Hair characteristics play a vital role in the overall illusion and success of a hair transplant. Some hair transplant patients have more favourable hair characteristics and therefore need fewer follicular unit grafts to achieve their personal hair restoration goals.
Someone with fine, straight, thin hair is going to require more hair grafts to achieve a similar result than for example someone with coarse, wavy, thick hair.
Remember that hair transplantation is about creating an illusion of hair density. With the appropriate placement and use of your hairs characteristic the illusion can be achieved very well. Those with more favourable hair characteristic (wavy, thick hair) will require fewer hair grafts to meet their hair restoration goals.
Hairs characteristics vary in each hair loss sufferer, therefore be sure to consult with a qualified hair restoration physician about how your hair characteristics will contribute to the success of your hair transplant surgery.
In conclusion, hair transplant patients with very similar hair loss patterns may not have the same hair characteristic, therefore they will require a different number of follicular unit grafts to achieve a similar result in terms of illusion, coverage, density.
