Comparison Between Strip Harvesting & FUE - Part 1

Years ago, experts started advocating a new way of performing hair transplant surgeries. Instead of the traditional strip harvesting– meaning that doctors would take strips of hair-bearing tissue from part of the head and place them elsewhere, the experts started advocating FUE hair transplants. 

FUE Instruments and Their Use

Improvements in instrument technology and technique have now made follicular unit extraction (FUE) a procedure competitive with strip harvesting for obtaining donor hair for transplantation.

Excision Of Bald Scalp Utilizing Tissue Expansion Or Extension

Although hair transplantation alone is by far the most common method of hair restoration utilized in modern times, excision of bald scalp after either tissue expansion or scalp extension can play a very useful and important role in hair restoration as well.

FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is a method of harvesting hair follicles from the donor area (the back and side of scalp where hairs won't fall out during the patient's lifetime).
