Both FUE and FUSS (a better, more-accurate name for FUT) are "hair transplants."

 

FUSS (follicular-unit strip surgery) cuts out a section of the back of your head and then implants those follicles in the recipient area. FUE (follicular-unit extraction) pulls individual follicles out of the back of your head with a tweezer and removes them to the recipient area one at a time and without removing a section of your scalp.

Mach,

 

Generally, FUE is more expensive than FUSS.
