In STRIP FUT hair transplant technique,the donor's hair is harvested by excising a narrow strip of scalp from the back donor, the size of which is planned by the physician. The photo above is one of our patients who underwent STRIP FUT hair transplant.
Our board certified hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Julieta Peralta Arambulo understands and is proficient with each step of the STRIP procedure in order to train assistants and to supervise quality control.

Staff special training is necessary to produce skilled efficient assistants who understand the precision needed to generate and place high-quality grafts from strip FUT procedure. Without such staff, stereo microscopic donor strip dissection, to prepare high-quality follicular unit grafts of 3000 or more grafts cannot be properly executed in one session.
We use Platelet Rich Plasma, as holding the solution for the grafts to keep them healthy all throughout the procedure. PRP has been reported to speed wound healing on the donor and recipient areas and to enhance transplant hair growth.
We document the grafts quality and quantity production.
Patients are concerned that strip excision leaves a linear scar but with proper scalp assessment by Dr. Arambulo with introduction of the Trichophytic closure technique we noticed linear scarring is very thin to undetectable as seen in this patient above after 1 session of surgery.
