What is the Donor Area 

The part where the hair follicles are removed is called donor. In hair transplant operations, the nape of the neck is usually used as the donor area. However, if deemed necessary, beard or chest parts can also be preferred as donor.

The hair taken from the donor area is expressed as grafts. Each graft contains between 1 and 4 hair follicles. The nape of the neck is the most preferred donor area. The high density of hair in the region is the biggest reason for this preference. In addition, the hair on the back of the head is preferred in hair transplant because it consists of hair that is genetically resistant to hair loss.

Why should the donor area be protected?

Protection of the donor area is one of the necessary steps for the successful completion of the hair transplant procedure. Contrary to the general opinion, the donor area is not a non-exhaustible area. After the hair is removed from the donor area for hair transplant operation, the hair in this area does not come back.

Therefore, when removing hair grafts from the donor area, they should be removed in a planned manner without disturbing the general appearance of the donor area after hair transplant. In addition, if a second hair transplant is desired, there should be enough grafts in the donor area.

A patient with this problem may need hair transplant again. Therefore, the donor area should be healthy and fertile after the first hair transplant.

How is hair removed from the donor area?

Hair transplant is basically a process consisting of 3 stages. The first stage is the sedation procedure to numb the scalp and prepare the patient for the operation. Then, hair grafts are extracted from the donor area for 3-4 hours. In the last stage, the collected hair follicles are transplanted to the areas where the patient has a hair deficit.

Hair grafts are removed one by one from the donor area with devices called micro motor. Hair grafts usually consist of 1-4 hair strands. Hair grafts are kept in containers with solution together with the accompanying tissue. Thanks to this process, the hair follicles do not die, but are kept alive and made ready for transplant. After the graft collection process is completed, the hair transplant process is started.

How Does the Donor Area Look After the Procedure?

How Many Grafts Can Be Removed From The Donor Area?

According to an article published in the US National Library of Medicine (NLM), a maximum of 6250 grafts can be removed from the donor area. A person has approximately 50,000 follicular units of hair on the scalp. While 37,500 of these are located on the front of the person, the remaining 12,500 follicular units are located in the nape area. In order not to spoil the general appearance of the donor area, a maximum of 50% of the units can be removed from this area. This corresponds to 6250 follicular units.

How does the donor area heal after the operation?

After the hair transplant operation, the donor area heals after 1 month and regains its old appearance. In this process, the wounds in the nape area scab first, and then the scabs fall off. During the scabbing process, the patient should not interfere with the scabs and should not touch the scabs too much. Otherwise, the healing process of the area will be prolonged.

Will the hair in the donor area grow back after a hair transplant?

With the help of a micromotor, the hair follicles taken from the donor area do not grow again. However, the remaining hair grows back. The removal of hair grafts in a manner planned by hair transplant specialists preserves the general appearance of the donor area. The growth of the remaining hair allows the donor area to regain its former appearance.

Will there be a scar in the donor area after the operation?

It is very difficult for a patient with severe hair loss to have a hair transplant if there are not enough grafts in the donor area.
