BODY HAIR TRANSPLANT
Body hair transplant can refer to one of two opposite procedures: either removing hair from the body and placing it into the scalp or vice versa removing hair from the scalp to place it into the body. In the first scenario, men who want more coverage on the top of their head but no longer have transplantable scalp hairs can have hairs harvested and transplanted from the beard or chest into the head.
In the second aforementioned scenario, a man who desires to have more chest hair could use his scalp hair to be transplanted onto his chest to achieve that goal. To remove beard and chest hair and to place it into the scalp requires performing the FUE Method of hair harvesting, i.e., removing individual hairs from the chest using a small punch device. When hair is transplanted onto the chest from the scalp, either FUE or FU-strip methods can be used but the latter strip method is more commonly employed. Some doctors commonly perform corrective procedure and successfully uses a combination of body hair and beard hair to help improve one’s appearance. As mentioned above, the beard and chest hair can be used when the donor hair in the scalp has been depleted through numerous prior hair-transplant procedures. Typically, the beard hair is the preferred.
Beard hair typically has a more favourable calibre than chest hair when trying to restore hair density in the scalp. Second, beard hairs grow more consistently as well as longer and faster when transplanted to the scalp than chest hair. Third, hairs removed from the beard often heals very well and do not leave behind a visible area of hypopigmentation (loss of skin colour), which is more likely to happen when hair is harvested from the chest.
Nevertheless, chest hairs can still be a very important source to restore lost scalp hair when beard hair is depleted, unavailable, or non-existent. Additionally, chest hairs have a finer calibre that can be used to blend into beard hairs or used along the hairline for refinement of a previously transplanted result.
