What is the Best Donor Area FUT Works On?

March 26, 2021

So you’re getting your hair together. Good on ye, mate. Many people merely dream about the likes of what you are on the verge of accomplishing. Way to be a go-getter, not just a talker. An FUT hair transplant will change your life! But what is the best donor area? FUT transplants are only as permanent as the hair harvested for implantation, after all.

The donor area is the area of your hair that “donates” some of its hair, not the area where the hair is being “donated” to. We want these “new” hairs to last as long as you do, so it’s important they’re taken from an the part of your hair that is most likely to stay the healthiest and never fall out.

This area is almost always somewhere on the side or back of your head, with individual variations for each person. Your surgeon will have the keenest sense of where the best donor area FUT will work on for you. Experience, training and education are all great testaments to that.

The Best Donor Area FUT Works On

For most people, hair loss occurs along the top of the head, either the front top, back top, or even just a generalized thinning over the whole top. So for most people, the best donor area FUT strips can be harvested from I somewhere in the last hair standing zone: the sides and back. This is not always the case, however, and your consultation with a certified and skilled expert in the field will be able to more accurately inform you as to your specific best donor area FUT should be harvested from.

The long-term progression of your particular pattern of hair loss must be estimated and taken into account by your hair transplant surgeon. There is no one easy, flawless predictor of exactly how long every hair on your head will last until it naturally falls out. The best donor area FUT strips can be harvested from therefore must be narrowed down to which hairs will likely fall out last, if ever.

More About FUT Transplants

Remember that FUT transplants remove a strip from your scalp, so the health of your scalp must also be taken into account. The scalp area that is in the best condition may greatly factor into the best donor area. FUT grafts fair best when taken from a healthy patch of hair and a healthy scalp. Fortunately, these two things tend to go hand in hand.
