Remember also that I’m providing you with general information. There are always exceptions to every rule. Perhaps Hasson And Wong know something about your specific case that I don’t and therefore, maybe they’re recommending strip for a reason.
That said, since we are being overly technical, FUT is actually the overshadowing procedure where as strip and if you we are actually both FUT procedures, they are both just different toner harvesting techniques. That may be confusing because everybody is so used to discussing FUT versus FUE. The reality is, it’s FUSS versus FUE. If you SS stands for follicular unit strip surgery.
I don’t think it means having less surgeries if you go strip. In fact, I think the potential of having more strips when you actually need them will be reduced. With that said, both techniques are good and produce good results, so either way whatever you choose should meet your goals right now.
Well if it means potentially less surgery in the long term and greater results sooner, actually I'd say yes.
I have really good skin elasticity so why put off an FUT in the future if I can have it now, and then I would still have an FUE procedure left in my arsenal for the end where I can cherry pick my best hairs for touch ups (if need be).
You don't agree?
We are going to go in a loop soon huh :...)
I stumbled upon this gentleman on YouTube. This is actually shocking, there’s not enough donor hair to even recreate a hairline. Individuals with this level of hair loss can either do SMP which I would probably opt for or a hair system. I don’t know if medications would even work for this level of hair loss.
I think you’re over complicating things, both techniques give good results. However, strip reduces scalp elasticity, would you really wanna reduce your scalps elasticity for a couple hundred grafts? Personally, I would rather reserve FUT down the line when a large number of grafts is required.
