4300 Grafts in one Surgery
One of our recent patients was a gentleman who received 4300 grafts for a total of 8650 hairs, all in one hair transplant session. I’ve include some post op photos for you to see some close-ups. I’ll be updating his photos as he goes through his recovery and progresses.
So, why is this so important?
You’ve heard me talk about the many clinics that claim they can obtain 4000 or more grafts from a donor site, but when looking at the coverage area, it looks more like 2000. Unfortunately, most clinics will misrepresent reality by talking about the number of hairs rather than the number of grafts. While many clinics are talented enough to get 4000 hairs in one pass, there’s only a few with the skill to get 9000.
What this Means for your Hair Transplant
What this means when you are considering hair transplant surgery is really very simple. For 2000 grafts (not hairs), you will spend around $6000 HST. Our gentleman who received 4300 grafts spent $9000. That’s a $3000 difference for half the coverage.
So, now you need a second surgery of 2000 grafts and spend another $6000. That’s a total of $12,000 and two hair transplant surgeries, with a one year waiting period in between. Then you have the two years before you are going to see your final results. I think we can agree that this approach doesn’t make any sense at all.
I can’t stress enough how important it is to only go to the best. Results and photos can’t lie. This gentleman received almost complete coverage in one pass. This is something very few clinics can accomplish.
Keep in mind that these photos were taken within thirty minutes of the procedure being completed. Within a week, he’ll be healed. Watch for his up-coming ten day post op photos.
