What is a graft?

Graft Calculation

A follicular unit typically consists of 1 to 4 hair roots, and these follicular units are referred to as a “graft”. These units are extracted individually from the scalp using the FUE method with a micromotor and then transplanted into the problem zone. The micromotor has a sharp tip between 0.35 to 1.0 mm in diameter – a hollow needle. The diameter of the micromotor is adjusted according to the size of the hair. The hollow needle’s opening is so large that the hair can be taken up inside the needle. The diameter of the hollow needle’s opening is calculated and set following your examination on location; it is individually adapted to the patient. This produces no visible scars to the naked eye. The growth rate is nearly 99%.

Most patients ask us “how many” hairs will be implanted and grow successfully. However, the success of the transplant can only be seen about one year after your transplant. Before surgery, no one can predict precisely how many hairs will eventually grow.

*If you wish, our doctors can also extract and transplant more than 4000 grafts. Extracting more grafts is not a problem. The doctors can extract all of your grafts from the donor area. However, when more than 4000 grafts are transplanted, there is a risk that the blood flow over your scalp will not be sufficient to provide more than 4000 grafts with enough blood and nutrients. This often results in many grafts not growing. You can decide on the number of grafts you want to transplant on location, following a detailed computer analysis, directly with the doctors! The above-illustrated type classes are only intended as a guide for you.

The number of transplanted grafts can change. After an intensive examination by the doctors, the exact number of grafts is determined for you.

To identify the number of grafts required for your hair transplant, factors such as hair thickness, hair color, texture, and condition of the donor area, as well as your own needs, must be taken into consideration. All of these factors affect the cost of your hair transplantation.
