I beg to differ.

In your opinion then patient physiology bares NO relevance whatsoever to their FUE eligibility?
Patient physiology bares relevance to all hair transplants. If the recipient skin if too hard, it won't accept the grafts etc. Complications can arise from both methods. At least with FUE if the skin of the patient's donor won't 'give' for whatever reason the procedure can stop and all the patient will have is a few tiny white dots. Stretched scars are a possible occurrence with FUT and that doesn't deter many people from undergoing FUT.

I'm referring purely to donor availability,

Other factors (such as a scalp like mush ?!?) would need to be considered before proceeding.

Spex, I dont understand this, would you please explain what you mean by some patients are just not FUE candidates.
And that the doctor could not say whether FUE is possible on a particular patient and had to cancel - what was the reason?
Thanks in advance
