What is Hair transplant & How is it Performed?

Hair transplant is a very simple process but needs high level of accuracy at the same time. In hair transplant, hair grafts or follicles are extracted from the donor area ( the hair on the back of the head ). Afterwards the extracted grafts would be implanted on the targeted areas using the latest methods.

The hair transplant is not a major procedure , yet  it requires high level of accuracy and experience.

How are the grafts extracted and how are they implanted?

First thing is , the grafts are extracted carefully by a tool called Micro-motor machine. After dividing the back of the head ( the donor area ) into cm2 for every 30-40 grafts, the surgeon starts extracting the grafts in a pattern form for every 1cm2 in order not cause any damage to the donor area.

After the grafts are extracted they will be kept in a hypothermosol solution which keeps the grafts alive in order to implant them later.

So how are they implanted then? the extracted grafts will be implanted after dividing the head into 5 targeted areas which are : Front – Sides – middle & Crown areas. Mostly grafts are divided and filtered to : uni hair grafts – double hair grafts – triple hair grafts or quadrable hair grafts.

The hair impalnt plan is usually as the following :

-The uni-hair grafts are implanted on the front.

-The double-hair grafts are implanted on the sides.

-The rest of the grafts can be implanted on the rest of the head.

All of this of course after dividing the head for cm2 means 30-40 grafts implanted in every cm2 on the whole head.

Now before implanting there is the most important step in the whole procedure which is Opening channels.

Why opening channels are important ?

Because when opening the channel the surgeon should be experienced enought to sens the depth of the channels to implant the grafts without causing any damage to the nerves beneath. The second reason is that the surgeon should adjust the hole of the channel according to the hair direction which needs high level of skill and experience.

All of the previous details will be openly discussed with your consultant before undergoing the procedure itself.


The duration of the procedure ranges between 6 to 8 hours, including a break period of 30 minutes for rest and eating in the middle of that time period.

Anesthesia is given locally without pain using NFI technology.
There are still some possible side effects (temporary bleeding, swelling in the forehead and around the eyes, itching, numbness), but they gradually disappear within the first week of the operation.
The period of full recovery needs ten days to two weeks.

Hair Transplant In Turkey | Techniques

Hair transplant, has a very wide base of options whether its about technique, number of grafts or areas to be implanted.

For example,  there is the ability to choose between two main latest techniques which are the FUE SAPPHIRE or DHI ( CHOI PENS )

Both of these techniques has its own characteristics and advantages . But which technique to be used is determined by your consultant according to your hair condition and the balding area.

In conclusion both of the FUE SAPPHIRE & DHI CHOI are effective if applied to the suitable hair condition for each technique .

Now you might be asking, what are the grafts and how to know if my bald area will be covered or not ? the grafts are simply the tissue that holds the hair beneath the skin.In other words its the root of the hair inside your skin. The number of the grafts is determined after checking the condition of the hair on the back of the head which also can be determined by your consultant very easily after receiving clear pictures .

Now , as we mentioned previously how to know if the number of grafts are good enough to cover the bald area on the top of the head ?

The answer is simple, the space of the gap or the baldness and your donor area decides that. This means that if your bald area is not wide and the donor area is okay we can extract for example 3000 grafts to cover the balding area.


Needle-Free Injection technology

 is used for this type of local anesthesia.

The device uses air pressure to inject the local anesthetic medication into the skin through its silicon heads.

The air pressure ensures a super-fast (less than one-third of a second) penetration through the skin.

Up to 0.5 ml/50 units of any subcutaneous liquid medication can be applied in one shot.

Needle-Free Anesthesia or Needleless Numbing decreases the pain by 70%

You will not feel any pain after the numbing process that is either performed by the traditional method or the needle-free anesthesia..


FUE Sapphire pen hair transplant contains a pointed head made of sapphire that gives the scalp a smooth texture and prevents inflammation of the cracks and redness caused by traditional metal blades.
and since the Sapphire pen is used to open the channels which is considered the most important stage in the fue hair transplantation surgery.

it primarily contributes to the success of the operation and to obtain an ideal result, instead of using steel blades.

Tissue recovery will be faster in comparison to the steel blades, acidity will be prevented, and the bonded skin will have a smooth surface, meaning no scars left behind.

DHI Hair Transplant

DHI DIRECT HAIR IMPLANTATION (CHOI PENS)  technique is performed through Choi pens, So after extracting the grafts from the donor area, the hair follicles are placed one by one inside the Choi pen.

Choi pens implanters range from 0.5-1.5 mm according to each hair follicular size and type and that’s why 2-6 choi implanters are utilized for implantation that work as push pens. each pen contains a pointed and hollow cavity we insert the hair follicles inside one by one.

and through which the channel is opened and the follicle gets implanted all at once simultaneously by only one press.

This technique is characterized by the density of implanted hair, for example,

if we implant with the traditional technique 40 grafts in a cm2, we can implant approximately 60 grafts per cm2 in the DHI technique. 

Fue Hair Transplant

FUE technique is based on extracting the follicles from the donor area (behind the ears) using an electrical device (micro-motor) that contains sharp disposable punches assembled at the tip it measuring approximately 0.8-0.9 mm in width and are 5-6 mm in length that is used to internalize the hair over the scalp in a proper slope with the angle of hair growth and extract it one by one from inside by the high rotational movement of the device, then once the grafts are freed,they are collected by the aid of special collets and kept in isotonic saline solution. hairs grow in groupings that are called follicular units, and each follicular unit comprises groups of 1 to 4 hairs that grow in clusters spaced with a short distance away from other other neighboring follicular unit cluster, so accordingly each follicular unit requires a hollow head(punch) of a specific diameter.

Hair transplantation needs high level of experience surgeons and technicians to be done perfectly without flaws so make sure to take your time and to think carefuly before doing it .

Why is the post operation instructions are very important  ?

The answer is simply because after the operation the implanted area is very sensitive to any kind of contact which means that any wrong touching, may cause damage to the implanted grafts.

As we mentioned before, hair transplant is very effective but whats even more important is the post operation instructions. After the operation you should be instructed what to do and what not to do.


Beard is considered a man’s accessory with its dense and decent appearance, but most men often have bad luck for not having a full beard for many reasons that may be hereditary or just suffering of facial alopecia.

Choi pens technology is preferred for women because it does not require shaving all the hair and because. Read More…

Now can a woman do hair transplant ?

Yes, hair transplant for women goes by the same process as men except for the grafts are extracted from beneath the hair that they have already.

Mostly women doesn’t need to shave their head for hair transplant but in some other cases it is necessary to shave in order to see the channels.

Women also suffer from hair loss whether its because genetic , hormone issues or pregnancy thats why women also are strong candidates for hair transplant.


Hair transplant is done without shaving for people who need hair transplantation in limited places: for example, the front of the head, or hairline transplantation. Hair transplant techniques have an impact on hair transplantation without shaving, as when there are wide and scattered spaces in the balding place, the entire head of hair must be shaved. Although this can be bypassed with DHI technology that involves hair transplantation without full shaving that is particularly beneficial for women’ s hair transplant surgery but yet the donor area must be shaved in order to extract the hair follicles.

What about hair transplant without shaving ?is it possible?

In some certain cases YES but not mostly. For example if someone needs to add some more density for the front then it can be done without shaving
if someone needs to get implants for front and crown it should be all shaved .Keep in mind that the back of the head or the donor area is shaved under any circumstances.

What happens after hair transplant?

When will the results of hair transplant start appearing?

By the end of the first month post operatively, the hairs will fall out, but the implanted follicles will remain under the scalp until they start producing new hairs over again, and this will be noticed within the end of the third month after the operation.
After passing of six months, you will get a satisfactory result of 50 to 60%, and the percentage will continue to rise gradually every month until you get the full result of 100% on 12th month..

First month

After the first month of the the hair transplant surgery, the newly transplanted hair shafts fall out and that’s what called “hair shock” as the body’s normal reaction but yet the Graft follicles remains under the scalp until it adapts to its new place.

3-6 months

During this period, the follicles start producing new hair shafts, as the hair growth takes place at the beginning of the third month and may continue until the end of the sixth month from the date of the hair transplant procedure.You will start noticing relative improvement.

+6 months

After 6 months, you will see favorable difference in the growth rate of the transplanted hair as it begins to grow gradually on a monthly basis..
Some people may need 9 months, others up to 12 months, and such a rare percentage may wait till 18 months to obtain the final result of hair transplantation.

Most Common Questions About Hair Transplantation

Almost everyone is a candidate for hair transplant as long as the donor area ( the hair on the back of the head ) is strong enough to provide the needed amount of grafts ( hair follicles ) in order to cover the bald space on the head .

For example,if someone has patches on the back of te head or if someones hair on the back of the head is very weak the procedure cannot be done because if the hair is extracted from a weak donor area, it will cause more damage to it.

Anyone can undergo hair transplant as long as the donor area is strong enough.

The hair is the first thing spotted in any person, some people loses self-confidence when they start balding, so the most important benefits of hair transplant are below:

-How will you look after the operation.

-Regaining your confidence back.

Hair transplant doesnt only change how you look but it also changes how you feel about yourself.

We can extract around 4000-4500 grafts to cover them in just one session .

In this case , there is only one option. we can extract around 4000 grafts and cover about 50% in the 1st session and after 9 months minimum we can extract another 4000 grafts to cover the rest of it ( the other 50% ).

Because 9 months is the minimum period of time can be given for donor area to re-heal and revive and be ready for any further sessions.

Another impoertant question to ask is whether the extracted grafts will grow up again? The answer is no Because the extracted grafts is extracted with the tissue that causes the hair to grow up again thats why in the extraction phase grafts should be extracted in a form of pattern in every cm2 by that way the donor area is kept healthy and formed and will not be noticable that there are extracted grafts.
