The strip technique is much more invasive than FUE, but it avoids shaving the donor area beforehand. This is why many women still ask for it.
A strip of scalp is excised at the back of the head, then the grafts (from 1 to 5 hairs) are cut under magnifying glasses or microscope.
Only a surgeon is authorized to perform this operation. For the medical team, it is easier to collect grafts with curved root in that way.
The patient or patient should have a sufficiently streching scalp.
Suitable for a large number of grafts (up to 3000 in one session).
The postoperative period can be painful, and some complications may occur. The scar is permanent but can be camouflaged later, if necessary, with FUE technique.
