Understanding Hair Grafts

To determine the next step in your hair recovery journey it is important to understand the specifics of hair grafting and its application. Simply put, a hair graft refers to a unit of hair follicles. The number of follicles in a single graft is not fixed but on average a hair graft contains 1-2 hairs. It should be noted that each graft is unique, and it may sometimes contain more follicles. This amount may depend on many factors like the type of the hair or the strength of the follicle but most importantly it relies on the density of the donor area. 

The hair transplant procedure aims to extract hair follicles from the donor area and implement these follicles as grafts to the target area where the patient may have the most amount of loss or balding. The viability of the grafting process is handled by the surgeon who is responsible for determining the donor area, carefully extracting the follicles, storing them before the operation and then finally transplanting the hair grafts to the target area. The amount of grafts that can be transplanted in a single session is limited due to the risk of compromising the viability of the transplants and risking the safety of the patients. After your surgeon determines the amount of grafts needed they will also determine the amount of sessions and grafts per those sessions for optimum results.


How many hairs does 3000 Grafts include? 


What is hair graft?


Each hair graft contains 1-2 hair follicles. That means there would be 5400 to 6000 hair follicles planted for a 3000 graft hair transplant operation. While this may sound like a lot of follicles for a single operation, there are cases that prove it is safe to remove up to 5000 hair grafts in a single operation without risking the viability of the follicles. So 9000 to 10,000 individual hair follicles can be removed from the donor area without visible thinness. If you feel like you may need more than 5000 hair graft transplants your doctor will suggest multiple sessions to get the desired density without risking the density of the donor area and the viability of the hair follicles.

Understanding the Norwood Hair Loss Scale

Understanding Norwood Hairloss Scale

There are different stages to hair loss or thinning which changes the methods of approaching a hair transformation journey or the possible treatments. In order to categorize different stages of hair loss a scale was created by Dr. James Hilton in the 1950s but since the scale was further developed by Dr. Norwood it came to be known as the Norwood scale. This scale is the most used system to classify male hair loss degrees. 


The Norwood Hair Loss Scale measures the progression and degree of hair loss: higher the number on the scale higher is the degree of hair loss. Where 1 represents little to no noticeable hair loss, 7 indicates very noticeably thinning and balding certain areas and a receded hairline.

How do you know if you are eligible for 3000 Grafts hair transplant?

Even though it is your surgeon that will give you the most precise diagnosis of your Norwood degree, you can also look at where you experience the most amount of hair loss to determine your eligibility for the number of grafts you may need. In the image you can see the zones that signify Norwood degrees of hair loss. If your hair loss is limited to the sides of the frontal hairline (Level 1) you may only need 500 hair grafts. If your hairline is receding further into your crown (Level 2) you may be eligible for 1000 – 1500 hair graft transplant. These levels are significantly less than a 3000 hair graft operation. 

If your hair loss is concentrated on the frontal and crown areas, you might be a level 3 to 4 in the Norwood scale. 3000 graft hair transplant procedure is usually suitable for Level 3 to 4 of Norwood scale hair loss degrees. Depending on your availability and hair health, you should be eligible for this graft with a single operation.


Which Hair Transplant Method is Best For Me?

When determining which hair transplant method is best for you the best course of action is booking a consultation with the clinic you are interested in. (You can book a free consultation with our team here!) However some background research never hurts anyone, in fact it will be beneficial to be aware of different hair transplant methods! 

Most popular hair transplant methods are FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and DHI (Direct Hair Implantation). In FUE the surgeon makes the incision to take the follicle from the donor area whereas in the DHI the surgeon will use a tool called the Choi Implanter Pen to extract and transplant simultaneously. 

While the two methods are somewhat similar in terms of recovery time and results, depending on the consultation your surgeon may suggest one over the other. If the amount of grafts is on the higher side your surgeon may request FUE since the follicles extracted are turned into grafts via channels. In DHI the extracted follicles are transplanted simultaneously with the tool thus the number of grafts may be lower. Depending on your hair’s Norwood scale degree you may need to opt for FUE instead of DHI.
