Much has been written regarding the pros and cons of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) compared to Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). The allure of the FUE hair transplant is the lack of a linear scar resulting in the possible ability to cut the hair much shorter or perhaps even shave the head in the future if the patient so desires. For some men, this single benefit far outweighs the risk of lower yield and the added costs involved.
So, how much coverage can you get from FUE? What level on the Norwood scale is too high? As with all aspects of surgical hair restoration, there are many factors that come into play.
After his FUE procedure of 1,000 follicular unit grafts to the hairline, forum member “CHB81” started the thread, Complete Coverage with FUE Possible?, in order to learn if the low density he experienced is common and if a second FUE will help him achieve his hair restoration goals.
