  • FUE OVERVIEW: Follicular Unit Extraction Method

    SMG has been at the forefront of FUE for the last 6 years. We did not pigeon hole ourselves into one technique but have evaluated them all ( Manual Technique, Motorized Technique, Sharp Punch, Dull Punch, ARTUS, etc.,) We have cherry picked the best from all these sources and come up with our own unique method of using and performing FUE. By doing this we feel we can get superior results.

    The main procedural difference between FUE and the traditional strip FUT is the way the grafts are obtained from the donor area. With FUE each graft is harvested individually with a small micro-punch. A 0.7 mm to 1.0 mm punch is used to make a small circular incision in the skin around the upper part of the follicular unit, which is then extracted (pulled) directly from the scalp leaving a tiny hole. This process is repeated until the surgeon has enough grafts to do the procedure. Once the grafts are harvested the rest of the procedure (recipient site creation and placing) are essentially the same for both techniques. The main advantage of FUE is that it does not cause a linear scar.
