How To Estimate The Number of Grafts

Each doctor has a specific way of estimating how many grafts you need for your situation. How much each doctor charges to harvest from the back is the same, but how much they charge to distribute it is different. Depending on how a doctor chooses to divide up one, two, or three hair grafts, you may get the same number of hairs but with a different number of grafts. Graft to hair ratio can be taught about as pizza, you can divide pizza into 8 slices, 16 slices, or 24 slices, the slice's size changes but the overall pizza size doesn't. The same concept applies to hair, you can have multiple hairs covered by a single graft, but in the end, the amount of hair covered is the same.
