FUE vs FUT confused

I’m confused why people even consider FUE. FUT has clearly shown to be able to extract more follicles from the safe zone and have a higher survival rate. Our limiting factor is the number of hair follicles we have. So besides an unsightly scar (which we can wear our hair long to hide), why FUE over FUT?

For the men with advanced balding patterns like the Class 5-7 patterns, I personally believe that the strip surgery is better because you don’t develop a see-through donor area as the donor gets depleted with FUE when the number of total grafts extracted exceeds 3500 grafts. This applies to a man with medium weight hair and a normal donor density. Men with coarser hair and higher than normal donor densities can get more than 3500 grafts extracted safely with FUE
