Just as flap surgery is now considered a procedure from the dark ages of hair transplant, so too should strip surgery be given the boot.
Its totally unnecessary in this day and age. It destroys any chance for a person to have the option of shaving his head if his hairloss progresses further than he thinks it will at the point of transplant. It leaves a scar. There’s a lot of bleeding. Chance of infection. Pain. Danger of shock loss. Just too many negatives.
It may be time to declare a “jehad” on all strip transplant doctors.
Am I wrong? I can’t see one benefit to strip surgery other than saving the doctor’s time and ruining the patient’s life. Only doctors who don’t give a f… and are looking to get on the golf course by noon are doing this kind of surgery.
