The number of donor follicles is limited, so,during forehead reduction, the surgeon should be extremely careful whenextracting the material. The “barbaric extraction of resources” is not welcomedat hair transplant centers in Germany and Austria; conversely, the amount of hair follicles taken is never more than requiredfor forehead hair transplant. Their number strictly corresponds to the optimal formation of the frontal hairline.
With this approach,forehead reduction with the help of hair transplantation ensures that absolutely all donor follicles will be grafted to baldpatches andareaswith thin hair. After the forehead hair transplant is completed, doctors explain tothe patient how manyfollicular unitswere used for the transplantation.
