Hair Restoration

Why it's time to say goodbye to a nearly 40-year-old procedure

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) aka the strip procedure is referred to as "the old method" for a reason. It's antiquated, according to Dr. Rome, and associated with significant short and long term adverse effects. At The Robotic Hair Restoration Center in Los Angeles, we do not offer this procedure.

We consider the old strip method unacceptable for the following reasons:

  • A large scar where the strip of hair was removed precludes wearing the hair short in the back
  • A painful recovery is common and significant downtime can be expected
  • Long term side effects like nerve injury with numbness and pain are not uncommon
  • Requires several weeks of restricted activity
  • Difficulty sleeping on the surgical area

The old strip method does come at a lower price than the more up to date robotic follicular unit extraction method, but Dr. Rome is confident you will be significantly happier with no linear scarring, little downtime, ability to wear your hair short, and most importantly, natural results. As an ARTAS center of clinical excellence, we are one of the premiere locations for robotic hair restoration. In addition, we often combine robotic restoration with other modern techniques like PRP, ACell, and Low Level Laser to achieve the very best results. Now is the time to change your life.
