Comparison between strip method & FUE

\r\n

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method :

\r\n

When single follicular units are extracted from the donor area and transplanted on the bald area, it is termed as “Follicular Unit Extraction”. Remember, one can only extract the follicles from the permanent hair-bearing zone and not from any other area.

\r\n

A lot of people think that follicular unit extraction is a blind technique that usually involves a lot of wastage. This is completely true. A punch is mainly used to extract the follicles. Although you would get different kind of punches to extract FUs, you must pick the right size. There is a very thin linear scar in FUT method, whereas in FUE method there are numerous round scars all over the donor site.

\r\n\r\n

Strip Method:

\r\n

More than 2500-3500 plugs are harvested that equals to 3500-5000 individual hair follicles. One can expect good results in the first attempt around 100-200 sq.cms only, when implanted at a specific density of around 50 FU per sq.cm.

\r\n

In the Strip method the closure is by telophytic process which leaves minimum scars, there is no wastage in Strip method, hence, our plastic surgeons consider Strip Method better than FUE method.
