How the FUE Procedure Works

Almost all patients value the natural aesthetic effect with automated FUE. In comparison to the linear strip process, FUE does not need the surgical removal of a portion of the scalp that potentially results in a donor linear scar at the back of the scalp. Instead, FUE uses your own natural hair follicles without using a scalpel, sutures or staples.

The most desired aspects of FUE is the noninvasive naturalness of the surgery, quicker recovery times, and no linear donor scar at the donor site. The FUE procedure is repeated until the hair transplant surgeon has gain enough follicular units for the delineation hair restoration.

This process can take one or more hours and in large sessions, may be completed over two consecutive days. The donor wound is nearly 1 millimeter in size, it will completely and fully heal over the course of seven to ten days, leaving little white blemish buried in the hair in the back and sides of the scalp. Follicular Unit Extraction is an instrument dependent procedure; therefore, the type of instrument used for this procedure significantly affects its result. In fact, the development of increasingly improve extraction instruments has closely paralleled with heighten in this particular procedure.
