 Strip method


  There are four different types of flaps used for the correction of alopecia: temporo-parieto-occipital flaps, lateral scalp flaps, long and short temporal vertical flaps, and microsurgical free scalp flaps.

These techniques involve cutting and lifting bands of hair scalp of approximately 20cm-long and positioning them onto bald area. Flap surgery is an efficient method for treating extensive types of baldness. This is because every single available donor hair of the patient's can be used to produce the end result.

However, there are serious disadvantages to this procedure which should be carefully considered. For example, in Juri flaps, the hair within them is always directed posteriorly which is contrary to the normal hair direction seen in 99% of patients.

The hair direction also results in complete exposure of the anterior line scar and hairline, and nearly always appears too dense and coarse to look natural.
