FUE Hair Transplant
The fue hair transplant is the hair transplant procedure with FUE (Follicular unit extraction) technique. The FUE is also called as FT – Follicular Transfer.
It is one of the main methods of attaining the follicular units. In FUE technique, the practitioner will extract the individual follicular units directly from the hair donor area at once. It is different from other techniques like strip-harvesting. In stip-harvesting, a strip of skin is removed from the patient and then inserted into the individual follicular units. The fue hair transplant has been adapted to most modern hair transplant clinics because this improves the good outcome of the hair transplant procedure.
