Strip Method

realself-top100-doctor-2015The strip method for hair transplants is a procedure that is used when you need a lot of hair follicles at once. Using this technique, hair grafts are extracted and are then implanted into the balding areas. The strip method entails cutting out a strip of scalp tissue from the back or side of the head and that strip is utilized by being cut into small pieces which are further divided into follicular units using a microscope. The wound will then be sewed or stapled to get the smallest linear scar possible.

Are you awake during the procedure?

You will be put under local anesthesia during this procedure. Patients are able to remain comfortable during the procedure and can choose to take a nap, talk with the staff or even watch a movie.

How long until results are noticeable?

The newly transplanted hair will start to grow approximately 10 weeks after the procedure. Around 6 months after the procedure, the hair should be long enough that it will require grooming and the hair should be fully grown one year after the procedure.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
