Tag: FUE


Hair transplantation is a type of hair follicle transfer from the dense area (nape and between two ears) to the needed area. Hair transplantation is the most preferred method against hair loss as it is a permanent solution. There are 2 main techniques of extraction which are called FUE and FUT. FUE is the most advanced technique.

What is FUE Technique?

The FUE technique, which is based on the principle of removing grafts one by one from the dense nape region between the two ears, is the most commonly used hair transplantation technique in the world today. The extracted grafts are then implanted into the opened channels and the transplantation process is completed. This method of hair transplantation called the FUE Technique.


What Is Eyebrow Transplant?

Eyebrow transplant, like hair transplants, use existing hair from one area of your body to grow new hair on another. There are two kinds of eyebrow transplants:

Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT): FUT involves the removal of a four-inch-wide slice of scalp from the back of the head. From there, hair is dissected. FUT leaves a scar, although it’s noticeable only if you have a shaved head.
FUE: Involves the use of a machine to suck hair from the scalp. This method doesn’t leave a scar, although it has a lower success rate.
The process itself is composed of removing the hair (either through FUT or FUE); making small incisions in the eyebrows; and planting the follicles. The whole procedure is painless, thanks to local anesthesia.
