What technique is best, FUE or strip?

Question:
I have some diffuse thinning at the front/top of my head that seems to have stopped. I’m female, 42. I’ve heard this is more difficult to treat, but can it be treated successfully with a transplant and, if so, what technique is best, FUE or strip?

Answer:
As long as there is no known treatable medical cause for your hair loss, hair transplantation may be a good option for you and can be done successfully. FUE requires a large area of hair to be shaved very short prior to extraction whereas strip harvesting does not. For females especially, strip harvesting is usually the better choice.
