Evaluating the Donor & Recipient Sites
Are you considering a hair transplant? Expect to get a thorough scalp examination from a hair transplant surgeon in order to ascertain your candidacy. Scalp examinations generally aid in;
- Ascertaining the number of hair follicles available
- Defining the amount of donor hair follicles available and required
- Defining the extent of baldness or hair thinning
Basically, the donor and the recipient regions are a major concern before a hair transplant in Delhi. This is why
The Donor Region
The donor region is that part of the scalp where hair follicles intended to be implanted in the recipient region are removed. Generally, the sides or back of the scalp serve as potential donor areas for the FUT technique, whereas with the FUE technique, the rest of the body, such as the arms, pubic, chest, and beards can be used to extract hair follicles.
During the FUT technique, a strip containing 2 or more hair follicles (units) is cut from the back of the scalp. The strip is then dissected in a laboratory to attain individual hair follicles.
With the FUE technique, hair follicles are extracted individually and also implanted individually.
The Recipient Region
It is simply the bald region, normally at the crown or downward at the back of the scalp. This region must be evaluated to ascertain the number of hair follicles required to implanted during the surgery. By evaluating the entire scalp, the surgeon is able to select the suitable hair transplant procedure.
