FUE Magazine is the publication specifically centered on FUE hair transplantation and the treatment of hair loss. FUE Magazine covers all meetings that focus on hair loss, hair restoration surgery, and follicular unit extraction (FUE). Some organizations, which FUE Magazine covers include FUE Europe and the World FUE Institute (WFI) due to the focus of both groups on FUE. FUE Magazine would love to cover the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) meetings, but the ISHRS has refused to grant FUE Magazine reporter access to date.

In 1993 Richard Shiell began a small publication he called The Hair Transplant Forum. There were few articles in the initial releases, but over time, the depth and quality increased. Eventually, Dr. Shiell gave the rights to this publication to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), and the name of the magazine became The Hair Transplant Forum International (the Forum).

Initially, the Forum covered our field quite well. With the growth of FUE, however, the Forum failed to keep up with the advancements of hair restoration surgery. This failure to meet journalistic standards of a scientific community resulted from a series of non-progressive Editors and the controlling interests of a conservative board of governors beginning in 2003.

As a result, FUE was inadequately covered or covered in a negative perspective. The failure of the ISHRS to recognize the exponential demand for FUE by patients led to the black market where assistants perform the entire surgery for many surgeons. Even today, the ISHRS continues to fuel the black market by failing to adequately teach physicians how to perform FUE well.
