Really nice improvement. I like the way he can wear his hair short and up and it looks totally natural. Last pic shows what I would consider a perfect hairline. Awesome!!

Hi sl. Thanks for sharing this fue result. I have a question, is the safe zone for where grafts are taken different in fue than fut? Because it looks like this patient had fue grafts taken from almost the bottom of where his hair is on his neck?

FUE for me?? Maybe???

Hi Sunseeker



Thanks for the question.


The practical "safe zone" for Strip is not comparable as such to the safe zone mentioned for FUE.



For Strip it is with regards to an area safe to take a Strip from and to remove tissue, whereas for FUE it is where the hair itself is safe to take. For example, here the FUE goes down to above the nape, if you look you see it shaved and a thumb size area non touched before it goes down then to neck hair.


The FUE area is greatly extended to harvest grafts from all over the donor and can be circa 180 cm2 on a good candidate and is spread throughout the donor when the patient has good hair evident. It will differ (the safe zone) for patients in size and some can be 6cm x 30cm as said and for others 4cm x 30cm or less taking into account other factors such as retrograde alopecia etc that limits FUE safe areas or previous surgery etc. It can also change over time as one ages.


So, hope I answered but basically the techniques differ greatly and for sure Strips are far more local in a specific are and take all of the grafts in the defined Strip zone ( a rich and well defined area) . It is not global in terms of harvesting throughout and needs to be not too low to Stretch and neither too high to have issues of the loss dipping into it.


FUE is taken throughout and for sure what is safe for FUE in terms of good quality hair would not be the same for Strip because you simply would not take it in any part of the donor but usually keep it to the defined safe area that is traditionally used. There are of course variations but I am talking in general.


Hope helps.
