Can an FUE Hair Transplant Use Donor Hair from Outside the Permanent Zone?March 9th, 2005
Q: If someone doesn’t have enough donor hair, do you ever perform an FUE hair transplant using donor hair from outside the permanent hair zone? — M.V., Nashville, TN
A: No. If hair was taken from outside the permanent zone as the surrounding hair continued to bald, the scars from FUE, although small, would become visible.
In addition, the transplanted hair would not be permanent, and over time would eventually fall out.
