I have a limited donor supply on my scalp. What are my options?

Question: If you have a limited donor supply of hair on you scalp, are there any other options for hair transplantation?

Answer: One limit of hair transplantation is the supply of donor hair.  An experienced hair transplantation surgeon will assess the potential donor hair based on the patient’s balding pattern, taking into account inevitable future hair loss.  This helps to avoid visibility of scars at the donor site should hair loss continue near that area.  On rare occasions, body hair, if of great amount and length, can be harvested by FUE and mixed in with scalp hair transplants.
