Recommended Posts

BHR Clinic

Dr. Christian BISANGA
Age: 35
Technique: FUE
Donor density: 80/90/110 FUs/cm2
Hair Caliber: Medium Fine
4004 Graft

* Follicular Unit breakdown:-  
1s - 574
2s - 1650
3s - 1659
4s - 121
TOTAL: 4004

4004 FU = 9335 Hairs 
Average = 2,33 hairs/FU

Key Observations
* Rare for a patient to have density of over 100 FU/cm2
* Higher donor density also means that placing density must be higher than average to allow a natural and smooth transition into native hair behind
* Above average hair groupings

Thank you for the comments guys.

His beard certainly is impressive also.

FU (follicular units) / cm2 is referring to how many grafts are within a squared centimetre.
Microns in hair restoration are related to the measurement of the diameter of the hair shaft.

This particular patient had medium fine hair with an average diameter of hair shaft of 43 microns (0,043 mm).

I thought anything near 50 micron was considered to be "fine"? Could you please explain the range of hair shaft diameter that you see and which would be considered fine vs medium vs thick?

I came across this from a study:

The solid grey is the mean, and the stick the Standard Deviation (+ and - from the mean)

Thanks for the further comments and education discussion. Always helpful.

Generally speaking, european caucasian hair with a diameter of 0.04 - 0.06m would be considered fine, 0.06 - 0.08 normal, and anything above thick.
By comparison, Asian hair is generally quite significantly thicker and despite an average lower density, are able to have the visual of fuller hair.

Diameter of the hair shaft will change quite significantly in different areas of the scalp. The auricular area for example will be finer than the occipital. Some of this patients hair will fall into the fine range, and others into the medium range, hence the medium fine description to respect that detail. As detailed, the micron measurement was an average.

Interesting study @1978mattThanks for sharing that. It does give a base idea of varying ethnicities and the average diameter of hair shaft. I did read that - "Hair diameter was assessed in 823 volunteers (33% male, 67% women) from 15 countries of Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe" 

As this is a very small test group in terms of world population, it would be interesting to see how this scales.

It may be an idea to begin a new thread to discuss findings of microns and hair thickness with an appropriately named title to attract more relevant interest and comment. 

This patient has kindly allowed us to use his photos and video showing his full face which really does add a further dynamic to the result that allows us to appreciate facial features, distances etc...

The patient is understandably thrilled. His transformation has taken years off him and Im sure has given him a new found confidence.

I would definitely be interested in such a thread.

Great patient result. The face framing is night and day.
