”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 the 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 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.
In any hair transplant procedure normally back side hair of the scalp are used in the 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 a Beard and chest hair transplant but mostly it means that the beard or chest to serves as a donor area. Though there is always some difference in texture & thickness of the hair taken from other parts it actually gives the distinct advantage in many cases like:
1. Limited donor area on the scalp (Grade VII patients) looking for covering the complete area.
2. Sometimes Patient wants higher density but it’s very difficult because of the limitation of grafts that can be extracted from the scalp in one sitting.
3. Some cases like burn scar or scar of previous strip surgery etc.
4. Body can also be used as donor farming, means implant them in the scalp donor area.
We can use the hair from Beard, Abdomen, Legs, Arms, Underarm. Body hair transplant is done through an FUE procedure that leaves no linear scar at the end of the surgery. Beard is very good, and as they are thick and Curley they give more visual density, and they are implanted along with scalp hair follicles.
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 very well benefit. It is stitchless technique and no severe pain.
Who Can Go For BHT ( Body Hair Transplant )?
Any patient who wants a large number of hairs on the scalp, poor donor area, has undergone repeated hair transplants, or have caught some kind of alopecia can go for a body hair transplant.
