    Default Using someone elses hair for fue transplant?

    I was wondering if anyone has heard of someone using someone elses donor hair for their fue transplant?

    Could this work?

    Just thinking that if you ran out of a donor area to see if a friend with alot of hair would let you use theirs.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that the risk of the medications to prevent rejection outweighs any possible benefits. I could be wrong, but it makes sense to me.

    I think the hairs has to be your own... as your body will most likely rejects non-genetic hair that doesn't belong to you...
    But I'm not completely educated on this.

    Yeah thats what I was guessing also. I wonder if any of the doctors on here have tried it?

    I doubt if anyone has tried it as the complications of transplanting tissue and organs from one person to another are widely known. The problems are as described already - rejection by your body and the risks inherent to the drugs available to counter that rejection when used in life-saving organ transplantation.

    On a related note, many people who know nothing about how HTs work assume that it involves person to person transplantation, due to the common association of the word 'transplant' with organ donation. I've had to clear that up many times.
