Is there risk of damaging hair follicles?

FUT/Strip: The scalpel might damage 10 % or more of the grafts during removal from the donor area or when grafts are divided. Using a microscope can minimize the risk of damage.

FUE IM: The risk of damaging grafts is minimal with FUE IM. The doctor determines and pick which individual grafts to be transplanted and can always avoid disturbing or even destroying nearby hair follicles.
