What Is FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplantation surgery is far less invasive than traditional strip surgery. There is no use of scalpel or staples or sutures. FUE is far better described as a “procedure” than as a “surgery.” With this technique the donor area is shaved down to the skin so the individual follicular units (FU’s) are exposed. Once the individual follicular units are visible, we can cherry-pick the most ideal FU’s to be extracted. Usually the units with the most follicles are chosen for removal. This allows us to maximize the number of follicles per graft excised. The average number of follicles per graft is considerably greater with this technique than with traditional strip harvesting and microscopic dissection.

Once each follicular unit is extracted it is passed on to technicians so that each graft is then trimmed of excess tissue and rendered to be the perfect size for our custom recipient sites. There are multiple modifications possible with the FUE technique such as unshaven FUE, where only the follicular units to be extracted are shaven and the surrounding hair is left longer. In this way, the entire donor site appears unchanged with no evidence of a procedure apparent. This technique takes longer but offers the advantage of complete undetestability and is suitable for individuals requiring zero postoperative downtime.

While the term FUE seems quite specific–in fact, it has been used to describe any extraction technique that does not involve a scalpel. Any size punch will qualify, be it sharp, dull, manual or motorized.

The longer the punch, the greater the trauma to the scalp and the increased likelihood of donor scarring. Since the whole concept of FUE is to reduce the amount of visible scarring, the use of large punches may actually increase the amount of scarring in the harvest area. As a general rule small, sharp manual punches are able to produce graphs with the least possible trauma to both the graft and the donor area.
