I looked over your newhair.com site and noticed a wide variation in the amount of fullness with the same number of grafts between patients. For example, Patient BN has almost 2100 grafts and has a thin look, while Patient DP has 2500 grafts and had a full head of hair. If I go for a hair transplant, can I buy the fuller rather than the thinner look? I’d be willing to pay more.
For reference, these are the two patients you mentioned:
I looked at the subjects you were talking about. There are many differences between the two patient’s hair characteristics that could explain the difference in the results. The finer hair of Patient BN is only 1/3rd of the thickness of the hair that Patient DP has. The distribution of the grafts and the number of grafts placed per square inch of balding area is different. DP has a stronger hair character than BN and the size of the balding area is much greater for BN, despite what these photographs show.
People with finer hair have lived their entire life with a thinner ‘see through’ look, in contrast to the â€˜gorilla’ look of the coarser haired person. Your results will reflect the â€˜building’ materials your hair has in your donor area (like a 2×2 as compared to a 4×4 piece of wood). The key here is to give you a look like you had before you started to bald.
To answer your question, the fees are based on the number of grafts, not your hair characteristics.
