No good donor area? No worries! Your hairs from other body parts can be used to cover / thicken up scalp! Body hair transplant doesn’t mean --as many might consider from the name-- grafting live hair follicles to the different body parts. It’s vice-versa. It means taking body hairs to transplant on the head when donor area of the scalp is incapable of providing sufficient graft to cover your head. The extraction procedure is essentially FUE which is knife-free and virtually scar-free; and thus pain-free to a great extent. Body parts from cheeks, chest, abdomen, hands and legs (even underarm and pubic area) can serve as a donor grafts. The process is a big hope for the people suffering from severe hair loss / baldness, including type VI / VII.
Body hair transplant is used only when the chances of yielding good results from other type of transplant are very low. The reason of its low usage is the difference in the texture of the hairs taken from other body parts and head hair. However, for some people it turns out to be a distinct advantage on the looks. For those who want to increase the density of hair but have limited donor area or have already gone through repeated hair transplants can also use this. If you sport great beard, thick and shiny, you are in luck because these matches the most to the scalp hairs making this transplant and immediate choice for both the patient and the hair expert. Since there is no linear scar, no one would be really able to see anything amiss.
At its basic, it is Follicular Unit Extraction method to extract but it would need some extra care and precision because the hair grafts from body parts other than scalp contains 1 or 2 hair grafts that to coming out of different direction and having completely different texture. Correct extraction and hydrated storage is a must for the process for best end results. Also, you must remain aware that the growth cycle of the hairs other than scalp have different growth cycles so you scalp and also you need to adjust with the appearance and the time it takes for you to look and feel normal.
Once transplanted, the hair wouldn’t grow more than 5 cm in general, so trimming becomes a necessity. Also thickness, curl and direction of the hair would be vastly different from those of the original hair so planting the grafts aesthetically is a serious responsibility of the doctor. Since the process requires extra care, you must perform extensive research on the aspect of experience of the doctor to perform your transplant.
