I was wondering if there is any difference in the results that could be achieved between having an FUE or FUSS procedure to increase the density behind my hairline ?

For the hairline itself, theoretically a doctor can, with FUE, cherry pick the finest single hair units which can help provide the softest and most natural result. For behind the hairline, they could choose the units containing the higher number of hairs (3s and 4s, for example) for increased density. A FUSS strip will contain plenty of these units, though, so I'm not sure how much real-world benefit there is to be had.

And then, of course, there is the age-old controversy over strip/FUE with regard to lower FUE yields.

Are you planning on having work done in the hairline or only adding density behind the hairline? FUE tends not to yield as many 3-4 hair FU's as you can obtain witha strip. That may effect the ability to increase density in certain areas.
