Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) is an innovative surgical technique used in hair transplantation procedures. Here’s a breakdown of the process and key points:

  • Harvesting Technique: FUE involves harvesting individual follicular units from the donor area, typically the sides and back of the scalp, where hair is more resistant to balding. Unlike traditional methods like Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), which involves removing a strip of scalp, FUE extracts individual follicular units one by one.
  • Procedure: During the procedure, a surgeon uses a small, sharp instrument (typically about 0.9 mm in diameter) to carefully extract each follicular unit, which may contain one to three hair follicles.
  • Implantation: Once harvested, these follicular units are meticulously implanted into the recipient areas experiencing hair loss. The surgeon makes microscopic incisions at precise angles to mimic the natural growth pattern of the patient’s hair.
  • Results: With skilled surgical technique, FUE can produce natural-looking results, particularly in recreating a natural hairline and covering areas of baldness or thinning hair. However, it’s important to note that FUE cannot achieve the original hair density because the donor hair is limited.
  • Scarring: FUE leaves tiny circular scars in the donor area, which are typically less noticeable than the linear scar left by FUT. This makes FUE a preferred option for individuals who prefer to keep their hair very short after the procedure. However, if too many FUE extractions are performed, the cumulative effect of multiple scars can become noticeable, especially when the hair is kept very short.
  • Limitations: While FUE offers advantages in terms of minimal scarring and the ability to wear short hair styles post-surgery, it’s important for patients to have realistic expectations. There is no perfect solution, and trade-offs may exist depending on individual circumstances.

Overall, FUE is a valuable option for hair restoration, but it’s crucial for patients to consult with a qualified surgeon and understand the potential benefits and limitations of the procedure before making a decision.



No-shave FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair restoration offers several benefits compared to traditional hair transplant procedures where the donor area is shaved. Here are some of the advantages:

  • Discreetness: One of the primary benefits is the ability to undergo the procedure without having to shave your head completely. This means that you can maintain your existing hairstyle without any noticeable changes during the recovery period.  By avoiding the need to shave the donor area, the procedure allows for a more natural-looking outcome since the existing hair helps to camouflage any temporary redness or scabbing that may occur after the surgery.
  • Minimal downtime: No-shave FUE typically involves minimal downtime compared to traditional FUE, as there is no need to wait for the donor area to heal before resuming normal activities. This can be particularly advantageous for individuals with busy schedules who cannot afford to take time off work or other commitments.
