Well we can do up to 60 per sq. cm but we do not recommend it because of significantly reduced survival rate if transplanted over 30 per sq. cm. Check the attached pdf file of the research paper: For example, if grafts are placed at a density of 50 FU/cm2 but only grow at a density of 40 FU/cm2, the results would still look good to the eye because a density of 40 FU/cm2 looks good. However, in reality this represents a loss of 20 percent of the grafts, which is unacceptable in hair transplantation due to the limited donor supply.
