    I had a transplant a long time a go with the olf plugs recently i went back and had 400 minis put in front to soften that, they grew in pretty well but my hair is too fine to cover very well so i went back for 400 more. Almost none of the 2nd batch grew in. Can you offer any explanation? My dr. is at a loss.

    Also I have a patch about4 inches in diameter that is ver thin nearly bald, roughly how man mini grafts will it take to make this area fairly thick?

    Brian,

    It normally takes up to a full year before your transplanted hair has grown in completely and at full thickness. So if it is less than one year since your last procedure it may be too early to judge your final results.

    However, poor growth is typically due to poor handling and placement of the grafts.

    I suggest you use our “Graft Calculator” at http://www.hairlosslearningcenter.org/mm/introa.html

    to get a feel for the amount of follicular unit grafts you might need to achieve the look of fullness in a give area.

    Best wishes, Pat
