I’ve recently attended several hair transplant consultations and each surgeon recommended a different follicular unit graft density (number of follicular unit grafts transplanted per square centimeter of balding scalp). I’m wondering, what type of follicular unit graft density is safe and recommended?
I generally do not exceed 50-60 follicular units per square centimer. I would rather place 60 follicular units in a square centimeter and have 56 units grow than place 80 follicular units per square centimeter and only have 68 units grow. Less waisted follicles is better in the long run. Everyone has a limited supply.
