How Long Can a Hair Graft Stay Alive Before Being Transplanted?

Hair Graft Stay Alive Before Being Transplanted

This depends on the graft. Graft is the name given to any tissue which we harvest from a body site and transplant to a recipient site during plastic surgeries. If this tissue consists of hair follicles, we call it a hair or follicular graft. Follicular grafts must be stored under the right conditions in the correct environments in order to keep them alive. If they are stored correctly, they can live approximately 12-18 hours.
