Strip method -Strip harvesting is the most common technique for removing hair and follicles from a donor site. The surgeon harvests a strip of skin from the posterior scalp, in an area of good hair growth. The donor hair is harvested by taking out long and narrow strip of hair bearing skin and isolate each follicular unit under stereo-microscope. Strip harvesting will leave a “pencil thin” linear scar in the donor area, which is typically covered by a patient’s hair even at relatively short lengths. The benefit of this method is the ability to obtain large number of graft more economical and higher success rate up to 90-95%.
FUE Method -FUE hair transplantation individual hair follicles are extracted without causing damage to the scalp. This is done by very small punches that hardly leaves visible scars. As every single follicle is extracted individually this is a time consuming procedure. The benefit is that controlled and careful extraction of donor hair is very lenient to the skin and scalp. Complications are very rare, and scars are hard to detect even after only a few weeks
