All About Donor Area and Recipient Area

Men suffer more with hair loss than women. Implementation of hair restoration techniques such as FUT (follicular unit transfer) and FUE (follicular unit extraction), ensures that your hairs will grow throughout their life in a natural way while being undetectable.

Any kind of hair transplant procedure involves performance between two sites – donor sites and recipient sites:

Donor Sites:

Donor site is usually a scalp from where the hair grafts are harvested to conduct the procedure. Security of this region is highly crucial particularly when the follicles are extracted from the back side of scalp. It is crucial to keep the scars nominal in the donor region as it is a key factor in deciding the final appearance of your hairline.

In FUT, strip is taken away from the donor site of scalp whilst in FUE, individual hair grafts are extracted from the scalp. FUT results into creating linear scar whilst in FUE tiny scars are made that are almost unnoticeable.

Recipient Sites

Recipient area is a bald region of scalp that needs hair restoration. A set of instruments is used to create the recipient site. The development of recipient site needs an extreme preparation such as horizontal slits are created to get a complete control on the angle and development of restored hair. It is a key step in deciding the final look of the transplanted hair.

After the transplant of follicular units, the hair grows unlike to sitting on other follicle. It helps in better describing the position and angle of graft in which it will likely to grow further.
