Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is a extraction and hair restoration
method used for donor hair during a transplant procedure. During
FUE, an instrument creates a small incision into the skin whereby
the follicular units are separated from the surrounding tissue.
Recipient sites are created within the balding area of the scalp
using a fine-point (0.7mm) instrument. Follicular units are then
placed within the recipient sites, allowing them to grow into healthy
Generally this procedure takes about one or more hours. In larger
sessions, completion is reached within two or more days.
Follicular Unit Extraction
During Follicular Unit Transplantation or FUT, follicular units
are directly removed from the scalp using horizontal strip. FUT
is also known as “Strip harvesting”. Scarring of the scalp is
common in this procedure.
Stereo-microscopic dissection is used to remove individual
follicular units without damage to the follicles.
Recipient sites are created using 21-19 gauge hypodermic
needles. Professional surgical experience and aesthetics are
highly crucial in this process as it determines the distribution
and density of the sites.
Follicular Unit Transplantation
Often times Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit
Transplantation (FUT) are compared to each other. Essentially, the main
difference between these two procedures are the method in which the
follicles are extracted from the scalp.
Although, the FUE hair transplant is known as a more refined technique to
hair restoration, some important points to consider are: donor area scarring,
longevity of follicles, graft density, graft healing and more.
The harvesting procedure does have considerable impact on the hair
restoration process because it will affect the total number of high quality
grafts that can be harvested. Ultimately, both procedures are best suited
toward the patient’s specific needs. Thorough consultation with a hair
transplant specialist will walk the clients through the procedure to deem
which method is appropriate for the individual.
Differences Between FUT &
Neograft is one of the latest techniques in FUE hair transplant surgery.
It’s reputation is garnered from it’s highly effective results with little to
no risk to complications.
Although similar to other FUE transplant techniques, this method
involves minimally invasive hair follicle extraction from areas of
abundant growth to more areas which are sparse in hair growth.
Neograft FUE generally provides a much shorter healing process as
opposed to other methods, and the mechanics of Neograft usage are
inherently ergonomic and natural for surgical use. Lending for more
faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles.
ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration
The ARTAS Robotic System is perhaps the most advanced medical device now
available for hair restoration. With over 8 years of research and development, the
ARTAS system utilizes advanced digital imagery to map and analyze follicles.
Precision robotics, image guidance and selective harvesting patterns are only a few
advanced features of the ARTAS robot. These features work towards creating the
most dynamically detailed and accurate hair restoration procedure to date.
Through the ARTAS Robotic System, patients will have peace of mind knowing that
they can return to normal activities within one or two days. Not to mention, because
ARTAS harvests follicular units randomly, post-procedure scarring is not visible.
Both techniques are the latest advances in the FUE hair restoration process.
There are many patient variables and specific cases which may call for one
technique over the other. This choice is dependent on your professional
evaluation and consultation. Here are a few functional differences:
As an intuitive motorized device, Neograft greatly assists the operator in
precise FUE. Neograft is reliant on human skill and stamina. Additionally,
Neograft as opposed to traditional strip harvesting is minimally invasive,
leaving no scarring or stitches/staples.
As the latest technological advance in FUE, the ARTAS robotic system
implements mapping and automation functions for follicular extraction.
ARTAS also has regular available software and hardware upgrades to keep
ahead of patient and doctor needs.

Hair transplantation like any other surgical procedure is a crucial
decision in which observing the advantages is recommended. This
decision is hinged mostly on your desirable procedure, your

methods, it is no question that figuring out the
