yes it may be ,but to me there are only two methods…FUE or strip

both are implanted one by one

calling strip FUT, is confusing, and i think it is intentional to make it sound like its similar to FUE

the implantation of the hair is virtually the same with both methods, the difference is the extraction, either you do it one by one, FUE or, you cut a STRIP out

calling strip what it is…strip…should be required by hairsite , in the titles

Hanginthere,

There is no misinterpretation or misrepresentation made or intended, FUT is a very common term for the procedure as is the word Strip, the fact that it was followed by Trichopytic Closure, shows the suture immediately post op probably makes it quite obvious what technique was used.

The fact the we offer both procedures and do not lean one way or the other we have no reason to represent any technique as another.

If you knew your history you’d know that FUT has been the reference for the latest strip technique for many years and way before FUE was being practiced by all save for Dr. Woods. FUT stands for “follicular unit transplantation” and it is an acronym to separate the technique from mini/micros. I don’t think the reference will be changed because something new has come along and to be clear, FUE sounds like FUT, not the other way around.

You beat me to it joe.

I think this result is interesting. BHR has taken the recipient area down a litttle in the frontal zone to include an earea of early miniturization and I think this is a good option that I am unaware is practiced by any other clinics. All the same it is dissapointing that a fairly large untuched crown relains even with 6000 fu extractd=ed. I apreciate that this will / can be managed in further procedures. Personally I would opt for a thinner look including the crown but BHR may be in the camp that prefers not to revisit an area. I think the strip scar is “usual” but shows trico closure is not a gurentee of an “invisible” line. Good work BHR.

marco,

It was very deliberate to bite into a early miniaturised area, he is a NW6 and a very good chance the perimeter will recede down,so we have a responsibility to ensure that if he decides on stopping now his procedure stands on its own.

As far as density and coverage is concerned it was discussed at the consultation and decided that quality was better than quality for him. That said he is lucky because he still has a good donor and can expect another 2000-2500 FU without pushing the limits and this will still give a great result from NW6 to finish.

As far as invisible closure is concerned, forget it, if that is what you expect from a FUT or a transplant generally do not have one, especially when you talk big numbers. A good closure will certainly allow you options with a hair cut an allow you to keep it short, but it has to be remembered that when you remove 6000 there has to be a trade, and invisible closure is one of them.

I see FUT but what would any other performed surgery be called at the clinic?

De ja vous? There seems to be a great interest in names tonight, so to clarify those that seem to have a concern, feel it is a problem, or for newbies.

FUT is an acronym for Follicular Unit Transfer, sometimes called Strip; it refers to the technique whereby a linear strip is incised from the donor area, the width and length can alter depend on the many aspects.

A newer form of extraction is FUE, I believe there are varients on this that use larger punches, greater scarring and splitting FU, but basically it is meant to assume the removal of a follicular unit opposed to a larger group of follicular units like FUT. If more explanation is required please let me know

I still think the strip scar is the longest I have ever seen, its like you almost cut the guys head off

makes you never want to get strip thats for sure


#12

Is it possible to ask the patient to grow his hair long so that it can better hide the strip scar after surgery ? This guy could have covered that scar had he grown his hair 1 inch longer before the surgery.

Firstly the coverage, if you note the FU groupings you will see he had a high % of single and two hair follicular units, these have to be packed closer together to ensure a density, the larger groupings can be spread further. The placement of grafts is an important factor in achieving coverage but it is not just about the graft numbers, but the natural groupings and general hair characteristics. We recently performed a 5325 FUT procedure with a higher % of larger groupings, although the graft number was 600 less than this case he had he had 400 more hairs.

Another factor with the coverage; the intention prior to this procedure was to look long term and the patient took and educated decision, knowing his options, to focus on a good density and then look at full coverage down the line with another procedure.

The scar line, the patient had a higher than average density, very good laxity, the strip was not aggressively removed to reach the number, was removed within the safety zone and not hard to close. The healing process of the strip will be over months, hence it is visible in the early outdoor post op pictures, again with short hair; now the gentleman feels comfortable with keeping his hair this short and considering his work, in the armed forces, where men can be quite vocal and jocular I would suggest it maybe not obvious, and only when scrutinised, knowing it is there and looking for it does it become more noticeable or an issue; and that is with very short hair.

Whether or not you feel it is aggressive is subjective, as is having a hair transplant in the first place, FUE or FUT/Strip, they are surgical procedures that will cause scarring in the donor area and all care is taken to reduce the scarring to a minimum. Unfortunately this is the trade off with a hair transplant, if you do not want your body impaired or changed in any way then a hair transplant may not be for you.

Helpmeout,
here are pictures with longer hair, post op 8 months outdoors, natural light

BHR,

There has been some criticism in this thread but I would like to express the thanks of the posters including myself that appreciate your candor and presentation of a very good example of HT without hiding the realities of the procedure.


#16

Hello to all,
Frankly I dont understand whats all the fuss about… You can notice the scar a little simply cause this patient has his fair cut very short, thats all. The results are awsome, Im sure he must be very happy, so must the clinic.

HOLY SCARS

that scar might pop open if he chews too fast.

i get that existing hair might cover that but that scar is a severe severe cut

I am sure all strip scars look like this fresh from surgery, most clinics just don’t show it to the public for obvious reasons. It does look scary !

It would be interesting if Jotronic should give his view on this…
Cheers everyone and Merry Xmas!
