Advantages of FUE
  • Scarring: The tiny circular marks where the donor hairs have been extracted are usually undetectable. This may be an important consideration for men who wear their hair very short, maybe a #1 guard or zero.
  • Faster Recovery: Because FUE is less invasive and there are no sutures, recovery is quicker than the strip method.
Considerations of FUE
  • More Expensive: Because removing one hair at a time from the donor area is more time consuming and labor-intensive, this procedure is a more expensive alternative than FUG.
  • Short Hair Requirement: Cutting your hair short or shaving the back of your head is needed to extract Natural Follicular Units from your donor area.
