Toronto FUE hair transplant procedures have become more accessible than ever, and people are choosing to undergo the older “strip method” of hair transplant surgery (FUT) much less commonly. The old technique used to be considered the industry standard. It involved excising a long strip of scalp tissue from the back of the head, removing and separating the follicles from that strip, and then transplanting the follicles into donor sites.
This very common hair restoration technique has often had the downside of leaving men with a visible, linear scar at the back of the head. The difficulty of hiding or reducing this visible scar frustrates many people. However, there are solutions. Many doctors still choose to offer this method, but we can now offer options to minimize or get rid of the tell-tale scar that comes with the strip method of hair transplant.
