Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a method of producing follicular unit hair grafts that involves removing the grafts individually from the scalp. The advantages of this technique over the conventional strip harvest are that it does not leave a linear scar, and the procedure produces little or no postoperative pain and discomfort. There are some disadvantages such as increased surgical times, graft fragility, and higher cost to the patient. This article describes the instrumentation and… Expand
Follicular Unit Extraction for Hair Transplantation: An Update.
TLDR
Follicular unit extraction is a hair transplantation technique that uses small punches to extract the follicular units (FUs) and is now a recognised alternative to follicular unit transplantation (FUT), a technique based on harvesting the FUs from a strip of tissue. Expand
Novel Technique of Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplantation with a Powered Punching Device
TLDR
The P-FUE method is a novel FUE procedure with many advantages over the conventional FUE technique, including a small donor wound, less pain, and a slender graft without extra surrounding tissue. Expand
Minimizing injury to the donor area in follicular unit extraction (FUE) harvesting
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is considered to be a minimally invasive procedure, and the injury to the donor area caused by a sharp punch may result in dermal fibrosis and clinically observedExpand
New Methodology and Instrumentation for Follicular Unit Extraction: Lower Follicle Transection Rates and Expanded Patient Candidacy

TLDR
It appears that the SAFE System provides the methodology and instrumentation to enhance current FUE techniques and expand patient candidacy, and the transection rate of this method compares favorably with traditional microscope graft dissection. Expand
Follicular Unit Extraction in the Asian Population
TLDR
FUE serves as an alternative to the use of a strip in donor harvesting and attracts the attention of those who desire hair transplantation but are turned off by a linear donor scar. Expand
Donor Area Acute Effluvium following Follicular Unit Extraction—Trichoscopic Simulator of Alopecia Areata: Series of Four Cases
TLDR
It is hypothesize that compromised blood supply and trauma to the existing hairs after harvesting can lead to post-hair transplant effluvium, which is probably due to anagen efffluvium. Expand
NeoGraft™: My Experience in Asians
The advantage of the NeoGraft™ technique is that the follicular unit graft is removed by vacuum instead of by manual extraction, thus potentially reducing trauma to the graft during extraction andExpand
A Mathematical Proof of How the Outgrowth Angle of Hair Follicles Influences the Injury to the Donor Area in FUE Harvesting
TLDR
The objectives of this study were to evaluate the mathematical relationship between the outgrowth angle of the hair follicles and the injury to the donor area, to measure the amount of trauma, and to provide information on how this can be reduced. Expand
Direct Hair Transplantation: A Modified Follicular Unit Extraction Technique
TLDR
Direct hair transplantation is a simple and feasible modification in the follicular unit extraction technique and is an efficacious surgical treatment modality for baldness. Expand
Follicular unit extraction: hair transplant without linear scar
TLDR
Although this procedure requires greater care in handling and obtaining follicular units, FUE enables hair transplants without a linear scar, and this method has many clinical indications. Expand
