How Many Hair Follicles Can Be Transplanted During a FUE Hair Transplant?

Depending on the thickness of hair on the donor area, around 2.500 to 5.000 hair follicles can be extracted during a FUE hair transplant. The numbers here represent only the number of hair follicles or in other words the hair grafts.

Each hair follicles contains around two to three hair strands in them, and when we say “We extracted 3.000 hair follicles”, it means that we extracted about 7.500 hair strands. When we say “We extracted 5.000 hair follicles in a hair transplant”, it means that we extracted up to 12.000 hair strands.
