The FUE Hair Transplants method, also known as Follicular Unit Extraction, is a hair transplant method that involves extracting follicular units of hair (or units of 1 to 4 hairs) by making a tiny cut in the skin around each unit, thereby separating and extracting it from the scalp. This follicular unit of hair is harvested along with other units until the surgeon has collected all the units required for transplantation.
The process can be quite tedious as it has to be undertaken with the utmost care and precision. Typically, the wounds left by the extraction of the follicular units are about 1 millimeter each and will heal in a minimal amount of time or, on average, around a week to ten days. The small wounds usually form into tiny white scars at the sides and back of the scalp from where the donor hair is usually taken.
