Graft quality is a significant component of all hair restoration surgery, especially with the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique and conveys a large impact on the final cosmetic result of the procedure.
Grafts of high quality have supportive tissue throughout and contain minimal transections, follicle fractures, and crushed follicles.
Transection and stripped and severely splayed follicles are by-products of the punch insertion technique.
Follicle fractures and crush injury are consequences of the amount and type of force used to remove the grafts once they have been scored and dissected.
Grafts of high quality are amenable to placement without undue manipulation or placement trauma. Grafts of lesser quality caries more risk of damage during processing and implantation.
