1.Hair Transplantation Donor Area Qualification
What is a Hair Transplant Donor Area?
The donor area is the back part of the hair where the hair is strongest, the area on the top of the neck, between the two ears. Although the beard and other parts of the body are used as donor areas in some clinics, the most successful results have been observed in patients where the hair was taken from the hair follicles located in the back area.
How to Determine the Donor Area?
The donor area is the area where the hair strands are strongest and are the most difficult to shed. The side and back areas of the hair are not affected by the DHT hormone that damages the hair. These areas are determined before hair transplantation in a way that does not disrupt the natural appearance.
How Many Grafts Are Taken from the Donor Area?
The number of grafts to be taken from the donor area depends on the patient's open area and the adequacy of the donor area. If there is a lot of openness in the area where hair transplantation will be performed, it is planned to take maximum grafts without disturbing the natural appearance. While an exact number can be given by one-on-one examination, only an estimated number can be given to patients based on clear photographs. The quality of hair in the donor area is important for this.
What Situations Does Incorrect Determination of the Number of Grafts to be Received Lead to?
Depending on the open area, the number of grafts is generally tried to be maximized. If too little or too much is taken, a situation may arise that will spoil the natural appearance. For this reason, planning should be done correctly and experienced hair transplantation specialists should be preferred.

If the transplantation area is large and the donor area is insufficient, the result of a hair transplantation operation may not be as frequent as desired.
Can the Entire Hairless Area Be Covered with Grafts Taken from the Donor Area?
This is information that varies from person to person but can only be obtained after hair analysis. If the hair quality of the donor area is sufficient, the entire balding area can be covered in a single session. The important thing at this point is not to spoil the natural appearance and to create a natural appearance in the transplanted area. If the donor area is of high quality up to 7000 grafts, hair transplantation is performed in a single session, but a second session hair transplantation can be planned to prevent damage to the donor area.
