Que: I am sending you a picture of where my balding areas are and I have marked where I would like to have the hair transplant. I was wondering if you could tell me approximately how many grafts I will need?
Ans: The number of follicles or grafts that you will require is actually dependent on several factors – where you want the hairline to be, how progressive your hair loss is, how large your donor area is and so on. Hair reconstruction is based on certain principles and these are something that only your doctor will be able to explain to you, after having examined you properly. It would be best that you meet a doctor and get all these queries clarified directly, after a proper examination.
