Graft Estimation

Best is to ask your physician/surgeon.  The area covered needs about 2200 to 2800 grafts.

Also important is to seek what the percentages of your multiple follicular units were during the procedure as that determines your hair count.

Graft Count

It is not not necessary to try and guess how many grafts that you had done. Every hair transplant surgeon will have some form of an operative report for their records. This will include information like how many grafts were extracted and placed. You can ask your hair transplant surgeon to see this report if you are that unsure of what was told to you.

Are not the best way to know the answer to this.  If you chose a reputable clinic/doctor then you can just ask them and trust the answer. Not all transplanted grafts grow so you want to make sure your odds are the best.
