Donor Site (Area)

The area of the scalp (generally the back and sides) where hair-bearing skin is removed during a strip surgical hair restoration procedure. For hair transplants to be effective, the hair in this area must be permanent, i.e. not subject to the effects of DHT. The NeoGraft Automated Hair Transplantation system restores the hairline using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method to gently remove the individual follicles from the back of the head (the “donor area”) in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs. With NeoGraft (FUE) the donor site does not include excision of a strip of scalp.
