1500 Graft Hair Transplant: Coverage, Results, Costs

When you’re considering a hair transplant, it’s important to know what you can expect your results to look like. Different graft quantities create different results depending on hair density and texture, so prospective patients should be aware of what coverage they can expect from their transplant.

In this article, you’ll learn what a 1500 graft hair transplant looks like (with real patient examples), as well as the cost and surgery duration for this type of transplant.

Is 1500 grafts enough to restore your hairline?

It depends on the amount of hair you’ve lost along your hairline. Clinics measure male pattern baldness using the Norwood Scale. A 1500 graft hair transplant is usually needed when hair loss approaches stages 3-4 of the scale:

Stage 3 is where hair loss patients start to see significant hair loss across the temples. Early crown hair loss characterises stage 3 vertex. It’s estimated that Jimmy Carr’s hair transplant consists of around 1500 grafts, as he was at roughly stage 3 of the Norwood scale when he underwent his FUE procedure.

By stage 4, both the temples and crown are affected. If you’re approaching advanced stage 4 hair loss, you may need more than 1500 grafts to restore your hair.

Cost of a 1500 graft hair transplant

Based on the average cost of a UK hair transplant, a 1500 graft hair transplant costs approximately £4,875. At the Wimpole Clinic, you can get an FUT hair transplant from £2,999, or FUE from £3,499. Find out more about our hair transplant pricing.

You’ll pay more for a hair transplant at a reputable clinic. You’re paying for the team’s skill, knowledge, and experience, as well as the upkeep of the facilities — which ultimately makes the procedure safer and more successful. So although you can find cheap hair transplants abroad (and some within the UK), you’re more likely to see results and avoid complications with a reputable clinic.

1500 graft hair transplant surgery duration

FUE surgery is usually slower than FUT, so if you opt for the former, expect to spend a little more time in the chair. (This is offset by FUE’s faster hair transplant recovery time.)

Most patients who have around 1500 grafts are in surgery for approximately 5 hours. But you’ll also need to arrive earlier to prepare for surgery, and stay for a while after your procedure so clinic staff can monitor your immediate recovery. So you should plan to be at the clinic all day.

1500 grafts is lower than the average number of hair grafts needed, at least for an initial procedure [1]. However, other patients with less advanced hair loss can also get hair transplants with fewer grafts.
