I am considering a number of Hair transplant surgens for an FUE treatment. I previously had a FUT (strip) procedure performed in 2010. Now I want FUE, because strip is trerrible and dont want to go through that again. However strip has a high graft survival rate. FUE not so high. Which option is best and by what percentage for 4000 grafts FUE.
1. 4000 Grafts in one mega session with micro motor extraction
2. 2000 a day Grafts over two days with micro motor extraction
3. 4000 grafts over 3 days with manual extraction
The first being the cheapest one third of the cost of the third option. It wouldnt be reasonable to pay three times as much for 10% higher survival rate.
With the first option blood flow is cut off to 60% of the grafts for more than 3 hrs to 80% of the grafts for more than 5hrs
In the second option all grafts are planted within 4hrs, the third option within 2-3hrs. Does this make any difference?
