I felt it necessary to again provide pictures and commentary to the way we provide FUE by the surgically advanced follicular extraction or SAFE. Please understand that there are many physicians out there that perform FUE with great care and quality. My threads are to bring to light how one office performs this technique. The key here is that I am now proving over and over that a 0.75mm punch is sufficient to extract great quality grafts as well as prove that 3’s, 4’s and 5’s are unharmed by this size punch. Why am I hammering this point home? Because again… When you have the opportunity to start out with a small punch, then that will also result is a less chance for scarring. Our range is from 0.75mm to 1.0mm. We try to stick or “titrate” to the lowest millimeter number that effectivily will produce quality grafts.
