How many hair grafts are needed for a hair transplant?

For example, if a patient had a 2,000 graft hair transplant procedure where the 4-hair grafts were split up into 1- and 2-hair grafts, either through poor dissection or intentionally, the new procedure would now have 2,400 grafts with exactly the same number of hairs.

When to use the upper range of hair graft numbers?

Hair graft numbers in the upper part of the range are considered when the donor supply is adequate. For very large sessions, it is preferable to cut the existing hair in the transplanted area (if there is any) very short.

What happens if there are too many hair grafts?

As the number of hair grafts placed per unit area (density) rises, so does the risk of vascular compromise (decreased blood flow to the area caused by injury to the scalp) and this may result in sub-optimal graft growth.

How are follicular units used in hair transplant?

As a word of caution, in Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation, stereo-microscopic dissection is used to dissect naturally occurring 1-4 hair follicular units from the donor area. If these units are kept intact in the dissection, growth will be maximized and a hair transplant patient will get the greatest possible fullness and density.
