How mny grafts will I need. I am 33 years old (photo) – WRassman,M.D. BaldingBlog
Both sides have identical recession as shown here.
Assuming that you just want to fill in the corners and create a normal mature hairline, and assuming that your hair is at least medium in thickness in the back of your head, it would take about 1500-1700 grafts, depending upon where you and your surgeon place the exact location and shape of the hairline. A coarse, hair will drop the numbers while fine hair will increase the numbers. I have been doing hair transplants for 32 years and adjust the graft numbers to the donor supply, the balding pattern, the donor density the donor hair thickness and getting to know the patient and his expectations, so even the above estimate may change.
