Follicular unit extraction, or FUE, is an advanced hair restoration treatment that can restore your natural hair. While different procedures may work better for some people, FUE offers many advantages to other types of hair transplant surgeries, which is why it's one of the fastest-growing hair restoration treatments.
A more natural look
FUE differs from traditional hair transplants in that individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area and implanted in the bald area. Other treatments involve taking entire strips from the donor area. This is an advantage for FUE because the placement of individual hair follicles helps to create a more full, natural look when the new hair grows in.

No linear scarring
Since the doctor extracts individual follicles in a FUE procedure, the surgery leaves no visible scarring behind. Using a strip method can leave a linear scar in the donor area. Not only is the lack of a scar great for cosmetic reasons, but it also makes recovery much quicker. Since there is no visible scarring after the treatment, FUE is a great option for men who like to wear their hair short.
More donor options
Since FUE involves extracting single follicles at a time, this opens up the possibilities for donor areas. Strip procedures require the back of the scalp as a donor area. If this isn't possible, a FUE procedure can still proceed with hair from other donor areas on the patient's body.
