanted at the recipient site. The circular punch tool is roughly the diameter of a pencil point. Its small size reduces scarring risks – in most cases, no visible scarring takes place.
