Hair transplant is the most effective method to grow hair on a bald head. It would be fair to say that it is the only method capable to grow hair on completely bald patches. However, hair transplant cannot create any new hair. It needs existing hair somewhere on your head or body to use them as donor hair.
Body hair transplant is a useful technique for patients with limited donor hair on their heads. Body hair transplant uses FUE method to extract hair from any part of the body like beard, chest, or legs. These extracted hairs are then planted to the balding area of the head. Let us have a look at the advantages and disadvantages of the Body hair transplant.
The use of body hair makes a hair transplant possible for patients with limited donor hair on their heads. Currently, there is no technique to create or clone hair follicles. Hair cannot be donated either, i.e. one person cannot have a transplant with someone else’s hair. In this scenario, use of body hair remains the only option for the patients with limited donor hair on their heads.
Although body hair transplant presents an opportunity to many patients to regain their lost hair, it has some disadvantages as well. First, extracting donor hair from the body is more difficult as compared to extracting hair from the scalp. FUE is already a time taking procedure, and extracting body hair makes it even more time consuming.
Hair on our body is not of same quality as the hair on our head. Body hair differs in their length, texture, and color. Furthermore, hair on our head occurs as groups of 1-4 hair. These groups are known as grafts. On the other hand, our body hairs are always single strands. Due to these reasons, body hair does not produce the same results as scalp hair.
The best way to get good results from body hair transplant is to use a combination of body hair and scalp hair to cover the bald patch. This approach gives good volume and a natural look to your hair. Furthermore, some hair on your body may have good length and texture. Usually, beard hair is good match with scalp hair for their length and texture.
Despite the aforementioned downsides, body hair transplant is gaining popularity among hair loss patients to have their hair and confidence back.
Body hair transplant can extract hair from your body parts and plant them into your scalp. So, even if you don’t have enough healthy hair on your head to cover the bald thatch, come to us and our experts will help you by combining scalp hair transplant and body hair transplant.

"I was really pleased with my experience at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery. I had to cancel the first date I booked, because of my daughter, but when I called them the next day, they fit us in that afternoon, which was really good. My mum and I went to a free consultation for Laser Assisted Liposuction, and it went very well. We were really impressed with the doctor, Dr. Juan Tadeo Krogulec - he was lovely. He spent as long as we needed with us, and didn't rush us. He was really thorough and not only did he answer all of our questions, he answered others we hadn't even thought of asking! I think that when the time comes for treatment we'll probably be going with them.".
I am very satisfied with my results. I strongly recommend this clinic for every one who wants great result and its very cheap to :). Dr. Cagtay and his team are very professional and do take care of their patients.".
