Can you explain more about the hair weight? You’re saying patient ones hair weighs more, and is 4 times thicker than patient twos thin/fine hair, which weighs 1/4 of first patient? Do I have that right? Is hair weight the same as hair volume?
How many grafts have each of those patients had? Both had the same amount of grafts?
Then how come every time someone gets a hair transplant they’re asked how many grafts they got? If 1,000 grafts on patient one could equal 4,000 grafts on another patient, the number of grafts doesn’t mean much without also knowing hair thickness/volume numbers as well. Do I have this correct?
Last question lol, when someone has fine hair being 1/4 the weight of average, do they usually have 4x the number of grafts in their donor area? So thick hair will have 4,000 total donor and fine hair can have 16,000 donor grafts?
Thank you I’m advance! This is a subject I’ve rarely seen talked about. It’s always ONLY how many grafts.
Think of this as building a fence. You have three types of wood 1×1″, 2×2″ and 4×4″. If you built the fence with 4×4 it would be a better fence than with 1×1, Four 1×1 = a singe 2×2 and four 2×2 equals a single 4×4. This is essentially comparable to fine, medium and coarse hair. Although the ratios are not the same a fine hair is 30 microns, a medium hair is 60 microns and a coarse hair is 90-100 microns, the metaphor does apply.
If this doesn’t explain it, please reply.
