This fellow is a doctor friend of mine who came in for a small case last summer. He stopped by last week at about a year out from his case of 1500 placed in his frontal triangles. He looks natural and has sent in a bunch of folks. And like most doctors...he didn't really follow instructions on cleaning and was pretty crusty at a week, and never showed for any followup. Doctors are the worst patients we all know.

It looks amazing

Does strip give a better result? It would seem that it'd be easier to dissect the grafts without transection.

You hit on a key difference between strip and FUE. FUE avoids a linear scar, but has more variable results than strip. For medium to large cases I definitely favor strip for reliability and cost effectiveness, but its all part of the informed consent process that you ought to go through with your doctor.
