What Factors Determine Hair Transplant Graft Count?January 4th, 2006
Q: Is it possible to tell me roughly how many grafts would be left from donor area if one had a hair transplant of 2,500 grafts and had a density of around 2.0? G.H. – New York, NY
A: How much hair can be harvested in total depends upon a number of factors besides donor density. These include: scalp laxity, hair characteristics (such as hair shaft diameter, color and wave), and the actual dimensions of the permanent zone.
Every person is different, so all of these factors would need to be taken into account to determine the total number of grafts that would be available for the hair restoration.Related Posts:
