Smaller Hair Grafts
Many men and women seeking a hair transplant in New Jersey
The reason for a hair transplant is visibly thinning hair that makes the scalp more visible. Aside from the recession of a man’s hairline, loss of hair density means that spaces between individual hairs widen as hairs fall out.
One of the reasons that hair transplants today achieve much more natural looking results than ever before, is that smaller hair grafts containing only one or two hairs can be placed close together and increase hair density.
These smaller, “follicular unit groupings” containing only a few hairs or less and have become the target norm for either FUT or FUE hair transplant in New Jersey. Starting around the 1990’s, pluggy, rows of hair grafts placed in obvious lines became less common, thanks to these improved techniques. Modern surgical techniques allow surgeons to create tiny graft incisions, closer together than ever before.
A technique known as, “dense pack” involves highly skilled surgeons placing between 40 to 60 hair follicles per square centimeter. The increased density of follicular placement utilizes micro incisions, so scarring is virtually invisible, both in the recipient and the donor area on the scalp.
When we look at someone’s face, often the area of the hair that we see most clearly is the frontal scalp and hairline. It’s absolutely key for a natural, New Jersey Hair Transplant result, that hairlines contain appropriate density of hairs and artful placement and direction of hairs to mimic the way they naturally grow in this area. When overly large grafts with too many hair follicles- are placed far apart, the look is spread out rows of unnatural hair.
