Most Individuals who suffer from baldness consider a hair transplant to restore their hair. In a surgical hair restoration scalp is considered as the prime donor but in severe hair loss conditions, your scalp may no longer have enough hair follicles to donate to the recipient site. In these cases, the all-new body to scalp hair transplantation technique comes in.

Body to scalp hair transplant is an essential technique for sufferers who have limited donor hair supply on their head. Using the FUE technique, hair follicles are obtained from certain parts of the body, including beard, chest, back, and legs. The obtained hair tissues are then harvested at the recipient areas (where the baldness occur) of the scalp.

Here are few pros and cons of the body to scalp hair transplant.


The body to scalp hair transplantation is a life-changing procedure for those who don’t have donor hair supply on the scalp. It enables every sufferer of hair loss to get the strands back on his/her head like ever before.


In spite of the fact that body hair transplant gives a chance to numerous patients to recover their lost hair, it has a few detriments too. Plucking the donor hair follicles from the body is difficult as compared the extraction of hair from the scalp. Singular extraction of hair is already a time-consuming procedure and body hair extraction makes it even harder.

The hair on our body isn’t of the same quality as the hair on our head. Body hair varies in their length, surface, and shading. Besides, hair on our head happens as gatherings of 1-4 hair. These gatherings are known as unions. Then again, our body hairs are constantly single strands. Because of these reasons, body hair does not create similar outcomes as in the case of scalp hair transplant.
