Default How many graft do i need.

Hi All

Looking at my profile picture how many grafts do you think I need to get a good covering. Doesn't need to be thick but look ok.

Also any recommendations of clinics in the UK and Europe.

Regards

Judging from your photos you appear to be a Norwood 6 so you will require a large amount of grafts and most likely more than one procedure in your lifetime to reach your goals. Assuming your donor supply and skin laxity is average you are most likely looking at somewhere around 3000 grafts or more for the first time and possibly slightly less the 2nd time around. Meet with a few doctors or send some more photos to surgeons you're considering to get their opinion on your treatment.
