Body Hair Transplant incorporates transferring hair from different parts of the body to the head and additionally, transplanting hairs to the other body parts. It is a surgical procedure that can be successfully used to improve the patient’s appearance by utilizing body hair as the additional donor area for scalp hair transplantation.
This surgical treatment is performed by using the FUE technique and not by the conventional Strip/FUT extraction. It involves the extraction of hair from suitable body parts and then implanting those hair follicles into the scalp (recipient) areas having baldness.
The benefactor hair can be taken from the arms, legs, chest, stomach or back; as the length of these hairs is sufficient. With body hair transplant, smaller scale unites or single hairs make the most normal appearance of hair on the body.
The hair transplant candidates who have high level of baldness and do not have good donor area (back of the head) to serve the purpose appropriately, can go for this option. Also, the candidates who want more density/volume of hair on bald area can use their body hair along with scalp donor area.
