Motorized Manual Follicular Unit Excision
Manual Follicular Unit Excision, or FUE, is a major advancement in hair restoration surgery over the previously prevalent strip surgery method (FUT). FUE is the process of extracting individual hair follicles from the patient donor area using a motorized FUE device using various types of punches. This is much less invasive than the FUT surgery and has considerably less discomfort afterwards. FUE requires a steep learning curve to master, patience, physical stamina and endurance, a delicate touch, excellent hand eye coordination, and excellent hand-motor skills. Given these innovations, modern motorized tools have become highly effective, and allow well-trained physicians to harvest large numbers of grafts in increased session sizes.
