In all hair transplant procedures, the potential donor areas are the most important factors. Obtaining the potential donor grafts for a hair transplant procedure is a task because they are supposed to have baldness-resistant properties, so that they may never fall-out after the surgery.

Necessary traits of Donor hair

The donor grafts are chosen by keeping in mind that they should never fall-out once transplanted, however, regular maintenance is necessary. The transplanted hair should be resistant to androgenic alopecia and other underlying conditions that can cause hair loss.

Conventional Donor areas

To fulfill the above condition, we extract donor hair from the sites of the scalp that are resistant to baldness.

The back and sides of the scalp are naturally resistant to male hormones called Dihydrotestosterone, which is responsible for most of the hair loss problems. This resistant property makes them the best sites for obtaining the donor grafts from hair transplants.

Other donor areas

In the case you don’t have the potential donor hair follicles available on your scalp, the donor grafts can be collected from the body parts such as in a body to scalp hair transplant.

Some recent experiments of the body to scalp hair transplants show promising results, but the results may not be similar for every individual. So, obtaining the donor hair from the scalp is still the best option.

Hair follicle Extraction

There are two commonly used method to extract hair follicles- Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). In FUT a strip of scalp is cut from the backsides, where there exist potential donor hair follicles. The strip is then put into a microscope to obtain the grafts. It leaves a small linear scar on the donor area of the scalp.

Follicular Unit Extract is another method of extracting hair follicles. In this method, singular follicular units are extracted with the help of a small punching tool. Hence, no strip cutting or major incisions are involved in this procedure. The FUE procedure is less invasive as compared to FUT and it leaves no scar on the scalp’s skin after the surgery.
