The first success principle of the FUE hair transplant technique is that in one session of an excellent hair transplantation procedure, a maximum of 600 out of 3000 follicular unit grafts should contain only one hair strand.





       Frontal Hairline:

  • It is the creation of the new hairline which reflects the mastery and aesthetic success of FUE hair transplant. The design of the new hairline depends on the patient’s age, the potential future hair loss of the natural hair, and it aims to solve current aesthetic and cosmetic needs.

  • From artistic, and cosmetic perspective, the follicular units used for the hairline should be picked up from the collected grafts which containing a single hair strand. The ones transplanted in the second row behind the hairline should be double thin hair strands.


      Bridge Zone (Midscalp):

  • It is the area where the fullest look in hair transplant should be achieved. In order to do that, the double and triple grafts are collected and transplanted in that area. The density in the bridge zone should finish the natural look of the hairline when the results are seen within 12 months.

  • Vertex or Crown: 

  • It is difficult to conduct transplant in this area, and it is taken care of in the second session. Patients with Norwood classification 4-5-6 are not recommended to cover this area first. The results in this zone are seen very late and because of the difficulty of transplanting hair in this area, the growing ratio relatively declines. Thick and strong grafts are recommended for this zone/area.

Density Planning    


The transition between the hairline with high numbers of grafts containing single and double hair strands and the bridge area with grafts that are thicker with three hair strands should not be visible (should be natural-looking and smooth).

We are upholding about 30-35 graft per square cm (approximately 70-80 hair strands) which are necessary for a satisfying density. This number may increase for patients with thin hair strands. In the hairline, it is important to achieve a density with 70-80 hair strands (since most of the grafts will have a single hair strand, 50-55 graft per square cm.)

Dense Packing: In FUE hair transplantation, the density plan may change when the packing is 50 and above for grafts with double and triple hair strands in square cm.


Creating Holes (Extraction): The holes have to be in appropriate depth and width, and have to accommodate single, double, and triple follicular unit structures. The holes made in the recipient area have to have a specific angle and direction in order to cover the bold spot as much as possible. When combined with density plan, creating appropriate holes completes the aesthetic and surgical stages of the transplant. 

Transplanting the grafts: The follicular units are placed in these tiny holes one by one according to the density plan. While transplanting the units, the follicles must be protected.



Golden Hand Extraction and Harvesting Quality: Correct transplant area – Appropriate and natural density measuring – Opening correct transplant holes. Actually, the hair transplantation is a growing vision; it is a surgical initiative born from a wide spectrum that creates innovating perception through experience. This surgical initiative can be achieved only by an expert physician with innovative vision (DOCTOR MADE FUE).

The duration of operation and total aesthetic quality go hand-in-hand. In order to achieve the total quality, the duration of the operation should be kept at the optimal level when Golden Hand Standards are met.

According to long-term clinical research, observation, and experience, the best plan of the follicular unit extraction in hair transplant should not exceed 3500 grafts per day. Otherwise, the clinic may risk:

  • Damaging the donor area and causing scars,
  • Repeatition of anesthesia,
  • Declining quality as the medical team gets tired,
  • Declining patient’s comfort and patience.



Golden Hand Standards in FUE Hair Transplant



Hair Transplant is a very effective cure for baldness. Minimizing graft damage and maximizing the productivity of hair transplant are very important factors. In Turkey, there are a lot of clinics which are ignoring these standards. Therefore, it is important to read this article that may help you choose the best hair transplant doctor or clinic:

The Golden Hand Standards are quality standards practiced by Dr. Gokhan Gur to minimize the possibility of graft damage and maximize natural results during hair transplant procedures.

These standards also ensure that the donor area does not have any scars, and it stays healthy for potential future hair transplant procedures if needed by patients.

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

FUE Grafts




Intact graft: This term refers to the entire structure of healthy hair follicles, including intact structures of the root, the bulb and the shaft that have suffered no trauma during the process of extraction.



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



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


The advantages of the Golden Hand Standards:

√ Homogenic distribution during removal

√ Avoiding aggresive removal

√ Leaving no scars in the donor area

√ Punch use with proper diameter and depth

√ Very few partial transections

√ Negligible total number of transection


Golden Hand Standards vs. Transection Rate of Grafts

Our total transection rate at Gur Hair Transplant is as little as 5-10 grafts for every 3000 grafts, which is a neglectable rate.

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

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


The Golden Hand Standards practiced by Dr. Gokhan Gur has significant importance for to the reasons mentioned above. Thanks to these standards, we are able to minimize the graft loss rate during all our procedures. Finally, these standards limit us to 3000- 3500 implanted hair grafts per day.

The main objective of the Golden Hand Standards is to achieve a natural looking high-quality result. Trying to implant over 3000 - 3500 grafts a day in one session would steer us away from these standards and natural looks.

Incisions smaller than 1 MM DIAMETER during channel opening procedure:

The intact (undamaged) grafts collected with respect to the Golden Hand Standards MUST be placed in correct-size channels that fit the diameters of grafts exactly. This is the number one rule in achieving natural-looking result of a hair transplant operation.

The channel opening in the right angle and depth is a crucial factor as they are the incubator area for the grafts, and the survival of them depends on it.

If the grafts are inserted into channels with larger diameters, then they cannot adapt to their new environment and this would cause dents and holes in the scalp and hair roots.

Likewise, if the grafts are forced to be planted into smaller size channels, then the grafts would get damaged, which causes reduced growth rate and lower density in the recipient area. 

Therefore, the grafts MUST be transplanted into the channels opened with the right dimensions, leaving no scars ensuring a natural look and high density. Transporting the grafts, which are harvested by using 0,8 and 0,9 mm size punch, into the incisions that are smaller than 1mm diameter is the most important aspect of achieving total aesthetic quality in FUE hair transplant operations.

The ultimate step to achieve the Golden Hand Standards is respecting the UNDER 1 MM diameter of the incisions rule while opening the channels in the recipient area.
