Strip Harvesting
(Follicular Unit Transplantation)

  • Grafts carefully placed with special instruments
  • Graft dissection
  • The strip removed and the “vacancy” is sutured closed. The hair covers the stitches

Strip Harvesting – A strip of scalp is removed under local anesthesia, the wound is then sutured back together and this piece of scalp tissue is then cut in to small pieces of tissue called grafts which are then transplanted back in to the thinning area of the patients head. This method will leave the linear scar in the donor area, which should be covered by patience hair (if long). The recovery period is around 2 weeks and will require the stitches to be removed by medical personal

FUE Harvesting
(Follicular Unit Extraction)

  • Follicles reinserted back in to the scalp using a micro blade
  • Follical micro removal

Follicular Unit Extraction Or FUE Harvesting – Individual follicles of hair are removed under local anesthesia; this micro removal uses tiny punches of between 06mm and 125mm in diameter. Each follicle is then reinserted back in to the scalp in the thinning area using a micro blade. Because individual follicles are removed, only small, punctuate scars remain and any post surgical pain is minimized. As no suture removal is required. recovery from FUE is within 7 days
