Benefits of FUE Hair Transplant

- Quality hair graft
The surgeon will select the quality hair graft which means the healthiest and strongest will be selected.
- Healing time
With no stitches in this procedure, the recovery time is very less as compared to other treatment options. This means that you can get back to your normal working routine within a couple of days.
