How Many Hair Grafts Should You Expect During A Hair Transplant?

Hair Replacement Surgery

Hair Transplant

During an FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair replacement surgery in Toronto, the patient can typically expect to pay based on the number of grafts that are required to obtain the desired result. In the average case, hair grafts can range from 500 to 2,500. If the patient requires more than 2,500 grafts, the procedure should be divided into 2 sessions that are 6 months apart. Typically, hair transplant rates are based on the number of grafts, and they can range from $5 to $7 per graft. Sometimes a single graft can contain up to 4 hair follicles, so this should also be kept in mind when estimating the costs for hair restoration in Toronto.

How Are The Number Of Grafts Determined?

The number of grafts will be determined during a consultation with the patient where the pattern of baldness is assessed and considered. This is usually done using the Norwood Scale – a visual scale of the stages of male pattern baldness. Depending on the patient’s place on the Norwood Scale, as well as the patient’s expectation for the outcome of the treatment, an estimate of the number of grafts necessary can be made.

How Long Does It Take To See The Results?

A part of the process of the FUE treatment is that the hair will fall out after 2 to 4 weeks. Though startling to see at first, it’s important to note that this is completely normal and expected.

The new hair typically begins to grow on its own within the 4- to 6 month mark. Not all of the follicles will grow, but over 90% do grow permanently and consistently. This is considered a permanent procedure, as the hair can be cut or shaved and hair will continuously grow back in its place just like healthy and natural hair.

The Advantages Of Hair Loss Treatment

Hair Transplant Procedures

One of the reasons that hair loss treatment and hair transplant procedures are so incredibly popular is that they are an undeniably effective way to restore hair for those with androgenetic alopecia. These procedures can produce dramatic results. For many men who have pattern baldness or patchy facial hair, this can increase and restore confidence in a way that makes a significant impact on their self-esteem. Many men are embarrassed by their thinning hair or their inability to naturally grow facial hair, and this can affect many aspects of their personal and professional lives. Men who have received hair replacement surgery in Toronto report that they feel much more comfortable with their appearance and no longer experience embarrassment due to their thinning hair.
