| ||Strip||Robotic DHT|
||A strip is being harvested from the back of the scalp, from which the follicular units are extracted out and then implanted to the concerned area.
||The follicular units are directly harvested from the back and sides of the scalp through a Robotic device and implanted to the concerned area.
||Sutures are then used to close the donor area.
||No suturing required.
||Leaves a permanent linear scar post procedure.
||No scarring reported post procedure.
||Accuracy compromised - As it involves manual extraction of follicles from the graft strip and poor angle of penetration can cause a transection of the bulb, destroying the graft.
||Accuracy intact - Since the Robotic device is used that gives a precise rotating punch and suction assisted harvesting of follicle.
||Varies and generally higher than in Robotic DHT method.
||Little or no bleeding because no major or deep cuttings involved.
||Lengthy process than Rbotic DHT.
||Within few hours.
||Recovery time is longer approx. 2-3 weeks.
||Recovery time is shorter and the donor site heals at a faster rate.
|Number of grafts extracted
||Higher number of grafts can be extracted.
||Number of graft extracted is less than Strip method.
|Post procedure limitations
||Post procedure care required for some time.
||One can carry out their daily activities from the very next day.
