How Much Hair Density Can I Expect?

Proper allocation of donor supply generally allows restoring bald areas to 40-50% of their original density. As most people are not aware that their hair is thinning until they have lost 50% or more of their original density, patients who have or will develop extensive baldness (Class5-6) can generally be restored to this level.

It is expected that virtually all of the donor hair harvested will be transplanted and regrow. It is our policy that we place all of the grafts produced in each session.

Patients who have partial baldness or who elect to focus treatment on only part of their bald scalp can achieve density approaching that of youth. Individual variations in the amount and quality of donor hair influences what can be achieved.

Anticipated Hair Growth

It is expected that virtually all of the donor hair harvested will be transplanted and grow. It is our policy that we place all of the grafts produced in each session (even if we get more than the targeted amount), and in the rare instance growth rate is less than the anticipated 98-99%, we will replace lost grafts at no charge. Our current treatments are transplanted at 40 to 70 grafts/sq. cm.

Before and After

Hiding Old Hair Style Hair Transplants

When transplanting into old scarred areas in a revision case of old transplants done years ago, the growth rate will be somewhat less. This is because the scarring of the old section makes it difficult for the blood supply to get to the new grafts. Nevertheless, repair treatments do an excellent job of hiding old style hair transplants.
