The hair transplant by FUE technique ( Follicular Unit Extraction ) is performed via a 0.8mm punch instrument to extract the Follicular Unit. This extirpation is performed under local anesthesia and the maximum number of follicular units is 1,500 UFs extracted in one day. Thus, depending on the number of follicles necessary for the procedure takes between 1 to 2 days.


The technique of FUE is to extract individually Follicular Units using punch less than 1mm in diameter, usually from 0.75 to 0.8mm.
