Follicular Unit Extraction, or better known as FUE, is among the most modern techniques to fight hair loss. It is a type of surgical hair transplantation but is somehow less invasive. This method involves using precision harvesting tools to take or harvest hair follicles, which are used for the transplant.
Follicular Unit Extraction, like any other surgical hair transplant methods, has its pros and cons. However, compared to other surgical hair transplant techniques, this one has more advantages than disadvantages. It is less-invasive and leaves fewer and relatively smaller scars, unlike other hair transplant procedures that leave you with patches of scars around your head.
One of the disadvantages of FUE is it is a less effectual method compared to Follicular Unit Transplantation or FUT. In FUE, there is a higher risk that the follicles die during the extraction. Another hitch is you will be required to completely shave your head, which is a hindrance to many, but not to others.
Moreover, in spite of the advantages it possesses, FUE is the most common choice among those who are seeking a transplant surgery. It is less-invasive; therefore, patients can go back to their regular activities as soon as possible. Additionally, compared to other methods, you can still wear your hair short after undergoing this type of transplant surgery.
