      Body Hair Transplant

      Body hair transplant is a specialized hair restoration technique that involves harvesting hair follicles from different areas of the body, such as the chest, back, or beard, and transplanting them to the scalp. This innovative approach expands the donor pool beyond traditional scalp hair, offering a viable solution for individuals with limited scalp donor hair or those seeking additional sources for transplantation. Body hair transplant has gained popularity for its versatility and ability to address challenging cases of hair loss with successful and natural-looking outcomes.

      Understanding Body Hair Loss

      Body Hair Transplant can be performed using hair follicles from chest, underarms, beard, pubic hair and other body areas. Though the best transplantation on scalp is from back of scalp or beard, but in case of Norwood Grade 6 or Norwood Grade 7 baldness, if patient wants full coverage in one session then donor pool needs to be expanded. Sometimes, body hair is considered in cases of failed hair transplant correction as well, when donor area is depleted.

      Body hair preferred for transplantation on Scalp

      After the back of scalp second best donor area is beard, reason being the similarity in hair cycle to the scalp hair. They also have long anagen phase, there is larger number of grafts availability and thicker caliber of hair resulting in minimal scarring as well. Beard can contribute atleast 3000-5000 grafts.

      Chest hair is the third option of graft extraction after scalp and beard. Though it is usually less preferred because of its suboptimal success rate in comparison to other donor areas.  Also the growth phase of chest hair is short in comparison to scalp and beard, so they may tend to remain in shedding phase for longer duration. Also rarely they have tendency to leave post inflammatory hyper or hypo-pigmentation. It is recommended to shave chest hair 7 days in advance to pick the fast growing hair.

      The other sources include underarms and pubic hair which are preferred in case of non availability of preferred donor areas. In certain cases, hair from legs and forearms can also be used.

      Who is the right candidate for Body Hair Transplantation?

      1. Who needs complete coverage in one sitting and have a wide area to cover.
      2. Who have poor donor area on scalp
      3. Who is a case of failed hair transplantation with depleted donor area on scalp
      4. Who have a retrograde thinning of the scalp donor.

      Benefits of Body Hair Loss

      • Expanded Donor Pool: Body hair transplant widens the donor hair options beyond the scalp, providing additional follicles for individuals with limited scalp donor availability.
      • Natural-Looking Results: The use of body hair in transplantation can yield natural-looking results, especially for those with unique hair textures or patterns that closely match the recipient site
      • Addressing Advanced Hair Loss: Body hair transplant is particularly beneficial for individuals with advanced stages of hair loss where traditional donor areas may not provide sufficient grafts for a successful transplant.
      • Versatility in Graft Placement: Body hair can be strategically placed to enhance density in specific areas, fill in scars, or refine the hairline, offering a versatile solution for various aesthetic concerns.
      • Reduced Healing Time: The extraction of body hair follicles often involves less downtime compared to traditional scalp donor sites, contributing to a quicker recovery process for the individual undergoing the procedure.
