Micro-strip Hair Transplantation Technique
This method of hair transplantation is an evolution of the strip method and it was first applied by Dr. G. Papaggelopoulos’s medical team in 2007. The micro-strip method is applied to candidates for hair transplantation who can not get grafts through the classic strip method, due to lack of elasticity of the donor area, but also in cases of a very small donor area.
Because the number of transplants we receive in this hair transplant method is proportional to the number of the classic strip method, it can be applied to candidates who do not wish to follow the strip method, for their own personal reasons, for the receiving of a strip or the FUE.
The particle size we receive through the microstrip hair transplantation method does not exceed 2.5 to 3 cm and leaves no scar marks, since it is performed by a specialized dermasurgeon.
The case of graft loss trgarding the microstrip hair transplantation method – as with the strip method – is negligible compared to the FUE, where up to 30% of grafts can be lost due to their “blind” mode of receiving (see FUE technique).
The advantages of the micro-strip method:
- the short duration of the hair transplantation surgery
- a quick return to the routine activities
- the growth of new hair is the same as in the strip method
Frequently Asked Questions
How experienced should the medical team which shall perform the micro-strip method be?
The micro-strip is a method which was first applied by Dr. G. Papagelopoulos in 2007. The experience and the knowledge of the method are excellent and the collaboration with leading plastic surgeons offers the expected result to each patient, both at an aesthetic and in a functional level.
Does the transplantation hair need some special care?
This hair needs no special care compared to what you were used to offer. It can be washed, combed, trimmed and continue to be a part of your daily routine. They fall off after years, when natural ageing occurs.
Is there a side effect that patients need to know about?
It does not present any side effect, since the surgery is purely dermal, it does not affect organs of the body and does not present any headache.
