The FUT (STRIP) procedure involves harvesting donor hair follicles with an approximately 6 cm incision in the back of your head. This incision scar is hidden under your remaining hair as long as you keep some length to the hair on the back of your scalp.
Our highly trained medical technicians dissect the donor follicles into individual hair follicles under a high power stereo microscope. The use of a stereo microscope prevents damage (transection) of the hair follicles and allows our surgical team to examine each follicle to ensure it is of the best quality for transplantation.

FUT (Strip) harvesting leaves a linear scar on the back of your head. The FUE harvesting method leaves thousands of very small, round dot scars on the back of your head.
For men and women with normal length hair, these scars will be hidden and inconsequential. For those who want to keep their hair very short (#2 guard or below) you may consider the FUE harvesting method to avoid the appearance of a scar line.
