■ The donor area should not be more than 2 cm above an imaginary line connecting the tips of the patient's ears behind the head. Be careful not to harvest an overly large skin strip so that you will not have to discard hair follicles later.
■ When determining the size of the donor area, keep the preparation capacity of your transplantation team in mind! Only shorten hairs whose follicles are to be dissected later. Leave the remaining hairs as long as possible so that they will cover the donor site after transplantation.
