FUE hair transplant was first named as the scar less method due to the difference in the hair follicles extraction method.

FUE vs. FUT Hair Transplant:

·         FUE Hair Transplant Surgery:

Hair follicles are individually extracted from the donor regions in the FUE hair transplant. So no scarring is left behind after the FUE hair transplant procedure.

There is still a possibility for scarring. The use of tiny needles punches that are being used at the donor regions like the back or sides of the scalp for the extraction method of hair follicles can also leave unnoticeable marks. But these can easily be healed and nobody will be able to notice them too.

·         FUT Hair Transplant Surgery:

Whereas in the FUT hair transplant, hair follicles are extracted in a strip form which is really painful as compared to FUE. And scars are left after the FUT hair transplant surgery.
