How Do You Make Recipient Sites in a Hair Transplant?January 20th, 2011
Q: How do you make the recipient sites in a hair transplant? — N.P., New Delhi, India
A: I make the recipient sites using 19-, 20-, 21- and 22-gauge needles. The higher the number, the finer the needle. The hairline is done with a 21-gauge, which is really very tiny. Eyebrow sites are created with a 22-. When one draws blood in a routine blood test, an 18-g needle is used and, of course, there are no residual marks. The instruments we use are significantly finer than this.
