Nice result. How many grafts went into the crown?

This is a very nice first pass! Does this patient naturally have this high density or are you using mfu's to get so many 4's?

RCWest,

We do include some DFU's (double follicular units of up to 4 hairs) to increase density. So if hairs are within a mm of each other, we will typically try to keep the hairs togehter in one graft, even if there is a slight gap in between the hairs. This is because dissecting them down into 1 and 2 haired grafts, and placing them into seperate incisions that are spaced a mm apart, results in spreading the hairs farther apart. By keeping the hairs closer together, we provide higher density. However, we avoid exceeding 4 hairs per graft, because more than 4 hairs per graft can result in a grafty appearance. The DFU's are placed in strategic areas, not in the front hairline for example, but more toward central areas including the crown, with follicular unit grafts surrounding them.
