What is Body Hair Transplant?
First off, let's clarify the terminology. Body hair transplant also goes by the acronym BHT. Sometimes there is a misconception that body hair transplant means giving certain parts of your body new hair growth. For example, men who were born without chest hair may desire to change that aspect of their body. However, this is not what our discussion here is about. For our purpose, body hair transplant means restoring scalp baldness using follicles donor from body parts. As a result, body-hair-to-scalp transplantation is probably a more appropriate term for our discussion.
For simplicity sake, we will continue to use body hair transplant or BHT for our discussion here.
Why Body Hair Transplant?
Hair transplantation is the process of removing permanent donor follicles from one part of the scalp and transplanting them to balding areas. In order for hair transplant to work, we need donor follicles. Needless to say, the most natural donor source for hair follicles is scalp or head donor.
Unfortunately, we all have limited supply of donor follicles in our scalp. Whatever we have at birth is whatever we have.
Before BHT is possible, the only donor source is from our scalp or head. If the patient has insufficient donor follicles from their head, there is not much a doctor can do. However, everything changed when body hair transplant became a reality.
With body hair transplant techniques, doctors are now able to tap into body grafts as an additional source of donor supply for patients. While body donor is not as perfect as head donor, they are nonetheless extremely valuable for patients with depleted head donor.
Typical body donor sources are beard, chest, arms, legs and in some rare instances even pubic hair can be a donor.
Hair Transplant Repair & Body Hair Transplant
Although body grafts donor do not appear as natural as head donor, they are excellent as fillers to improve existing hair density. Another great attribute of body hair is that they are excellent for repair patients.
Most doctors use body grafts donor as a last resort. This happens a lot for repair patients. Patients who have had bad hair transplants before often find that their head donor severely exhausted already. Without donor from body hair, there is no chance for repair for these patients.
