Follicular Unit Extraction FUE
Follicular unit extraction (FUE), often referred to as the follicular transfer (FT), is one of two main methods of obtaining follicular units (groups of one to four hairs on the head) for hair transplantation.
Another similar method is known as the strip harvesting. In FUE harvesting, separate follicular units are extracted directly from the hair restoration patient’s donor area, usually one at a time.
This is different from strip-harvesting because, in strip harvesting, a strip of skin is removed from the patient and then disarranged into many separate follicular units.
The follicular units obtained by any of these two methods are the basic building blocks of follicular unit transplantation (FUT).
Using this technique, each individual follicular unit (FU) is being taken directly from the scalp, rather than from a strip of donor tissue that has been removed from the scalp (See FUT).
There are many advantages and disadvantages attributed to either of these techniques.
In general, FUE involves no suturing as well as considerably less post-operative discomfort.
But it has mostly gained popularity amongst those who often wish to have short haircuts, that are less than 2mm in length.
That’s because, as opposed to the classical “strip” technique, it does not leave a linear scar in the donor area of a patient’s scalp.

What our patients say
I’ve always been afraid of what an effect aging will have on my hair… Eventually, starting at the age of 35 I began to lose my hair on the forehead…Now I feel myself young again, all thanks to this clinic’s budget prices and an awesome quality!David Cameron
Since I’ve retired, my balding process became a real grievance for me (as a 60’s kid I’ve always used to have long hairdos)… But as soon as my friend recommended me this hair renewal clinic, I signed up for the treatment and after that I’ve never felt happier!John Major
It’s true, that men do not take balding lightly… For me this was twice as true, as I began to lose head hair very early on, in my late 20s… I’m not sure how it would’ve end up, if it was not for this brilliant clinic’s Follicular Unit Extraction therapy! Thanks!Benjamin Disraeli
