Strip FUT is one of the most common follicle harvesting procedure of hair transplantation, in which a strip of skin is removed from the patient donor area and then dissected into many individual follicular units using stereo-microscopes.

Strip surgery is a good option for patients who cannot tolerate a long procedure and/or who have an appropriate occipital scalp skin laxity. Low scalp laxity leads to widened scars with this method.

As the follicles are separated using stereo-microscopes, under direct visualization of the follicular hair bulb, few hairs are transacted and a high graft survival rate results.
