He uses this tool to extract the follicular units one by one, instead of grafting an entire strip of flesh. The follicles are then implanted into the recipient area.

The best hair restoration available lies in FUE technology. FUE, or follicular unit extraction, consistently produces the most pleasing, full, and natural looking outcomes while minimizing scarring. During this procedure, the surgeon uses a handheld pen-like device with a .8-1.2mm excision tool mounted on the end
    It leaves no linear scar.
    It is much less invasive, requiring no stitches or bandaging.
    It has a quicker recovery time.
    Any scarring is so tiny it is cosmetically insignificant.
    FUE recipients will usually be able wear any hair style they like, including a buzz cut if they choose, because they will not have to mask scarring.
    The follicles being extracted individually means donor hair can come from anywhere on the scalp, including finer hair from the nape of the neck or behind the ears. This gives way to better hairline design and more natural-looking hairlines as a result.

The first of hair transplantation was the punch graft, first performed in the 1950’s. This method, which evolved to mini- and micro-grafting, has become unused for the most part due to the “pluggy” look it produces. The most widely used procedure today is follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS), though it has its inherent flaws. Strip surgery is known to leave a linear scar in the donor area (being the mid-back portion of the scalp) and to result in harsh, unnatural-looking hairlines. During the procedure, the surgeon removes an entire strip of flesh from the donor area. This strip is then cut up into follicular units (naturally occurring groups of one to four hairs) to be implanted into the recipient area of the scalp.
Scalp reduction and flap surgery are older methods, hardly used now in the way of hair restoration. They are largely reserved for cases involving congenital birth defects. Hair transplantation, however, is still evolving. It comes in many forms, some older, and some newer, all of which have varying outcomes and benefits.
technology has seen many claims made to the ability to restore a balding scalp. Today, many of these are outdated and nearly obsolete. A brief overview of the methods of hair restoration includes:

    Scalp reduction
    Temporoparieto-occipital flap surgery
    Hair transplantation, which includes punch grafting, strip surgery, and FUE

Hair restoration. For millions, this topic brings excitement and hope, along with confusion, questions, and thorough investigation.
