What Is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?

Published on October 29, 2021

Follicular unit extraction is a hair transplant technique that is able to provide results that are natural-looking and long-lasting. A follicular unit refers to a group of one to four hairs along with the glands and nerves they are attached to. During follicular unit extraction, multiple follicular units are extracted from an area of the scalp with an abundance of hairs. The follicular units are carefully removed to ensure they remain intact and alive. The extracted follicular units are then moved and transplanted to the area of the scalp where thinning or balding is occurring. The units are carefully placed so that the results provided look even and natural.
