The body hair transplant, also known as Body Hair Transplant (BHT) is a treatment in which body hair is extracted from areas such as chest, arms or beard to implant it in the head. In this way, baldness problems are solved.
This method of hair transplantation is recommended especially for patients with extensive alopecia. At Meyer & Alcaide Dermatología Capilar we are specialists in transplant treatments and we can help men with their alopecia problems. Body hair transplant is the ideal technique for patients with little hair due to insufficient follicular units, as this makes extraction in the donor area complex. It is also a complementary treatment to the FUE technique, which gives greater thickness to the hair.
What does the technique of body hair transplantation consist of?
First of all, it is necessary that a specialist performs a previous evaluation of the patient’s hair. Once this examination has been carried out, the most appropriate system to perform the hair transplant will be determined.
In this sense, body hair transplantation is the ideal technique when, in some cases, the donor area is not sufficient to cover the alopecia. For this, it is analyzed that the body hair of the candidate area is compatible, since depending on the area of the body and each person, the hair may not have the necessary characteristics.
The most effective follicular units of the body are those of the beard, as this is the type of hair we have that is most similar to that of the head. However, the maximum number of follicular units recommended for extraction is 800.
