What Is FUE Hair Transplantation
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the extraction of a unit of hair (follicular unit) from the body (usually the back of the head) and implanting into an area of the head or face. FUE is the most advanced and easiest way to extract hairs from the donor area for a hair transplant.
The other hair transplant technique is the FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) or “strip technique” which requires slicing a section of the skin at the back of the head to extract the hair follicles. This technique carries more risks and always leaves a visible scar. At British Hair Clinic we use the FUE technique only.
