There are two main aspects of hair restoration procedure-
- Donor area
- Recipient area
Let us discuss how the donor area is quintessential for the hair transplant procedure.
- What is the exact implication of the donor area?
The donor area has great significance in the hair transplantation procedure. The donor area can be defined as that part of the body that has good growth and density of hair. And That can be able to provide grafts of hair to the recipient area. The recipient area can be defined in simple terms as the hair loss affected area. This area is treated by using different hair restoration techniques. Usually, it becomes a matter of big efforts to make this area respond to the restored hairs.
- Why is the significance of the donor area in the context of the Hair Transplant?
As we have already discussed the donor area has its importance in the hair restoration procedure. It is quite relevant to mention here that the donor area should be of the same Deoxyribose nucleic acid (DNA) as the recipient area.
The donor area is initially examined to find out whether the hair grafts will be able to flourish in the recipient area. There are priorities in the determination of the ideal donor area.
Initially, the backside of the head is deemed to be the ideal choice of being the donor area. The backside of the head could be proved as the ideal choice for the restoration procedure is to be performed at the front of the head. To clarify that, the adjoining temporal area is the first choice.
After that in any case, a beard is the second preference. There are many advantages to using beard hair also. It is because that hair grows under the influence of DHT.
- How should the determination of donor area be done in the context of Hair Transplantation?
It is to be borne in mind that in the case of a woman, there is no such choice of donor areas. They do only have the scalp area as the donor area.
But male patients do have a variety of choices like:
- Abdominal hair
- Chest hair
- Beard hair
- Scalp hair
- FUE & FUT- Two Hair Transplantation stratagem
There is basically the advent of two techniques or methods to do away with the baldness to date. These two techniques can be named Follicular unit transplantation and follicular unit extraction.
The implantation method of both the stratagem or procedures is the same. But the variation can be seen in the aspect of extraction, recovery, invasiveness, etc.
