FAQs about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) Hair Transplants

Hair transplants have come a long way since they first burst onto the market, and the results are now extremely natural-looking, without the “teabag” perforation marks which blighted the earliest procedures.

Modern hair transplants can be carried out via a couple of different procedures but FUE is one of the most revolutionary, offering excellent results.
