    FUE procedure involves extracting grafts from skin and any incision (however minor) will leave a scar. But please note, scars come in various sizes. The scars caused by extracting grafts (we use imported micro-FUE punch) are not visible to the minor eye.

    We do not extract grafts above the jaw bone and chin area, so any minimal scarring is not visible as its below the jawbone and not visible unless very closely observed and that too with chin high up.

    Any FUE attempt to extract a grafts in any location (even the scalp) shall leave a scar. This is like a scar is left even with a hypodermic needle (which is the size of a regular FUE punch) while taking a blood sample for lab investigations. However, there are some points to be kept in mind to make the scars not discernible-
    1. In dark skin types, the body hair should be taken from areas that do not show- shadow area of the beard which falls just behind the jawline not extending to the neck.
    2. Directly over the jawbone in patients with little subcutaneous fat.
    3. Chest harvesting not over bony surfaces like the sternum.
    4. Less than 0.75 mm punches preferable sharp should be recruited for body graft harvest.
