How Should the Harvested Hair Grafts Be Stored?


Hair transplant is a long surgical procedure that takes 6-8 hours. Therefore, it is essential to ensure storage of the harvested grafts. One might assume after a tissue is harvested from the body, it can remain alive for a few minutes. However, as the hair transplant takes 6-8 hours, we give energizing active agents to the grafts outside of the body, and keep them in a cold and moist environment that has been balanced with electrolytes. Storing the grafts in only moist, usual saline environments is often not enough. A special and balanced regeneration saline to the store grafts in, should be ready to use during the operation.
