FUT and FUE both transplants are permanent. Both these are used by doctors commonly, but the popular procedure for transplant is FUE. FUT is more prominent, and the signs of extraction are visible, while FUE is almost flawless. For FUE, surgeons use several tools to make circular insertions near follicular units, detaching them from tissues without separating the scalp.
