Hair Transplant is very important cure of baldness. People do hair transplant everyday but people don’t know about some important factors of hair transplant. Minimizing greft damage and maximizing the productivity of hair transplant are very important factors. In Turkey there is a lot of clinics are ignoring these standards and this occur very bad results. If you think fue hair transplant please read our article. This article tells you important factors in hair transplant. Also this article help you “How to find best hair transplant doctor or clinic?”

The Golden Hand Standards are a quality standard practiced by Dr. Gokhan Gur to minimize the possibility of graft damage during hair transplant procedures.

These standards also ensure that the donor area does not have any scarring and it stays healthy and robust for possible future hair implant procedures if needed by patients.

Furthermore, the standards enable a homogeneous and meticulous extraction from the donor area which results in a natural look in the donor area.

In our article you see FUE grafts styles and transaction rate of grafts sections. If you have any questions please contact us.

FUE Grafts

Intact graft: This term refers to the entire structure of healthy terminal hair follicles, including intact structures of infundibulum, isthmus and bulbar structures, that have not suffered any trauma during the process of extraction.

The 4 grafts on the right side are “INTACT” a.k.a. undamaged grafts.

Partially transected graft: This term refers to a graft that contains one or more follicles that have been transversely cut but still contains intact follicles.

The 2 grafts in the centre are “PARTIALLY TRANSECTED” a.k.a partially damaged grafts.

Completely transected graft: This term refers to the amputation of all the follicles within a graft that there are no intact follicles in the extracted tissue.

And the ones on the left side are “COMPLETELY TRANSECTED” a.k.a completely damaged grafts. From these two grafts, the one on the left side has also got the matrix part -surrounding the follicular unit- damaged. And the one on the right side could be considered as “INTACT” by an inexperienced eye. However, the matrix of the graft might have been separated from the follicul. This type of “intact-looking-but-once-implanted-will-not-grow” grafts can only be assessed and recognized by an experienced and vigilant eye.

Golden Hand Standards vs. Transaction Rate of Grafts

Our total transaction rate at Gur Hair Transplant is as little as 5-10 grafts for every 3000 grafts, or in other term this rate is ignorable.

Our partial transection rate at Gur Hair Transplantis less than 10%.

During the collection process if we come across with any graft with a damaged matrix, these grafts ARE NOT included in the overall graft number.

Conclusion

The Golden Hand Standards practiced by Dr. Gokhan Gur are of significant importance due to the reasons mentioned above. And with these standards, we are able to minimize the graft loss rate during all our procedures. Finally, these standards lay out the foundation for our limitation to not performing a hair implant operation over 3000 grafts per day.

The main objective of the Golden Hand Standards is to achieve a natural looking and high quality result. Trying to implant more than 3000 grafts a day in one session would steer us away from these standards.
