Low Donor Density


Question: “For a male in their late twenties, what is the lowest donor density recomended for a successful transplant?”

Answer: “There is no simple answer to this question on donor density. Before advising the patient I would need to make sure that the person does not have Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia, which would reflect a depleted donor area in a young man (1-2% of the male population). I would also want to know size of the balding area and the eventual pattern of balding that would have to be maintained must be balanced in a well defined master plan with a worse case scenario put together. Come to me for a consultation or find a good doctor, they will be able to make an accurate analysis of your donor density.”
