What is a graft?

There is no answer to that question because each patient is different. Typically one graft contains hair in groups of 1s, 2s, 3s, and 4s. While Follicular Unit Extraction, known as FUE doctor collects 3-4 hair into one graft. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. For average hair transplant Poland, which covers 1500 – 2000 grafts, surgery time is 8 hours. While surgery MD Artur Sandelewski – hair transplant specialist, uses tiny punches  (0.6mm and 1.0mm) to collects grafts. Due to extra small punches, the scarring after FUE Poland are invisible or might be seen under zoom. The final part of FUE abroad includes putting grafts from donor area to recipient area. Specialists say that 90% of transplanted grafts will grow.

How many hairs are in a follicular unit graft?

Typically there is 3 -4 unit of hair in one graft. The final quantity of grafts of hairs cannot be counted, as there are too many grafts and units of hair transplanted. Certain amounts might be given only in the case providing the patient with 10 grafts, so the surgeon may easily count new hair quantity.  In case patient wants to know how much new hairs are transplanted, the patient should count the quantity of grafts x 3 or 4. In case the patient has hair transplant procedure with 1500 grats it means that surgeon provided him with 6000 new hair units. Sound better, doesn’t it?
