Body Hair Transplantation (Body Hair Transplant)
Body hair transplantation involves removing grafts containing hair follicles from the back of the head and transferring them to areas with bald patches.
The density of the transplanted region is one of the most important aspects in ensuring a successful result in micro FUE hair transplantation. Even if all other parameters are favourable, there may be no satisfying outcomes if the transplanted hair density is insufficient.
In persons with severe hair loss, there may not be enough hair density in the back of the head or other donor regions to accommodate the appropriate number of grafts.
The body hair transplantation procedure is used at this time. Using this approach, hair transplants from the person’s chest, back, or beard are transplanted.
The FUE hair transplantation technology is used to accomplish body hair transplantation under local anaesthesia. The assessment determines if a person’s chest region is suitable for this surgery. This procedure alone will not provide a suitable result in patients with small-donor sites in the nape region in patients with small-donor sites.
Which Areas of The Body Are Ideal For Body-to-Scalp Hair Transplant?
The beard is perhaps the most attractive region. Beard hair is strong and sturdy. Along and below the jaw are the regions of the face that produce the most hair. The hair on the back of the neck and the top of the face isn’t as dense and doesn’t develop as lengthy.
Beard hair may be used to plan and increase density to places where there is a lack. We don’t usually add beard hair to the scalp on its own, although it is conceivable. We utilize a mix of head and beard hair to obtain the perfect appearance.
We may also use chest hair as a source of body hair. Because chest hair is finer than facial or scalp hair, it may create a feathered effect at the frontal hairline or for additional coverage in the crown region.
Other locations that may be utilized as donor hair for a hair transplant include the frontal hairline and temporal peaks. However, most of these are very thin and only appropriate for implanting the frontal hairline and temporal peaks. Arm, underarm, pubic, and thigh hair are examples.
The Following Are Some of The Drawbacks of Body Hair Transplantation
- The units consist of one or, in rare cases, two hairs: The extraction product (hairs/units) is much lower.
- Technical challenges: Corporal hair departs the skin at a sharper angle than scalp hair, resulting in a substantially higher transaction.
- Extraction velocity: In the scalp, the typical extraction rate is 300 units per hour. The optimum body hair transplantation rates are 100 and 400 units per hour.
- Coverage: Because there are fewer hairs per unit and they are often thinner, coverage is minimal.
Transplantation With Donor Hairs Taken From The Back, Chest, or Beard
This treatment may be quite beneficial to certain patients since body hair can provide substantial extra donor hair, especially when there is a lot of body hair and little scalp donor hair.
Additional donor regions are particularly advantageous for increasing overall hair thickness or filling in a crown area, both of which are treatment options that would not be possible for individuals with limited scalp donor hair.
The FUE procedure removes body hairs without creating a linear scar on the treated region. The body hair transplants are then implanted in the same manner as head hair grafts.
