How Many Follicular Unit Grafts Will I Need? Can You Recommend A Quality Hair Transplant Doctor in India?
Attached are my hair transplant preoperative pictures. I have been told that I need about 2400 follicular unit grafts, does that sound about accurate? Can you recommend for me an affordable and quality hair transplant doctor in India?
Without knowing your hair restoration goals, based on what I am seeing you are most likely going to need more than 2400 follicular unit grafts to achieve both full hair coverage and adequate hair density. Though it is more accurate to receive an estimate from a qualified hair transplant clinic, in my opinion and based on my experience in being a three time hair transplant patient, I would estimate that you would need approximately 4000 follicular unit grafts.
Some hair restoration physicians have the staffing capability, skills, and experience in that they might be able to accomplish this number of hair grafts in one single hair transplant session depending on your donor hair density and scalp elasticity. Other hair transplant surgeons lack the staffing and/or experience to do this large of a session and will most likely take more than one session to accomplish your hair restoration goals.
Keep in mind also that if you lose more additional natural hair, subsequent hair transplant procedures may be necessary as hair transplantation is NOT a hair loss cure.
Because you have diffuse hair thinning all over the scalp, it is critical at this time that you consider FDA approved hair loss medication such as Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxodil). This will hopefully help prevent future hair loss and may even strengthen the miniaturized hairs creating more natural hair density. In other words, these hair loss treatments might even regrow hair. Any transplanted hair placed in between or around natural hair created an additional risk of shock loss. Because of this hair loss drugs such as Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxodil) become an important part of the long term hair restoration plan.
Though I can understand that selecting a hair restoration surgeon based on affordability is attractive, hair transplant costs should be the last consideration.
At this time, we do not recommend any ethical and quality hair transplant physicians in India. If you are willing to travel outside of India however, the closest quality hair transplant physician to you is Dr. Mohmand who is recommended on the Hair Transplant Network.
If you are willing to travel a little further, Dr. Ferudini provides ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation and is a member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Surgeons.

Regarding hair transplant price, it is dependent on a number of things including the cost charged by the hair transplant clinic. Unfortunately, I do not have the prices memorized for all of our hair restoration clinics so it is best to contact them directly. Here is some general information on hair transplant costs.
I hope this helps.
