Follicular Unit transplant also known as FUT or Strip. A strip of skin is excised from the back and sides of the head in the safer donor zone area, this area consists of hairs that are usually resistant to DHT. The skin is then sutured or stapled together to close the gap. A popular method to close the gap is trichophytic closure which usually leaves the patient with a pencil line thin scar.
