When it comes to undergoing a hair transplantation procedure, people always look more concerned about the safety of their recipient area. Well, they have a right to think so because every person can be impatient about their hair transplantation job and would like to see some growing hair after their procedure. However, the donor area’s condition after a hair transplant job is also important. There are not so many complications which are associated with the hair transplantation donor area but some people may suffer from some situations because of poor post-surgery hair care.
The donor area has the most powerful hair follicles on your body. The back of the head is mostly designated as the donor area for hair transplantation procedures. However, several areas on people’s bodies can also be designated as donor areas. The hair follicles at the back of the head are the strongest ones because they mostly survive from male pattern baldness attacks. Male pattern baldness may affect not just your scalp but some of your other areas as well. For example, some people experience massive hair loss on their chest, arms, legs even eyebrows.
Donor area recovery does not mean the recovery of extracted hair follicles. Your scalp does not have the ability to create new hair follicles on the extraction sites. Donor area recovery refers to your healing from the hair follicle extraction wounds. Some people can sense the hair follicles extraction process during their hair transplantation procedures. It is possible even though they are administered strong local anesthetics.
After hair transplantation procedures, the donor area will probably suffer from redness which may remain a couple of weeks during your recovery. Some of the extracted hair follicle channels on your donor area may bleed because all of these hair follicles are independent organs. Some may react differently to the extraction procedure. However, most of them will have scabs on them which will later fall out after your skin’s recovery is completed.
