STRIP vs Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

STRIP Hair Transplant Surgery


A strip of skin containing many follicular units is removed from the back of the scalp for transplantation to areas of hair loss.  As an example, a strip may be 2.5 cm wide (one inch) and 30 cm long (12 inches).  The margins of the wound are sutured to close the gap caused by removing the skin. This often results in a scar of unpredictable width disheartening patients and reducing the aesthetic result of the surgery.

CIT® (FUE) Hair Transplant Surgery

In FUE harvesting, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the hair restoration patient's donor area, ideally one at a time. This differs from strip-harvesting because, in strip harvesting, a strip of skin is removed from the patient and then dissected into many individual follicular units. The follicular units obtained by either method are the basic building blocks of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) [Sourced from Wikipedia].



The Cole Isolation Technique (CIT®)

CIT® matches individual patient characteristics with specific surgical instruments and techniques to insure optimal result for all patients.  Individual follicles or follicular groups are transferred from one location to an area of thinning hair or baldness.
