Strip is cheaper that FUE/FIT and the procedure is faster. Dr. Cole prefers to perform FIT because he can pick the biggest follicular units for you and get the most hair out of 1000 grafts with FIT vs. Strip. He can also get the smaller neck nape area hair for hairline rather than the really big, heart of the donor area hair.
Strip is an invasive surgery.
Strip is the way to go when a large number of grafts are needed, but only if one is prepared for the possibility that the strip scar could be wide and unacceptable.
