Scepticism is linked to the early hair transplants when the standard treatment was to use grafts of hair follicles and skin, called hair plugs. These are taken from healthy areas of the scalp.

FUE harvests individual follicles from a ‘safe’ or often referred to as the permanent hair zone around the sides and back of the head. It is now seen as the gold standard in hair transplantation. This is the method pioneered by Dr Mir Malkani, the founder of Malkani Hair Restoration Institute. He is an expert hair transplant surgeon practising since 2004. Dr Malkani is a leading surgeon in both FUE and FUt surgery.
