Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), or a FUE hair transplant, is a method of extracting hair from the donor area without an incision. Because there is no incision made, FUE hair transplants have achieved popularity in the press due to advantages of FUE that include the obvious – no linear incision on the back of the head.


The Benefits

There is relatively no discomfort experienced in the donor area following FUE hair restoration surgery. However, swelling of the forehead where hair grafts are transplanted can be similar to standard follicular-unit transplantation (FUT) using linear harvesting.

FUE is particularly helpful for those individuals who have active lifestyles and/or wear their hair short where even a very good donor closure could still be visible to the naked eye.

It is also optimal for those who have had multiple sessions with a "linear strip harvest" and no longer have the laxity in the scalp to provide a good closure with minimal scarring.
