Body Hair Transplant

In most hair transplant procedures usually, scalp hair is used for transplant. This is only possible if the patient has a good quality and amount of hair in their donor’s area which is mostly the back of the head. In cases where the patients do not have a good donors area to serve the purpose. In such cases, the hair surgeons may use hair from the body e.g. they may transplant beard hair to the head. Most patients call body hair transplant as chest hair transplant but mostly it means that the chest area is used to serve as donor area for other areas of the body that are hairless.

Although there is always a slight or unnoticeable difference in the texture & thickness of the hair extracted from the donor’s areas of the body as it actually provides a distinct advantage in many cases like:

  • Where the donor area is limited to the scalp it is for patients looking to cover the complete area.
  • Achieving higher density of hair is sometimes not easy to with the limitation of available hair grafts that can be extracted from the scalp in one sitting.
  • Some serious cases like burns etc where there is not much hair left on the donor’s area

Hair extracted from the beard, legs, shoulders, abdomen, Arms, the Underarm or Pubic area may be used during body hair transplant surgery procedure. Body hair transplant is generally done through FUE hair transplant procedure that leaves no linear scar at the end of the hair transplant surgery. Beard is most suitable as a donor’s area as its hair matches exactly with the scalp hair and also because hair from the beard is considered good and permanent.

Who Should Undergo Body Hair Transplant?

Normally patients who have a very weak donor area, have undergone repeated hair transplants, or have caught some kind of alopecia are right candidates for body hair transplant surgery procedure. It is important to understand that if the donor area or the grafts are weak, it is most likely to see a compromise in the result. Patients with insufficient hair in the donor area are unsuitable for a normal transplant.

Hairs are extracted by using special punches that do not leave visible marks behind. The USP of ALCS Clinics is that even in such cases virtually no visible linear scar is left behind from the areas where extraction is being done

Differences Between A BHT-FUE and A Conventional FUE

The technique used for a body hair transplant surgery is basically Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery or one by one. The donor areas which extend from the scalp hair to beard, chest, arms, legs etc. BHT procedure is used mainly in cases where the donor area on the head is no longer suitable for the extraction of hair or it is not dense enough to be considered for a facial hair transplantation surgery.

After a thorough consultation, the possibility of a facial hair transplant surgery is considered for the body. If all the necessary requirements are met, follicular units may be extracted directly from a different area of the body such as the chest, abdomen, arms or the legs and transplanted to the scalp.

The hair grafts taken in BHT procedure are popularly known to have different growth cycle but a concrete study is yet to prove. Also, these are different from scalp grafts as these contain only 1 hair compared to 1 to 4 hairs in scalp grafts.

Important Things to Consider in BHT

The experience of the cosmetic surgeon during a BHT is important because the body hairs are quite different from Scalp Hair. The experience of the entire cosmetic team is different in a BHT for the same reason.  The body hair needs to be mixed properly with scalp hair especially the colour and type of the hair.

The correct extraction of hair from the donor’s area, storage and hydration of the extracted grafts

The slits that determine the direction should be given very carefully.

Minimum FTR: A careful approach and the use of the right technique for facial hair transplant, damaging as few grafts as possible.

How to Choose the Best Surgeon for Your Body Hair Transplant Surgery?

To achieve the desired goal of your face you need to be careful and patient.

When choosing the right surgeon for body hair transplant surgery in India or anywhere else it is important to look at all of the following:

  • Experience: Majority of cosmetic Surgeons will often highlight their accomplishments in the field of cosmetic surgery in Jaipur. As with anything, it’s always important to double check and verify that what the surgeon is saying is true.
  • Detailed Consultation: The consultation is arguably the opportunity for you to ask all sorts of questions you have in mind regarding body transplant surgery.  A thorough consultation also involves a review of medical history including any existing medical conditions. All these factors help the surgeon to custom-tailor the operation to best meet the needs of each patient.
  • Before & After Pictures: -Many times, comparing before and after pictures of your body with several different plastic surgeons successful body hair transplant surgery procedures can be beneficial to patients when determining which surgeon to go with. However, keep in mind that usually, you are only seeing the best results.

Cost of Body Hair Transplant Surgery

When it comes to the cost of body transplant surgery the total cost of the hair transplant surgery is determined by the number of grafts required; which differs from person to person depending upon the area of baldness over one’s head. It can be calculated by a very simple formula:

Total cost of the hair transplant = Number of Grafts X Price per graft

It is to noted that the charges are on basis of ‘per graft’ or ‘per follicular unit’, and not ‘per hair’. As the majority of the grafts or follicular units contain 2-3 hair, so for example, if you are paying for 1000 grafts, you will get approximately 2500 hair transplanted.

Pro’s and cons of body hair transplant

Advantages of Body Hair Transplant

The use of body hair makes a hair transplant surgery easier for patients with limited donor hair on their heads. At present, there is no available technique to create or clone hair follicles. Hair from one person cannot be transplanted with someone else’s hair. In this scenario, use of body hair remains the only option for the patients with limited donor hair on their heads.

Disadvantages of Body Hair Transplant

Although body hair transplant surgery appears to be an opportunity for most patients to regain their lost hair, it has some disadvantages to it as well. Firstly, extracting hair from the donor’s area of the body is more difficult when compared to extracting hair from the scalp. FUE hair transplant surgery is already a time-consuming procedure, and extracting body hair makes it even more time-consuming.

The body hair on your body is not of same quality as the hair on our head. Body hair differs in their length, texture, and colour. Furthermore, hair on the head is usually in a group of 1-4 hair. These groups fo hair are known as hair grafts. On the other hand, the body hairs are always single strands. Due to these reasons, body hair does not produce the same results as scalp hair.

How to Get the Most Out of Body Hair Transplant

The optimum way to obtain the best results from body hair transplant is to use a combination of body hair and scalp hair to cover the bald patch. This approach provides better volume and a natural looking hair. Furthermore, some hair on your body may have better length and texture. Usually, beard hair is an ideal match with scalp hair due to its length and texture.

Despite various downsides, body hair transplant is gaining popularity among most hair loss patients to have their hair and confidence back.

Body hair transplant is done using a method by extracting your hair from your body parts and planting them into your scalp. So, even if you lack enough healthy hair on your head that cover the bald patch, visit ALCS Jaipur and the experts will help you by combining their scalp hair transplant and body hair transplant.
