Another technique for follicular unit transplantation is with strip harvesting. In this procedure performed at our Los Angeles hair transplant clinic, a strip of scalp is removed from the back of the scalp. The wound is then sutured back together and the piece of scalp tissue are then cut into small pieces of tissue called grafts which are then transplanted back in to the thinning area of the patient’s head. This method does leave a linear scar on the back of the head. The visibility of the scar is dependent on the technique of the Doctor – Our clinic ensures the smallest visible scar possible.
