By now you are aware that hair will probably be extracted from your body or scalp. This entirely depends on the hair density of the donor regions on your head. Extraction here is mainly done via a mechanical punch. For the FUT procedure, the donor region will be surgically excised from your scalp.
In some other FUE variants, a mechanical punch is usually used in isolating the hairs that will be extracted. After the isolation, the extracted grafts are individually extracted using sterile medical forceps. Notably, the hair follicles to be harvested depends on the size of your bald regions.
If your bald area is large, the surgeon may remove more hair from a donor site. Immediately after the extraction, the hair will be held in a petri dish filled with a HypoThermosol solution. This could last to a maximum of 3 hours depending on the transplant procedure you chose.
