Follicular Unit Extraction, AKA FUE, is a hair restoration procedure where units of one to four hairs are moved from a region with good hair quality to an area on the scalp lacking hair. A small sharp or dull punch instrument is used to make a tiny incision to remove the hair graft. A technician uses forceps to grip the hair above the skin to extract it. This leaves a tiny scar that is not very noticeable. The grafts are counted and sorted before being placed, via forceps or an implanter, in an incision in the recipient area that follows the natural hair growth pattern. FUE can be performed manually or using computer assistance with Robotic FUE (ARTAS).
