How Can I Calculate the Number of Grafts I Need for Hair Transplant Surgery?

1/3/2012 1:21:34 AM


How many grafts are needed if you have stage 5 hair loss on the Norwood Scale?


A very rough approximation is 1,000 grafts per Norwood level. However, this can vary based on the characteristics of the individual's hair and also the patient's hair restoration goals. I recommend that you try out our interactive graft calculator.

For an even more precise estimate, contact one of the quality hair restoration physicians recommended by the Hair Transplant Network or schedule a free online consultation with the doctor of your choice by clicking here.
