Understanding the Donor & the Recipient Site in Hair Transplantation


The scalp anatomy scientifically illustrates five layers and the outermost part of the scalp being divided into- the Crown region, the Temple region, the Frontal region, the Parietal region, Mid Scalp region, and the Occipital region.

Understanding the potential donor site to produce viable donor hairs is a work of the surgeon before a hair transplant in Chandigarh in order to create natural results after the surgery and similarly, both donor site and recipient site evaluation is crucial

The Donor Site


The human donor sites are the back and sides of the scalp since they are hardly affected by the DHT hormone. Unlike in some women, these regions are fuller in males enabling a hair transplant surgery to be carried out.

The selected hair transplant technique highly determines the extraction procedure; i.e. use of micropunches (FUE) or a blade (FUT). While extracting the hairs, these are maintained;

  • Minimal scarring
  • No trauma
  • Accurate dimensions of the donor strips
  • Faster healing wound
  • No damage to the hair follicles and tissue

The Recipient Site


This site is first of all prepared after which, coronal, lateral, and horizontal slits are made using micropunches or other instruments since patients differ. The slit depth and coverage are carefully observed by the surgeon to promote excellent blood supply, natural results, and a better density
