Are you considering having a hair transplant? If so, your head is probably full of questions like, ‘how many hair grafts do I need?’, or, ‘how many grafts can be taken from donor area?’

What is a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is when healthy hair follicles are taken from one part of the body and transplanted into an area that is bald or balding. There are three options available to you:

  1. FUE Hair Transplant in Turkey
  2. Hair Transplant DHI
  3. Laser Hair Regrowth Treatment

At Este, we offer high quality, expert hair transplants at our sister clinic in Turkey. We are the only clinic in the world to offer a holistic approach to hair transplants, and by that we mean we look at the whole picture.

Before transplanting, we make sure the area that is to receive the hair grafts is healthy and ready, and we do this by treating it with red light therapy to boost blood circulation and hair health.

How Many Grafts Do I Need?

When it comes to your hair transplant, and how many grafts will I need, it’s important to remember that everyone is different. If you’re wondering how many FUE grafts for crown, or you’d like to know how many grafts are needed for a full head, it depends on a few factors:

  1. How large the area to be treated is
  2. How thick you want the hair to be
  3. How bald the area already is

If you’re male and want to know what stage of hair loss you’re at, you can use the Norwood Scale to determine your level of hair loss. The Este Medical hair transplant for men can help whatever stage you’re at.

How Many Grafts does the Average Person Have?

In general, if you’re wondering, how many grafts do I need for FUE, the average hair transplant consists of 4000 grafts. This is usually suitable to cover the front, middle and crown (or vertex) with a decent density of hair.

How Many Hairs is 4000 Grafts?

People considering hair transplants often wonder how many hairs per graft there are. If you’re looking at having a transplant where 4000 grafts will be taken from your donor site, you’ll be pleased to hear that this should yield around 7200 – 8800 hairs.

Josh had 4345 grafts transplanted, which roughly equates to 10,863 hairs:

How Many Hair Grafts for Receding Hairline?

If you’re fed up of your receding hairline and want to regain a fuller head of hair, a hair transplant makes a wise move. With regards to how many grafts for hairline, you can expect to need anything from around 800 hair grafts to 1500. This will of course be discussed with you prior to your treatment, and it all depends on the thickness of hair, coverage needed, and area to be treated.

How Many Grafts for Beard Transplant?

Is your beard patchy? Has it never grown as full as you’d like it to? Thanks to hair transplant technology, you can now achieve a full beard using hair taken from another area of your body. A beard hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure carried out at our clinic in Turkey. Again, how many grafts you’ll need depends on whether you’re looking for a full beard, a moustache, a little designer stubble, or a goatee. In general, for a full beard, you’ll be looking at needing around 2500 – 3000 grafts.

Hair Transplant for Women

Hair transplant treatment is often thought of as a mainly male treatment, however it is suitable for women, too. Hair transplant for women can help address hair loss due to factors to do with hormone changes, medication, stress, depression, trauma caused by surgery, dieting, or even just because of tension caused by specific hairstyles.

What Results Can I Expect?

The hair transplant process takes time. To see the best results, you’ll need to sit tight and wait. With patience, and the right aftercare, you should see results kicking in at around six to nine months post treatment.
