Follicular Unit Extraction, commonly referred to as FUE, is the modern technique of hair restoration. FUE is a minimally invasive hair restoration option that demands skill and precision to achieve the best result. FUE is favoured amongst patients with minimal hair loss, or those who are looking to avoid the Scarring from FUT.
Signature Clinic appreciate, understand and treat a hair transplant like any other organ transplant, it’s important to be mindful that that hair transplant grafts are effectively “living organs”. Therefore, the time they spend outside of the body must be kept to a minimum to ensure graft survival, health and natural results post transplant.
Our surgeons are highly competent with a repertoire of before/afters for patients to view. A common concern when considering FUT is a very large scar. We pride ourselves in a clean transplant, with a pencil like scar.
FUE has been touted to be “scarless”, which is patently false. There are scars but if done well should be very hard to detect even with hair that is very short. That is the real advantage of FUE, i.e., hair can be worn very closely shorn and in most cases the tiny white dots (the scars) cannot be seen to the naked eye unless one brushes one’s fingers across the scalp.
In short, most patients will opt for FUE over FUT in regards to scarring limitations, a less invasive procedure or for those who do not wish to shave the donor region.
