Do I need 4000 grafts for a hair transplant?

The size of the bald or sparse area defines the extent of the transplant procedures. Your surgeon can determine how many hair grafts you need for achieving a dense full head of hair depending on how wide the recipient area is and at what stage you are on the Norwood scale.

type 4 norwood hair loss scale

The Norwood scale classifies the significant stages of male pattern baldness. People who fall into a specific Norwood category usually show similar signs of hair loss and approximately need a similar amount of hair grafts to be transplanted. The Norwood stage 4 is known by the characteristics of the thinned band between bald vertex and receded hairline. If you are at this stage, you might need a 4000 grafts hair transplant to cover up the balding area.

Which technique is used?

Transplanting 4000 hair grafts is not an easy procedure. However, thanks to the technological and technical developments in hair transplants, it is now possible to transplant such a high amount of hair grafts without creating an unnatural appearance.

For the 4000 grafts hair transplant, the follicular unit extraction (FUE) and direct hair implantation (DHI) methods can be followed.

FUE method

The FUE method is one of the most frequently operated hair transplant procedures in the world. This method still is the leader in successful transplant operations.

The FUE method involves extracting the individual hair grafts and transplanting them into micro-incisions. Because this method offers high control on the extraction and transplantation of each individual hair graft, it gives natural results. Also, FUE method lets surgenos tocover wide areas within one session which is a big advantage for patients who are short in time.

DHI method

The DHI method is very similar to the FUE method but it differs in the implantation technique.

This method involves the use of the Choi pen after the extraction procedure. The Choi pen allows direct implantation of hair grafts without the need for creating micro-incisions before the transplantation. However, because the DHI technique is much more meticulous than the FUE method, it is not possible to transplant 4000 grafts as fast as FUE method.

Even though this might seem like a disadvantage, it might actually lead to a more natural result because your surgeon can adjust according to the results of the first session.
