500 grafts hair transplant

A 350 to 500 grafts hair transplant is most suitable for a beard transplant, moustache transplant or even an eyebrow transplant. As fewer hair follicles reside within this area, this means that a lower number of grafts is required a 500 grafts hair transplant should be suitable for your requirements.

How Many Grafts is Too Many?

The number of grafts needed will depend on the thickness of your current hair. The following should be appropriate for a hair transplant on average:

  • 1000 Grafts Hair Transplant
  • 2000 Grafts Hair Transplant
  • 3000 Grafts Hair Transplant

By using our Hair Graft Calculator, you can easily establish the best number of grafts for you. You can use the image and table below called the Norwood Scale to help estimate the number of grafts you will need. If you are still unsure your hair transplant surgeon will be able to offer their own expert advice.

How to Determine How Many Grafts are Needed

A number of factors must be considered when opting for a hair transplant. An 8000 grafts hair transplant for example may be far too much for your requirements, which is why it worth consulting one of our expert members of staff prior to your FUE hair transplant. The quality of your scalp can also be a key determining factor of the number of grafts required.

For a full head of hair, more grafts may well be required. A 4000 grafts hair transplant may be suitable for you, but this can be up to 6000.  The key elements we will consider when deciding if as few grafts as a 2000 grafts hair transplant or as many as a 4000 grafts hair transplant will depend on the following:

  • The size of the balding area

Depending on how much hair needs to be transplanted will determine whether you need a large or small number of grafts. The bigger the area, the more grafts required.

The number of hair grafts required will largely depend on the size of the bald area that the patient is looking to address. The bigger the size of the area, the larger the number of grafts will be required.

  • Extent of hair thinning

This comes into consideration when deciding if you need 1000, 2000, or 4000 hair grafts transplant. This also relates to your hair type, as well as whether we can determine if your hair will continue to thin or recede.

  • Quality of hair in the donor area

No matter the number of hair grafts, they will all be extracted from the donor area. This means that if the quality and quantity of donor hair available isn’t sufficient, we will not be able to extract as large of a number of hair grafts.
