The FUE ( Follicular Unit Extraction ) is the least invasive of the hair transplant techniques. This procedure leaves no linear scar in the donor area because it does not use a scalpel or stitches. FUE involves removing follicular units one by one from the donor area by using circular micro-punches of the diameter corresponding to the follicular units of the patient.
