What are the different procedural aspects of hair transplantation?

Many people are under the impression that FUE and FUT are names of the entire hair transplant technique, however, this is a misconception. There are two aspects of hair transplantation: harvesting from the donor area and distribution into the recipient area. FUE and FUT are just different methods of harvesting from the donor area but do not affect the end result: the distribution into the recipient area. There are only a few key differences between FUE and FUT. With FUT there will be only a singular line scar. With FUE there will be multiple, smaller circular scars and the possibility of collateral damage to the surrounding hairs. Distribution into the recipient area relies mostly on the experience and skill of the doctor or technician performing the installation.
