Does Donor Hair Grow Back after FUE Hair Transplant in India?

A receding hairline causes much distress among men and women of all ages. For those who are suffering from androgenetic alopecia, getting a hair transplant procedure offers them a permanent solution to all hair loss problems. For patients who are considering the option of undergoing an FUE hair transplant in India, the first question that comes to your mind is whether you will get your donor hair back or not. The short answer: Yes, you will.

What is Donor Hair?

In a hair transplant surgery, healthy hair follicles are extracted from your donor area and implanted onto the recipient area. In most cases, the donor hairs are taken from the back portion of your head as it usually has a thick density of hair. The techniques of extracting the hair follicles differ in an FUE hair transplant and a FUT hair transplant in India.

In the FUE method, hair follicles are cherry-picked in groups of 1 to 4 hairs by strategically spreading out the donor area. This ensures that the hair follicles that get extracted are not too noticeable.

In the FUT method, hair follicles are extracted surgically like removing a strip of skin. This usually leaves a scar, but the incisions made are long and thin so they are not easily visible.

When Does Donor Hair Grow Back?

To be fully honest, the hair follicles that are extracted will not grow back. But the hairs in the rest of the donor site will come back as per the patient’s natural hair growth cycle. On average, it takes between 2 to 3 months after the hair transplant procedure for all the hairs in your donor site to grow back completely.

With an FUE hair transplant in India, once the donor hairs are back to your normal length, it becomes fairly impossible to distinguish the extracted hair follicles in a head full of hair. And when it comes to FUT hair transplants, the regrown hairs in your donor site help cover any incision marks left behind from the extraction process.
