FUE by Dr Reddy on a gentleman with Norwood 3, 1207 grafts / 4111 hair

33 year old gentleman with Norwood 3 hair loss. We transplanted 1207 grafts / 4111 hair in 1 day.

Before:




Immediately after:



6 months after:






Keep seeing this doctor producing results with so few grafts, what exactly is he doing differently?

Nice natural hairline but the numbers don’t add up, 1207 grafts / 4111 hairs, so in other words this guy has 3.4 hairs per graft? Isn’t that a bit high!

Good point, doesn’t make sense.

You are right, the numbers don’t add up, his hairline would be pluggy as hell if they were all 3.4 hairs per graft.

yes we need an explanation, it can’t be a typo because if you go back to older posts it’s more or less the same pattern as far as the graft/hair count is concerned.

The numbers aren’t clear at all. I see some growth though for 1200 FUE.

Maybe the given graft & hair numbers are just what was pulled from the donor. That would make sense if they were pulling a lot of 3/4 hair grafts and eventually dividing some of them up for hairline work. So the given grafts & hairs figures theoretically could be true.

With that strategy they would also end up implanting more individual grafts into the recipient area than they originally extracted from the donor (just not more total hair shafts). That would help explain why the results also seem a bit too impressive for the low graft counts.

He is a young patient with a lot of donor hair. Our objective was to preserve maximum donor hair and to take least number of grafts from the back. Dr Reddy always believes to extract chunkier grafts and he does divide them when needed. We believe the whole process is beyond scope of this forum. Please read this article written by Dr Reddy about hair graft ration in FUE:
http://www.restorehairclinics.com/Hair_Graft_Ratio_in_FUE

Is it pluggy? No. Does it look natural, yes.

What kind of pricing per-graft are we talking here?

I know it varies depending on the case, but would you be willing to say any kind of general range? Some places on earth do FUE for $4 (USD) and others charge $14.
