Each patient is limited by the quantity of donor hair available to relocate to the bald and thinning areas. Donor density and scalp laxity are the key factors in determining the total donor reserves for each patient. In other words, there’s a limit to the number of follicular units that can be transplanted. That’s why we take precise measurements of the hair loss pattern and factor any potential future hair loss into your overall long-term surgical treatment plan.

 Honest measurements of the trouble areas using a proprietary hair loss template are taken. This tool helps us determine how many follicular graft units will be needed to reach your hair restoration goals. You’ll know how many follicular graft units it may take to fill in and restore a particular area. This information becomes a permanent part of your medical file.
