Donation area

In a hair transplant, groups of hair follicles (grafts) are taken from a donor area. The donation area is usually at the back of the head, near the neck.

It is also possible to take hair from other parts of the body – such as the chest. The hair on the neck and chest is genetically coded not to fall off, unlike the hair on the top of the head.

This means that when you move a hair follicle group, the associated hair will not fall off.

The price of a hair transplant varies depending on how many grafts are needed and can be taken from your donation area.

Donation area - before and after transplantation

Before a hair transplant, the donation area is shaved so that we can easily extract your grafts. It can be a difficult moment for many.

With a little planning, it is possible to cover the hair in the donation area in different ways. For example, if you have long hair, it is easy to cover the donation area afterwards.

Tricks to hide the donation area

The right donation area is important

It is important that we get to examine your donor area to see what possibilities and what type of hair loss you have. If your hair growth is too sparse in the donor area, it is not always wise to have a hair transplant.

If you are transplanting hair from an already thin neck, the transplant may result in further noticeable thinning of the neck.

You may have enough hair in the donation area but if we see that this hair is under the influence of hereditary hair loss, we will advise you against it.

What can the donation area look like after?

The hair follicles extracted from the neck do not grow back.

When we move a hair follicle, that hair follicle grows into the newly transplanted area. Therefore, we usually take hair from a larger section of the neck to make the donation area less noticeable.

However, if you are very thin-haired to begin with, the hair at the nape of your neck may feel thinner, especially when you have a short-cut hairstyle.
