The cost of the FUE method is much higher than FUT and yet most patients still prefer it. Because it misleads a lot of people thinking that the newest technique should be the best.
The FUE method for hair transplant has been around since 2002, which makes it 16 years. It is currently as popular as FUT method for hair transplant surgery. According to the statistics at the 2014 ISHRS annual meeting, 89% of the hair surgeons perform it.
Personally I would not recommend it. Except for very limited indications, FUE is not the patient’s best interest.
