Sometimes referred to as (follicular unit transplantation) is a type of hair transplant surgery that involves extracting individual hair follicles from a donor part of the body, usually the sides and back of the head.
These individual follicles are then implanted in the areas that are affected. Typically, with the men suffering from male pattern baldness this will be the classic horseshoe area.
What happens in a FUE hair transplant?
In Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), the hair follicles are cut out directly from the back of the head through hundreds to thousands of tiny punch incisions. The surgeon makes tiny holes with a blade or needle in the area of your scalp that's receiving the hair transplant. They gently place hairs in these holes. The survival rate of grafts in an FUE technique is lower than it is with FUT as the accuracy of the punch tool is lower than that of a technician using a microscope.
Advantages of FUE treatment:
.Helps to restore your balding, receding and thinning hair
