Is this the right donor area for FUE? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 5
That is higher than what most consider the donor area. But, unless your balding area reaches where the hairs were taken from, it shouldn't cause an issue. Definitely do all you can to slow down your balding and prevent that from happening.
That is Not Safe Donor Area
That area of extraction is not regarded as the safe donor area and at my clinic we never extract follicles at that level. At this point you may want to consider finasteride to help preserve lower crown hair or with more hair loss the punctate scars may become visible.
The donor area may be high but if you never go bald in that area, it may not be an issue. If you are concerned contact your doc
