What’s the difference between FUE (follicular unit extraction) and FUG (follicular unit grafting)? Is one better?


The only difference between FUE and FUG is the way the donor hairs are harvested. The “strip method” is used with the FUG (follicular unit grafting) method, whereas hairs are taken out in natural groupings when the FUE (follicular unit extraction) method is utilized. Both methods create a graft with naturally occurring groups of one, two, three, or even four hairs that are implanted.  Both have certain benefits and drawbacks, but they both produce amazing natural looking results. So, neither is really better than the other, it’s personal preference. Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Halaas so you can review your options and choose which method is right for you.
