I have had 3 consultations and each one told me that I needed a different number of grafts. One doctor quoted 4000 grafts, another 3500 grafts and a third 3000 grafts. It is very confusing. My hair is a medium weight hair (I know you always ask) so I am asking you what you think I need for grafts.
Too many doctors or clinics push up the number of grafts well beyond what you need. With a medium weight hair, I doubt that you will need more than 2000 grafts to lower the hairline and bring the corners down. The reason that the numbers you heard were high is because too many doctor think about grafts as $$ in their pocket, more grafts more $$ for them. For the patient like you, too many grafts deplete your permanent hair supply and if you found yourself balding as you got older and did 4000 grafts for the front now, you might find yourself without any hair reserves for future balding.
