An FUE hair transplant involves taking individual hair follicles from the donor part of the scalp and then transplanting them back into areas of the head that are suffering from male pattern baldness.
Donor hair is taken from the back of the head where there is healthy and permanent hair growth. Donor hair from the back of the head is also resistant to DHT which is the most common cause of male pattern baldness. Find out more about DHT here.
When these DHT resistant hair follicles are transplanted into a new area, they still retain this element meaning that the hair will be more likely to survive and stay unless it was genetically meant to fall out.
Hairs that have been transplanted from your donor area are also able to successfully root as they are from your own head. This is why hair transplanted from other areas or even other people will not be possible.
