1- The grafts needed vary depends on the type of hair, the size of head and the density of grafts in the donor area, then your expert will maintain the ability to extract the needed grafts considering your safety as a priority.

A hair graft (follicle) is the mammalian skin organ that produces hair.
There are types of hair graft, which are the single, double, and triple graft; where the single is transplanted in the front of the head, and the double and triple are transplanted in the middle of the head, which means that the 2000 grafts will contain 4000 to 6000 hair roots.
Before the hair transplant procedure, your expert determines the number of follicles needed, after evaluating the density of the donor area, then he opens small channels in the bald area considering the dimensions of the original hair, and then implants the extracts.
For example, if the doctor wants to extract 4000 grafts, that means he needs between the 9000 to 1200 hair roots.
Your doctor will determine the needed grafts in your first examination session using his specific medical tools where the extracted grafts should be taken from the patient himself.
