What is FUE
FUE - or Follicular Unit Excision - is a hair transplantation technique that is relatively new compared to FUT. It is a minimally invasive procedure, which involves the transplantation of individual hairs from one area of the scalp to the other. The process consists of individually selecting follicular units from an area of the scalp that has a higher abundance of hair and transplanting it to the problematic area of the head.
There are certain advantages to using the FUE method:
- One of the key advantages of the FUE method is that it does not result in a scar. There might be only minor, dotted scarring or depigmentation in the donor area. Yet, such marks are not detectable to the naked eye, even with a closely shaved head.
- There is less postoperative discomfort after an FUE procedure. It is conducted without any cuts or sutures. This allows for the postoperative period to go without major complications.
- The FUE method allows hair to be transplanted even in the cases of low hair density in the donor area. This is achieved by harvesting individual grafts from the donor area or harvesting from areas of the body with BHT. Areas such as chest, beard, leg/arm and the pubic region can all be harvested for an FUE procedure.
- Grafts transplanted during an FUE hair transplantation procedure consist of a higher number of follicles. This is because the surgeon can selectively target high density, multi follicle FUs made up of 3-4 hair roots. Research shows that the hair/follicle ratio after an FUE procedure conducted by an experienced surgeon is 3, as opposed to the number being 2 for the FUT procedure.
- There are, of course, disadvantages to the FUE procedure as compared to the FUT procedure:
- The procedure takes a longer time, as each graft needs to be harvested individually.
- The number of grafts transplanted in a single FUE session is usually lower than during an FUT procedure.
- The donor area for an FUE procedure needs to be wider and of a higher density.
- The incidence of transection of follicles in an FUE procedure is higher than during an FUT procedure. In a worst case scenario, 10-15% of follicles or more may undergo transection. In the case of an FUT procedure, this number is as low as 3%.
- Grafts are under a lot more stress during an FUE procedure, as there is much less connective tissue surrounding them. This results in more care required for individual hairs to ensure their survival.
- FUE surgeries involve a lot more work from the surgeons and doctors. This results in the price of the procedure being slightly higher as compared to an FUT procedure.

At first I had some nerves surrounding the procedure, however, these were soon gone when reassured by the professional staff. So much so I came back for a second hair transplant. The procedure was painless and was completed on the same day, allowing for visible results with minimal scarring.
