What is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?
FUE makes it possible to transplant individual hair follicles without a scalpel, without the excision of a strip of skin and without the need for stitches.
The hair is selected from a donor area, for example the back of the head or the body, and extracted under local anesthetic. The grafts are then removed one by one with each graft encapsulated in a small cylinder of skin.
The surgeon then makes tiny incisions in the recipient area and determines the thickness and direction of the new hair. The grafts are then inserted, again under local anesthetic.
The transplant looks entirely natural and the new hair is as strong and healthy as it was before being transplanted.
