FUT graft and FUE grafts

Please see the two photos. The only difference is the FUT grafts have tissue around its follicles and the FUE grafts have no tissue. 

FUE is a blind procedure, the deeper the cutting, the more chance of dissection of the follicles. The standard method is to blindly punch through the skin then use a strong forceps to pull them out. This is the reason why there are no tissues are around the follicle level and the follicle is left exposed with no protection.
