What is a Graft?

The word graft, which is often heard by the people who want to have hair transplantation, is used not only in the field of hair transplantation but also in dentistry and other medical fields. Generally, grafts are tissues taken from any part of the body without any nerve and vascular connections. Skin and skin grafts are used to treat burns and wounds, while hair root grafts are used for hair transplantation.


Grafting in Hair Transplant

Grafts are pieces of tissue taken from the donor area during hair transplantation and added to the area where hair loss occurs. There is some skin and hair roots in the graft. The types of grafts vary depending on the amount of skin it contains and the number of hair follicles.

For hair transplantation, grafts are taken from the person. Hair transplantation is not possible with other grafts. Grafts are usually taken from the back of the person’s head. Because the hair follicles here are coded not to fall out. Different numbers of hair follicles may be present in the grafts taken from the area between the two ears behind the head. Hair follicles are usually located in grafts in pairs, triples or quads. The tips used for the removal of grafts are 1 / 1.2 mm wide. If too many grafts are removed with this technique, there may be a risk of scarring.


The number of hair follicles to be transplanted is an important point determined before the operation. In hair transplantation graft calculation is performed before the procedure. The number of grafts does not mean the number of hair follicles. Therefore, it is not important how many grafts to be transplanted in the hair transplant operation, but how many hair follicles are present in the grafts to be transplanted. How much hair will grow in the hair transplanted area is not determined by the number of grafts transplanted but by the number of hair follicles in the grafts.

The grafts in the donor region are collected by different methods. There are triple and quadruple hair roots in the grafts in hair transplantation with Fut method. In this method, the process is done by removing larger and larger pieces of leather. The skin remains scarred because the grafts contain too much skin. In hair transplantation with Fue technique, the hair follicles in the grafts are usually triple and quadruple. In this method, smaller grafts are collected. The small size of the grafts allows the wounds to heal faster. You can contact us if you want to have information about hair transplantation graft prices.


Storage of Grafts

The grafts are collected individually from the donor site at the first stage of hair transplantation. They are waited until the second stage of the procedure, the placement of the grafts. It is important that the grafts from the donor area remain viable and healthy until transplantation. Therefore, the grafts are kept in a special solution after being removed from the donor area. Non-specialists in hair transplantation do not take care to protect the collected grafts. They damage the grafts during the collection and retention of the grafts. Correct collection of grafts is important for healthy hair follicles. Grafts that are held in unfavorable conditions suffer significant losses and decrease in process efficiency. Therefore, graft preservation is very important in hair transplantation.
