FUE (follicular unit extraction) techique means the removal of the follicular units each by each, by the use of a micromotor punch knife and leaving several dots of minimal scars at the donor area which heals quickly and scarfree.
These very small scars are not visible. The FUE method is painless and takes about 6-8 hours to carry out. A FUE graft contains 1-4 hairs on average – depending on the patient’s genetics.

Cost of FUE hair transplant UK vs Hungary piece or graft?
The basic direct cost of the FUE hair transplant in Hungary is 1,5 Euro/hair up to 1500 hair pieces implanted, above 1500 pieces 1 Euro/hair.

Beware of grafts instead of hair pieces quoted in prices – they are misleading! Hair surgeons, specialist transplant hair pieces, not grafts. It is important to note that the number of hair pieces in a graft can vary from 1-4 and on average you have to calculate 2 pieces of hair at a maximum. Also, all hair patient has to know that the doctors will count the hair pieces – the actual number of hair pieces they implant to the recipient area.
