What size? (Hair Transplant)

Here is some more information concerning the punch.

Excellent question. The punch is driven straight down into the adipose. A score of the surface is made initially with a sharp punch. This is a relatively shallow score... 0.1mm at best. After the initial score, there is no need for a sharp punch. A blunt punch is typically used after the score. Why? Because adipose tissue is like butter for example. Butter is easily cut with a blunt instrument. A butter knife can cut butter.

The same goes for adipose tissue. A blunt instrument easily pushes into the adipose layer. Why is this important? Because, the follicle bulbs are contained within this layer. Why use a sharp instrument into this layer if it will chance transecting a graft? That is a major issue with sharp punch techniques. They continue to cut into the adipose without the need. The blunt punch can literally hit a bulb and it won't cut or smash it. It simply goes into the shaft of the punch.

Now the slot punch will do all of these things except while pushing into the adipose, it will also allow for the graft to slip into the slot and the physician can see the direction of the hair follicle. It is an added control step that Dr. Rose wants for his new tool.
