What are hair grafts?
A hair graft is a tissue found inside the head or any part of the body. It is not just tissue (hair), it is a mixture of nerve and venous connection that nourishes it, to be transported to another part of the body.
This is the name given to the graft in hair transplantation, which is taken from the scalp throughout its depth, 2-4 hairs inside each follicle. In other words, grafts and hair are different from each other, and grafts and hair follicles are different in the hair transplantation process.
It also comes to mind the complexity of the concept of hair transplantation. At some point you do not notice it, your surgeon or hair transplant center will tell you that you will need 3000 grafts.
Your surgeon or any other hair transplant center can tell you that you need 9,000 hairs. The two numbers in the example are the same. Since each follicle contains 2-4 hairs, at the rate of 3 hairs inside each follicle. In other words, three thousand grafts equal nine thousand hairs.
The highest density in hair transplantation
For hair transplantation in the area that has been exposed to hair loss, and after extracting the grafts, the grafts are separated using a very precise tool according to the donor area. Three to increase hair density and increase hair follicles. Hair grafts required for hair transplantation are extracted by various methods such as FUE, FUT, and a set of hair banks.
Hypo Thermosol Graft: The proper clinical preservation of the hair follicle tissue is a crucial factor in a successful hair transplant. A hair transplant often takes an average of 6 to 8 hours, leaving the extracted follicles outside the body for a long duration of time. The follicles are very sensitive without proper blood supply.
Since 2013, Hypo thermos FRS has been used as a storage solution, instead of the normal saline solution used to store hair grafts during a hair transplant.
With the new refrigerant storage medium designed to maintain the vitality of the extracted grafts by providing maximum storage temperatures at 2-8 ° C, the sensitivity of the molecular cells is reduced.
By providing an appropriate pH, supporting osmosis, energy substrates, and ionic concentrations to balance cells at low temperatures, this method is a lot more effective than others in promoting cell survival.
Hypo thermos Graft Method
This method has been used to preserve cells, tissues, and organs (such as the heart and kidney) in abnormal conditions (transferred from one body to another) and has been widely used in maintaining hair follicles in hair transplantation.
Damage to grafts leads to cell death, especially when saline solutions are used as a storage solution, so hypo thermos has been used as a more effective solution to keep grafts alive as long as possible.
While there are many studies and views on the mechanism of maintaining grafts extracted outside the body, experts and surgeons have adopted different ways to store grafts.
For years, the experts have been carrying out important studies in this field and we have concluded that the ideal methods to store grafts are by using Hypo Thermosol.
