How many hair grafts do I need? This is one of the first questions which often people ask when they visit any Hair Transplant clinic. Though different clinics provide different answers, is it hard to be clear about what an individual requires?
How many hairs in a hair graft?
Hair does not grow as a single grouping, it grows in a bunch of 1, 2, 3 or 4 hairs. The grouping of hairs is known as a graft. On average, every individual has twice the hairs in each hair graft.
At Artius, the maximum number of grafts that is possible to transplant in a single day is around 4,000 by FUT or 2,000 by FUE. Total count estimates to approx 8,000 hairs by FUT or approximately 4,000 hairs by FUE. There are clinics that claim to transplant 4,000+ grafts in a single procedure. They actually refer to the number of hairs that are usually transplanted or more than what can be achieved. At Artius, our team includes highly skilled professionals who work on a large transplant. Our staff takes care to safely transplant large numbers of grafts while ensuring the survival of the graft.
What determines the number of grafts needed for a hair transplant?
The actual number of grafts required by each patient depends on the number of factors:
- The degree of thinning area
- Areas of baldness the patient would like to address
- The quality of hair in the donor area
- Hair transplant technique used (FUT or FUE)
- Prediction of hair loss in future
At Artius, our doctors do in-depth consultation with the patient which usually lasts an hour, followed by a medical check with our full team. During the appointment, the doctor discusses the transplant and tells about what you can expect post-surgery. Total cost is calculated as per the amount of donor’s hair you have and an accurate estimate is prepared on how many grafts are required to achieve this aim. After doing the detailed consultation, the surgeon can provide you an accurate estimation.
How many grafts in the average Hair Transplant?
An average hair transplant at Artius involves the transplantation of 1,500 grafts. It not only depends on how many grafts are transplanted but where the grafts are placed. Hair loss is progressive and transplanting the bald areas without thinking about the consequences can be catastrophic.
