The History of Hair Transp

The History of Hair Transplant

How did hair transplant start?

The first hair transplant procedure for males took place in the United States of America in 1952. A scientist published a study under the title “the dominance of the donor site” to explain the main principal for hair transplant which is based on the notion that transplanted hair behave the same the original hair. In other words hair taken from donor sites –the areas on the back and the two sides of the patient’s head- and put in the frontal areas of the patient’s head continues to grow as if it is still in its original position. Unfortunately this discovery was far from reality and the results of hair transplant procedures remained not guaranteed for years to follow.

First Years

First hair transplant procedures were conducted using 4 ml grafts, this technique continued for many years in spite the fact it did not provide satisfactory results. The demand on this procedure continued because it was the only option for people who suffer from baldness.

The Beginning of Evolution

The technique of using wide grafts continued throughout the seventies of the past century, not until 1984 that doctors started using 2-1 ml grafts. In the nineties of the twentieth century in the year 1995 a new technique was brought to the field of hair transplant which is called Follicular Unit Transplantation or FUT, this technique requires a significant increase in the skills of both the doctor and his team. Doctors reluctantly acknowledged the FUT technique at the beginning of the third millennium.

The Major Leap in the Field

In the year 2005 doctors revolutionized the field of hair transplant by discovering the Follicular unit extraction method known as FUE.

Unsuccessful Hair Transplant Procedures

Using laser in hair transplant procedures, or using laser to make the punctures in the area where grafts are going to be planted. This technique was introduced in the year 1990 as the ultimate technology in the field of hair transplant procedures, but after testing it for a small period of time it was obvious that it was causing huge damage to the skin. It was not validated to be used in the hair transplant procedures in the year 1996 due to its lack of efficiency and the huge damage it causes the scalp. Unfortunately many patients have been hurt because of this technique.

Donor Site

The Donor Site for Hair Transplant

The donor site for hair transplant is considered an extremely important condition to perform the procedure of hair transplant. Without a donor site with good density a hair transplant procedure cannot be performed. Donor sites are the areas where hair and hair roots, that are to be used in the transplant, are available.

Hair Donor Site

Hair taken from these areas continues to grow normally and permanently in its new position. These sites are never affected by the Androgen hormone.

Donor Sites in FUE and FUT Techniques

The FUT technique that has been previously used by doctors used to leave a noticeable linear scar in the donor site in a form of a horizontal line that extends between the ears. When it comes to the FUE technique there are no scars. Hair roots are extracted and removed individually one by one leaving no marks on the scalp using a micrometer with micro heads.

Shaving the Donor Site Prior to the Hair Transplant Procedure

Shaving the patient’s hair is one of the things to do prior to the hair transplant procedure, but it is also up to the patient to decide, as it is possible to only shave the areas where the roots are going to be extracted from. But most patients prefer to remove all of their hair as does the doctor so that he can extract roots in a better way.

Does Hair Grow Back in the Donor Site after the Transplant is Done?

Donor Site

During the hair transplant procedure healthy and intact roots that contain more than one hair mostly -4 hairs in a follicle are extracted; in order to achieve a higher density rate and to lessen the sacrifice of the donor site. And because these roots are fully extracted it impossible for the hair to grow back again and cover the spaces in the donor site.

Donor Site after the Transplant is Done

After harvesting the roots the donor area is sterilized and well dressed in order to prevent any infection or hemorrhage due to external factors or any other side effects. Patients are also provided with antibiotics and pain killers after the procedure in case of feeling pain or irritation in the donor site after the anesthetic effect is gone. The dressing is removed on the second day of the procedure, after that the donor area is medically cleansed to get rid of the peels and blood clots in these areas which will eventually disappear in two weeks.

Weak Donor Sites

Occasionally some donor areas don’t have enough amounts of roots and suffer from low hair density, the roots may have only one hair, or the hair might be too soft and too thin. Other cases when the patient wants to go under second hair transplant procedure and his/ her donor site has no more roots to offer, in these cases patients have to accept and cope with the reality, because if they went on and made that adventure to go under another hair transplant procedure this may backfire; some areas may be covered on the expense of other areas. It is always preferable to consult the specialized doctor to know whether the donor areas have good density prior to operation.

Hair Transplant Using Body Hair

Hair Transplants Using Body Hair

Doctors do not advise hair transplant using body hair and they have all the medical reasons to justify that. Still hair transplants using body hair is possible in the following cases:

  • When hair is so thin in the donor area and thus the donor area is not considered a donor area any more.
  • For final completions in the field of beard, mustache and eyebrows hair transplant procedures
  • To mend the scars in the scalp, usually appear after a hair transplant procedure.

The followed procedure in the field of hair transplant using body hair is extracting follicles from other body parts for the patients who suffer from weakness in their donor areas in the scalp.

In such cases body hair can be used from other body parts like chest, beard, back and legs, and consequently the more body hair density you have the more it makes you eligible for a hair transplant procedure using body hair.


The Technique Used in Hair Transplants using Body Hair

In standard hair transplant procedures hair grafts are extracted from the patient’s donor area in the back of his/her head, which usually have high hair density. In transplants using body hair doctors extract grafts from other parts of the body. Hair grafts are going to be extracted directly from the donor area under local anesthesia using a small tool that is between 0.75ml and 1ml or a little thicker. The doctor creates a circular incision inside the skin surrounding the graft and then he pulls it out directly from its position and places it in the preserving solution and finally plants it in the receiving area.

Fears Related to Hair Transplant Procedures Using Body Hair

There are some considerable differences between the hair in the scalp and body hair, patients should be aware of these differences before going under the hair transplant procedure. The most affecting factors are the containing environment for the transplanted hair, color and thickness or hair structure.

There are four major concerns for patients who are receiving hair transplants using body hair

These fears are:

  • The difference in structure between scalp hair and body hair.
  • The process of removing body hair.
  • The incompatibility between scalp hair and body hair.
  • Hair death in two or three years after the procedure.

The disadvantage of this kind of procedures is usually that body hair has a lower quality than the hair in the scalp; this is due to the fact that the structure of hair in the scalp is more coherent than the hair around the body. In order to have a successful result after a hair transplant using body hair you need to plant more hair than you really need.

The degree of compatibility is so important as well in order to have the best possible result. You have also to remember that the success rates of hair transplants using body hair are less than those of the procedures that use donor areas from the scalp. The main cause for this is that body hair is not as restricted as the scalp hair. For example we took 2000 grafts from the body it is possible to get only 1000 healthy grafts. Normally in hair transplant procedures where the donor are is the interior area of the patient’s head we get 2000 out of 2000, that is why doctors recommend procedures where hair is extracted from the donor area in the scalp.

What are the benefits of transplant procedures using body hair?

It provides good density to cover a considerable space of the bold area.

Hair transplant Using Body Hair

Side Effects

The main source of concern for many patients who want to go under the hair transplant procedure using body hair is whether they are going to have obvious scars in the body donor area after the procedure. In fact there are going to be some stitches and scars in the donor area but these will heal within weeks. Here you can read about the other side effects to this procedure.

The difference in Structure Between body hair and Scalp Hair


Doctors do not recommend hair transplant procedures using body hair as long as there isn’t an urgent for it. Doctors’ priority is trying to get grafts from the donor area in the head which is usually located on the back and on the two sides of the head.

Hair Growth After The Procedure

When does Hair Start Growing after the Hair Transplant Procedure?

The Growth of the Transplanted Hair

After the first couple days after the procedure patients start to wonder about when their new hair is going to grow. Patients usually panic when they don’t see any growth of the transplanted hair in the first three after the procedure and start thinking that the procedure was a complete failure. You do not need to worry; it is natural for these things to happen. Even the transplanted hair starts falling off in this stage.

Factors that Affect Hair Growth after a Hair Transplant Procedure

planted follicles have different growth rates due to many factors most importantly the method used in the procedure and the place these follicles are planted, for example follicles in the frontal head area grow faster than those in the interior area of the head because this area includes a limited number of arteries and blood vessels that are responsible for nourishing the hair therefore hair follicles in this area do not receive enough nourishment and consequently its growth rates are slower than the remaining areas.

Hair Growth After the Procedure

Hair Growth After the Procedure

Hair Transplant procedure-Hair Growth Rates

The following results have been extracted from studies and statistics conducted on many patients who went under the hair the transplant procedure.

  • 1% of patients start growing hair immediately after the procedure.
  • 5% of patients do not start growing hair until the 8th month after the procedure.
  • 94% of patients start growing hair gradually after the hair falls off. In the first three months hair grows gradually of about 30% of its texture. In the fourth month 40% of its texture so on so forth until the hair rates are achieved at the end of the first year after the procedure.

In conclusion patients should not hasten result, because true and final results will show up with time.

  • How To Sleep After Hair Transplant

The way you sleep after hair transplant may influence the final result of the overall procedure. It is essential that you keep your head at a 45° angle for the first 5-7 nights. Opt for the neck-pillow as sleeping flat may cause swelling and damage the newly-transplanted hair. Further on, you can choose a more comfortable sleeping position.

  • How To Prevent Swelling After Hair Transplant

Prevention of swelling after hair transplant includes several methods. Keeping your head elevated while sleeping and relaxing is the number one factor that helps to minimize swelling. Your surgeon may advise effective medicines and suggest putting ice on the swollen areas.

  • Medicines To Be Taken After Hair Transplant

Medicines to be taken after the hair transplant may vary. Still, we can define commonly prescribed drugs. The list includes antibiotics in the form of pills or cream, painkillers to use in the first days after the surgery, and medications for hair follicles maintenance and hair growth: Minoxidil or Finasteride.

  • How Many Days Does Swelling Last After Hair Transplant

Swelling after hair transplant depends on many factors. It is generally observed 2 or 3 days after the procedure and is considered to be a normal post-surgery occurrence. The use of medications and cold compresses as well as following the recommended sleeping techniques can help to reduce the discomfort and the swelling itself.

  • What To Eat After Hair Transplant

After the hair transplant, you need to keep a healthy diet that includes vegetables, natural oils, and nuts. Make sure you get enough vitamin B, magnesium and calcium. Your diet should not lack nutritional value. Avoid fast food and alcohol. Mind that smoking influences hair growth negatively.

  • How To Cover Head After Hair Transplant

After the surgery, you will have bondage on your head. It is not recommended to cover the newly-transplanted hair or to use any kind of headwear for several days to avoid the risk of follicle damage and infection. You can start covering your head 7 days after the surgery in case your doctor does not say otherwise.

  • How To Reduce Swelling After Hair Transplant

To reduce swelling after the hair transplant, you should ensure the right sleeping position: lie on your back, arrange multiple pillows so that your head would be at a 45-degree angle, and use the neck-pillow so that your head does not press against any surface. Additionally, you can take medications against edema and use cold compress or ice-pack.

  • Is Smoking After Hair Transplant Safe?

Smoking is not quite safe after hair transplant. It may seriously affect blood circulation which can cause insufficient hair nutrition. As the post-surgery period is very important, you should eliminate any negative influence on the organism to shorten the recovery period and to achieve better results.

  • Is Sauna After Hair Transplant Safe

Sauna after hair transplant surgery is not safe and prohibited by specialists. The newly-transplanted hair follicles remain fragile within several days after the operation. High temperature and sweat may cause damage to the new hairs and lead to bacterial infections. That is why it is recommended to keep away from the sauna within at least three weeks after the procedure.

  • When Can I Sleep Normally After Hair Transplant

You can sleep normally after about two weeks from the day of surgery. The recovery period depends on individual peculiarities and general health conditions of patients. However, you should take special care throughout the most fragile period. As soon as the swelling has gone and you no longer feel the discomfort or pain all around the transplantation area, you can start sleeping in any desired position.

  • Is Drinking Coffee After Hair Transplant Safe

Drinking coffee after the hair transplant is not safe. It can raise blood pressure and thus cause bleeding which sufficiently slows down the recovery. Although in small amounts coffee is not likely to do any harm, excessive caffeine consumption may lead to negative results. Strive to eat and drink healthy throughout the recovery period.

  • When To Start Workout After Hair Transplant

You can start workouts after 2 weeks from the hair transplantation. Any actions and procedures that may cause sweating should be eliminated or fully avoided. Sweat may irritate the sensitive operated area and cause bleeding and infections. You may proceed with your regular exercises as soon as you see that the recovery is almost complete.

  • What Are Hair Transplant Aftercare Products

Hair transplant aftercare products may include antibiotics that are prescribed to eliminate the risk of post-surgical bacterial infections, and painkillers to soothe the pain in the first days after the operation. You can use your regular shampoo and medical products like Minoxidil or Finasteride for hair nutrition and growth in case your doctor recommends them.

  • How Much Time Does Recovery After FUE Hair Transplant Take

The recovery after FUE hair transplantation lasts about 1-2 weeks according to various aspects that influence it. In case you follow your doctor’s recommendations, carry out the required procedures, take prescribed medicines, and sleep “correctly”, the recovery time may be significantly reduced. On average, patients turn back to the office a week after the operation.

  • Can I Drink Alcohol After Hair Transplant

You cannot drink alcohol after the hair transplant. Moreover, it is generally recommended to stop consuming it a few days before the scheduled surgery. Alcohol causes blood thinning that may lead to post-operational bleeding. It makes sense to keep away from alcohol starting from a week before the operation and throughout the recovery period. For best results opt for healthy food and drinks.

  • How Long Does Scalp Pain Last After Hair Transplant

Scalp pain normally lasts for about a couple of days. Then, you may still feel the discomfort that will cease within two more days. While you will still observe some post-surgical marks over the transplantation area, you are most likely to feel no more pain after about four days in total. Otherwise, you need to contact your doctor to exclude the risk of infection.

  • How Much Time Does The Recovery Of The Hair Transplant Donor Area Take

The recovery of the hair transplant donor area takes approximately 2 weeks. After the surgery, you will have bondage over the donor area. When it is removed, small dots will be observed on the shaved skin. The healing process will not take too long: as the hair grows, all post-operational marks will disappear and the esthetics will be regained.

  • When Can I Sleep On My Back After Hair Transplant

After hair transplantation, you can start sleeping on your back not less than one week after the surgery. However, the riskiest period lasts for about two weeks. During this time you should avoid any pressure on the head. That is why we would recommend you to be patient and to avoid sleeping on your back within two weeks after the operation.




The Importance of the Solution that Preserves the Roots

The liquid or solution that preserves the roots during the hair transplant procedure has a great effect on the final outcome of the procedure. There are many opinions regarding the most suitable solution to preserve the harvested grafts, which are used as temporary storage units during the hair transplant procedure. Many surgeons have been using the same protocol during the hair transplant procedure, which delivered successful results most of the time, nevertheless there has been always this urge to achieve better and guaranteed results.

What Kind of Effects do Hair Roots Containers Have on the Final Outcome of the Hair Transplant Procedure?

A recently published article by the international association of hair transplant, discusses the controversy related to the best solution that keeps hair roots healthy and the role it plays in sustaining these roots after being removed from the scalp.

Generally any kind of solution should provide the highest level of protection and the lowest levels of pressure on hair follicles during the period hair roots remain outside of the scalp. Lowering the pressure increases the possibility of sustaining hair roots and improves roots’ growth after being planted.

What are the Best Solutions Used to Maintain and Improve Roots Quality?

Most solutions used in the containers that preserve hair roots are made of modified salt water, such as saline, and it is originally designed to support cells in the normal body temperature. Hair roots are usually stored in low temperatures between 2-8 C° in order to decrease metabolism and any other damages that may be inflected on roots out of their natural environment.


Unfortunately these conditions weakens the root protection and slows the ITP Adenosine triphosphate movement, which has the duty of maintaining its vital balance, this may lead to:

  • Changes in the cellular membrane
  • Instability of the composition inside the cells
  • Creating alien atoms
  • Abnormal water flow inside the membrane

Eventually this may lead to the death of the cells or to necrosis. All these factors may aggravate when using a solution like the saline that contains hair roots in an alien environment. On the other hand placing hair roots in an active and a supportive environment with an equivalent temperature to that of the human body; metabolism rates are going to be normal and the ionic ITP moves freely. Saline solution of equalized tension speeds up the process of ascites, decomposition, and death of the cells under the circumstances hair roots undergo in that low temperature.

Hypothermosol strengthens and sustains hair roots and maintain them healthy and intact during the time hair roots remain outside of their natural environment

In order to support cells in the external circumstances and low temperature, and in order to gain maximum use of the recession period that hyperthermia provides, the need for a solution that sustains hair roots in a healthy environment and maintains cells balance in an environment similar to the original one containing the cells. Low temperature is the ideal environment to sustain these tissue samples during storage period, and this is exactly what Hypothermosol solution does. This solution manages the pressure caused by low temperatures, and keeps balanced ions and particles with the same pH levels, it also decreases death of cells and increases possibilities of faster healing processes after transplanting roots in the new position in the scalp.


In the following pictures you can see samples of cells stored in different equalized solutions put under a florescent microscope, these pictures show the exact periods hair roots cells stayed out of its natural environment.

Hair Roots Preserved in Different Solutions

Hair Roots in Different Preserving Solutions

The florescent microscope shows how the low temperature solutions that sustain hair roots maintain the cells alive, and shows how it is different from other solutions like serum or saline.

Reinforcing the health of hair follicles is necessary to guarantee the quality and success of the procedure, in addition to hair density and taking into account scalp irritations, the rates of hair growth and the thickness of the hair. These factors are very necessary to consider in order achieving the ultimate use of the sustaining solutions, it is also an effective way to make hair roots healthier.

Beard Hair Transplants

The Negative Down- Sides of Beard Hair Transplant Procedures

Beards have major effects on character and personal identity. Beard hair transplant procedures come as a final solution to the problems of lack of growth in the beard area for some reasons like wounds and burns, or due to the lack of hair production in some parts. Beard hair transplant procedure is the same as the traditional hair transplant. It also depends on the method of harvesting grafts from areas that are never affected by the fall of hair from the scalp and planting it the areas where hair density is low and need to be increased.

The Result of Beard Hair Transplant

This procedure is usually done successfully, but in some cases there are a few things to consider when going under this procedure, the result may not be as the patient expected, as this is not only harvesting and planting.

Beard Hair Transplant

Beard Hair Transplant

Root structure: the hair planted into the beard has a different quality from the hair that already exists in the patient’s beard. In general, hair produced in the scalp differs from other bodily hair. Bodily hair root contains only one hair. On the other hand, a healthy and grow-able hair root taken from the scalp contains two or more hairs. So, when a root taken from the scalp is planted in the face of the patient, it has hard for it to grow in the natural direction of hair growth. The person performing the procedure should be able to determine the most suitable roots to be plucked from the donor area in the scalp.

Hair thickness: Hair taken from the scalp has different thickness from hair taken from the beard; hair taken from the scalp is thinner compared to hair taken from the beard. Beards are usually thicker which makes the transplanted hair more vulnerable and more apt to breakage and split.


Beard hair density will not be the same as the scalp; which makes difficult to control hair growth direction after the transplant.

Growth levels for both kind of hair will not be compatible. The hair taken from the scalp may grow faster than the one from the beard which will have an effect on the patient’s appearance and consequently leaving him uncomfortable with the outcome.

Facial hair transplant may leave scars around the planted hair and may remain visible when the beard is shaved. Those scars are usually annoying and may bleed when the beard is shaved because t is not leveled with other parts of the skin.

These factors and side effects may appear when the hair transplant procedure is performed by an unqualified person like a nurse or any other inexperienced person.

Hair Trasnplant Turkey

Hair Transplant in Turkey : Step by Step

Dr. Yetkin Bayer gives 8 advices for Hair transplant in Turkey:

Hair fall and baldness; a lot of us suffer from these two problems that develop and develop gradually. At first, it starts with hair falling, and it ends with baldness and leaves the person with a bright clean head.
Lately, there were a lot of anti- baldness medicines and medical drugs, but all of them are temporary solutions and their effect ends after you end using them.

The best solution for baldness is hair transplant. It gives the patient permanent and satisfactory results.
Here are some advices that are given to you by Dr. Yetkin Bayer as well as some information and precautions you should take and the most important things you should be aware of about hair transplant Turkey:
The first advice is:

How do I choose the right doctor to perform the operation of hair transplant in Turkey?

If you have decided to go under a hair transplant operation in Turkey, you should make sure that the person who is giving you the information is the same doctor who will perform the operation to you.
A lot of hair transplant operations in Turkey and especially in Istanbul are performed by persons who have not got correct education, and they do not have any certificate which enables them from practicing that job. They practice it secretly. Although they have a lot of advertisements; they cannot prove themselves if they were asked to give any tangible evidence. The minorities are real doctors and they are conferred by the ministry of health to do their job in honest ways; on the other hand, the rest are nurses who lack the skill, the experience and the practical knowledge which they need.

Ask about your doctor carefully before choosing him.

Make sure that the doctor has the enough knowledge and experience to perform the operation and has a good skill in his job.
Ask about the techniques and the methods which the doctor is going to use during the operation.
Get in touch with other patients of the same doctor and ask them about their operations. Ask about the negative and positive points they faced during the operation, and of course you will ask about the results of their operations.
Always remember that the skill of the doctor and his long experience are the things that will decide the result of the operation.

The second advice is:

How can I make sure about the doctor who will perform the operation of hair transplant in Turkey, and what is the way that protects me from any false doctor?

Before you make your decision about the doctor who will do the operation to you, you should ask him to show you real forms or samples instead of created pictures. Although there are a lot of centers that have very successful methods of advertising, you will find that there are a lot of hair transplant teams that do not have enough number of patients as a reference to their work. Do not go under the operation until you make sure that the doctor who will perform it realizes the importance of every single hair and considers this his principle. During making the deal about hair transplant in Turkey, you should know clearly who will perform the hair transplant. Is he the nursing assistant, the trainee, the person who has not got any education and claims to be an expert at hair transplant, or is he the doctor who will do the operation himself and supervise it from beginning to end; from anesthesia to harvesting the graft to opening the canal to planting it?

Do not forget that all of the eulogy, exaggerations, decorations, and pictures that you see and hear in the virtual environment are not reliable enough, so get closer from it carefully.

Ask your doctor to show you his certificates and all the papers which prove that he is a real doctor and that he is authorized by the ministry of health to do his job. Ask the doctor to give you certificates which prove that he has done a lot of researches to make sure that he has the enough knowledge and the perfect experience.

Money comes and goes, but the hair you lose will never come back. That’s why if you have the chance to get it back, do not lose it because of getting low prices. Unfortunately, in many cases, the person who performs the operation is not a doctor, so you have to make sure who is going to perform the operation to you is a real doctor and that he has the enough experience and skill to do such operations.

The third advice is:

Will the results of the operation be better if the number of grafts was bigger?

Of course, the bigger the number of grafts is, the better the results are.
That also depends on:
The density of hair in the giving area.
The kind of the graft and the number of hair in it. Some grafts have different numbers of hair in them (from 1 to 4 hair in the same graft).
The experience and the skill of the doctor who will do the operation and that he should know which grafts he should eradicate and which ones he should keep.
The doctor should take into account the distance among the eradicated grafts and the remaining ones.
The distribution of the eradicated grafts in a skilled and professional manner in the receiving area and transplanting them in an organized way.
Non-condensing in the receiving area at the expense of the giving area.
A professional doctor is the one who gives you a natural result without any effects that show that you have gone under an operation. He takes into account the most important point in hair transplant by which you can get the perfect result and the wanted natural appearance which is the way of transplanting the graft into the scalp in a way that allows the hair to grow in the natural direction like the rest of hair.

In order to get a natural hair density:
The natural hair density for a person is 60 – 120 group of grafts per each square centimeter. As a result of that we find that the density of hair plays an important role in hair transplant.
Hair density that we get from hair transplant is important to get the natural appearance.
The condensation process includes transplanting bulbous units in certain density in a certain receiving area.
The surgeon takes the hair from the giving area and transplants it in a studied manner as possible and he does his best to get a natural result.
How can you make sure about the number of grafts transplanted to you?
Usually hair transplant centers in Turkey promise patients to transplant a big number of grafts. They say they can transplant 8000 grafts.
The most possible amount of grafts that can be removed without any bad effects on the giving area is 4500 (100 more or less). It may reach 5000 grafts, and this is very rare.

If the surgeon told you that he can transplant a certain amount – let’s say 5000 grafts- he already knows that you cannot count them after the operation and he knows that nobody can count them for you.
Is there a possible way of counting the grafts?
Yes, there is. You can count them simply.
After the surgeon ends the stage of eradication and before the anesthesia of the receiving area, it is so possible to know the number of eradicated grafts. You can know the exact number of the eradicated grafts. All what you have to do is to ask the doctor to count them and this is your right.
In the operation room, you will find these petri dishes on a table and you will find these white fabric pieces inside it.

All what you have to do is to count the grafts on the fabric piece in one petri dish. This is not complicated or difficult at all. It is very simple. You count a horizontal line and a vertical one. Then you multiply them, and you get the result.
As you can see in the picture:
Vertical = 12 \ horizontal = 25
The result is 12 x 25 = 300
After that you multiply the number of grafts in one petri with the number of petries on the table. Let us suppose that they are 10 petries.
300 x 10 = 3000.

The forth advice is:

Who will perform the operation of hair transplant in Turkey?

The only person who is authorized to perform the operation is a specialist doctor in beautification and hair transplant.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of hair transplant centers in Turkey and especially in Istanbul that lack these points:
University certificates:
A document or an official statement issued by the government and the ministry of health that enables the surgeon to do his job.
Enough experience.
Scientific and practical knowledge.
The majority of people become victims to those centers, and they are exposed to this cheating with its bad effects. That will make the patient regretful and sorry for going under this operation.
Therefore, please be careful to these points, and always ask about the doctor who will perform the operation and get closer to it carefully. During making the deal about hair transplant in Turkey, you should know clearly who will perform the hair transplant. Is he the nursing assistant, the trainee, the person who has not got any education and claims to be an expert at hair transplant, or is he the doctor who will do the operation himself and supervise it from beginning to end; from anesthesia to harvesting the graft to opening the canal to planting it?

The fifth advice is:

What is the 100% guarantee of hair transplant ?

In reality and especially in the medical domain there is nothing called 100% guarantee because human body always has natural and physiological changes. Sometimes outside factors and compelling circumstances affect the human body. That is why there is no doctor who can give you the 100% guarantee. The patient should be careful and should follow the instructions and advices given to him by the doctor. This enables him to get the best results.

The sixth advice is:

How can you make sure about the pictures before and after the operation?

In Turkey, it is forbidden to publish pictures for patients before and after the operations for propaganda purposes. Do not be cheated by the scammers who give you guarantee documents about hair transplant in Turkey because it is illegal. It is only a game to deceive you. These websites and companies are illegal and it is used only for commercial purposes. Unfortunately, many centers try to cover the defects of operations by editing pictures using Photoshop. In addition to that computer programs that view the possible pictures of patients after the operation are only exhibition and their purpose is commercial. Do not be deceived by cheaters who publish on their websites pictures before and after the operation. These pictures are unreal and consequently they are not reliable and they do not reflect your appearance after the operation. By this kind of pictures you will be disappointed.

The seventh advice is:

Why do we consider the care after hair transplant very important?

Hair transplant operation does not end after transplanting the last hair.
The doctor should take care of his patient from the first day of the operation until 8 months after it at least.
Doctor should give intense care to his patient especially the first two weeks since performing the operation of hair transplant in Turkey.
A good doctor does not leave his patient after ending the operation. The grafts would be new and the scalp needs time to heal; therefore the doctor should stay in contact with the patient and should give him all the necessary instructions to avoid any possible problem that may appear in the future.

The doctor should keep a constant communication with the patient (at least three times a month), and should ask about the natural growth of his hair and he should also ask about the state of the patient and the works he is doing.
Giving the patient the needed advices and instructions at any time and place.

The eighth advice is:

What about the cost of hair transplant in Turkey?

The cost of hair transplant in turkey differs according to:
The age of the person.
The uncovered area.
The adequacy of the giving area and other variables.
Please, if you do not have enough money, postpone hair transplant in Turkey because fixing the mistakes of cheap operations may cost much more money.
Every hair should be valuable to you. The graft of one hair that you lose will not come back again, and that will be a big loss that you will face. Do not lose the hair you own while transplanting hair in Turkey.

  • Blood Tests During Hair Transplant Procedures in Turkey

    Extracting Blood Samples for the Necessary Tests

At the day of the procedure, a blood sample is collected from the patient in order to run some tests before going under the procedure. Then the patient’s hair is shaved at the length of 0.9 ml, the scalp then is washed and cleansed. The patient puts on hi/her scrubs. The doctor draws the line of hair transplant and marks the donor area. All is set for the next step of the procedure.


Anesthesia and Harvesting:

After walking into the operation room, first of all a local anesthesia is applied to the scalp so that the patient does not feel any pain. The only pain the patient is going to experience is the instant the needle goes into the scalp, after that all wait for a little amount of time in order for the anesthetic to kick in. The process of anesthesia then continues to include the donor area where the roots are going to be removed. The process of harvesting grafts, from the donor site, starts by using a device dedicated to the removal of roots called the Micrometers FUI. This device is equipped with different micro heads and different sizes, these heads are chosen according to the nature of the roots. Its measurements are from 0.4 to 0.8 ml.

Anesthesia During Hair Transplant in Turkey


Intact and healthy grafts are chosen that carry from 2 to 4 hairs each to guarantee density in the future. These roots then are reserved in glass containers containing Hypothermosol solution, which nourishes the roots and maintain a temperature similar to the vital atmosphere of the scalp. This solution is quite different from serums and the saline substance.

  • :Sorting and Dressing

Hair roots are then sorted and classified, at this point harvesting grafts starts in with complete precision with taking under consideration the distance between roots and harvesting follicles should happen on an equal base so that no over harvesting happens from one area and leaving another area intact thus leaving the donor site looking unacceptable or unnatural. Harvesting happens moderately from all sides of the donor area until the required quantity of roots is obtained to be planted in the receiving site. After that the donor site is well dressed and bandaged, the procedure carries on into the next phase.

Opening Hair Root Encapsulating Channels:

This step is considered the most important in the procedure of hair transplant and the entire outcome and natural results that are aspired for, of the procedure counts on it. These results are the results that any patient going under the procedure of hair transplant in Turkey aspires for.


At this point Dr. Yetkin Bayer applies the OSL technique which is the channel oblique technique. This novel technique was invented by Doctor Yetkin Bayer himself, and has proved its success and has delivered natural results. These results have distinguished Doctor Yetkin Bayer’s procedures from all other procedures in Turkey. This technique depends on first and foremost on the practical and scientific knowledge of the doctor as well as his expertise and skill. Dr. Bayer takes under consideration the anatomy of the scalp tissues and the knowledge of skin layers as well as the calculations of the length, diameter, circumference, and the depth of the channel so that it is adequate to the root during the phase of transplant and prevents the chances of having the root fall off during the healing process. The consideration of the direction and the degree of obliqueness of the channel is an important thing at this point to protect the patient from the grass-man phenomena in the future.

Studying the tissues and the scalp skin layers and taking under consideration the distance between transplanted roots, along with the healthy roots that are still in the scalp protects the patient from any side effects and negative results that may cause permanent irrefutable damages. Usually these points are not taken under consideration when performing a hair transplant procedure performed by unqualified people. Doctors on the other hand are well informed regarding every detail and matters that seem marginal and not important but has a major effect on the hair transplant procedure and its outcome.

After the phase of opening the channels is over, a break time is due where the patient has a necessary meal and then back to proceed.

8 facts to expect after a hair transplant

There are 8 facts after a hair transplant procedure all patients have to expect .

Male Hair Loss and Baldness

Hair loss and baldness do not happen to all men and certainly those who suffer from it have it in different degrees. Hair line might start retreating to the crown area, or may begin at the crown area and expand in the diameter, or it even may disappear totally to leave you with a shiny clean shaved head. For some men, baldness is inevitable just like growing old. In order to avoid this problem many men resort to search for all possible solutions to restore their hair and to get rid of the problem of baldness, which is best solved by hair transplantation.
Here we provide you with 8 facts to expect after hair transplant procedures:
The cost of hair transplant procedures does not depend on the number of transplanted roots:
The cost of a hair transplant procedure is never calculated according to the number of extracted or transplanted roots, it depends on the amount of effort spent in the operation room. When the patient visits the clinic for an advisory session the surgeon will determine the amount of work needed. This is the reason why there is no final cost for this procedure.
There are many probable side effects to hair transplant procedures
Hair transplant procedures may have some side effects because the areas that went under the procedure are considered weaker than they used to be, increasing the possibility of infections and some delay in the healing process. But these side effects are avoidable by selecting the right doctor to perform the procedure and getting enough rest and medical care after the procedure.

8 facts after a hair transplant

Transplanted hair falls off after the procedures:
This surgical procedure in the scalp gives chance to new hairs to grow, these new hairs start growing in the second month after the procedure. There are some cases where transplanted hair does not fall off at all, in the contrary it continues to grow.

Healing and growing hair differ from one person to another
Although doctors determine the time for hair to grow, wound to heal and clots to disappear after the procedure, this does not necessarily mean that this period is a rule and should apply to everyone. Each patient needs a different period of time to grow hair as we said earlier this is determined by the biological nature for each patient and space of the receiving site. The number of transplanted roots also has an effect on the entire healing process.

The final results of the procedure do not show up until one year or more after the procedure.
The final result for a hair transplant procedure seems more obvious after one year or one year and a half after the procedure; by that time hair would have grown by more than one inch and then you can cut your transplanted hair for the first time. Then you can see better coverage. For the best and the guaranteed results the procedure should be performed by a specialized doctor with complete practical and scientific experience.

The permanent results of the hair transplant procedure:
hair transplantation provide permanent results; this is why patients who suffer from baldness go under the hair transplant procedure in spite of its relatively high cost. The results are permanent and natural at the same time.

Some patients may need to continue some treatments even after the procedure.
Patients who suffer from hair loss may be advised to carry on using the treatments and supplements they used to have before the procedure in order to maintain the natural hair in that area.

Patients may require another hair transplantation or another session
According to the doctor’s assessment a patient may need another session of hair transplantation in the future. There are some cases when the doctor waits to see the final results of the first procedure to determine whether the patient needs another session or not. The second transplantation is set after at least a year and for others it may take years to set a second session, some rare cases need more time to have full coverage. Second sessions are not due to mistakes or errors in the previous transplantation; it is merely an extra step in the case when patients desire a complete hair restoration.
