Balding is the major concern for many and, therefore, hair transplantation is the most common surgical procedure performed today. Hair transplantation is a treatment for androgenic alopecia or genetic baldness that helps you to solve the problem of baldness permanently. Transplantation is a process in which shifting of grafts containing hair follicles from the areas that are genetically resistant like, back and sides of the head to the balding area or the bald scalp takes place. Transplanted hair will retain the properties of donor site that we take from the lateral and occipital area of the scalp and they easily start re-growing at balder area life long, permanently without any side effects or maintenance. There is no need to take special precautions for maintaining the transplanted hair. It is safe, effective and a painless procedure. Hair Transplant can be used to cure for both the male as well as for Female pattern baldness.

Now-a-days hair transplantation procedure is a prevalent technique to regain your hair permanently and this can be only possible if the procedure has done under the guidance and assistance of an expert surgeon, who is well-versed in doing so from many years of his/her excellence with many numbers of patients.

In the hair transplant procedure, the doctor targets the safe donor areas to harvest the hair follicles and again implanted that on the bald portion to cover your head with densely packed hair. It is a very important concern for implanted hair should have the characteristics to re grow naturally with the same sustainability and quality as that of earlier and that is why the need for a cross-checking should be done before their harvesting from the scalp. It has seen that with the longest experience and proof that the hair from the occipital or back side of the scalp has the resistivity from the DHT (di-hydro testosterone hormone)/androgen and they don’t show the hair fall characteristics or any other genetically balding effect and this becomes the strong zone and doctor prefers the area of the back and sides of the scalp to harvest. Moreover the doctors discussed the safe donor zone in great detail. The conclusion was there really is no safe zone, but a safer zone. The reason behind saying this is that the hair extracted/harvested from this zone has greater chance of survival and growing forever compared hair extracted outside of these areas.

Characteristics/Definition of the safe & unsafe donor zone:

Safe Donor zone: The safe donor areas of scalp having those follicular units that is resistant to DHT and so hair will remain in these parts of the scalp for the persons’ entire life. In the hair transplant procedure follicular units are removed from the safe donor zone of the scalp and implanted into balding areas and these follicular units retain the properties of DHT resistance and due to this property it is resistant to the effect of hair falling and after transferring it to the bald areas, it remains has the same characteristics as that of donor hair roots in terms of their sustainability, thickness, growth-strength and colour and this phenomenon is known as donor dominance.

Unsafe Donor Zone: As compared to safe donor zone, the hair roots of unsafe zone are tending to fall out because those hair roots are sensitive to DHT/Androgen owing to the receptors presence in these zones’ hair roots. The unsafe zone is temples, crowns and vertex area 1st of the scalp, commonly the front or top of the head. In male-pattern baldness (MPB) hair loss, and thinning begins at the temples and the crowns and either thins out or falls out. The front and top of the scalp are the first areas to experience thinning and balding because these areas are not resistant to DHT/androgen hormone.

Technique of FUT hair Transplant procedure for densely packed hair:

The FUT stands for follicular Unit Transplant in which harvesting of hair follicles has prime concerns in terms of their taking off in the form of a strip that doctors takes from the occipital/lateral or back or sides of the head that is termed as a safe donor zone. The procedure is FUT is just different from FUE in terms of their strip harvesting and that gives impact on the safe donor zone role in the all over hair transplant procedure. It is very important that if we are taking the strip it must follow the rules of lifelong sustainability, viability and quality so that after the transplantation procedure you may sure about your re grown hair in terms of their thickness, colour, longevity and resistant to hair falling and thinning.

Follicular Unit Transplant procedure at a glance:

Follicular unit transplantation is also known as a strip harvesting method in which a strip of scalp containing hair grafts is harvested from safer zone, which is the area of the back and sides of the scalp also called as Occipital area of scalp. The donor area is now sutured with a Trichophytic closure so that the fissuring area will be remaining scar less. Trichophytic closure is an advanced technique of closing the wounded areas which have a scar less effect.

Trichophytic closure is a great solution for scar removal, in which edges of an incision are trimmed and closed in such a manner that hair, grows naturally and there won’t be any scar visible in the donor area.

Now the strip is dissected under the high magnification of the microscope so that we get the best possible number of hair grafts for the implantation process. Under high magnification of microscope and with the help of trained technicians Doctor get the large number of viable grafts for the implantation. The grafts are then placed in a Petri dish with holding solution, especially for tissue viability. Thereafter, these grafts are implanted into the balding areas and procedures become completed.

High Density Packing of hairs:

High Density Hair Transplant is an effort to give a density in which it is practically impossible to see through the appearance in the skin from frontal view or the top view. Practically speaking, it is around 60 to 70% of the natural density, i.e. around 60 to 70 follicular units per square centimetre area. The normal density cultivate is around 100 Fu/ area. So if somebody is trying for high density hair transplant the density should be more than 60 FUs/ areas.

The high density hair transplant practically possible for those patients, whose area of baldness is more than that the covered areas of hairs. ‘High density’ hair transplant is the latest type of hair transplant in the HT world. Density is a total number of hair follicular units in a square centimetre. Normal and natural hair density in an average male is 90 to 110 follicular units in a cm square. So that high-density transplant basically for those patients, who has a lower grade of baldness like a grade II or III or maybe for those patients, who required really a very high density to make worthy the hair implant cost.
