Our Surgeons Offer Both Types of Hair Restoration Techniques
The Strip Harvest Technique
The strip harvest technique is the type of hair transplantation that most people are accustomed to being performed. It is performed by taking a strip of hair from your scalp near the back portion of your head and then transplanting the hair where it’s needed. After removing the horizontal strip of hair from the scalp, the wound where the hair was removed is closed with a special suturing technique that is designed to promote optimum healing with as little scarring as possible. After the wound is completely healed, some hair will begin to grow through the horizontal scar, but there’s no need to worry because the hair surrounding the scar will sufficiently cover the scar as long as an appropriate amount of hair is kept over the area. The horizontal strip of hair that’s removed is usually only approximately one cm wide, but it can span the length from ear to ear depending upon how much hair needs to be transplanted. This more traditional hair transplantation technique tends to be the cheaper option.
Follicular Unit Extraction Technique
In this hair extraction technique, each individual hair follicle to be transplanted is removed from the back of the head rather than an entire strip being harvested. Traditionally, this type of extraction was done with the assistance of manual instructions such as punch grafts that were one mm or smaller, which led to a labor-intense, tedious and time-consuming harvesting process.
Nowadays, though, there is NeoGraft® technology that allows surgeons to extract each individual hair with greater ease and with the assistance of a machine. This process is minimally invasive and is the more popular hair harvesting technique that our practice uses. In fact, we are proud to say that we are not only the first hair restoration surgeons in this area to offer this follicle extraction method, but we are also the only one that currently offers it. This system provides you with a safer, more effective and more efficient harvesting of hair, and you don’t have to take the risk of scarring on the back of your head when you choose to have your hair extracted via this procedure. Plus, since we won’t have to make any incisions on your scalp, no sutures will be required, which will cut down your recovery time as well.
