These are the questions that someone who wants to undergo a hair transplant might have. In this article, we have discussed the answers to these questions in detail. So, continue reading to learn about these crucial details of a hair transplant procedure.

Can Someone Have Full Head Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure, which means nobody can undergo it without determining candidacy. Only those who are declared as good candidates by their surgeon can get a hair transplant. If a person does not qualify as the right candidate, he/she must not undergo it to avoid any mishaps.

It is possible to get a full head hair transplant. However, if someone is entirely bald, getting a full head of hair may be unlikely. A fuller head instead of a full head of hair can be expected after the transplant in such cases.

Hair transplants require a certain number of healthy hair follicles to be transplanted to the scalp. Usually, these follicles are extracted from the scalp’s backside (donor site). So, to get a full head of hair, the candidate must have enough healthy hair follicles available.

Although it is possible to extract hair follicles from other body parts, they don’t yield as natural-looking results as scalp hair. Therefore, patients who have gone entirely bald choose other hair restoration treatments like Scalp MicroPigmentation.

In any case, patients must keep realistic expectations from a hair transplant procedure.

How Many Grafts Are Needed For A Full Head?

In general, up to 4,000 hair grafts can be transplanted in one hair transplant treatment. If a person is completely bald, they must need a huge number of hair grafts to grow hair on all areas of the scalp.

Although it requires about 4000 hair grafts for a regular transplant, the number of grafts needed varies for each candidate. It depends on several factors, including:

  • hair characteristics
  • density
  • scalp laxity
  • head shape and size
  • facial features
  • aesthetic requirements

The total number of hair grafts required to regrow hair on the entire scalp varies from person to person. Therefore, it is better to consult your hair transplant surgeon to learn more about this.

1 graft = How many hair?

Hair grafts are a crucial part of hair transplantation. A graft refers to the skin’s strip that contains the hair. Grafts can be extracted from any body part, but usually, they are taken from the scalp’s backside. This region is also called the donor site. Moreover, hair grafts are taken from this region because it is baldness-resistant.

How grafts are extracted from the donor area varies for each hair transplant technique. In FUT, hair grafts are harvested from the linear strip extracted from the occipital scalp. On the other hand, in FUE, each hair graft is extracted individually from the scalp.

Human hair grows in the form of groups, called hair grafts, containing more than one hair. Each group has at least two hairs. However, a single hair graft can hold up to 4 hairs.
