Can you explain how donor hair is removed with the FUE method. Is it via a strip of hair or some other way?
Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) hair transplantation surgery is performed using a single circular punch-type instrument that is utilized to circle the follicular unit graft and carefully excise each graft on an individual basis.
This is contrast to the strip method where a single scalpel is used to remove an elliptical-shaped piece of hair-bearing skin from the donor area and the area is then sutured and/or stapled.
