Body Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. … Two techniques are available for hair transplant all over world—FUT & FUE. Biggest advantage of FUE is we can use body hair (beard, chest and Extremities) as donor hair for scalp.

Body Hair Transplant Surgery or “BHT” is an FUE procedure where the grafts (hair follicles) are individually removed by an ultra-fine punch tool from different parts of the patient’s body instead of the back of the scalp.  For example, from the beard, chest, back, arms or legs.it is very useful in advance grade of baldness as donor hair becomes limited in such cases. If beard and chest hair are good, they give very good result. Beard grafts are thick so give better visual impact, chest hair are used to give filling effect in between. So by using combination of scalp, beard and chest we can transplant all the bald area even in grade VII.

It is a very successful and viable procedure for restoring head hair, but there are a few things the Body Hair Transplant Surgery candidate should understand and consider carefully beforehand…for this consult your hair transplant surgeon.

Benefits of Body Hair Transplant Surgery

  1. The body acts as another donor area when the usual donor supply at the back of the head is insufficient.
  2. Most people want to remove the hair on their back, shoulders or chest, so the double benefit of Body Hair Transplant Surgery is that these unwanted hairs can be successfully utilised to thicken the density of hair on the head.
  3. The process is extremely simple and offers desired outcomes that can be achieved, if person wants to get more and more density of hair.

Side Effects of Hair Transplant Surgery

Side Effects of Hair Transplant Surgery

As such there are no side effects of hair transplant. After hair transplant one may feel slight pain, swelling & itchy scalp for few days only. These can be easily treated with simple medicines.

Pain

: There is actually very little pain involved with the actual hair transplant surgery. About half of the people who have the procedure done will not need any pain relievers at all. Most others take a mild pain reliever such as Tylenol for a few days, and that seems to be enough for them.

Itching : 

It is not unusual for itching to occur on areas affected by hair transplant surgery. Yet, it should not last more than a few days. Using shampoo to wash your hair every day will helps with this problem to diminish.

Swelling : 

Just about everyone who has had hair transplant surgery has experienced swelling in the forehead and around the eyes. This lasts for only a few days with the worst being of it appearing on the fourth day. For some, a black eye may result.

Numbness : 

Another common side effect of hair transplant surgery is numbness. Patients typically report feeling numbness for several weeks after the surgery. This is only temporary.

Thinning : 

If you have had hair transplant surgery, you may be alarmed to find that the hair you already had is actually getting thinner. This is a normal post-operative condition and the thickness comes back within a few months after surgery.

Bleeding : 

A side effect of hair transplant surgery may include some bleeding. Putting pressure on the area will usually stop the bleeding. In rare situations, the bleeding does not stop so it might be necessary for the surgeon to do some extra stitching to close the wounds

Hiccups : 

Yes, your read that correctly. Interestingly, one side effect of hair transplant surgery is having a case of the hiccups after the procedure. Only about 5 percent of the patients have this problem, but it can be troublesome if it lasts more than a few days as it can keep you from eating or sleeping properly. If this does occur, doctors have medications they can prescribe to help aide with this.

Infections : 

While rare, infections can also occur with hair transplant surgery. One reason they do not happen more often is that antibiotics are given before and after the procedure to prevent infections from even starting – so don’t get too worried about this possible side effect.

Cysts : 

Cysts can appear in the areas where hair is being transplanted, also called the recipient areas, but they do not usually last more than a few weeks and are rarely more than the size of small pimples.

Scarring : 

If you have keloid scarring after hair transplant surgery, it is probably because you are genetically inclined to have it. Very infrequently, patients have scarring that takes the form of ridges.

Body Hair Transplant (BHT)

Body hair Transplant is a hair transplant technique in which hair roots are extracted from body areas

other than scalp and implanted on bald area of scalp.”

BHT (Body Hair Transplant) is done using the same FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique, so it is also known as No stitch technique. BHT areas can be beard, chest, back, stomach area, legs and arms.BHT is done only in people suffering from extreme baldness, who have very less reserve or very thin hair at the back of their scalp. Thus this technique gives a big ray of hope to even those with severe (Type VI and VII) hair loss.

WHY BHT?

In any hair transplant procedure normally back side hair of scalp are used in transplant. But in many cases the patients do not have a good donor area to serve the purpose. In such cases, we can use hair from the body e.g. transplant beard to head. At Rejuvenate hair transplant center we are doing BHT routinely in such patients. Some people call this as Beard and chest hair transplant but mostly it means that beard or chest to serve as donor area. Though there is always some difference in texture & thickness of the hair taken from other parts but it actually gives distinct advantage in many cases like:

  •  Limited donor area on scalp (Grade VII patients) looking for covering the complete

area.

  • Sometimes Patient wants higher density but it’s very difficult because of the

limitation of grafts that can be extracted from scalp in one sitting.

  • Some cases like burns etc.

We can use the hair from Beard, Shoulders, Abdomen, Legs, Arms, Underarm. Body hair transplant is generally done through FUE procedure that leaves no linear scar at the end of the surgery. Beard is very good, its hair matches exactly with the scalp hair and also because hair from the beard is considered good and permanent.

Benefits of body hair transplant

Body Hair Transplant (BHT) as a major plus point may become donor hair because they are not genetically DHT susceptible hairs as some of the scalp hairs in MPB (Male Pattern Baldness). People who are suffering from severe baldness, having lost their hope after getting poor results from wrong hair transplant procedure can be very well benefited. It is stitch less technique and no severe pain.

WHO CAN GO FOR BHT?

Any patient who want large number of hairs on scalp, poor donor area, have undergone repeated hair transplants, or have caught some kind of alopecia can go for body hair transplant. At Rejuvenate hair transplant center BHT is used for extraction of hair follicles specially for successive stages of hair transplant.

LIMITATION OF BHT

  • BHT technique is possible only in patients who possess good hair on body.
  • Only the FUE method is suitable for harvesting body hair. Body hairs are shorter in length, are thinner and hence their extraction needs special technique and expertise.
  •  BHT technique is a blind technique of harvesting follicles, so there can be chances of follicle damage, depending on experience of surgeon.
  •  In BHT multiple small circular scars are given after extraction of follicles which are not visible.

RESULT

At Rejuvenate hair transplant center Body hair transplant is done as often as scalp hair transplants. The experience of the team in BHT is important because the direction and texture of hair are different. So the same need to be mixed properly with scalp hair. Growth is fairly predictable at three months. On a rare instance, a poor yield at 12 months changed to an excellent result between the 12 and 24 month time period. Though the use of BHT procedure shows remarkable results, but the right selection of patients is very important. This technique should be reserved only for persons who have extreme baldness and insufficient hair on the back of their scalp .Coverage in general is easier to achieve with scalp hair so this should be the first line of treatment for hair loss.

HOW MANY HAIR FOLLICLIES (hair) I NEED?

HOW MANY HAIR FOLLICLIES (hair) I NEED?

This is very common question we ask to our self and to hair transplant surgeon that to cover my baldness how many hairs or grafts I need.

Here I am giving you very simple chart ,you can make a rough judgment by seeing it and comparing your scalp status.

Note that this will give you just a rough idea and final decision will be done by your transplant surgeon. This chart is Norwood grading of male patterned baldness.

Even with the high degree of male pattern alopecia (VII degree), there are 10 to 12 thousand follicular units left on the back of the head and behind the ears. Out of them 6000 to 8000 thousand units can be taken for transplantation during one or several procedures.

  • This amount of follicular units is sufficient for coverage of bald area of any size. Amount needed for achievement of certain cosmetic effect in individual patient is being determined during face to face consultation.
  • The result depends on the structure of hair (diameter, strengthens, color etc.) and number of follicular units. Patient can determine approximate number of grafts they need to achieve good result according to the scheme given below.
