Question:How many grafts can be done in a single session?
Answer:The number of grafts depends on several factors. Your donor area will determine how many grafts are possible for you (how thick your hair is in the donor area), and the surgeon will determine how many grafts you need. You may think that you need 4000 grafts but your donor area may only supply 2700. Dr. Epstein has done 4500 grafts on a patient in a day, although the conditions (donor hair density and need) rarely allow this.
