Hair Transplant Strip Surgery
Hair transplant strip surgery is the process of removing a strip of hair from the sides and back of the head to be used as donor hair. The sides and the back of the head are areas of the head that contain hair that is uneffected by the hormone DHT, which is one of the leading causes of baldness in males.As mentioned, this hair is used for the donor area, which is the area of the head that requires more hair.
The strip surgery process invloves the hair transplant surgeon removing a strip (the strip will vary in width and length depending on the amount of grafts needed for the surgery) of hair from the back or side of the head and that strip is then handed off to specialized techinicians who then separate the individual hair grafts.
This is what a strip looks like when it is initially removed:

Once the technicians have completed their task, the individual hair transplant grafts are then inserted into predetermined incisions in the donor area. The hair quickly begins to bind and then the waiting processs for your new hair growth begins.
