Body Hair Transplant
Body hair transplantation is designed to restore hair usually in the chest and abdomen area. It can also be applied to:
- Pubic hair
- Other desired area
BHT thickens the existing hair and also offers hair growth in those parts of the body where there is none.
Scalp donor hair is required for BHT. The growing demand to cover the bald area has made BHT popular in which hair follicles from other parts of the body are used as an additional source of grafts to cover the scalp or reconstruct any other body area. These body parts include:
- Pubic area
Body hair transplantation is a procedure chosen by those who want to restore hair in various body areas such as chest, abdomen, axilla, pubic area or any other area. The procedure is used to provide hair growth where there is none or to thicken the existing hair.
The absence of hair on certain areas may be caused by genetic problems, laser hair removal, burns or other types of accidents. Some of the patients desire to fill in only a limited area, such as central chest or the pubic triangle, while others desire thick hair on the central abdomen area or the entire chest. thanks to modern hair transplantation techniques, the procedure is highly successful and the result is close to perfection.
How body hair transplantation is performed
Using the Follicular Unit Extraction method the surgeon uses a special instrument to take single hair follicles from the donor area (the scalp or any other body area suitable for hair transplantation). The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The extracted hair follicles are put into special containers with preserving fluid. The donor area will heal in about a week, leaving no visible scars.
The grafts are then inserted into the recipient area and they number varies from 200 units to more than 3,400, depending on the desired density and the size of the bald region. The procedure lasts between three and eight hours and patients will be able to resume normal activities the second day after the hair transplantation. After two weeks the transplanted hair will fall out, but it will regrow after three months.
The only disadvantage of this procedure is the fact that the transplanted hair will have to be trimmed monthly if the donor hairs come from the scalp. For a natural result, the hair follicles are transplanted one by one and inserted at the exact direction and growth angle.
