Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is a minimally invasive hair transplantation procedure. This is one of the most chosen hair transplantation technique and over the past years its popularity has increased significantly.

How is FUE performed?

FUE  implies the individual removal of the follicular units and individual transplantation to the patient's thinning area. The surgeon removes the grafts using an automated extraction tool after the patient's hair has been cut short for better visibility of the scalp. Each follicular unit graft has 1, 2, 3 or 4 hairs, as they occur naturally in the scalp.  Usually the grafts are extracted from the back and the sides of the scalp.

Each follicular unit graft is carefully placed into the tiny holes made by the surgeon in the thinning area of the scalp using various devices such as the Hans implanter or the Choi implanter pen.
