Hello and Welcome to Capital Hair Center

What Is A Hair Graft?

Hair loss is one of the most common health problems in the modern world. Even though there was a stigma attached to hair loss in men for years, it’s been recognized that hair loss in men, as well as hair loss in women, can have devastating consequences on a person’s well-being even if hair loss is viewed as an aesthetic problem. Not only hair loss can be an indicator of bigger problems, but even if hair loss was only due to genetic reasons, it wouldn’t mean that it didn’t cause health problems. Thanks to recognizing the effects of hair loss on mental health and other health-related problems, finding solutions for hair loss is not a taboo subject, especially for hair loss in men.

Rise of Hair Transplant Operations

Still, to this day, hair loss is viewed as something inevitable for most people. However, thanks to modern technologies which started in the 20th century, especially surgeons started to see hair loss as a problem that needed solving. Because of this modern view, hair transplant operations gained traction in the late 1950s and that is how the first hair grafts were used in hair transplant operations.

What Is A Hair Graft?

Hair graft is a term to describe a strip of skin that contains hair. In the late 1950s, these hair grafts were used through the FUT method. The FUT method in which long strips of skin were used as hair grafts to transplant hair. However, thanks to modern technologies, invasive methods like the FUT hair transplant method were abandoned and less invasive hair transplant methods like the FUE hair transplant method has being used for the last twenty years or so. Now, even though all hair transplant methods involve getting hair grafts from the donor area of a patient, these hair transplant methods are different because of the differences during the operation or the equipment that is used.

Hair Transplant Methods

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)

The FUE hair transplant method is now the most preferred hair transplant method for patients as well as hair transplant doctors. During an FUE hair transplant operation, a hair transplant doctor hair grafts from the donor area one by one and put these hair grafts into a special container for preservation during the channel opening on the recipient area. After the channel opening, hair grafts are implanted into the recipient area. Unlike the FUT method, hair grafts are not on big strips of skin but rather they are a little more than hair follicles. Because of this, the FUE method doesn’t give permanent scars, unlike the FUT method.

Sapphire FUE

Sapphire FUE may sound like it’s the FUE technique with a flourish, however, this is not the case. During an FUE surgery, the micromotor to open channels has small steel blades. Unlike the FUE surgery, Sapphire FUE’s micromotor to open channels has Sapphire-tipped blades. Thanks to these Sapphire-tipped blades, channel openings become even less invasive, the recovery time is shorter because of the healing properties of sapphire stones and finally, Sapphire-blades don’t get blunt easily unlike the steel blades.

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation)

DHI method is the latest hair transplant method that can be used for patients with minimal hair loss. Also known as unshaven hair transplant, the DHI method is the most popular choice for hair loss in women. If female hair loss is indeed genetic, the DHI method is the best and the only permanent way to recover from hair loss in women. Male pattern baldness can also be fixed with the DHI method as long as the hair loss isn’t too severe. During the DHI hair transplant, the hair transplant doctor does hair graft collection, channel opening, and hair graft implanting simultaneously. This kind of operation is possible thanks to a special medical called the Choi pen. When the doctor uses Choi pen, they just need to switch and angle the degree they’re working. Not every hair transplant expert is capable of doing the DHI method. Only the best hair transplant clinic in Turkey can provide successful results with the DHI method.


There’s a huge debate since the DHI method has become a popular choice which is: “FUE vs DHI method: Which to choose?” Even the best hair transplant doctor in Turkey don’t have a simple answer to this because the reality is much more complicated than a simple “FUE vs DHI method” A hair transplant method should be chosen based on a patient’s needs and the quality of the hair grafts on their scalp.

Hair Transplant in Turkey

The best hair transplant doctor in Turkey puts their patients through scalp analysis and various other tests to test the quality of their hair grafts.

Also, the best hair transplant clinic in Turkey should be capable of providing hair transplant operations to people with Afro hair loss.
