Hair transplantation

Hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves the harvesting of the hair grafts from the donor area and their transplantation at the desired bald area.

Donor area in hair transplant

As you would have heard that in hair transplant the donor area is selected for the harvesting of hair follicles. The donor area refers to the area from where the hair roots are handpicked during the process of hair transplant by either FUT technique or FUE technique. The donor area is selected based on the residence of the hair roots in these areas which should be permanent or DHT resistant. Specifically for harvesting the permanent hair roots are selected which do not possess the androgenic receptors are thus are not influenced under the action of the androgens.

The common donor area selected for the hair transplant includes the back and sides of the head, chest area, axilla, beard or pubic hairs. Selection of the donor area is judiciously done by the hair transplant surgeon during the consult based on the area of baldness, hair density at the donor area and need of the hair grafts at the recipient site.

Overharvesting and violation of safe donor area: what does it mean?

Let’s know what is donor zone of scalp? Actually donor zone is the area which specifically is that zone comprising the permanent or DHT resistant hair roots. The importance of this area is that if the hair roots are harvested from this area the results are going to be permanent for sure which the biggest advantage of the hair transplant procedure is.

In most cases under the hands of inexperienced surgeons, the surgeon tries to overharvest the area in the hope of providing the high density hair transplant or in order to compensate the higher damage of hair grafts they cause during the procedure. In both the ways, the end result is negative impact on the final outcomes as the hair root won’t survive and you tend to lose them after transplantation.

So it is necessary to choose the right area for the harvesting of the hair roots which is referred as safe area. There are chances when you over harvest the donor area, the hair density at the donor area deplete and the donor area look scanty which is again failed hair transplant.

So the epilogue is in order to achieve the best outcomes and saving your hair follicles, you need to find the right hands for the procedure.
