HAIR GRAFTS

Hair grafts are generally live and active roots of hairs. These grafts are taken from Donor Parts that bear ample number of hairs. The grafts contain 1 to 2 mm long hair with 1 or 1 to 6 hair roots. Hence a hair graft may produce at least 1 or 1 to 6 hairs. Moreover other person’s hair grafts cannot be transplanted nowadays due to immune system’s résistance. A person’s individual immune system does not accept hair grafts donated by other person. It is however possible through medicines that should be consumed for life time.

DONOR AREAS

Donor areas are the zones that bear sufficient natural hairs for collection of required number of grafts. Such areas are usually located on back and sides of scalp and these are baldness resistant zones. If a person does not contain donor parts on posterior head then such areas are decided on other parts of body by a hair transplant surgeon. A donor area may be present on posterior head, chest, shoulder, legs and back of a person. These are termed as donor areas because they donate hair grafts.

RECIPIENT AREAS

Recipient areas are those small, medium or big sized skin areas that generally show hair loss or baldness. These areas may be present on hairstyles supporting skin of an individual including head and face. Skin on head, eyebrow, eyelash, beard, or mustache may contain such zones. Injuries, cuts, and scars that show hair loss also come under such areas. These parts need hair transplantation only; however, some of these require both hair transplantation and plastic surgery.  These zones are very little in size if they are present on eyelash or eyebrow. The biggest such areas are found on head of balding people. To give natural look to hair transplant, generally 40 to 50 hair grafts taken from DONOR AREAS are transplanted in 1cm square area or such zone. These areas with angles are marked before each hair transplant procedure.

Hair Transplant Surgeon

Hair transplantation requires proper attention of a surgeon during the minor surgery that involves implementation of precious hair punches for collection of the grafts first.

Plantation of the grafts at recipient parts with minute blades at suitable angles is then completes a procedure of the surgery. This job can only be performed by an experienced and qualified hair transplant surgeon. A team of hair transplant professionals and the surgeon have to mark the donor parts and recipient parts on body or head of a person that needs hair transplant. The surgeon generally marks the donor and recipient parts and collects the grafts and transplants them during the surgical process with other member of the team.
