Dr. Jerry Wong: 5,170 grafts

Dr. Jerry Wong: 5,170 grafts

Postby DelColorado » Sat Apr 10, 2010 6:28 pm

Most doctors that viewed my pre-op pics were not very encouraging regarding the number of grafts they thought possible. I was classified as Norwood 7 (very little donor hair available). Based on these respected opinions, I had low expectations and thought I'd be lucky to get 2500 grafts. After viewing my pictures Dr. Wong quoted me 3000 grafts. When I saw him on the day of surgery he said that he could get more grafts because of my skin laxity and my dense donor hair. Given the fact that I'm 55 years old, Dr. Wong recommended a hairline that was appropriate for my age and which would also allow for more coverage over the top and back of my head. The final count: 5,170 grafts!!

Wow, that is a lot of graphs. Sometimes the terminology gets confusing. Is that the number of Follicular units or the number of indiviudal hairs. There are on average 2.2 hairs per FU.

What is a graft?

Postby DelColorado » Wed Apr 14, 2010 12:26 am

This may help to answer your questions regarding FU's or individual hairs. I found the following on a website and I think it clarifies what hair translplant docs would consider a graft:

4374 grafts-7/2/2008-
485 singles
2336 doubles
1526 triples
16 quads
9809 total hairs

I understand what the terminology means. That was just my polite way of asking you to confirm that you understood what the terminology meant, and that you in fact received 5,170 FU grafts and not 5,170 individual hair grafts.
