Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a hair transplant procedure in which the surgeon extorts the follicular units of hair one by one, from the donor area of your head. Each unit contains one to four hairs, which are usually called follicular unit grafts. These grafts are then transplanted into the balding areas of your head. Hence, in this procedure, the surgeon doesn’t have to make a long incision in the donor area, as in the other procedures. This procedure is recommended for patients who have a tight scalp or have previously undergone other transplant procedures had got little or no success.
