Question:

Just curious, in terms of getting good density from a hair transplant, how many grafts per cm2 would be needed?

Answer:


Achieving a 50% density level of original scalp density is a good goal to start with. It's been said that achieving 50% density will provide a good basis to support the illusion of coverage. Obviously in some cases a little more and in others with outstanding hair characteristics, a little less.

So the bottom line is that it will vary between individuals, depending on the degree of hair loss and their individual hair characteristics.
