Trimmed and non-trimmed follicular unit grafts
Both trimmed and non-trimmed follicular unit grafts can produce good results in hair transplant surgery. However, there are some differences between the two techniques.
Trimmed grafts are usually smaller in size and have less tissue surrounding them. This can make them easier to place in the recipient area and can result in a more natural-looking hairline. However, trimming the grafts can also damage the hair follicles and reduce their survival rate.
Non-trimmed grafts, on the other hand, are larger and have more tissue surrounding them. This can make them more difficult to place in the recipient area, but they also have a higher survival rate and can produce thicker, more robust hair growth.
Ultimately, the choice between trimmed and non-trimmed grafts will depend on the individual patient’s needs and the surgeon’s preferences and experience. It’s important to discuss the pros and cons of each technique with your surgeon before making a decision.
