Strip harvesting is the most common technique for removing hair and follicles from a donor site, most commonly the area at the back and sides of the scalp. A single-, double-, or triple-bladed scalpel is used to remove strips of hair-bearing tissue from the donor site. Each incision is planned so that intact hair follicles are removed. Once removed, the strip is dissected into follicular units, which are small, naturally formed groupings of hair follicles.
Here are the main advantages of Strip Harvesting (Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation):
- The strip is still the gold standard for getting hair grafts. In the right hands very little hair is wasted because the roots of the FUs are visualized under the microscope. “Perfect” grafts can be trimmed to size.
- The strip has been around for more than ten years and large numbers of grafts can be reliably harvested and planted with a high degree of success.
- The strip is still the most time efficient and cost efficient way to harvest grafts.
- You must assume that you will heal with a scar and that you may not be able to wear your hair below a certain length. One to two on a clipper is reasonable.
- Future surgeries can be planned to remove the old scar so that the patient heals with only one scar.
- The healing time means one to two days of taking prescription pain pills and then most patients do well without prescription medications.
Pre Surgery : At an initial consultation with our Hair Transplant UK surgeon analyzes the patient’s scalp, discusses his preferences and expectations, and advises him/her on the best approach (e.g. single vs. multiple sessions) and what results might reasonably be expected. For several days prior to surgery the patient refrains from using any medicines which might result in intraoperative bleeding and resultant poor “take” of the grafts. Alcohol and smoking can contribute to poor graft survival. Post operative antibiotics are commonly prescribed to prevent wound or graft infections.
In the usual follicular unit procedure for Hair Transplant UK , the surgeon harvests a strip of skin from the posterior scalp, in an area of good hair growth. The excised strip is about 1–1.5 x 15–30 cm in size. While closing the resulting wound, assistants begin to dissect individual follicular unit grafts from the strip. Working with binocular Stereo-microscopes, they carefully remove excess fibrous and fatty tissue while trying to avoid damage to the follicular cells that will be used for grafting. The latest method of closure is called ‘Trichophytic closure’ which results in much finer scars at the donor area.
