Hair Transplant is in the mind of a person who wants to do it; the most important question is how many grafts/follicles required. Hair loss patient normally mixed number of grafts with number of hairs.
In hair transplant the basic structure of the graft is taken and then planted it on the bald scalp, the micro grafts and mini grafts, which contain 1 hair graft, 2 hairs graft, 3 hairs graft and may be the maximum of 4 hairs graft. Each hair element is positioned at the foot of a hair follicle; a hair follicle can produce only a hair.
So, this means that how many hair grafts/follicles implanted will impact on how many hairs will appear. If a patient received a 1 hair grafts only then the number of grafts equals to number of hairs. Otherwise, in hair transplants surgery grafts is of different types from 1 to 4 hairs grafts will change the number of hairs to grow.
For example if a hair transplant patient receive 4000 grafts/follicles, means equal to 10000 hairs, generally the average per follicle/graft is 2.5 hairs. So a patient can calculate accordingly.
So numbers of graft/follicle plays an important role in hair transplant surgery, the number of grafts can actually give the actual number of hairs growth and off Course the cost of hair transplant in depend on number of grafts.
In transplant surgery naturalness is the key of a successful restorative surgery, to give natural look all grafts/follicles which contain single hair transplanted on the front hair line. A hair line is an art in which a hair restorative surgeon can try to give as close as natural, the angle of hairs is very important and the grafts to implant must be single. Double and triple grafts put right back there with an intense and often it is better to view.
Clinics, normally confuse patients with the names grafts/follicles and hairs, they discuss that; Donor area will donate that much of hairs, and some clinics talk about grafts/Follicles. So due to that much of confusing mixture patient normally makes their mind that he/she will receive hairs instead of grafts. But in actual they receive number of grafts. Nobody can calculate accurate number of hair; the only accurate number the patient receives is grafts/follicles.
In conclusion a number of grafts in a restorative surgery is one of the important factor to achieve a good results, the more grafts will ultimately leads to an outstanding results, will give more density, everyone needs a decent density, but normally with transplant we cannot achieve density like once we have but a surgeon can distribute it in a way to give a good coverage and a decent density.
