What Is A Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)? How Does This Procedure Differ From A Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)?

A Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) involves the individual removal of follicles for use in the hair transplant procedure. Since the follicles are removed individually, there is no horizontal scar at the donor site as with a Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), but not as many grafts can be implanted during a single session. It is for this reason that this treatment for hair loss is relatively time-intensive.

It is possible, however, to have multiple sessions conducted on subsequent days due to the quicker recovery process. The postoperative timeline is similar to a Follicular Unit Transplant, as patients can expect the transplanted hair to fall out after a few weeks and begin to re-grow after about four months.
