Maximum Possible Hair Grafts During A Hair Transplant
Each year, nearly a million people opt to get a hair transplant to solve their hair loss issues once and for all. The increasing popularity and demand for high-quality, low-cost hair transplants have turned Turkey into the hair transplant capital of the world. Before opting to get a hair transplant, it is important that you know the details of the procedure. There are misconceptions surrounding the number of hair grafts one person can get and thus we have decided to write this article to clarify just that.
Many people would like to know how many hair grafts it is possible to have extracted and implanted during a hair transplant session. During the course of a single hair transplant session, the maximum number of grafts that can be implanted is usually between 5000-5000. In addition, over the course of a person’s lifetime, the maximum number is around 7000 grafts.
Why Not Extract and Implant More?
A very common question we get asked during our hair transplant consultation is: “Can you implant more grafts?”
It is not an unreasonable question as patients want to get as much done in one sitting as possible. A patient wants to obtain the best possible results so that they don’t have to undergo any surgeries in the future. It sounds logical to give every patient 5000-5500 grafts in one sitting but that is not the case when it comes to hair transplantation. Hair transplant surgery is not about what you want, it’s about what you need depending on your situation.
5000-6000 grafts are what is needed to cover a bald scalp from front to back with sufficient hair density and thickness. If you only need 2000 grafts then it is best not to over-extract from your donor area as once it is gone, it is gone. If you need donor hair sometime in the future for whatever reason, you will have a problem.
How Many Hairs In A Hair Graft?
You should know that hairs do not always grow in a singular form. Hair usually grows in groups of 2, 3, or 4 grafts. The technical term for this is follicular units. This is where the procedure name ‘Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)’ comes from. The average person’s hair usually has 2-3 grafts.
What Determines The Number Of Grafts Needed?
There are various factors that determine how many grafts a patient will need. Most patients that come to us require on average around 3000 grafts. In the most severe cases of hair loss, two hair transplant sessions are required. The sessions usually occur 8-12 months apart. Attempting to implant too many hair grafts in one session can destroy the donor area permanently.
