With the FUE method it is possible to take hair from other parts of the body and move it to the head. When a body hair transplant is done, the hair is often taken from the chest.
There are different scenarios when a body hair transplant may be a suitable option:
When the donor area in the back of the head does not have enough grafts left after a previous hair transplant.
A body hair transplant can cover scars in the donor area that may have been caused by old transplantation methods, such as the FUT method.
If a patient’s hair in the back of the head is too thin to be able to give natural results in the donor area when the hair grows out. Then a body hair transplant can be used to fill out the transplantation area instead.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BODY HAIR TRANSPLANT AND REGULAR FUE
Hair technicians will often avoid taking hair from other parts of the body than the head. That is because it is more difficult extracting healthy grafts (hair follicle groups) from other parts of the body. When extracting hair from the donor area in the scalp, it is a lot easier to ensure that the grafts are kept healthy during extraction. The skin on the scalp is a lot thinner which makes it easier to extract a graft without it taking damage during the extraction. In the case of a body hair transplant, however, the skin is a lot softer which makes it more difficult taking out a healthy graft. Our doctors and hair technicians have many years of experience and are among the best in the industry, so we have the technical ability to extract healthy grafts, but it is something to keep in mind when having a body hair transplant elsewhere.
Another thing one should be aware of before having a body hair transplant is that the hair from other parts of the body differs to the hair quality on the head. This means that the transplanted hair may have a slight different texture to the rest of the hair on your head to begin with. This does not impair the quality of the hair follicle and does not complicate the healing process.
