Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is the most modern and least invasive type of hair restoration surgery. The procedure itself involves the use of a punch tool to extract individual hair grafts from the donor site, usually the back of the head, combined with a slit technique to implant the grafts into the recipient site, usually at the frontal hairline moving back towards the crown.
Scars from FUE surgery are characterized by small round ‘dot’ scars. They are usually numerous and cover a large area, but as they are generally separated from surrounding scars, remaining hair coverage usually provides better cover than with other hair transplant methods.
Due to their small size and relative ease of concealment, the most common camouflage methods are scalp micropigmentation and temporary concealers.
