Body hair transplantation is a procedure designed to restore hair most commonly to the chest and abdomen area, but can also be applied to the pubis, axilla, and any other area hair is desired, to both thicken the existing hair or to provide hair growth where there is none. The absence of hair could be due to genetics, prior electrolysis or laser hair removal, or even trauma due to surgery, burns or other types of accidents. Some patients seek to have restored only a thin amount of coverage or filling in of a limited area (i.e. central chest or pubic triangle), while others desire a thick chest and central abdomen area. Typically, for some of these cases, where maximum density is desired, a second procedure may be necessary.

This is a procedure in which Dr. Epstein has been a leader, performing an average of two surgeries per week. Because of his reputation and unique experience in this procedure, most patients travel in for a procedure. In addition, Dr. Dauer, who has spent time with Dr. Epstein, is similarly able to offer this procedure to patients in Los Angeles if preferred, with patients able to feel confident that their procedure will be performed correctly and yield aesthetic results.

The donor hairs come from the scalp, which typically grow like normal body hair in their texture and other characteristics, but with one exception – they continue to grow as if they were on the scalp – and therefore need to be trimmed monthly. Once transplanted, the hairs are permanent. To provide a natural appearance, the hairs are transplanted as one and two hair grafts, the natural way body hair grows. Other steps taken to assure naturalness include: the careful placement of the grafts at the exact correct angle and direction, the use of all-microscopically dissected grafts that can be placed in the smallest possible incisions so as to minimize scarring, and even the aesthetic distribution of any existing gray hairs into the restored areas. Note that these hairs transplanted into the body are no longer available for transplanting into the scalp if the patient desires to undergo restoration of any male pattern hair loss that may develop in the future, thus meaning that there will be fewer hairs available for this area.

As of now, there are very few surgeons who are truly experienced with this type of hair restoration procedure.
