Hair transplantation with maximum frequency with maximum graft involves transplanting grafts with a graft density of 50-60 per cm2 to achieve a result that mimics almost natural hair density.
In most hair transplant operations, our specialists re-transplant the hair at a graft density of 35-45 per cm2. This gives a natural result that blends in with existing hairstyles. Sometimes a patient and surgeon may choose to plan a high-intensity hair transplant. The choice in such a situation is not so simple. In this guide, you can find out what high-intensity hair transplant surgery is. We explain the main aspects that surgeons will consider when advising patients to see if they are technically suitable.
Hair Transplant Operation
Hair transplant involves transplanting grafts from the back and sides of the scalp into a balding area. There are 2 main techniques for this process:
- FUE Hair Transplantation: This operation involves cutting each hair separately and leaving small spot-like scars at the place where they are removed. These spread to the back and sides of the scalp, which are easily hidden by shorter haircuts.
- DHI Hair Transplantation: DHI is a modified version of FUE hair transplantation. In addition, it follows a procedure similar to the FUE technique. Your surgeon removes hair follicles from part of your scalp, usually behind your head. After that, he places the hair follicles in balding areas.
Medium hair density – 35-45 grafts per cm2
Hair density refers to how many strands of hair you have per cm2. In hair transplantation, there is a physical limitation on how close the hair can be transplanted to each other. However, most patients receive 35-45 grafts per cm2. This reflects 50-60% of the natural hair density on the scalp. Although it is not 100% of the natural hair density, this is not a problem. The final result usually harmonizes well with natural hair. However, your result may usually vary depending on the following reasons:
- Hair shaft diameter
- Hair and skin colour contrast
- Ongoing hair loss
- Hair texture
- Hair curl
High density hair hair transplant – 50-60 grafts per cm2
Grafts can be implanted at maximum density. This includes a number of grafts between 50-60 grafts per cm2. At this density level, the result usually corresponds to 70-80% of the natural hair density. However, there is an almost undetectable difference between natural hair and transplanted hair.Trying to plant beyond this density is risky. In addition, maximum graft and maximum frequency hair transplantation push the limits of how close each hair can be physically transplanted during the operation.
