Removing Donor Tissue For FUT Hair Transplant

FUG Hair Transplant / Strip Method Advantages:

  • Cost-Effectiveness: FUG/Strip Method is typically less expensive than FUE simply because it is less time-consuming.
  • More Grafts Per Session: A physician can transplant a greater number of hair grafts in a single session of FUG than is possible using FUE. Typically with FUG, a physician can transplant 4,000 follicular units or more in just one session.
  • Maximum Grafts Harvested
  • No Need To Shave Head
  • One Fine Linear Scar
  • Less Surgery Time
  • Cost Less

FUG/Strip Method Considerations:

  • Scarring: The FUG procedure produces a long, linear scar where the strip of donor hair is removed. Although the scar is usually very thin and nearly undetectable when fully healed, it is still there.
  • Longer Recovery: Due to the nature of the Strip Method, the donor area will require a longer time to heal, depending on your characteristics. Approximately 10-15 days.
