One graft does not mean one hair. The PAI physician will harvest grafts with anywhere from one to five hairs, depending on the area of distribution, thus, 1200 grafts will mean an average of 5000 to 8000 hairs. This number of grafts, well distributed, will produce a natural hairline and the desired density and coverage.
Be aware that when more than 1200 grafts are taken, or if the surgery takes longer than 4 hours, the percentage of successful growth may be drastically reduced. To achieve the greatest level of successful hair growth, the doctors and nurses at PAI work with a conservative number of grafts.
