Hairless areas are evaluated as square centimeters. The number of grafts is determined by assuming that between 60-80 roots will be placed in the hair with thicker hair diameter of 45-50 root hair in thin hair..
The donor area of the individual is evaluated on the basis of square centimeters and it is predicted how much graft can be taken. The balding areas are also evaluated and if the number of grafts in need meets each other, the operation is planned or the patient is agreed to be performed in 2 sessions..
In the donor area, the hair follicle extends horizontally downwards and the hair follicle closes the areas taken. No scars are seen in patients with good hair density in the donor area, no scars are visible unless the hair density in the donor area is low and the patients with light colored hair hold longer than 0.5 cm.

The life cycle of our hair consists of three phases: anagen, catagen and telogen. These 3 stages are repeated throughout our lifetime. Hair transplanted after hair transplantation enters the catagen stage. After 15-20 days, the transplanted hair is shed and the telogen phase begins. This phase is the resting and regeneration phase of the root lasts 2-4 months and it can take 1 to 1.5 years for the hairs to grow, thicken and take the form of hair..
Diabetes disrupts blood circulation and therefore reduces blood flow to the capillaries. Therefore, wound healing process is difficult in diabetic patients.

Itching may occur in the postoperative areas. It is an indicator of the healing process and when itching is intense, using lotion and washing will relieve the skin, reducing itching. Fatty skin is a condition that our tissues need.

Light oily skin is a desired condition, but it is harmful for hair to remain in the skin and accumulate and cause the skin pores to close. Acne is a phenomenon caused by the body when hair is forced to pierce the skin, depending on the lubrication of the skin. Acne is not harmful to hair, but infection development can cause negative effects, so you need to follow the patient and start medication if needed.
