what is Donor area in hair transplantation
Many people are exposed to baldness and hair loss due to several factors the most common are hormonal and genetic factors, these factors begin to affect the human gradually after several years of adulthood. Some areas of the head are affected greatly and become bald completely, while there are other areas do not affect by the factors of baldness a lot and may never be affected so that the hair remains strong and growing constantly and most importantly it is resistant to baldness….
Hence came the idea of the donor area, which is the key to the process of hair transplantation. These areas of hair that have not been affected by baldness and hair loss can be considered a valuable stock of human hair or can be expressed as a mobile hair bank!
The donor area is a key factor in the hair transplant process and the reason for the donor’s name is that when hair transplantation, hair roots are taken from it and then distributed in the rest of the head areas affected by baldness.
Where is this donor area?
They are often located at the back of the head and on both sides of the head. This area of the head is very resistant to the baldness factors and hair that is taken from it to be used in hair transplantation is the same natural human hair (the same color, the same nature, the same method of growth) that is, if you have soft hair before baldness after hair transplant you will also have soft hair.
How to benefit from the donor area in the hair transplant process?
With a variety of ideas about hair transplantation, the source of hair that should be used in the transplantation process has been sought. Therefore, from the beginning, it was necessary to have an area from which hair could be extracted, and those areas of the head were the most suitable for this process Indeed, the donor area has been used in hair transplant operations. Initially, hair transplantation was done with FUT technique, but it was shown by observation that the FUT method used previously would leave a scar that can be clearly observed in the donor area.
Hair transplant techniques have evolved until FUE technique has emerged Which is currently being used. The good thing about FUE technique is that it does not leave any scars in the donor area, where the hair roots are extracted one by one using a very precise device.
Do gaps appear in the donor area after hair transplantation?
If the hair transplantation process is done using FUE technique well, no gaps should be shown in the donor area as the doctor often takes into account the extraction of hair follicles in a balanced manner so as not to leave gaps in the hair or disturbing effects.
Therefore, if the donor area is characterized by good density (it is often so.), the hair transplantation operation will not affect it negatively and often will not leave gaps or noticeable effects. so, your choice of the right doctor plays a role in this case where the doctor must take into account the density of your hair and the possibility of distribution to the receiving areas.
- The donor area is the cornerstone for hair transplantation as it is a strong area not affected by various baldness factors.
- The idea of using the donor area is innovative. When we take strong hair follicles and distribute them to areas affected by baldness, we have obtained full hair resistant to baldness.
