Follicular Unit Strip surgery more common in 2013
It comes as a surprise to many that strip surgery was more commonly performed than follicular unit extraction (FUE). A 2013 survey of over 900 hair transplant surgeon members of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) showed that about 67 % of procedures were performed using strip surgery (FUSS) and 1/3 were by follicular unit extraction (FUE).
At Donovan Medical, both types of procedures are performed. Some individuals may be better candidates for FUE than strip and other individuals may be better candidates for strip than FUE.
