The majority of FUE doctors will have up to about 4% - 10 % transaction rates. In other cases, only a hand full of clinics would have a 4% or less transection rate. Clinics that perform mostly strip usually destroy at least 5% of the donor FUs surrounding the strip incision. Many doctors don’t disclose this information and don’t want it to be made public.
You are correct, we absolutely do selectively extract each FU and place the extracted FUs in the recipient area. Each graft has better coverage value than FUE and allows for natrual looking results. Our approach to harvesting a donor area is very effective because we don’t fractionate any of the grafts that we transplant. The average amount of hairs in each CIT graft is 2.9 and 2.5 for most FUE clinics. Our actual tools and wide variety of tool configurations enable us to minimize transection.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce several cases involving advanced hair loss and were successfully treated with fewer transplanted grafts. The low graft counts will provide excellent coverage. There has not been a result that fellow forum viewers would see as being unnatural. Take a look.
