Does your hair fall? Have there been baldness and thinness in some areas? If your answers are yes to these questions, hair transplantation is a great solution for you. You can regain your old look with hair transplantation performed by expert surgeons. You may need a different number of grafts depending on the size of the bald and sparse areas. Again, depending on these issues, the cost of hair transplantation may vary.

So, how many hair grafts do I need for hair transplantation? How many hair strands are 1 graft equal to? How much does it cost? Comprehensive guide for all the questions you have in mind.

1 Graft = How Many Hair Strands?

How many hair strands are there in a graft? Graft is not the name given to a single strand of hair. Hair strands grow in groups, not individually. These groups are called grafts. These groups can be single, double, triple, or quadruple. However, generally speaking on average it can be said that there are 2 hair strands in each graft.

How Many Hair Grafts Do I Need for Hair Transplantation?

As the size of the bald and sparse areas of the candidates will differ, the number of grafts needed also varies. However, on average, 600 grafts will be sufficient for low-level losses and 3000 grafts for heavy losses.

The size of the bald areas directly affects the number of grafts that will be needed. If the related area is completely bald, more follicles may be needed. However, if there is no complete baldness and it is only aimed to increase the density in the relevant area, this problem can be resolved with fewer grafts.

How Much Do Hair Transplantation Grafts Cost?

The total cost of hair transplantation varies depending on the number of grafts to be used and the technique to be preferred. The cost is directly affected depending on which of the techniques such as FUE and DHI is preferred.

Generally, costs are calculated per graft. The larger the bald area, the more the cost tends to increase. However, how much healthy hair there is in the donor area and your doctor’s other treatment recommendations are also important points.

There are different factors that affect the number of follicles to be transplanted.

Density in the donor area is quite important. The neck and above-ear sections are generally preferred as the donor area. The hair here is more resistant to falling. Candidates usually have more than 5,000 grafts in their donor area. This figure means at least 10,000 hair strands. This quantity easily meets the need for hair transplantation.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What Happens If Enough Grafts Cannot be Collected From The Donor Area?” color=”peacoc” custom_font_container=”tag:h3|font_size:25|text_align:left|color:%231f9ac6″ custom_google_fonts=”font_family:Anton%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” custom_css_animation=”fadeInDown” use_custom_heading=”true”]The neck and side sections are preferred as the donor area. The grafts collected from here for transplanting are transferred to the related areas. However, if there are not enough grafts in these locations, different parts of the body are checked. Hair in the beard and chest area can be used. Even leg hair can be preferred. However, the decision should be made by your doctor and the procedure should be performed in a fully equipped clinic.
