So would 130 individual hair strands amount to approx 50-60 fu/cm2? Same as a mid-range sort of fue?
No reason to think they wod cap it arbitrarily at 130 (why would they?), but it is nonetheless noteworthy that he grew precisely 128 hairs on 1cm2 on the mouse and he added that this was the same density as the Japanese average.
It seems a little low to me even for populations with naturally lower hair density. I think the average is more likely around 200+ for most populations on earth. Probably 300+ in a good deal.
I would have rather seen 250 hairs packed onto our little mohawk mouse! Just to put the full potential of this beyond any doubt.
hair transplants are useful to educate the expectations of male pattern baldness sufferers, which are unrealistic sometimes.
My original density in donor is 80 uf/cm2 (60 in some parts of the sides). Average; not high, but ok for multiple transplants.
Exceptional donor densities goes up to 120 uf/cm2; i.e. 240-250 hair/cm2. Forget about 300/400 hair/cm2; those numbers are for cats.
My transplanted density is 50 at most, ~40 in other places.
Believe me: 50 uf/cm2 (i.e. ~100 hair/cm2) with anagen 6 thick hair shafts is really ok. It provides coverage, and it does not signal hairloss.
So, come Tsuji, come. I'm educated and ready to accept and enjoy your dense gifts!
