Strip Harvesting Hair Transplantation

Strip harvesting is another gold standard for hair transplantation. It works by making an incision to remove small strips of donor tissue containing hair follicles and grafting the follicles to areas where hair loss has occurred. Strip harvesting makes it possible for clinicians to harvest and graft a large number of hair follicles in a single treatment session with predictability and excellent long-term outcomes.

Today’s strip harvesting takes smaller strips of hair so that the linear scars left behind are barely noticeable. Advanced closure techniques can be used to minimize tissue damage and scarring during the healing process, and in some cases, hair can grow through the scar for a natural appearance that won’t give away that you’ve had hair transplantation surgery.
