Measuring and visualizing hair density for transplant.

Recommended Posts

40-50 follicles/cm2 seems to be the general target for density for most hair transplant surgeons. But what does this measure mean visually? Any resources online where we can see and compare what 30-40-50 follicles/cm2 would look like? 

I understand hair thickness, color and other factors can influence density/illusion of density, but I'm looking for just a general idea. 

Personal examples also welcome.
