FUE is the abbreviation of “Follicular Unite Extraction”. It is the process of removing hair follicles from scalp and the appropriate hairy parts of the body one by one as follicular units using a micro motor equipped with special punch tips with a diamater of 0.6-0.7 without any incision marks and stitches. Extracted follicles are transplanted by specialists to the channels they open in areas without hair. FUE has become the only preferred method as it does not leave any visible marks in the donor area.
Follicular units (grafts) are removed from the back and side parts of scalp and from the chest area if necessary and transplanted in the area wished to have hair. It is carried out by performing local anesthesia on the donor and receiver areas. It is a stitch-free, painless method that does not leave any marks on the skin. 5.500- 6.000 graft transplantations (this number corresponds to about 12,000-13,000 strands) can be performed in one session.
