How many grafts do I need for my hairline transplant?
Loss of hair is a natural process when it is between the limits that the body can restore them. When the capacity of the body to restore the hair loss is beaten by the excessive hair loss then we can name this situation something that should be treated. Women started to experience balding even more in the last 2 decades. It is getting more and more common also in women population. However it is also good to know that this problem is also treatable when it is present in women.
To obtain alive hair follicles implanted in higher rates, the latest technique being used is not the only manner, it is also affected by compliance of implantation area that we found a better way to improve as a result of our researches, The Organic Hair Transplantation. By this new and unique Organic Hair Transplantation Technique, before the extraction and implantation processes; we regenerate the implantation area with injection of stem cell enriched fat tissue. Regeneration of cells in target area before FUE transplantation with the support of stromal stem cells results in higher rate of alive thicker hair follicles.

For lowering your hairline, it needs 2700-3500 hairs (around 1500-2000 grafts) depending on the position of your mid frontal point. FUT strip surgery is recommeded for non-shave in the donor area.
How many grafts will I need
The number of grafts depends on the surface area you wish to cover. It is safe to transplant 45 grafts per square centimeter. A higher density may also produce a good yield but sometimes the yield is not as good. In studies performed, FUE actually produces a better yield than FUT so don't be mistaken by those who recommend FUT over FUE. The number of grafts you need will depend on where you wish to locate your hairline. A lower hairline will require more grafts. I would suggest that you will need 1200 to more than 2000 depending on the location you elect to have for your hairline. The cost will depend on the method you elect to have performed. The most expensive method will be a non-shaven FUE procedure. A partial shave of the donor area will be the next least expensive option for you. Shaven FUE is not a good idea for you.

How many grafts do I need ?
45-50 grafts per cm2 will be ok for a good performance.
On the other hand for female patients frontal hair line work should always planned with more grafts per cm2 if possible. You will need approximately 2000-2500 grafts, but a physical examination with a surgeon always is a good idea
All the best
