Why Smaller Blades Produce Better in hair transplant?



Nowadays, hair transplant operations guarantee the best results more than ever with the use of highly advanced tools and techniques.


The surrounding tissue on each follicular unit should be trimmed as much as possible while preserving the integrity of the follicular unit. Some of the surrounding tissue needs to be preserved however, elite hair transplant surgeons who regularly use ultra refined follicular unit “skinny” grafts can create better growth and denser packs.


The number of hair per follicular unit also plays a significant role in the size of the slit blade needed for hair restoration surgery. Surgeons who regularly open 7mm incisions do so even for single hairs. Most times, even surgeons using ultra refined follicular unit grafting will use up to 1.1mm or 1.2mm for the larger 3 and 4 haired follicular units.


It’s extremely important for grafts to fit perfectly into recipient incisions. The grafts should not be forced into the recipient area. A forced fit often results in “popping” and cobble stones. Therefore, not only the size but also the depth of the incision is imperative.


Larger incisions create a greater risk of scalp trauma and prevent close graft proximity (dense packing).


Hair characteristics will also play a role in the graft's size, thus, the size of the incision.
