What is the Ideal Punch and its characteristics for FUE hair transplant?

FUE punch- how fine?

At our clinic at Chandigarh, India we use the following punch type and calibre for various indications-

    1. Only a new Harris’ blunt punch is used for all clients. The client can order his own punch from the company and get it along on the day of the surgery or make sure that the punch wrapper is opened in front of him. A new punch for each surgery is essential since the result of FUE hair transplant depends on atraumatic extraction of hair follicles.
    2. For scalp FUE graft harvest, 0.75mm punch size can easily remove upto 3 hair-follicular units.
    3. For body hairs, we use 0.6 mm for single hairs. We mostly get single hairs from the body- chest, beard, underarms, pubic regions, etc.

It is very important that you insist that the doctor uses the correct punch- the punch you have paid for.
This is one aspect of FUE hair transplant people do not care to bother about.
