Follicular Unit Strip Surgery, (FUSS, or FUT) was once the primary method for New Jersey hair transplant surgery. It involves the removal of a thin strip of scalp tissue from the back of the head. This is where the most DHT resistant and robust hairs grow. Typically, when someone has lost significant hair at the crown and temples, the hair at the back and sides of the head will remain, making it an ideal donor area. The strip of tissue is dissected under a special microscope to create thousands of individual hair grafts containing just a few hairs or less. These are then placed into tiny slits on the scalp at the recipient area.
Though the method for placing hair follicle grafts remains mostly the same today, methods for extracting hair grafts have evolved and patients now have more than one option, depending on their needs and goals.
Less Invasive Option
Follicular Unit Excision, FUE, is considered to be a less invasive option for hair follicle extraction because it does not require the excision of a strip of scalp. A small hand-held punch tool creates micro incisions around each grouping of follicles measuring only 0.7 – 1mm in diameter. These cylindrical punch extractions of scalp and hair do not require stitches and are so small, they typically close and heal within a few days.
