The FUE method is a hair transplant method in which the doctor extracts follicular units of hair one by one, from the donor area of your head. The doctor will punch tiny incisions around a hair follicle before extraction. They will do this using a small microneedle. Each follicular unit contains one to four hairs. These follicular units are then transplanted into the balding areas of your head. After the surgeon prepares the graft, they will clean and numb the recipient area. The surgeon then makes small holes or slits with a punch or scalpel. They will then place individual grafts in each hole.
